Good review. Actually, I was just about to review this one, but you said pretty much everything I was going to say. Overkill has everything going for it, but it's just so easy - even the director's cut. The only thing that saves it is the Official Hand Cannons, which must be the coolest peripheral ever. I think I might just write a review of them.

One line that confused me a bit was this one:
"Shoot, I don't believe the weapons weren't programmed to deflect bullets, as I've yet to witness it"


"fuck yeah oblivion" - Jihad

Thanks for the comments, Janus. I wanted to mention more, but it would have just been nitpicking. As for the sentence, that is a clusterfu... confusing. I actually meant to say:

"Shoot, I don't believe the weapons were programmed to deflect bullets at all, as I've yet to witness it."

I kinda wished you mentioned that House of the Dead was a light gun shooter instead of waiting until right at the end. I'm dumb like that. The only other issue I had on my first readthrough was that I was a bit surprised you sort of recommended it when the changes made were received quite negatively. I mean, I definitely see where you're coming from -- it does seem like a worse version of the game, and your points are clear even to someone who's never played a single House of the Dead game -- but there aren't many positive comments. Maybe I'm seeing it like this because I'm totally new to the series.

Anyway, I did enjoy reading the review. It didn't bore me, despite it being clearly targetted at House of the Dead players unlike myself, and I thought the light-hearted opening worked well.

Yeah, the negative comments does seem kind of odd when you're seeing it as a stand-alone action game. I was viewing it as kinda like the Die Hard 2 of the series... it doesn't stand up well to the others, but as a stand-alone action game, it's still nice.

Thanks for replying and commenting on the review!
