8.0 House of the Dead: Overkill Review

If you're a Wii owner fast growing weary of the glut of casual and cutesy games, do the decent thing and buy this. If you're even willing to go the extra mile, why not treat yourself to a pair of HotD Hand Cannon Wiimote holders while you're at it? A hulking great slab of gun-shaped white plastic that makes you feel like Dirty Harry beats playing with a standard remote any day. Big Ben's Hand Cannon add-on made especially for HotD may be a little heavy, but it's by far the most meaty and downright satisfying gun peripheral you can buy for the Wii and will have you striking your most macho pose in front of the telly.

It's a little rough around the edges in places, but Overkill has a barefaced charm and mischievous sense of fun that makes it impossible not to love. It's uncomplicated, old school entertainment. Just make sure you leave your sense of decency at the door when you enter this House of the Dead.
