The House of the Dead Overkill Extended Cut Review (Playstation 3)

The House of the Dead: OVERKILL charges you with mowing down waves of infected, blood-thirsty zombies in a last-ditch effort to survive and uncover the horrific truth behind the origins of the House of the Dead. Survival horror as its never been seen before, The House of the Dead: OVERKILL is a pulp-style take on the best selling, classic SEGA light-gun shooter series.
Before the game even started I was laughing at the sort of cheesy 70’s sexploitation B-movie that is House of the Dead Overkill presentation. In the extended cut they have updated the 2009 shooter with 3D visuals and Playstation Move support. On top of that they have also thrown in two new levels (for a total of nine), a new weapon - the crossbow, a new mutant - the baby and now, all in HD. On top of that there are also online leaderboards along with collectibles and Playstation trophies.
Everything that the House of the Dead always was is still here. The on-rails light gun shooting which had the game trucking you around from place to place automatically. With a game series that has been so much the same for so long there is little to be said about it.
