Overall, ‘The House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut’ does a wonderful job paying homage to the original House of the Dead game I played in arcades in the mid-1990′s. The games grindhouse-like style works well and the PS Move’s shooting mechanics feel natural and very responsive. While Overkill may lack the depth and polish of many other shooters on the PS3, it makes up for this in other areas. If you are looking for some cheap Mature rated thrills over a weekend while the women are out of the house, then ‘The House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut’ is most likely a game for you.

Teniendo en cuenta que la oferta para Move no es demasiado extensa, y los pocos juegos de pistolas que hay hoy en día, no se puede más que recomendar Overkill tanto para los usuarios del periférico como para aquellos que buscan la vieja dinámica de recargar y disparar a la pantalla. Move no es obligatorio pero sí imprescindible para poder disfrutar del juego, y lo cierto es que aporta lo bastante como para lamentar que no haya más intentos de utilizar el periférico para esta clase de juegos. Lo que no se puede recomendar por otro lado es comprar Extended Cut si ya se disfrutó del original en Wii, los cambios no son tan sustanciales como para justificar desde estas páginas una segunda compra. A pesar de esa circunstancia y del exagerado retraso entre ambas versiones, estamos ante un título que hará las delicias de los amantes de esta clase de juego, especialmente si disfrutan de las referencias y excesos que dan tanta personalidad a este título. Un estilo único.

Overkill is a game best played co-op with a fellow friend on the couch. If you have 2 PlayStation Move controllers and a friend who enjoys light-gun games, go ahead and give this game a shot. Overkill absolutely nails the presentation of a 1970’s Grindhouse film, and it’s a ton of fun to play. It may not be the best light-gun game ever, and it may not be the best House of the Dead ever, but Overkill stands out as one of the top-tier light-gun shooters and may be the best one to come out in the last 5 years. This isn’t the longest game ever, and it suffers from a few animation issues, but overall House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut is a fun, albeit short experience.

It's guilty-pleasure gaming that doesn't evolve the genre, but it's hard to deny the appeal of introducing a pole-dancing zombie stripper to a face full of buckshot.

Snappy support for the PlayStation Move makes it easier to appreciate the loving grindhouse aesthetics stitched over this otherwise familiar light-gun shooter.

If you want to play this game, spend the money on a Wii instead of a Move. If you only have a PS3, already own a Move, and must experience the horror: rent and bring a lot of beer.

Overkill is disappointing. As a big fan of House of the Dead, it hurts to see the series take such an ugly turn.
