Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Picking up from where Evil Dead 2 ended and after a great cut sequence in which all hell is unleashed on the local TV station, the wisecracking supermarket employee begins his quest to rid the town of Dearborn of the flesh-eating Deadites once and for all. This is classic hack-and-slash action. You run around various locations killing anything undead that gets in the way of your weapon. This is the fun part. Zombies come at you with regularity and most drop power-ups from ammo to health and manna for spell casting.

Ash has a "to do" list and this are your cue as to where to go next in the game. These missions can either be given to you by NPCs, such as the cops who stop you getting into the Kitten Club, to long-term goals such as getting into the TV station. The first problem is that this makes for a pretty linear experience. Secondly, the puzzles are obtuse. Don't assume that a locked door needs a key or you'll be running around for hours killing every zombie that jumps you in the hope that one of them will drop it. Ash can use spells and dynamite as well as keys to open doors, the trouble is you don't often know which is the right way and there are few hints in the game itself. Lastly, there's no map. This is rather a blow considering the sometimes confusing camera angles and similarity of the backdrops. But on the plus side the levels are relatively small and there are plenty of zombies to kill as you navigate your way round.

Graphically it lacks some of the pizzazz of Resident Evil, but the real reason to play is the scourge of the undead--Ash and luckily he's voiced by the man himself, Bruce Campbell. Fans of the series will enjoy the wry humour and zombie-eradicating goodness, but action aficionados might be left wanting more than the one-liners and samey gameplay. --Kristen Bowditch

Product Description

A Fistful of Boomstick mixes the comedy and fun of the campy horror-movie series with intense combat missions and a number of puzzle-solving sequences for the most complete Evil Dead game yet. Take on the role of Ash, the chain saw-armed hero, and fend off hordes of Zombies and Deadites with multiple weapons including the axe, rifle, shotgun and infamous chain saw.

Okay, so as an Evil Dead Videogame, we were never gonna be talking complicated but the simple linear gameplay and lack of innovation stopped this one getting 4 stars.
Its a simple 3rd person shooter as you, the hero Ash run about Dearborn town trying to send the Deadites back to hell with a variety of weaponry. And thats about it really.
Its been compared to Resident Evil but don't be fooled, here's the good and the bad:
Good-
Its fun initially to hit zombies with a spade and chainsaw them to bits.
The town is well rendered eg. streetlights, rain & lightning fx.
A spellbook to use as well as shotgun and spade that produces some really cinematic effects.
Bruce Campbell voices Ash with a huge collection of witty quips
Bad-
You run around houses and streets but you cannot REALLY explore like climb on things and open doors to look around.
Annoying linear design as you have to go here to get this and then go there and so on.
Chopping & shooting gets boring quickly and is not really varied.
The 'bosses' are easy to kill.
Way too short with only 5 different timezones to explore!!!
The puzzles are too easy as well!
Im a fan of the Evil Dead movies but in this age of PS2 gaming, you have to pull out all the stops to impress and this just doesn't. Probably for fans only, which is a very narrow way to market your game these days (and a shame because it could have been so much better than average!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Groovy! 26 Nov 2003
By Someone
I think that this game is fantastic or groovy if you will. This is vintage Evil Dead. You get the dry humour of Ash with all of the gore from the film. You play as Ash(obviously) armed with your chainsaw and trusty "boomstick" (shotgun for those of you who are not familiar with the film)you hack your way through an army of deadites to rid your hometown (Dearborn) of the evil which a TV presenter has unleashed. You play through 3 different timezones. Modern day, colonial times, the american civil war and post apocalypse. As you go through the game you can pick up different weapons, both melee and projectiles. You start with your shotgun and a shovel which you find. A little later you find your chainsaw and you're on your way. Once you get into the game you can find weapons such as:
flamethrower
gattling gun
sword
mini boomstick (handgun)
and so on and so forth.
The graphics for this game are pretty good. As of yet I have found no glitches on the game. The game is pretty much free roam but you are limited to where you can go/the routes you take. The controls are really easy to pick up and if you use the camera angles right can make the game even more fun. Another adition is that Bruce Campbell has returned to do the voice of Ash which is cool and will be appreciated by fans of the franchise.
I think that this game is a must for any Evil Dead fan. Its also a hell of a game for someone who has never heard of Evil Dead. So just go buy it. I mean you get to hack up unlimited amounts of zombies with a chainsaw. What more could you possibly want?

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good. ehhhh... Groovy 4 Oct 2003
This game is fun. Okay the story isn't that good but the game itselfe rocks! If you liked the movies you will love this game.
The story tells us about a city full of zombies and of course ASH.
Funny Gags, cool comments from Bruce Campell, a Chainsaw, the boomstick and zombies everywhere. You like action?? you like the game. I love it just like the movies!

5.0 out of 5 stars GROOVY! 1 July 2003
Before i get started lets just get this out the way now, ive only had the game for two days now but its classy, pure class i tell ya. Some of you may not think its worth 5 stars but lets be honest its got all the ingredients..... Ash, Deadites, Boomstick, other groovy weapons, Brucey baby voice overs, blood and a tastey 3D environment in which you can have plenty of fun slaughtering those zombies. The game isnt too challenging puzzle wise (bearing in mind ive not got that far yet!) and has a fair number of deadites for you to have a go at but not too many, yet there are waves of them every now and then.
It starts off with a cut scene, which usually would annoy me slighty as they tend to be a bit lengthy, yet i didnt mind this one it explains what the dickens is goin on and ties in with the films.
You have the classic weapon scenario, bookstick in one hand chainsaw in the other and you are given the oppotunity to cast some spells to your advantage against those undead punks. You can also get other stuff like spades to slap them round the
chops with to. Killin em is pretty fun, you can dismember, decapitate and spray blood all over the show, if this dont kill em they wiggle along the floor after you if you shoot thier legs off. Another little thing i liked, is that fat and chubby deadites take a few more shots of the boomstick or a few more jabs with the old chainsaw to kill. If you chop thier arms off they still head butt you to, its gems like that that make me happy
The graphics are pretty cool, Ash looks rather groovy and theres a variety of deadites to hack at(tho they do start to look a bit familiar after a while). However, i must admit the environment is slighty bland.
