First things first. This game is motherf**king amazing. From start to finish everything about The House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut is fabulously entertaining. This is the fifth game in the House of the Dead series which began life in 1997, and is actually a prequel to the original arcade light gun game. The House Of The Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut is an on-rails shoot 'em up and wears its heritage very much on its sleeve. This is the definition of arcade gaming.
