Very good

Just a few months into the Wii's third year and already things are looking far more promising for the 'core' gamer than in 2008. A case in point is The House of the Dead: Overkill, released very early into the year. Overkill seems to be a spin-off, prequel and reboot of the...read full review

All well and good but a full on zapper, motion, analog, action game would have been great. Plain old light gun games are ok, but come on, a survival horror house of the dead would rock.

Man, Wii has more horror titles coming than I first thought. We already got Alone in the Dark (although that game sucks), Resident Evil: UC and RE4: Wii Edition, and The House of the Dead 2 & 3. Then coming soon is Fatal Frame IV, Curse Mountain, Dead Rising: CTYD, Sadness, Fragile, and now this. I'm glad I own a Wii for all of them.

Just picked up this game today and can't believe how laggy the controls are, even reloading lags and the gun sounds coming from the wiimote speaker are so bad (low and staticy) that I though my wiimote was broken! What happened sega? Ghostsquad has better gameplay than this.

This game is fun! Once you upgrade the weapons, especially the auto shotgun it's awesome. Use two guns at the same time.
