Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick – Consumer Guide

Mike Bracken's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Violence

Parents should approach Evil Dead with trepidation. It's a game wherein one of the main objectives is to hack undead monsters (who used to be human) to pieces with a chainsaw. Blood and gore are common sights throughout the adventure. The game also features some sexual innuendo during the cutscenes, and even a mention of the infamous porn film Deep Throat 

Evil Dead fans will want to pick this up (the game is a measly $20) posthaste. The Bruce Campbell dialogue alone more than makes up for any of the flaws in the gameplay. It's not the classic Evil Dead game we've all been waiting for, but it's certainly better than Hail To The King.

Casual gamers might want to take a 'rent first' approach. The lower than normal price point makes the game worthy of a purchase, but players who didn't enjoy games like State Of Emergency and Hunter: The Reckoning will likely find problems with this game as well.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers can certainly play and enjoy this title. All the dialogue is presented with subtitles as well as spoken aloud. However, they will miss out on some of the game's charm, which is embodied through Bruce Campbell's deadpan line delivery.
