Nice article. Someone needs to make more games with this horror movie style, i can't think of any recent games that even try its all survival horror or psychological.

I am a proud owner of Splatterhouse tennis shoes. I cannot for the life of me understand why they made these (except as an exceptionally bad idea tie in for the xbox 360 game) but I am so happy to own them. Even have little metal masks sewn into the sides. Blood splatters as well, of course.

Anyway, I love this series. I had the original on (and still have) turbo graphixs 16. was the only reason to own that system to me.

Played the Grafitti famicom version on a nester disc emulator years later, and absolutely love it. It's almost a perfect game. One of my favourite "nintendo" games ever actually. So good I wish I would of had it when I was playing nintendo in the old days.

Never did get to play 2 or 3. But the greatest thing about Splatterhouse 2010 is that it has all three of the (main, not grafiti) games as playable extras!

So now I get ot enjoy the brutal love of playing 2 and 3 through, without having to track down the original cartridges (though I may do it anyway to be a complitest.)

Thanks for this review. Much needed awesome horror awesome for October.

I'm glad there isn't a game that gives you the chance to play as a real killer or is there?Games is all about being creative it can appeal to anyone even if you're a cowboy in real life you'll like Red Dead:Redemption,I want to play Red Dead Redemption Undead nightmare.Okay So I'm off topic about this game so what?I'm a troll!!

West Mansion has some articles about Splatterhosue 2010. Basically, the development team got totally screwed in the end. Namco abandoned the game as soon as it launched. Splatterhouse 2010 even had some of the best writing I've seen in a video game. Dr. West is absolutely perfect. It's a shame, too, because the only game I enjoyed more last year was Vanquish.

I've been waiting for a thorough breakdown of this series to show up on the site for a while. I knew that it's arrival was inevitable. Great job Boogie, I didn't know about all these.

Glad you all like it.

If I could just go back to Splatterhouse 3 for a minute: imagine you're 9 years old, and you're playing this game this game for the first time. You're moving along, trying to get through the stages in a timely fashion, and then this pops up:



Talk about piling on.

That's pretty much exactly what happened to me. I first rented this after a hockey game one Saturday morning and, yeah, it was unlike any other game I'd played. Nice to see you finally got a use for that Rick gif--though the one in your sig isn't working.

Also nice that you didn't call Biggyman "Bagman" this time around. You also called George Romero "John Romero" in another article. Tsk tsk.

Anyway, I saw the link to this on Facebook while I was at work and made sure I got a chance to read it later. Weeeeelll done.

Great review! I didn't even know there was a Splatterhouse 2 or 3, let alone the Graffiti one.

I enjoyed all of the Splatterhouse games, including the 2010 version. My complaint about it is that it's too short, not too long. The game is artifically legthened by a bunch of brawl sessions, instead of adding in more wild boss battles and stages. More animations would have been welcomed, of course, but they aren't THAT bad.

Btw it isn't a remake. It is hinted at via the storyline that time travel and alternate realities play a part in this sequel, or prequel, or remake, or AR variant....we don't know what it is. I sure hope they make a sequel though.

Btw, anyone who is insterested in these games pickup the 2010 version. The other three games are included as a bonus.

Nicely done. The funniest part of Wanpaku Graffiti is the part where you get to fart in the teahouse. Yes, I'm that juvenile.

I found good versions of both Rick and Hell Chaos (the big rotting head boss) to use in M.U.G.E.N., along with appropriate stages for them. The Rick character is pretty funny, as he uses tons of projectile moves ripped from other Namco arcade games, like Pac-Man (who bloodily attacks the opponent's crotch) and Dig Dug (who inflates them until they pop).

What bothers me about Splatterhouse 2010 is that they had Jim Cummings as the Terror Mask. I dunno, but, when I think of the terror mask, I don't think Mr. Cummings. I imagine a dark, inhuman voice speaking directly into Rick's brain and simply laughing and urging Rick to kill harder with some kind of sadistic, taunting form of motivation. When I heard Jim's voice as the mask, I felt like as if someone had been miscast or something.

I otherwise enjoyed it just fine. Having the first three games added as a bonus made it even better.

I first came across Splatterhouse when I rented Splatterhouse 3 for my Genesis. I fell in love instantly. Splatterhouse 2010 was a great reboot, especially with the original 3 games included. I really hope they make a sequel to it. The world needs more Splatterhouse.

Splatterhouse 3 is my personal favorite. Now, getting the remake might be worth it since all 3 classic games are on 1 disc.

Splatterhouse was a late find for me. I had a SNES when I was a kid, so I never got a chance to try these games until I was introduced to emulators, and I remembered this one creepy ad for Splatterhouse 3 I saw once in a Batman comic. Having gone through all of them, I can say that the first 4 games were brilliant, especially with the use of gore and how they worked with the limitations of the 16-bit era.

Sadly, the new one had a lot going against it. The creativity was abit lacking, and the non-stop heavy metal music killed whatever creepy mood the game tried to provide. Also, the over-use of quick time events and the lack of enemy diversity made the 2010 game a chore to finish. I actually found myself enjoying the 2D parts alot more, especially with the 16-bit styled music. I happen to agree with Joe Musashi when he said that the writing of the Terror Mask was all wrong. I imagined a cruel entity that constantly egged Rick on to commit more monsterous actions, not some lame joker that swears too much. If Namco makes another one, I hope they go back to the creepy mood and eject the comedy.
