  • Summary: Evil Dead Regeneration explores a "what if..." continuation from "Evil Dead 2," one of the most unhinged films from famed director Sam Raimi. Voiced by Bruce Campbell, players control Ash, the reluctant hero of the series, as they're thrown into a masquerade of evil events, equipped with the latest in prosthetic fashion. Evil Dead Regeneration follows Ash, the lone survivor of a camp discovering the Necronomicon - the wholly evil book of the dead. Thought to have murdered his companions, Ash is arrested, convicted of the crime, and sentenced to Sunny Meadows, an institute for the criminally insane, but not for long. Ash's peaceful stay is about to end - thanks to the perverted experiments of his very own psychiatrist, Dr. Reinhard. Hell-bent on using science to harness the Necronomicon's powers, the mad doctor unleashes the book's all-powerful Evil on the world - releasing a new slew of Deadites, monsters and spirits, twisting reality into a hellish strudel and leaving mankind with that not-so-fresh apocalyptic feeling.

  1. Fast, furious, funny, and a breeze to play through so it’s perfect for the weekend gamer.
  2. Evil Dead: Regeneration has a different feel from its predecessor and it’s a little on the short side, but Evil Dead fans should eat it up.
  3. A fun little game that should not be overlooked if one is looking for a cheap yet satisfying game.
  4. A huge improvement over the last two games. Of course, that isn't saying much. Actually, Regeneration is a lot of fun to play, but it's marred by a host of bugs and an ugly presentation.
  5. The biggest problem with Evil Dead: Regeneration isn't that it's not simple fun, but that it never rises above that in any way that Evil Dead fans might hope, or that comedy-horror genre fans might expect.
  6. Short but mostly sweet, this is unashamed B-list fare, offering cheap thrills to those who don't take killing too seriously. [Apr 2006, p.98]
  7. These characters deserve a bigger canvas on which to tell their tale.

    ( 8.5 ) Of course, its the best Evil Dead game EVER, because they actually had the people from the movie involved with the game.

    Boring at the start, but wind-up to the last four levels. If you will pass thru 4 levels, you will get it. There so many ways to destroy - Sam, 3 type of guns that really works and have different action on enemies, grappling hook!!!! and evil powers, plus COMBINE it all!!! And don't forget about humor and pretty easy bosses, exept last ome. I give it 9, because it's unique black humor thing with a huge shooting system. Graphics is good for ps2. Take away the humor and gunplay, it will be 2 0f 10. But it's not and this game is must buy for the guys and chicks who want real game with unique stuff, and not just another shooting thing. Expand

    Hey I just picked this up at Circuit City for about 8 bucks. It's a pretty great game for that price, enough to waste a week or so on, plus there's a fair amount of replay value... As you collect pages of the Necromonicon you are able to unlock some pretty cool behind the scenes stuff. The controls take somegetting used to, and the camera can be a bit of a pain, but you know what I worked around them and found myself enjoying the game nonetheless. The voice acting by Bruce and Ted is funny and the music sdtrk is spot-on. For 8 bucks you could do a lot worse. Pick it up! Expand

    The fighting is fun although at times can be repetitive. The variation in scenery and abilities from level to level keeps the game from bogging down. Witty banter between Ash and his budy is funny at times, but just like the action in the game, can get a little repetitive. Expand

    Of all of the Evil Dead games, this one captures the spirit of the movies the best. It was obviously made by true fans of the films. If you count yourself a fan, bump that score up to about an 8.5. Expand
