Review: Reanimated

Let's start with the blood. There's lots of it. So much in fact that it's sometimes hard to see what you're supposed to be shooting at next. And the swearing? Worse. It makes a Roy Chubby Brown boxset seem fit for prime time Saturday viewing. But we've got no problems with all that - this is man gaming at its best. On Wii too.

One for rental certainly.

Well done Headstrong for not making a s**t game. But more importantly in the scheme of things, well done SEGA for using some common sense & realising the Wii can be about more than casual shovelware crap.

Not happy about the glitches considering the Wii is not exactly state of the art technology but I will be getting this game come Friday, I am a big fan of House of the Dead and this will be the first new one that has come out in years! :D

@ jubbgi01

Yeah, meant the band. There's a great Black Sunshine-type narration in there.

Just found it on the Matt when i went home for lunch.
f**king brilliant. definately the best on rails shooter i've played in years and more than worthy of the crown of best HOTD game.

best one liners ever.
"I'm going to amputate your f**king head"

awesome soundtrack. Just hella fun.

Put it this way, i was quite late back to work.

Yeah the soundtrack is balls out awesome! Just after he says that line doesn't he say "I guess that makes me a motherf*cking doctor" or something? Pure classic stuff!

Yeah. Classic. Love the fight they have when they finish off the first boss too. haven't laughed so hard at a game in ages.

I think the only thing that could make this game any more sweeter would be online play. Hope it gets a sequel it damn well deserves it.
