Summary: Let me start this off by saying, while I LOVE this game, it isn't for everyone. But whatever you do, do NOT listen to the critics! For all fans of gore, metal, horror, and almost all classic splatterhouse fans, this game is one of the best! So, why id critics like IGN give it such terrible reviews? Well, NAMCO clearly spent too much money making a great game, and couldn't afford to bribe IGN like all the other video game companies did.
Summary: The new game is alright but I bought this because it contains the original arcade version of Splatterhouse as well as Splatterhouse 2 & 3 from the Genesis. The arcade version has never been officially released on any home console(except a TG-16 version a long time ago which wasn't arcade perfect but pretty close). The remake is extremely bloody/gory and the graphics are very detailed. But it's a game that I'll just play through once.
Summary: A great game for when you are stressed and irritated at life. Rather amazing how splattering something's guts all over a wall can be so therapeutic. Product arrived in a timely manner and I am more than pleased with the quality.
Summary: This may be the first time I've felt compelled to defend a game. Normally I only review crappy games so people don't waste their money. I just finished the game however and having heard a lot of very negative reviews I have to give my opinion. The BAD: Some crappy jumping mechanics (although there is very little jumping in the game), horrendous loading times (yes, it loads every time you die), and the last level being an escort mission!
A good revival for a game that just needed a little more love.

Summary: This reboot of SplatterHouse is a game which has a rough start, however if you stick with it, has a satisfying finish. It's a pity that the game ended on a cliffhanger, and apparently is not going to be resolved any time soon. Some of the issues I had with this game are the long load times, along with a few points in the game where I got lost. These could've probably been addressed if the game developers were allowed additional time to polish and optimize the game.
Summary: This is a very average game...maybe even a tad below average. However, if you're one of those people who is into gore and gratuitous violence, you may derive some entertainment from this title. It's not the prettiest game I've ever seen - the graphics are somewhere between XBOX and XBOX360 quality - not quite last gen, but not quite current gen either. Lots of button mashing is the name of the game.
