If you're a fan of rail shooters, and the initial investment doesn't put you off, House of the Dead Overkill: The Lost Reels is a fantastic addition to the genre that will keep you busy for quite some time.
We can only hope the powers-that-be come to their senses and make it cheaper, because in its current form, The Lost Reels is both polished and thrilling. On that note, players with the cash to burn will delight in the carnage.
The Lost Reels is a fun, if slightly watered-down, arcade-style romp. The bite-sized level chunks are a good fit for mobile gaming and the touch controls should serve as an example to other iOS shooters.
