    First came Dead Space: Extraction and now comes yet another of the Wii's awesome on rail shooter "House of the Dead: Overkill" is on its way to the PS3 Move.

    Its also 3D compatible...if you know you like that sort of thing.

    Ending from the Wii title, warning not the least bit safe for work, your parents (if you're under 18) or for people who can't take bad language.

    The Wii version was terrific, the most fun I've had with a multiplayer game on the Wii.
    So damn funny.
    There was a lot of room for improvement though, it's a shame the PS3 gets it...

    Are you suggesting a sequel be made for the Wii?

    This game was so awful. Its literally the worst game in the HOTD series.

    It was supposed to be a funny Tarantino-Style rail shooter. If you don't dig Pulp Fiction, you won't dig the humour in this. It's meant to be over-the-top, y'know.

    If I were to point at the worst HOTD game, I'd say hands down HOTD 3 - it sucked even on the Arcade machine.

    Fixed for self righteousness.

    Seriously have you played this game? Also being an owner of the PS3 move and the Wii motion plus, despite the Move's increase motion fidelity its actually worse when it comes to shooters. The game "The Shoot" is a pretty good example. I don't know if that giant glowing orb at the end of the controller has anything to do with the problem, but yeah, its a lot less accurate than the Wii, only when it comes to shooting.

    The Move also required 8.5 feet from the TV for proper play. (Play Sports Champions and you'll see this warning several times.) This makes it somewhat like the Kinect (which I also own) in that it requires a house the size of a bowling alley to get optimal performance.

    And yeah, HOTD Overkill is laughably bad.

    Warning, this video contains lulz worthy amounts of cursing.

    Comparing this pile of crap to a Tarantino film? Now I've seen everything. Pulp Fiction was intelligent, well written, not a shoot em up, and not filled with cursing every 30 seconds.

    OK, but my original post still stands, that doesn't give you the right to state opinion as fact and then somehow change my post about your fact being stated as opinion to mean something that is pretty ignorant and a little self-conscious.

    In short, unless you can prove it's the worst HOTD game, you shouldn't state opinion as fact.

    The Move will never be as good as a Wii Mote in Rail Shooters, and it is indeed because of the orb.

    The Wii Remote controlled the cross-hair using IR sensors - the "reticle light" was small and thus very accurate. The colourful orb, while it allows better movement along the various axis, it's too "big" to pin-point an exact spot on the screen.


    I also wouldn't vouch for the Move controllers to be better than WiiMotion Plus controllers - the set lacks an off-hand gyro, plus the orb causes some inaccuracy in shooters like this one. I'd say that both sets have their advantages and disadvantages, but for shooters, the Wii setup is much better.

    ...too bad that the console itself is so underpowered. It could be a great FPP/Rail Shooter-oriented console if it had the guts to sport HD games. We'll see what the Wii2 shows off. I hope it'll be compatible with contemporary WiiMotes for FPP purposes, I actually prefere to play shooters using the 'motes.

    In short, you should stop getting your panties in a bunch over the opinions of other people on the internet. Its just childish and rude.

    Also, if you want proof of my OPINION just watch the laughable youtube video I posted.

    I can see you didn't read my posts too hard.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Also, that wasn't proof. Nor was it funny IMO (see, that's stating opinion as opinion, not fact; you should try it sometime).

    You must have missed all the good scenes then because that movie had some outrageous parts in it and there was lots of swearing in it. Great film though.

    House of the Dead Overkill had it's issues, but it was a diamond in the coal mine of Wii shovelware.
