Shoot-’em-up fans who like plenty of splatter should feel right at home with the crude,

rude and very bloody world of House of the Dead: Overkill, with its “goregasm” and

“psychotic” states of play. Inspired by B-movies, Overkill is packed with pop-culture

references and potty-mouthed characters, from blaxploitation cops to mutant

zombies.Action is split into a series of episodes, each with a distinctively retro

cinematic feel and tsunamis of blood, guts and brains. Subtle it’s not, but Overkill

is over-the-top fun for over-18s.
