I'm often pretty terrible at picking up games I am interested in or just flat out playing them. I have my own backlog of sorts that I still need to work through, so what "Late to The Party" is going to be is just sort of my own late reviews of games that came out...really whenever ago.
As I said the game does have its problems, the platforming segments are frustrating since they don't really let you know where to go and the load times can be bothersome. But not of that really mattered to me when I was clearing a room full of enemies with destructive grace. The game keeps up a brisk pace and keeps the combat flowing pretty consistently with not to much in the ways of downtime. Just enough for some dialogue and exposition between the Mask and Rick. The music also helps keep the flow of the game moving too, though I'm not the biggest fan of death metal the tracks used did set the tone really well for the game and added a level of excitement to the games set pieces and boss battles.
I've never really typed a review before so I wanted to keep this somewhat short. In a nutshell if you were a fan of the original Splatterhouse games (which you do get the original 3 in the game!), are looking for some gory brutal combat similar to MK, or if some of your favorite movies are Evil Dead and even Riki-Oh, you will probably find a lot to love in Splatterhouse. I know I did.
