    THE HOUSE OF THE DEAD
    OVERKILL
    EXTENDED CUT

    Picked this up in GAME today for £12.98 price cut from £32.99

    I knew it wasnít going to be Uncharted level, and fully expected a Sega arcade coin-op type conversion effort, and thatís what it appears to be, not that Iíve played the arcade game. Its mindless fun, and feels kind of different.

    I checked out its maker Headstrong Games online, and it turns out to be Kuju. I never normally touch Kuju games. TO be fair, THE HOUSE OF THE DEAD has something going for it. I love the Kill Bill old style FX. The music great too. Iím viewing the graphics in a retro sort of way, as thatís how they look. The game even comes with 2x pairs of red and blue 3D glasses!

    I enjoyed this, it's good fun, and Move works okay. The extra levels on PS3 are garbage, though. They used a different writer, and he's absolutely fucking terrible.

    The 3D effect with the red/blue glasses is poor tbh. This game however gets better with subsequent play throughs as you upgrade your weapons.

    I've got this for the wii - is it worth me getting it again on the extended cut? (I love it on the wii)

    U MAD?

    It's really good with the Sharpshooter, had a go with Move on its own and I wouldn't want to play it like that.

    House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut (PS3)
    Picked this up yesterday from cex for only £2.50, like new condition.

    Played through the 1st section, defeating the cripple boss. Love all the old film effects, and the audio. The PS2/PS3 gfx suit the game well. Great humor
    'you killed my brother..'
    'you're his sister?' - the camera focusing not on her face, but her tits.

    Good arcade fun! makes a real change.

    The pole-dancer intro sets the lo-tone perfectly :)

    + cut scenes..
