Description

Ash, the square-jawed, insult-spewing, shotgun-toting, chainsaw-armed hero from the cult classic Evil Dead trilogy is back. Picking up eight years after the last installment of the Evil Dead films, Ash is drawn back to the infamous cabin in the woods only to again face evil forces that have crossed over to our world. Our hero finds himself slicing and dicing carnivorous Kandarian demons, vicious deadites, and other unspeakable atrocities spawned by the notorious Book of the Dead. And in true Evil Dead fashion, Ash must once again attempt to save the world from an appalling and horrific end. Evil Dead: Hail to the King is a survival horror game with over-the-top bloodlust and signature Ash humor--all within the confines of the Evil Dead universe.

Trivia

Ending (Army of Darkness spoiler!)

The ending to the game is obviously a homage to the original ending of Army of Darkness, in which Ash ends up stranded and alone in a post-apocalyptic world. As this was considered too dark for domestic audiences, the American version of the film was given a happier, save-the-day-get-the-girl ending that the more hardcore of the film's fans found dissatisfying.

Extras

A trailer for the game comes on the DVD for Evil Dead 2.

Sounds

Much of the short "jump" music that plays when a monster pops out in front of you can also be heard in the PC game Nocturne by Terminal Reality.

Soundtrack

Like the game's soundtrack, but don't want to spend additional money on the soundtrack CD THQ is advertising? Don't worry, the game's entire soundtrack is available in the program folder in Evildead/Evildead/Data/ unencrypted in WAV format. Just listen to it in Winamp. This only applies to the PC version, however.
