House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut (PS3)
Advantages: Easy pick up and shoot, good replay value, friends will enjoy a go
Disadvantages: 3D wears thin quickly, tiring to play for long periods of time
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.
Summary: Lots of gore splattering violence!
