pickassoreborn's The House of the Dead: Overkill (Wii) review


"House of the Dead: OVERKILL is currently the Guinness World Record holder for the most profane video game of all time, with the word "fuck" uttered over 189 times throughout the game."
Says it all really.
Plus the game has the worst reloading-your-gun speed ever. House of the Dead 2's reload was instant and felt delicious. This feels clumsy and more often than not, you feel like you're powerless to react to zombies which take advantage of your pedestrian reloading speed. There's a charm to the game based on the Grindhouse grit and grime, but that can't disguise that reload flaw. Doesn't feel like a HOTD game because of it. Shame.
