This game looks good, but there are better looking games on the Wii. Some character models are rougher looking than others & some textures feel really low res. There are times where the dialogue & mouth movements on characters aren't synched up very well, but that's really minor. There are some frame rate issues at times, but overall the game looks great & none of the issues I mentioned get in the way of me enjoying this game. Read More

Review The classic SEGA series "House of the Dead" returns on the Nintendo Wii which throws a whole new spin to the franchise and gameplay. The game pays homage to the exploitation movies of the 70's and more specifically, Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror with its over the top characters, scratchy film-like effects and excessive violence...The House of the Dead: Overkill is truly a revolutionary game for this console. Rated "XXX", it's actually MA15+, the game has a real retro feel to it from the perfect soundtrack, enjoyable gameplay and ironically, the most swearing I have ever heard on a SEGA game...Depending on which version of the game you purchase, either one with the handgun or without, the game comes with a great retro-inspired comic of the characters involved in the game that just proves how much gaming love has gone into creating this addictive and highly entertaining title...Although it does offer some "new" gaming features such as the combo system or using the environment to your advantage, the different modes of "violence" that begin from extreme violence and ends with goregasm, just makes this title that so much better. This can be achieved by ensuring that every shot you fire hits your intended target... sounds easier than it is...At it's core, Overkill features an excessive amount of violence and strong language that would make Quentin Tarantino proud, however the storyline contains a healthy dose of humour which although does not take itself seriously at all, increases the ambience of the game...In conclusion, SEGA have a true winner on their hands that is probably the most fun I've had on the Wii in quite some time. The game is cliched, entertaining and best of all a blast to play which has truly moved this franchise to the next level. A tacky and enjoyable story, Overkill is a must have for all gamers, provided they are over 15 as it is quite violent at times...Needless to say, brilliant!

Quotes
Game Informer Tarantino fans shouldn't miss this clever, curse-heavy shooter.
Gameplayer Unlike Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles, Overkill doesn't take itself remotely seriously...This is good, dirty fun.
GameShark ...this game is exactly what Wii owners need. It's fun, funny, violent and tuned right in to the sensibilities of the hardcore.
WonderwallWeb The blaster to own on the Wii, utter grindhouse perfection.
Worth Playing Not only is Overkill fun to play, but it's also obvious that the developers had fun making it.
