Just like the classic arcade game and TurboGrafx-16 original, Splatterhouse places you in the role of Rick Taylor, a student who just wanted to propose to his girlfriend Jennifer at the Eclipse Festival when she gets kidnapped by Dr. West, a psychopath doctor of Necrobiology who is obsessed with bringing back his deceased wife by taking advantage of the impending solar eclipse and the powers of the Corrupted.Read more ›
-- The checkpoints can be useless. Some really do not make sense and are badly placed.
-- I hate checkpoints that force you to watch an entire cutscene again. Too many of those.
-- When you die it can take ages to reload the checkpoint. Some sequences between checkpoints are mere seconds, but it takes almost 20~40 seconds at times to reload the checkpoint when you start. Infuriating at times.
-- Controls can be clunky at times especially when faced with hordes of enemies. The execution is not as smooth as those in God of War et al.
-- Nice boss battles.
-- Good story and keeps you interested.
-- Blood, guts, and death. Need I say more.
-- Great levelling up system by spending "blood" on upgrading your skills.
Splatterhouse is vile, disgusting and rude. Do not expect less. It carries mega tonnes of sexual metaphors and images that look like private parts. Photos of the protagonist's girlfriends showing boobies are all over the place. If this kind of thing upsets you, stay away. I kind of enjoy this adolescent marketing and focus on the blood, and found it nice alternative to my collection. One tip: the game could get repetitive for some, so rather play it on and off a little, and don't go for finishing it in one go as this could get boring.
`Splatterhouse' is a third person action game that requires as much button mashing as it does skill. It is gory to the extreme as you can use a variety of weapons to bludgeon/slice/pulp your enemies to death, including your own arm at times. The dark mask of the game feeds off blood so to gain upgrades you must kill the enemies in the most barbaric way you can imagine. One method is to trigger a special quick time event called a Splatterkill that sees the action zoom in and the punishment becomes more personal. If the idea of all this blood and guts appeals to you, then the game will amuse for a while. However, the bland level design and repetitive gameplay means that even the hungriest of gore hounds will find the final third of the game tedious.
There are moments in the game that are fun; the side scrolling action sections are a nice nod to the original, but even these become boring. Perhaps Namco should have spent a little more time investing in more diverse level design and less on gory animations and illustrations of scantily clad women. `Splatterhouse' was a game that I managed to finish, but just.

It's a great reboot that should not be ignored because of bad reviews plus the original trilogy in the disc is well and truly worth the purchase alone.Published on 11 May 2015 by Brian Kennedy
