Splatterhouse Xbox 360

on 1/1/2012

A title that seemed one of the big dogs at E3 when it was announced but then flew right under the market. I completely forgot about this game until I heard about it being on sale and picked it up for a modest price, which was a bargain.The storyline is involving, and really draws you in. As you learn more about the estate and the people involved, you begin to see cut scenes from your past that slowly piece together why exactly you are in the situation you are in. Lots of collectibles and unlockables, so it gives you reason to replay the campaign. In addition to these, as you slaughter countless enemies, you rack up BLOOD points which you use to learn new skills and enhance your abilities. If a portion of the story is giving you an increasingly hard time (and trust me, there are sections that are extremely difficult) you can always grind a couple levels before and rank up your skill so the harder portion is easier to beat. (Have yet to do this myself but I know the option is available.) What shocked me most is how well the story is told. In addition to the survival horror elements the gameplay provides, the eerie atmosphere perpetuated by the environment keeps you on your toes, while the narration of the Terror Mask relaxes with you with temporary comedic relief. Its an experience in itself how the game constantly sways your mood through the proper use of comedy, horror, and drama that the story seamlessly blends. If you are looking for a complex and intricate experience, you are looking at the wrong title. If you want a couple months of fun and some good laughs, don't hesitate to pick this up, for the price its at now, its unbeatable. Did I mention you can also unlock the previous 3 splatterhouse games? Yeah, they're there too. NOT for children! Read More

I am enjoying this game thoroughly now days. There is a point in the first level where you get your arm ripped off, and proceed to beat enemies to death with it. That pretty much sets the pace for the game. That being said, I will not be turning to the game for deep, introspective musings about the state of the world. Unless that state involves monsters. this is a good game after all. Read More

Review At its best, Splatterhouse is a fun guilty pleasure for horror fans, at its worst, it doesn't work and can be offensive to some. The game feels too cheaply done at times, and there's no doubt that issues with the controls, camera, and animation really drag it down. Yet, for a cheese-filled, violent action fix, there's definitely something to be said for the unapologetically trashy, overdone gameplay.
