    This game is only for Evil Dead biggest fans, fanboys and diehards. Meanwhile it's total crap for everyone else including me. Had some fun for 5 minutes before quiting.

    This game is for evil dead diehards and yes its not the easyest game ever but thats the great thing and if your a true fan of the evil dead you would jump into this game with both feet yelling "Hail to the KING" and thats just what i did.

    I only have one problem with this game: the endless assault of respawning deadites. This game stays true to the trilogy and is a must for any fan. Even though the respawning enemies are anoying, they are part of the Evil Dead universe. You never get much of a break between fights, but neither did Ash in the movie.

    Don't let the other reviews fool you! This game rocks, especially for the fans of the Evil Dead movies. I suspect the reason that some might hate this game is because it's too hard for them. Boo Hoo! A real game that presents a real challenge for a change.

  1. If you haven't seen the game, prepare to witness some of the weakest graphics this side of the millenium. The 3D characters are nothing but big blocks of pixel.
  2. Only "Evil Dead" diehards need apply. If you're looking for "Resident Evil," buy the original. [July 2001, p.64]

    The suckage wasn't just saved for the visual and auditory portion of Hail to the King, though...no, no. Gameplay is equally as tedious.
