      Lots of gore splattering violence!

      This move compatible game is an excellent example of a rail shooter. The game follows a linear pattern where as you are moved around the areas, things (mainly zombie/mutants) jump out and attack you. The Move controller works as an excellent gun, especially if you buy a pistol attachment ( I picked one up for £2). It is compelling game play with pickups to shoot and a bonus applied to accuracy. The more shots you can time in a row the better the rewards, which unlock new weapons at the end of each level. These bonuses and harder modes you can unlock will keep up the replay value of this game.

      The story is basically a cheesy, perverted and occasionally hilarious B-movie type script. It is certainly not something appropriate for anyone under the age of 18 or for that matter your grandparents.

      This game also comes with stereoscopic and anaglyphic 3D, which means you either need a 3D TV or to use the included red and blue glasses. As I can't afford a 3D TV I can only comment on the second type of 3D, it is a great novelty, especially when something flies out at you, but hurt my head and so I stopped using it quite quickly.

      All in all a really enjoyable game if you like shooters and don't get easily offended or scared.

      fun to play with friends on a night in

      First things first, my other half is the gamer in the family, not me, I usually get stuck watching him play and don't have an interest in playing anything harder than a board or quiz game myself. We have a gun attachment for our playstation move and so after having watched him play thought it looked easy enough for me to have a go. I found I was surprisingly good at shooting mutants and during these parts of the game I was engaged in what was going on, and, until the final battle (the weirdest most disturbing battle by far!) I didn't actually die very often. Some of the cut scenes went on a bit because to be honest I was not overly interested in the story myself, but this did give me time to rest my trigger finger. The storyline is like a badly written b movie. It is meant to be like that for comedy value and parts are indeed humourous. But BEWARE if you are easily shocked or there is a chance of kids overhearing or seeing you play this there is a lot of swearing, overtly sexual overtones including incest, and of course it's violent! I played the game straight through in an afternoon and it was enjoyable. It is not however a game I would go back to over and over again. We only have 1 move controller but the game has 2 player mode. It would be fun to play with friends during a night in. It is not a good enough game to pay full price for.
