Quoted from Splatterhouse Reviews:Check out these quotes from Splatterhouse reviews & previews
"Looking for the key, Rick? It's blood. The answer's always blood." This line, spoken early on in Splatterhouse, a remake of the tacky and extremely gory 1988 arcade/TurboGrafx-16 game of the same name, is the thesis for the ensuing 10 hours and 11 levels. That should come as no surprise, though; Splatterhouse is now, as it's always been, a jubilant celebration of bad taste. But perhaps since it isn't exactly the most popular or even most well-known series around, Splatterhouse has been brought into the modern era with a couple of publicity stunts every bit as bloated and cheesy as the menacing dialog. Rick's girlfriend, Jenny, who's been kidnapped by the nefarious Dr. West, took time away from her Stockholm Syndrome and screaming to pose for Playboy (do a Google search, you'll find the picture I'm talking about). Rick's flashy sneakers that squeak after you've run through too much blood? They can be yours for a mere $84.99 thanks to Namco's collaboration with Globe Shoes. (Chainsaw sold separately.) The line at the beginning of this review, delivered by Jim Cummings (a.k.a. the voice of Tigger and Winnie The Pooh) as the fourth wall-breaking Terror Mask, is probably one of the least twisted things going on in Splatterhouse...blaring "rape rock" soundtrack notwithstanding."
" Whoa, hey there Splatterhouse, long time no see. What’s it been? Seventeen years? Really? Well then, it may be no surprise if readers have never heard of you. For the uninitiated, Splatterhouse was a fairly shallow, side-scrolling beat-‘em-up originally in the arcade so very long ago, and then it moved on to consoles, spawning two sequels. Now we’re getting yet another “reboot” but this time of a positively ancient series... ..."
" If you can be turned off by excessive blood in games, steer clear of Splatterhouse. Now, that could seem like an obvious statement based purely on the title of the game, but we must clarify that none of the previous Splatterhouse games even scratches the surface of how bloody this reboot gets. Just beat on a few standard enemies for ten seconds and the environment in a thirty foot radius will be a Jackson Pollock painting if he only used one color. It’s beyond ridiculous, but for some it will be just too gross. Others, like us, will just chuckle at it initially and then become blind to it – by the end we didn’t even notice the blood anymore... ..."
"All the gore in the world can't disguise Splatterhouse's laundry list of clumsy mechanics. "
