One of the bests games in the serie for me Sega need to release a continuation of this series I also enjoyed and may have a strong connection with others in the series mostly good humor of our Agent Washington haha.
loved this game on the Wii and love it even more on the ps3 with the ps move and in 3d and lots more new stuff. we now have 2 new wepons and 2 new levels and 2 new game modes . i played this at a friends house in 3D and was just wowed by it and this was my deciding factor on buying a 3D TV . its just insane having zombies rush you in 3d and the game does it amazingly well and makes great use of the 3d effect. this is also one of the best rail shooters ive ever played .i was just crazy addicted to this game for a month and when i get my 3d tv i will be playing this game abunch more again. the story and voice acting is fantastic and is very on par with robert rodriguises grind hosue movie Planet of Terror. sega has now upgraded this game to HD as well and it looks much better plus some of the bosses are abit more of a challange now . this is how you make a already great game even better . i can only hope they make House of the Dead game for the PS3 now.
Brilliant example of a sadly forgotten subgenre. Overkill is a Gun Game with a lot of entertainment to offer, full of personality and terribly fun. It's too easy and could have more content, but it's a great offer for fans of shooting at the screen.
This is easily one of the stronger Move titles, though that's not saying much with the peripheral's current line-up. As it is, Overkill is a foul, brutal, and loveably twisted game that's surprisingly varied, has a good amount of content, and, most importantly, is fun to play with a friend.
As a grindhouse-esque story House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut doesn't impress much. Neither does it as an on-rails shooter, or as a fun experience. However, with a friend this can remind you of gaming sessions of old at your local arcade, and that's at least something.
with the controller its just another game, but with the ps move (inside gun attachment, or riffle) its one of the most fun i ever had with a video game!!! only issue is the infinite continues, at least have check points? nope instead you get to continue where you last died indefinitely, thats the only issue with the game
One of the most famous arcade games gets an episode exclusive for consoles, would it become a reference as a console rail shooter ?
First graphically the game is a port from the wii version and therefore almost seems as a PS2 game, at least there's no glitch. As for the gameplay the game is best played with the PS Move (even if it is possible to play with a controller, eventually good for coop) with responsive controls, unfortunatelly there's nothing new in the world of rail shooters.
Content wise the story plays out as a classic grind movie, a genre with to few defenders in the video games world (in my opinion), it would have been better if the actors weren't that bad but at least there's some good punchlines along the way. The game will last approximately 6 hours which is very short and the "extended cut" is in fact only a mode that you'll unlock after finishing the game once allowing you to replay the SAME levels withs a few more rooms and therefore not very interesting, as every arcade game the replay value is based on the scoring but if you're ego doesn't need to be in the first place the game is very short.
In conclusion a fun trip but very short and with nothing outstanding (except maybe nice boss fights) make House of the Dead Overkill a fun co-op game to play but not advisable for solo players that are looking for a rich experience.
An easy game to drop into with great fun potential with a couple of players with the move addition. Unfortunately, numerous attempts with the sharpshooter in different positions had me requiring to re-calibrate incredibly frequently or just stop trying to aim and start just moving the cross hairs.
The mini-game addons are small and short, nothing that special there, but directors cut, weapon upgrades and collectibles give this some extra lifespan for a bit of a fun game. Both the old-fashioned (red-blue glasses) and modern 3d are interesting, however for non-3d screens I preferred the standard 2d.
This would be a 9/10 based on fun if it were reduced to ~Â£20 and they sorted out calibration issues, however I'm assuming that the developers will not do any updates to this, despite numerous other reviews stating the same calibration issue.
Was very dissapointed. Graphics looked about the same as the original house of the dead on the dreamcast. Half of the time you can't even tell if you shot them because there is no animation that shows if you hit the zombie or not. So bad its almost good.
