If you’re like me, you’ll agree the announcement of House of the Dead: Overkill Extended Cut was a bittersweet experience. On one hand, I was throwing emotional confetti all around my living room – House of the Dead, finally in HD! On the other hand though, I was bummed to see yet another gussied-up port of a pre-existing title. Where’s my HOTD4?
I guess it’s time to quit my complaining, as Sega has promised 60% more material in this PS3 rerelease. Expect new stages, new scenarios, new enemies, new weapons, new unlockables, new audio tracks, new zombie modeling, improved motion capture physics, and new levels of difficulty to further spice up the experience. There’s even a brand new cutscene mini game that allows you to blast censor bars away from all the naughty words seen onscreen… And trust me, there are going to be a LOT of naughty words.
It may not be House of the Dead 4, but it’s easily the next best thing.
