Spandas Lui of GGG writes: Comparing something to a B-grade horror movie can be a polite way of saying, "This blows!" But when the term is applied to Spatterhouse, it seems like a glowing endorsement.
What is most appealing about Splatterhouse is it doesn't try to pass itself off as a horror game to be taken seriously (stand up Resident Evil). Instead, it is comfortably ensconced in B-grade cheese and it knows it. The crude dialogue, dodgy cut-scenes and illogical progress of the plot are reminiscent of a low-budget horror movie.
