  • 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.
