Splatterhouse Review

Gaming remakes have been somewhat of a mixed bag recently. Capcom's attempt at rebooting Bionic

Splatterhouse E3 2010 Preview

QUICK TAKE: With a ridiculous amount of violence and blood joined by some puzzle solving, this classic franchise is coming back with a vengeance. It's definitely not for the faint of heart, but if you're looking for heavy action that doesn't take itself too seriously then Splatterhouse is for you.

A remake of the 1988 classic arcade game, Splatterhouse was one of the most prominent titles at Namco's E3 2010 booth. Longtime gamers will be drawn by the old brand, wondering what a reimagined and modern Splatterhouse is like. Newcomers will be drawn by the crazy action, slick graphics, and gratuitous amount of blood. The gameplay shown at E3 was fast, fun, and stylish. Read more »
