    Where every move you make comes back to haunt you

    Extreme Exorcism is a paranormal platformer where every move you make comes back to haunt you.

    Take on the role of Mae Barrons; an Extreme Exorcist whose unconventional supernatural skills are called upon when everything and everyone else has failed to rid a haunted house of its ghostly presence. Engage in non-stop ghost annihilation in 10 eerie areas of the haunted house each room presenting its own hellish hazard.

    Conventional methods wont cut it with these troublesome poltergeists so Mae comes armed with a deadly arsenal of ghost-busting weapons, from rocket launchers to razor sharp boomerangs.

    At the end of each round, a ghost appears and mimics your every move from the round before. So the longer you survive the more extreme the game becomes.

    With a devilish local multiplayer you can play co-op or deathmatch modes with up to 4 of your friends, and with 50 unique challenges even the most daring Extreme Exorcist will be put to the test.

    It’s a simple premise that’s executed perfectly.

    Extreme Exorcism will have a fairly broad appeal, given the simplicity of the mechanics. You'll likely need to explain to your non-gaming friends how it works, but even the most staunch luddites will be able to grasp what's going on.

    Let's make it short: Extreme Exorcism is the perfect filler between AAAs, especially when you play the Challenge mode.

    It needs multiplayer to truly work. It really, REALLY needs it. When played with friends it’s a magnificent ode to chaos, but alone... yeah, it’s pretty repetitive and dull.

    Taking everything into consideration, I'd have to say that while I like the novelty of the ghost enemies mimicking the player's actions, once that novelty wears off you begin to notice the cracks and things begin to feel repetitive. The challenge levels extend the game's life, but overall it's probably the kind of game that you'll play for a little bit and then not be particularly compelled to return to.

    Extreme Exorcism is a nifty little indie action/arena battler where you kill ghosts regarding around one main gimmick - there's not really AIExtreme Exorcism is a nifty little indie action/arena battler where you kill ghosts regarding around one main gimmick - there's not really AI as such, (aside from evil haunted chairs in the first rounds and in a few specific challenges) instead these ghosts just copy your actions 1:1 from the previous round, including all movements and attacks. Doesn't sound too difficult on the face of it, but it can get a little chaotic as the past incarnations of you start to build up.

    Essentially, the game is played in rapid-fire rounds which end when you kill your ghost from the previous round, marked with a crown. You can kill the other ghosts too, but it's typically a waste of time in the main game. That's essentially the gist of it - arena battlers like this tend to live or die based on the strengths or weaknesses of control fluidity and weapon variety, and Extreme Exorcism has an acceptable amount of both, I suppose.

    It also strikes the Single Player/Multiplayer balance pretty well - I'm fine with games that are either 100% one or the other like a committed party game or a story driven single player game. When you try to completely half-ass shoehorn a crappy multiplayer mode into an SP focused game (Red Dead Redemption) or the other way around (the weird Mario Party single player campaigns) that starts to annoy me.

    Extreme Exorcism avoids that - the campaign is acceptable whether you play it single player or co-op and there's competitive for the multiplayer side and challenge mode for the single player side to balance it all out. Kudos for that, but I've gotta dock at least a little bit for shafting the long distance crowd on any type of online capability.

    Certainly not anything to write home about, but it's a fun way to kill a few hours.
