The Influence Factor of Splatterhouse

Kube00 Says: I was poking through Game Informer when I noticed they had a piece about a new 3D looking Splatterhouse game coming to the PS3/360 this summer. I thought this was article worthy. For those of you who don't know, Splatterhouse was an arcade action-adventure game made by Namco in the late 80's. This so-called new Splatterhouse is a remake of the original 1980's arcade version.

The original was later ported to the PC and TurboGrafx-16 systems; who even owned a TurboGrafx-16? Remakes of Splatterhouse 1 for TurboGrafx-16 and 2 for Sega Genesis have come to the Wii's Virtual Console for a very reasonable amount of Goozex points. A third Splatterhouse was also developed in 1993 and debuted on the Sega Genesis.

I am really looking forward to seeing how Splatterhouse has changed from the genesis version.

Does anybody remember playing the classic versions of this game. It stole many an hour of my childhood.

Any hopes for this new version? seeing how you're an old player!

I think it has potential to be good, as long as the game stays with the gritty vibe and over the top violence. I am not an advocate of violence by any means, but it may end up being the key to this succeeding.
