Perhaps the only criticism we can level at this game is by today's standards the main characters movements are a little sluggish meaning sometimes it's difficult to react as speedily as you would like to oncoming attacks. Still that is a minor gripe. This game is heartily recommended to anyone who likes a good beat em up, they don't come much better than this.
So it's just as well that Rick was dead – most gamers probably wouldn't have minded him staying that way. Except, of course, that Splatterhouse then couldn't have become a lasting franchise. This game was just the first in a series, as Rick's quest for revenge eventually continued into Splatterhouses 2 and 3, both games that improved on the basics established here in the original and both good candidates for the Virtual Console sometime down the road. And in today's climate of even more shocking survival horror, isn't the Splatterhouse franchise long overdue for a remake? If we can get Manhunt 2 on the Wii, then motion-controlled cleaver-wielding should be a perfect fit.
Splatterhouse fait partie de ces jeux dont l’ambiance unique reste gravée dans les mémoires. Pour 600 points Wii, le titre propose une expérience valant le coup d’être vécue même s'il est regrettable de devoir l’apprécier dans une version moins belle et censurée alors qu’il aurait été possible de proposer directement la version originale aux joueurs.
Splatterhouse purists (no doubt already furiously banging their fists against the keyboard in outrage at my lack of respect/knowledge/sexual prowess) are probably already aware that this TurboGrafx conversion contains several edits and changes from the more gruesome arcade original, but I'm warning you anyway.
