The first level prepares you for the challenges ahead while previewing the powers you will eventually be able to use to obliterate the forces of evil. The mask has a more Willem Dafoe's green goblin personality and assist you in rescuing your helpless girlfriend. A few classic enemies return and new ones await in Dr West's mansion.
Overall the game is fun but a lot of the enemy characters are used over and over again, so half way through the game you will have seen all the monsters and demons you will demolish along the way. Hidden pictures of Jennifer are scattered along the way and once revealed add a bit of an incentive to find them all (especially if you are trophy hunting).
In addition to the main game, there are challenging bonus stages that challenge you while not been overly frustrating and during the main game you can unlock all three original Splatterhouse games, so in effect you get four games in one. A great value to any Ps3 collection.
Visually as i said this game does not compare to GOW or Dante's Inferno. It looks and plays like Afro Samurai except for TONS of blood, Humor and endless ways to kill your enemies.
Gameplay can be a bit hard to figure out. You can't really stand up and mash buttons til everyone on the screen is dead (not until you unlock a bunch of skills first atleast). You have to use the block/roll button for defense if you get surrounded or if you unlocked certain skills you can bulldoze your way through it or just grab the nearest enemy and swing them 360 til you have enough room.
One cool aspect of the game is the healing feature that uses spilt blood that you have accumulated by killing enemies to heal yourself. Which is incredibly useful if your getting your ass kicked and your surrounded by a ton of enemies, you just throw out spikes that literally suck the blood out of the nearby enemies completely refilling your health.
Fun factor all depends on how much gore you can stand.Read more ›
In the absence of a review from any of the major critic websites--due in part to, I guess the Thanksgiving holiday and people actually taking a break from their jobs to enjoy themselves and relax, everyone needs to--I thought I'd put up a quick review to get things going.
This review is based on a 30% completion rate, so I still have more to go, but after probably close to 10 hours, I think I'm safe as to sharing an opinion as to what it's all about.
Yes, it's worth full price. Definitely. I was very skeptical at first, I though it would be like Golden Axe, playing off of a strong name, but being one of the worst ever games to play. Not at all! They took the title and improved upon it. If you were around to play the original games from Genesis and the arcade version, never saw that one in an arcade myself, but I remember seeing the Genesis version and wanting to buy it, but I had my Nintendo, this game is all of that gory fun x10. Be ready to see blood splatter. The game is fun in that it knows it's gross, and at one point, **one line spoiler alert** the actor for the mask even says, "That right there is why we got a f#$@in' "M" rating." Funniest line so far breaking the 4th wall.
There is no repetition in this game. There are a variety of evil demons to kill, and then there are similar ones, but they have different colorings and slightly different move set, just enough to keep things fresh throughout the whole game.
The most challenging part for me so far was Stage 3.Read more ›
But first, are the criticisms legitimate? Some of them are. The load times are long, and every time you die you have to sit through them. That is annoying unfortunately, but here's the thing. If you're good at the game and don't die, you don't see a load screen until the next level. That's why I highly recommend playing the game on the easiest setting before tackling anything harder. You need to get used to the combat system and its subtle nuances. The combat system is great. There are no uselessly complex combos to memorize here, in fact there really aren't any combos. You have a light attack and a heavy attack, and you just pound the weaker enemies into dust. The bigger enemies require judicious of your necro powers. There's an awesome level up system that uses blood as currency. It's very well done and is very satisfying to power-up your character and unlock new abilities.
The other gripe would be the platforming. Like all platforming, it requires trial and error, so it's easy to die on your first playthrough. This problem is compounded by the long load screen you have to sit through after every death. However, trial and error is part of EVERY platformer, so dying in the platforming segments isn't the problem as most professional reviewers claim it is. It's just the load times that's the problem.Read more ›
