Playing so much Splatterhouse
I had my doubts about this game, and even though the “storyline” isn’t anything to write home about, it’s on par with most video game storylines. The blood and brutality of it really pleases me though. In the side scrolling sections (which I thought I’d hate) you run along with a pipe or a 2x4 and as you start whacking enemies as they come at you, you watch their bodies splatter against the wall, against each other and most excitingly against the camera. I also love the blood stains on the camera. Kinda lame but it’s a nice touch.
Also very much enjoy the destruction of the character as your health weakens or as you take heavy damage, torn skin, exposed muscles, organs and bones and dismembering of ones own limbs which one can than pick up and proceed to smack the heads of annoying enemies.
Quite fun really.
And the voice of the mask is played by the same person who did Ed the Hyena from Lion King. -> totally relevant.
