An Amusing, Fun way to Kill 2 or 3 Hours of Spare Time!!!
on 21 November 2015
House of the Dead:Overkill is the latest incarnation of the famous first person, Zombie Horror, rail shooting game series, released in 2011 on PS3. It acts as a prequel to the original House of The Dead games. The game plot involves AMC Special G being sent on his debut assignment to investigate disappearances and a local crime boss in a Louisiana Town. The town is filled with "Mutants" caused by a leakage from a shutdown bunker used by the military for bio weapons. In the First episode Agent G teams up with Police Detective Washington, out to avenge his fathers murder masterminded by the Crime boss Papa Caesar.They storm Caesar's Mansion, but find that he has fled and discover a disabled scientist, whom Caesar used, called Jasper Guns, who injects himself with an unknown substance. He becomes the first Mutated boss and when you defeat him you team up with his Sister and a whore whom Jasper was sweet on. That's the set up for the game as they pursue Caesar over several levels whilst being attacked by the "Mutants" and and several bosses. It has a fun 70's grindhouse style, lots of over the top gore and swearing with funny characters. I liked the gore and overdone swearing, I never have a problem with this sort of thing I love it. I would say this is a amusing and quite fun way to kill a 2 or 3 hours of spare time. It's no masterpiece but what would you expect from a House of The Dead title. For me it's just a decent 3 out of 5 game, I would recommend if you can get it cheap.
