  1. A fun little game that should not be overlooked if one is looking for a cheap yet satisfying game.
  2. It's not fancy and it's not amazingly deep, but it does let you chop up an awful lot of zombies. It's entertaining for what it is.
  3. Fast, furious, funny, and a breeze to play through so it’s perfect for the weekend gamer.

    One of this year's biggest and most pleasant surprises. [Oct 2005, p.64]

    Regeneration dumps the mass deadite attacks of "Fistful of Boomstick" in favor of a fairly balanced action-puzzle approach, nicly snapy control, and decent level designs. [Nov 2005, p.94]
  6. 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.
  7. The black humor, bad jokes and buckets of blood flying at a rapid fire pace in interactive form will keep fans of the series coming back for more while we’re waiting for Hollywood to get its act together.

    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 - 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.

    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, 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! Full Review »

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