I was at GameStop picking up Mass Effect 2, when I saw this for very cheap. I had a bunch of credit left over and decided why not. I had heard all the bad press and reviews about this game. I on the other hand, like to play something before I make judgement. After playing through and getting the platinum, I can say that it was not what I expected. It surprised me how so many could bash such a good game. And to all those people on here that tore it apart you obviously haven't played some of the games I have. (18 Platinums and counting, including Fallout 3 and Demon Souls!) There is an ocean of games out there that are worse than this. First the negative, like so many others have said, the gameplay does get stale and repetitive after a while. But I felt driven due to the upgrade system and in the end it's a beat-em' up. What do you expect? The camera angles can get annoying too but it only truly bothered me fiercely twice. Now the positive, the soundtrack, gore, and humor is amazingly wicked. The terror mask talking to Rick is some of the funniest lines I've ever heard in a game. I have a twisted sense of humor and I fell in love with the over-the-topness of it all. The fighting has countless combos to learn and master. Not to mention, you can unlock the 3 previous Splatterhouses of yore. I wouldn't recommend it to everyone but if you are a fan of dark humor, metal, nudity, gruesome kills, and gallons of blood, then this game is for you.
