Not your typical action game
If you are looking for a God of War rip off or a devil may cry kind of game play; move along, there is nothing to see here. SplatterHouse is a game that stands on its own, without ripping off other games. Stylized, almost comic book like graphics come to life in constantly changing and always bloody environments. The controls take a bit of getting used to but become second nature quickly. The heavy metal soundtrack chimes in during the fighting to make the game play that much better. If you remember the old side scroll arcade game, and you want something new and interesting, you will love this game. It sometimes gives you a taste of that old side scroll action with a new twist. This game is not very hard but it does have a few frustrating moments. I played it for 6 hours today and I am only taking a break to let my PS3 cool down a bit. One bad thing is, I think this will be a short game. I am already on chapter 8 and it feels like it will be over soon. All and all I recommend this for anybody that loved the old school game or loves action games. Its ultra violence is just a legendary as you would expect. I think at one point i ripped out some lungs.
Finally, the time has come...
This upcoming tuesday marks the day this longly anticipated game comes out, if you ever loved beat 'em ups or were old enough to remember this game, you owe it to yourself to own this game... This and Darksiders will make a great match together...
Holding my breath
God I hope this does not get pushed back again. Loads of Gore, buckets of blood, chainsaws severed limbs used as weapons and real time limb and wound regeneration with epic enemy's to battle after fighting your way through hordes of monsters. And all of it set to a hard metal soundtrack. I haven't looked forward to any game as much as this one scene GOW 3. I just hope it meets my expectations.
Goreful Good Time!
i bought this game expecting just a fun revamp of the older titles but i gotta say its just amazing!
now granted its not for the smaller kids,, there is cursing ALL the way through this game, hardcore gore and violence even mortal kombat would blush at (well other then that new mortal kombat which looks amazing)
tons of nudity (which to me is an added bonus!) dark comedy abounds,
honestly this game is like a fun horror movie, not everyone will enjoy it. its not final fantasy, you wont find any really epic sweeping stories or even tons of different settings like God of War, but for what it DOES do, it does great
the only thing i wish they had done is add more enemies then they launched with. there is only about 4 or so enemies total, they re-skin them different ways but there isnt any fun finishers/fatalities to them after you kill the 3rd or so monster. after that it becomes sorta boring to do the fatalities over and over to them. but that is one problem. god of war did that better, but Splatterhouse has the comedy, fun and gore vote hands down
What a blast!!!
Namco did a pretty darn good job with this! Been playing for a few hours and i am enjoying it! The slight comic book art style and great fighting gameplay is simply awesome! Tearing your victims apart, bashing and beating them down. It just has a very good feel to it. It really is in somewhat a league of its own. When youre done with story mode, it unlocks all three arcade Splatterhouse games! There is also a survival mode and of course you get to upgrade your character, along with all kinds of moves! Trying to collect all pieces of paper to form a different nudity shot in each chapter, is a great way to get people to wanna collect all the hidden pieces! What a great game, Splatterhouse fans must play this and beat em up adventure fans alike need to get yourself a copy. Still has a nice old school feel to it as well as new! The main story i believe is a 10 to 12 hour game, with around 20 chapters! The side scrolling parts definately add a nice touch to it as well, changes things up a bit. Well, back to the splatterfest!!!
Hardcore & Gore
THIS GAME ITS WELL WORTH IT DESPITE THE POOR REVIEWS !!!! Finally a good game comes out that has plenty of content and awesome replay value ! FUN FUN FUN hacking and splashing blood about the place while good tunes amp up the gameplay. Controls are flawless. The only downfall is the slight timely loading wait, but its not really all that bad. I Hope they produce more Splatterhouse games ! and/or come out with more add -on content. Cus this is a winner !!! and the possibilities of what a sequel could offer would be quite the something to look forward to furthermore the amount of awesomeness it would be to work on and be part of the team creating ! I'm glad they remade it and hope they keep em comin.
Nice little beat'em up
This game is pretty awesome. Its a great beat'em up and kept me playing. Though i do have some complaints. The platforming parts of the game i found kinda stiff. I also found myself beating one or two phases at a time as the senseless beating the stuffing out of monsters got repetitive. These things are kinda major but really didnt stop me from enjoying my time. I dont think ill ever forget the first time i cut a monster and "juice" spewed everywhere.
Fun to play with a great soundtrack
Its a great game to play and a pretty good story line. (the mask makes the story). The upgrades to your skills makes it interesting along with the different weapns you find. The heavey metal soundtrack is perfect for fighting zombies!!! The game is like a classic horror zombie movie thats come to life. If your into that then you'll love the game. I have seen some bad reviews for the game. I believe its because of the violence and language, not for the game itself. It is rated M after all.
blast from the past next gen style
First off the negative about this game the load times are bad and the game can be glitch have had it freeze up a couple times. The good the game play is like God of War but you get fist heavy light attacks and meat clevers, boards with nails and QTE kill moves which require quick inputso anyone that puts this game down must not like god of war if they do they are a hypocrite. The graphics are good they set the game mood real well but do not break any new ground at times they can be a bit bland. The sound is good but me personally I don't care for the music but the voice acting is as good as any game out there. A major plus is unlocking splatter house 12 and 3 the classic games. All in all a good game worth the money some how I lucked out getting it for 3 bucks from a going out of business sale but I would've paid 20. Buy it if you like GOW or Darksiders. Load times a glitches are small problems and over look able.
I have been looking at this game for quite some time I must admit it looks F^$#* cool! This one I will pick up for sure because I been looking for a good survival horror type game for a long time and this is the one, I know this is a remake of the original Splatterhouse but I have never played the original...plus all the metal soundtrack is a welcome addition since I'm a metal head myself. I have a good feeling I will enjoy the game as well as the soundtrack in fact I already am because you can hear some of the game soundtracks in the official Namco site lol!
