    Another childhood memory worth the waiting

    Ever since I first laid eyes upon visuals from this game, I was utterly horrified and simultaneously intrigued. It was released in 1990, when I was 11. I was watching GamePro TV on Saturday morning, and they had a segm... Read Full Review

    Survivial horror... no but cool I guess.

    I am a horror junkie but this game was a let down. I was so excited when this was on it way. I got it and I just lots a my energy. The whole concept is cool but it lacks all around. It is like your are the main character... Read Full Review

    Underrated.

    Splatterhouse for the TG16 was really good in my eyes. I enjoy playing it. Sure its a toned down a bit from the Japanese version (PC ENGINE) but it still plays the same and sounds the same. Rick Taylor has a red mask.... Read Full Review

    This new versioned graphics and music ruined why this game was even good at all

    Don't waste your money on this. The new version made has nothing that made that old game so known-at-all. Since i see that people like you are smart and saw through this piece of garbage remake. I see only like 1 othe... Read Full Review

    A pretty good port considering the hardware it's running on.

    Before the Mortal Kombats and Grand Theft Autos of today shocked us with gore and violence old-school gamers would argue that Splatterhouse blazed the trail. Released in 1988 for the arcade and later ported (and ported w... Read Full Review

    Now this is good but how did it make conflict with parents about it being "too gory" or whatever.

    Now the arcade game was awesome and so is this but too bad they had to remove some graphics stuff, some animations, and some censorship in the US made the game kinda lame in the gore factor. graphics - They look great... Read Full Review

    The first game that actually scared me.

    Slatterhouse was the only game that made me even consider ever getting the defunct TurboGrafx-16. It is also the first game to scare the hell out of me. Not that it made me jump out of my chair, but more of a dread tha... Read Full Review

    House of Gore

    This is the first in the famous but underrated survival horror franchise "Splatterhouse" and after all these years it's still a bloody good time. This adaptation of the arcade game I think is great even though may'be no... Read Full Review
