I originaly bought HOTD overkill on the wii and found it to be my favourite game on that console. So when i learnt that it was being transfered to Ps3 with extra levels and in 3d, this game for me was a must.
What is a shame is that HOTD Overkill was released on the sameday as Battlefield 3 (obviously HOTD
:Overkill has been overlooked) Though i did buy both games on the their release, i found myself playing HOTD Overkill over the weekend while Battlefield 3 still had its packaging on.
What makes HOTD Overkill brilliant is that it has an grindhouse feel to it. Its very violent, 'F' word and 'Mother F'er words are used maybe a thousand times. I would not recommend this game if you are easily offended....im not kidding at times it can be quite below-the-belt. However if you are not easily offended and you love blowing Mutants (Zombies) heads off you will love this game. The 3D aspect is o.k the 3d only works when you are against a boss and they reach out to you, or if a zombie is throwing knives at you, thats when you really notice it.
I can not recommend this game any higher, to be honest it is probaly ONE of my favourite games. It is easily the best playstation move game out their currently. If you have played the wii game and loved it the only difference is that it has 2 extra levels (a Strip Club and a slaughter house), revaamped graphics, A couple of new guns and the 3D aspect.
Thanks for reading!
P.S this is the only game my girlfriend will play with me and not compplain....so thats an added bonus! And for GODSAKE SEGA Please release a sequel....im sick of waiting!
What you must take into account is that the game has made a parody of itself and therefore not to take it at all seriously. They have opted for a Grindhouse feel to the game, Rodriguez or Tarantino style, and this adds to the fun.
I read the one star review of this game just before my review and it frustrated me, the reviewer didn't even seem to give the game a chance. As far as the swearing goes, it's Grindhouse, it's fun and if it really bothers you, after the first completion of the game you can turn on the Shoot The S*** mode where the subtitles come up underneath the cut scenes and you can shoot the words before they're even said, censoring them for you delicate little ears. Moreover, they said you couldn't skip cutscenes? This isn't true at all, if anything I'd sometimes press X and annoyingly miss the cutscene. This is also a way you can prevent a lot of the swearing.
Finally, the reviewer said the game was too easy because you have unlimited lifelines, admittedly this is true, but only on the first time playing through, after this you unlock all sorts of challenges as well as Director's Cut mode (the whole game is like a film/game combo) where you only get 3 lives. There is also Classic Mode where you again only get 3 lives and if you are to get some of the challenges you can barely get hit, let alone die at all. The Trophies also demand a similarly high level of skill.Read more ›
As such, House of the Dead Overkill is the most fun I've had with PS Move. Graphically it's not fantastic, but this is to be expected from a Wii port. The dialogue is funny and has some actual laugh out loud moments early on. It's gory and sleazy as hell, with the grainy flicker overlay reminiscent of B-move grindhouse flicks of the the 70s. Think Planet Terror but a video game.
I can't comment on stereoscopic 3D as I don't have a 3D tv, but the addition of anaglyphic 3D and glasses is a nice touch. I wouldn't play the entire game through with them on - you naturally lose some detail and colour - but its easy to switch on just for one or two chapters.
I recommend it - can play it for hours but it's also an accessible game that you can pick up your shooter and have fun with for 20-30 minutes, playing one chapter at a time. Especially at £15 this game is worth buying (not sure the amount of content would warrant a full price purchase at £40).
