Splatterhouse – the arcade game – wasn't actually that good even 22 years ago when it first hit Japan. So why a remake of the first game is being made at all confuses us – next they'll be telling us the 'classic' Altered Beast will be re-done (1. It's rubbish, 2. We know it's already been re-done, and the remake is rubbish too)."
