After getting a couple years of catch-up light gun games from SEGA, we're finally getting to the good stuff. The House of the Dead: Overkill blends some great gameplay with an impressive style, some great humor, and enough violence and vulgarity to confuse the hell out of soccer moms looking for a new Sims game or Petz title.
I wouldn't put the overall production value or difficulty up there with WoW's offerings just yet, but for a relaunch of the series on Wii, Overkill is off to a very nice start. A few technical hitches can be found, and it's obvious that the team had its hands full trying to get this one out the door with as much as possible, but even more polish and refinement in the future could do wonders for the series on Wii.
Buy this awesome addition to Wii's hardcore library en mass, so we can all get another dose of Dead on Wii ASAP.
