Do not buy this game. Do not rent this game. You shouldn't even waste your time reading this review. The game control is worse than bad. Aiming is impossible. The dialog is worse.
Normally I will give a game at least 20 minutes. Not this one, however. Half way through the first scene I gave up and placed the game back in the mail. Considering there is a two week turnaround on games this is a big decision. I will usually give even mediocre games a few days but not this one.
The only reason I gave this game a one is because I could not figure out how to give it a negative score.
Once I stopped fighting the fact that Overkill is a rail game, it became a lot of fun. Bloody, fast paced, short, and full of really bad jokes, Overkill was a great way to spend a Saturday night. Beer and a friend to play it with are optional but strongly suggested.
