Splatterhouse is a well designed game. The setting fits the story line well and the combat is more enjoyable as you progress further in the game. Some faulty sound during ingame cutscenes but dosen't ruin the game at all.
My favorite part is that the game dosen't take it's self too seriously yet still has that frighting horror movie element. A classic made well with the side scroll run and jump classic gaming experince at some parts making a good mix of between the brutal combat.
I also love how the levels are brought to life. Each level feels like your experiencing a horror storie, espcially the connection to HP Lovecraft. Which to macabre fan like me finds very satisfiying. Overall a very unique game and I give it a 10/10.

I know a lot of people are talking about how bad it is, and for some people that might be the case, but i for one, bought it on day one and do NOT regret it. I was ready for a brudal insanely gorey game and its what i got, so if thats what you want, a game full of blood and action with different weapons that brutaly chainsaw in half monster, or 2 by 4 w/ nails their heads off...Another great addition, is splatterkills, being able to do a series of buttons to rip a monster in half, or rip his head, or arms off is just entertaining!
All in all if you are looking for a fun late night game, with extreme gore, awesome weapons, and a story all in one, SPLATTERHOUSE is the way to go!
