Hail to the king-of crappo games

Pros Has Bruce Cambell doing voice overs
Cons everything in the game
Recommended it? No

First of all I must start by saying I am in fact a fan of the evil dead movies, and I tried really hard to enjoy this game but I just couldn't. I am really glad I rented this game because I would have spent to much if I would have bought it. The game does follow the same basic story line of the... Read full review »


Chainsaws, Boomsticks and Deadites, Oh My!

Pros Bruce Campbell, Evil Dead
Cons none
Recommended it? Yes

There have been many rumours about a fourth film to the series, but this is unlikely, as the last film didn?t do too well at the box office. For those fans of the Evil Dead series eager for more, Evil Dead ? Hail To The King will provide all of the entertainment that they could ever want.

Pros Bruce Campbell's real voice, though he sounds very bored - probably tried out this...
Cons Disappointing graphics, horrible camera views, boring sound,...
Recommended it? No

Nobody who has ever seen one of the Evil Dead movies, will ever forget the main character Ash. Bruce Campbell portrayed a sarcastic (anti-)hero who thought himself smarter and tougher than he really was, while reducing zombies and other creepy monsters left and right to rubble with his shotgun or...

Evil Dead ~ reverse to Resident Evil –; outside the mansion.

Pros Sound at best –; Bruce Cambell plays along as Ash.
Cons Gameplay; graphics; annoying at times.
Recommended it? No

Some things are better off left alone. As the Evil Dead film trilogy goes - leave it to increase in value, with the rest. Chances are you?ve seen Evil Dead, either as a child in the few years it appeared on video and TV, or you got yourself an old copy. Either way you?ll know that they were, hmm,... Read full review »


Mainly for fans of the series

Pros Good graphics, fun plot, nice settings
Cons Very hard, re-generated monsters get annoying
Recommended it? Yes

The opening is great, kinda creepy actually as we see Ash in his every day life. He meets a new chick, has nightmares about the cabin, so they decide to go back and confront it. The hand from #2 comes back and sets off the recording, and new chick is bye bye in no time. Ash then gets his... Read full review »

Pros It is just like the evil dead movies
Cons You have to find stuff you need to win in places that are very dark
Recommended it? Yes

Finally a real horror game and the plot is so good it makes me scream in terror this game really stirs up a lot of emotions in me. First of all there is a killer tree if you know anything about the trees from the Evil Dead movies you know that coming face to face with one and killing it is a real... Read full review »


I No Longer Hail To The King, Baby

Pros Evil Dead in a Game, Bruce Cambell
Cons Gameplay, graphics, Ruined the Movie, Horrible controls, EVERYTHING
Recommended it? No

Gameplay: This game was worse than the smell given off by a dead mule. Although the creators attempted to add thought, it just didn?t work. The game was full of incorrect scenes from the movie and took away all of the horror. Ghosts constantly appear from nowhere and hack the crap out of you. Then... Read full review »

Pros The chainsaw...the cut scenes... the one liners
Cons pretty much everything else
Recommended it? Yes

Well looks like Ash is at it again in Evil Dead: Hail to The King... or at least I had hoped... Unfortunately the game play for this game sucks. The controls are crappy. The graphics aren't astounding me. The game didn't even have the eerie feeling that Resident Evil gives you. I guess it could... Read full review »

Pros Incredibly faithful to the movies, features Bruce Campbell, great sound
Cons Mediocre graphics, clumsy controls
Recommended it? Yes

There is a visceral part to all of us, no matter how much we try to put on airs of sophistication. As much as I try to pass myself off as the Dorothy Parker of video games, I know I'm really just a degenerate gaming junkie who likes to make obscure references. And that gaming junkie, when not...

Pros Graphics are decent, chainsaw, getting to be Ash.
Cons Absolutely irritating gameplay
Recommended it? No

I love everything that is Evil Dead. I am one of the Evil Dead's biggest fans, so when I heard that there was an Evil Dead game coming out, I knew that I just had to get it, so I preordered it before Christmas, and when I got it, I just about died. I popped it in and waited for it all to start, and... Read full review »

Pros Story, graphics, and one-liners
Cons The sound just didn't sound right

This is a great game with awesome graphics. The Full Motion Videos explain what's happened to Ash over eight years. The story unfolds as a good story book. With awesome sounds and awesome weapons Ash bursts onto the scene. His girlfriends taken by Evil Ash. His hand starts the tape recorder. Even... Read full review »

Pros Beautiful sound, graphics, and talent
Cons Not-so-beautiful gameplay
Recommended it? No

Evil Dead fanatics have been waiting for this one for nearly a year! Hail to the King, baby!

Be prepared, be very prepared. This game will frustrate you early on. This is partly due to the naggy controls and fixed camera. So let's tackle this game one piece at a time.

I played this game a lot because it is addicting. But extremely complicated that is why it's addictive also. It's so complicated that it kinda sucks.

I never watched the movie that this game is based on but the storyline was good for the part I could understand. The storyline is so... Read full review »
