Want gore, girls and f-bombs? Play The House of the Dead: Overkill

GamesRadar - Everyone says the Wii didn’t get many great third-party games. Well, that's probably true. But it did get The House of the Dead: Overkill so, y'know, who cares? Years after its release, the game still sits near my TV in case I feel the need for another goregasm or two. (iPad, iPhone, The House Of The Dead: Overkill - The Lost Reels)

This game is awesome. Its intentionally cheesy and b rated and I if you played it you'd love it.

yeah like NukaCola said it's intentionally bad which makes it funny. It's great satire. It even has a cliche/stereotype black guy motherf***er!

Oh no, I'm all for things being intentionally bad. I was just speaking in general. XD
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   1003d ago
Haha oh right.
Gotcha ;)

Wan't high hits for your website because it's a slow news weekend? Add "Girls", "F-bombs", and "Gore" to your articles title! :/

This game was so cheesy and hilarious. Anyone that didn't play this game is missing out. Plus it's so cheap at this point.

This game was corny, the dialogue hammy, the plot ridiculous and there were more cusses than a night out in London.

And I loved every goddamned second of it.

Easiest comparison I can make in terms of tone is Blood Dragon. It's meant to be of the 'so-bad-it's-awesome&# 39; ilk and it pulls it off magnificently. I loathed the other House of the Dead games because they were as silly as the Resident Evil games but insisted on taking themselves entirely seriously. Overkill realised it was brain-dead and reveled in it. Ace game, would very much like to see an Overkill 2 at some point.
