I picked this game up yesterday having never played the original Wii version, but having always being a fan of the HOTD games at the arcade and light gun shooters in general. This game is great fun and does the genre well. The game plays great with the Playstation Move and Sharpshooter rifle. Tip: for those having trouble with drift on your Move remotes, go to the System menu on the PS3 XMB and choose Accessory settings. Choose the option for Motion Controller Calibration and DISABLE the magnetic sensor. This will eliminate any drift issues with the Move remote in any game. I've had zero issues with Socom 4, Killzone 3, Resistance 3, Time Crisis or Cabelas Big Game Hunter 2012 or Cabelas Dangerous Hunts 2011 since disabling the magnetic sensor. From what I've read, there is actually no PS3 games that utilize the magnetic sensor at this time so even games like Sports Champions or Virtua Tennis 4 play smoothly with the magnetic sensor disabled.

'house of the dead: overkill' has always been my favorite game for the wii, and when i read that a port was being made for ps3 with hd upscaling, i started to pine for october.

concept: the same as the original, however we now have two entirely new levels! it's like having a heaping load of awesome with two extra sides of awesome! and i have to admit, the trophies are kind of fun (but given the nature of the game, this shouldn't be surprising). it also seems to me that there are far more bonus items in each level, which is a welcome addition.

graphics: they have transferred well. they aren't in line with new releases for the ps3 (obviously), but they do look far better than they did for the wii release. i also noticed in slo-mofo-mode that when you do serious damage to a zombie they REALLY get graphic with the splat factor. i do not recall this being as...messy...in the previous edition.

sound: top notch and, of course, we have the beyond hilarious voice work from the original (which for me, was a huge part of why i loved the game). between the cutscenes and the dialogue between detective washington and agent g, there is never a dull moment (i read somewhere that this game has the record for the most use of the 'f' word out of any video game).

my one real beef (and why i removed one star) is for the functionality. i tried this first with my dualshock controller, and not only was it difficult to shoot accurately, but the button mapping was strange. to shoot, you press either X or R1. R1? it felt very akward and i wished i could have remapped it to R2, but no such luck. you can move your crosshairs with either analog stick which actually gets a little confusing, especially if you happen to move one by mistake.

Light-gun games have become almost extinct, but HOTD Overkill gets a new coat of paint and new content for the PS3 over what was offered on the Wii. The graphics are much improved and there are some new chapters added to the game. Each chapter is set up with B-Movie style intros and it really comes off great. The shooting is fast and fun and Playstation Move support is a great addition.

One thing that irks me that really isn't a problem with the game is the Playstation Move controller will lose proper calibration at times. This will make your aim off, usually to the left or right. You have to re-calibrate it to get it back on target. I don't get this and it should be fixed by now, because this has been a problem with the Move controller since it came out last year. Had/have same issues with Resident Evil 5 Gold, Dead Space Extraction and Time Crisis Razing Storm.

Not often is there a game that feels like the arcade. This one DOES! Its very fun to play with friends. DO NOT play with kids around. Every other few words is an F or S bomb. Just a heads up

"Are you going to tell me what the (bleeping) G stands for?" - Detective Washington
"Nope." - Agent G

It's been said 100 times over on reviews, but I can't get over how fun this game is to play. Take your typical grind-house movie, throw in a House of the Dead vibe, and some tunes that Quentin T. wished he could have used on Pulp Fiction (here and there anyway!) and you've got the makings of a laugh-out loud funny game.

I was wondering how far the TV-MA rating would be taken. Rest assured, SEGA leaves no room for doubt...the profanity in the game (rumor has it that it made Guinness for the most profane game ever), the violence, and the somewhat near "was that what I think I saw" Janet Jackson moment definitely does NOT make this a game for the family. It's fun for me, though, when I would like to unwind after a hard day at work and want to do something else besides play Super Mario Galaxy.

The banter between the straight-up well-tailored G and the foul-mouthed Detective Washington (who sounds like a dead-on Samuel L. Jackson impersonator) is great. G has his foul moments as well which makes it even funnier. The scene with the ice cream truck cracked me up beyond belief where G and Washington are debating music choices.

Another fun moment is when Agent G and Washington find themselves on a little kiddie amusement park ride that moves around like Disney's Snow White through a haunted house...Washington blurts out (after G admits that he's a little scared to be on the ride), "Are you holding my hand?!?" "Yes." "Let go of me (string of expletives)."

So how does the remastered version of this game compare to the original Wii version? It's well worth the ride in my opinion.
