US Pastry Day

Feb2009 28

On the weekend, I picked up House of the Dead: Overkill, exclusive to the Wii and built from the ground up to take advantage of the Wii controls. And let's face it, shooting games rock on the Wii and suck on everything else. But, as the only shooting games available are Ghost Squad (which is too short) and House of the Dead 2 & 3 (even shorter), Overkill is a welcomed change.

The developers from Headstrong have done an amazing job with this game, splitting it up into 7 "movie" missions like Left 4 Dead did -- each movie based heavily around the b-grade, grindhouse genre. It's cliche to the max and I love it.

Full of swearing, violence and great gunplay -- 4 out of 5.
