  • Summary: Had the battle sequences not been so maddeningly frustrating and frequent, Evil Dead: Hail to the King would at least weigh in as a decent Resident Evil clone, but they work to make the game almost unplayable.

  1. For the true believer, it's all worthwhile when Ash cranks up his trusty chainsaw and lets loose with a hearty, "Yo, tree bitch. Let's go."
  2. The game is, at it's best, not fun; at it's worst, it is a frustrating example of why licensed games suck.
  3. 60
    It's a mystery (and a shame) why with solid survival horror games like "Nightmare Creatures" or the "Resident Evil" series out there as examples, a "can't-miss" movie license like Evil Dead couldn't have faired better.
  4. A waste of an excellent license and a great opportunity.
  5. 45
    It's an awful lot of story.
  6. Had the battle sequences not been so maddeningly frustrating and frequent, Evil Dead: Hail to the King would at least weigh in as a decent Resident Evil clone, but they work to make the game almost unplayable.
  7. This "Resident Evil" wanna-be falls flat on its undead face.
