    Hail To The King, the first real videogame based on the Evil Dead Trilogy is a faithful material, unfortunately married

    Rated on January 09, 2006 by JuggaloBR

    When I first heard of this game, years ago, I was already a hardcore Evil Dead series fan, I loved those movies. I didn't like games that much back then, though (a little The Sims or Roller Coaster Ty...

    A part of me wants to hate this game because its a hideous Resident Evil rip off and it makes things a huge pain in the ass by being unforgiving and in ways you feel like the creators (and even Bruce ...

    Great Idea, But it could have turned out much better than how it is

    Now I am a big fan of the survival horror genre, which includes games like Resident Evil and Silent Hill. Even though I knew about the poor reviews of this game, I bought this game because I thought i...

    One of the most difficult and frustrating games I own.

    Rated on August 25, 2008 by Shoujo-Gamer

    I never have watched the movies this game was based on so that might have influenced my review. Maybe I missed the 'point' of the game. If you looking for a game to draw you in and scare you int...

    &quot;Why are you torturing me like this? Why?&quot;

    Rated on August 21, 2007 by ImpSlayer

    The quote above is both true and false. You see, when it was announced that an Evil Dead game was being made, I was really excited. I bought it, put the beautiful disc in my PSone, and pressed the mag...

    A game that has spawned from one of the best horror movie series ever, can it live up to the hype?

    Rated on December 12, 2005 by Jabbawocky04

    Now Hail to the King is an odd game for me, it is a game that has more bad points than good but I love it. This is a continuation from the film series with Ash now eight years on and has mostly re-pie...

    Evil Dead: So Slow-So Boring

    Rated on January 20, 2008 by ng2006

    This game was absolutely boring. Even now that I'm thinking to it to review it I'm bored! LOL Bad: First of all it's very slow. You may experience this slowness even after runing it on a powerful...
