The House of the Dead: Overkill - Summary

Survival horror as its never been seen before. The House of the Dead: OVERKILL is a pulp-style take on the classic SEGA® light-gun shooter series. Back when the famous Agent G was fresh out of the academy, he teamed up with hard-boiled bad-ass Agent Washington to investigate stories of mysterious disappearances in small-town Louisiana. Little did they know what blood-soaked mutant horror awaited them in the streets and swamps of Bayou City.

  • Pulp funk horror
    Zombie cool at its finest as one of the most popular shooter classics returns injected with a whole new retro b-movie look
  • An utterly in-your-face zombie-dismembering blast
    Non-stop light-gun shooting action on the Wii as you blow apart zombies for high-score thrills
  • Superb co-op action on Wii
    Grab a friend and play the game as intended in your own buddy action movie as two of the coolest characters in video gaming
  • Relentless, gore-drenched, over-the-top action
    Only the coolest, most cold-hearted agent’s going to keep his head against the zombie flood. Use “Slow-Mofo Time” to make the perfect head-popping shot and “Evil Eye” to spot moments of opportunity that’ll send the whole environment up in flames
  • Lighting quick Wii Remote reactions
    Get knee-deep in the dead with motion-sensitive Wii controls. Pump your shotgun, slam a fresh mag home in that 9-mil and work your lever-action rifle. When the zombies get too close, pistol whip their jaws off or cave in some heads with the butt of your gun – all in sickening close-up range!

No sequel news, but Sega is porting this to the PS3 Move. Unfortunately the assumption that the Wii version undersold is given more validity (obviously untrue).
