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!
So I'm sending back a PS3 copy of the game and had a great time with it, sure the storyline wasn't the most intense thing ever, but can anyone answer this question, is the mask a reflection of Rick or is it just the mask? Subtle hints and odd character development are dropped throughout the game if one is so inclined to pay fing attention. IE Jenny asks what he is really like behind the mask. Don't listen to the haters who have played to much fallout (not that I haven't) the world isn't flavored with just one form of ice-cream splaughterhouse is sweet, if not for the button mashing and over the top gore and dismembering yeah dismembering the frog thing is disturbing, then for the mask cracking jokes and making fun of everything. Sure the camera was week, the critters were normalish, and the mechanics were clunckey, but so you have to ask yourself this
Did I just have fun
If it's yes then you just found a great game maybe not to buy but at least give an over sized hulking demon possessed white boy a chance will ya?
