  • Summary: Evil Dead: Regeneration takes over where the film Evil Dead 2 left off. You can play as Ash, who has been committed to an insane asylum where a mad scientist is doing experiments with the Necronomican. With the help of some firepower and your new sidekick, a 3-foot tall "deadite," you can battle the scientist's unholy creations and save civilization. Collapse

  1. While there's little challenge in terms of the gameplay, it's a fun romp, boomsticks and all.
  2. It's a great little game -- chock full of humor, gameplay twists, and top-notch voice work that's closer to what film fans love Bruce Campbell for: It's not grade A, but it makes up for it in personality.
  3. The action is faithful to the goofy fighting found in the Army of Darkness movie and the game is available for a value price. All this being said, there is an obvious lack of polish and depth, and it won't last more than a few days.
  4. Ash is a great character and this is one of the better $19.99 games out there but without Bruce being on board the way he needs to be, the game is sorely lacking that special something.

    The game's third-person combat is pretty much D.O.A.-target, shoot, repeat, etc.-but things pick up considerably once you acquire your chainsaw and boomstick (aka 12-gauge shotgun). And things pick up again after you partner up with a wise-cracking midget Deadite.
  6. The game progressed very quickly perhaps because I felt I was constantly button bashing or the mere fact that it was a simple game to play. It's a game you can do without unless you are a diehard fan of Evil Dead.
  7. The fact that the game is short, the graphics not up to par and the levels somewhat repetitive will likely keep this game out of the hands of mainstream gamers despite it's twenty dollar price.

    Still the same old Ash!
