House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut Review | Cheat CC

's been over two years ago since Overkill managed to surprise many of us by taking the longstanding House of the Dead series and giving it a fresh coat of paint. I can't tell you how many hundreds upon hundreds of quarters I sank into those House of the Dead arcade cabinets with some friends back when that was still something that kids actually did. This has never been a stunning series in any regard; it's never looked great, the story's always been deliciously cheesy, no one can remember a single character from the entire series, and the gunplay has always been limited to on-rails shooting. Then came Overkill, a game that, while still on-rails, managed to breathe new life into an aging franchise.

The story is too old to be commented.
