The graphics are rather basic and also have a bit of a cartoon
look. Though the graphics are not stunning, your character Ash
does look like the actor Bruce Campbell from the films. For the
levels them self look okay and the best effect that comes to mind
that I can think of is the water, you find some areas a bit flooded
or puddles of water and also the sewers that you walk though does
look right and has a nice reflection and movement to it.
The music I can recall myself, ether because there weren't much
or was not very good, apart from when you control Sam (Your Sidekick)
there's a good rock type beat music plays which is quite cool
but fades out somewhat quickly.
The sounds of the shotgun, pistol and chainsaw
also sounds okay and the enemies are no thing special, that don't
scare you at all as you would think it be more of a horror compared
to the Evil Dead movies.
The reason the game scores any points in
this section is because of the 2 main actors Bruce Campbell and
Ted Raimi, right through out the game they say funny, witty and
wacky comments they say about each other, enemy's and other thing
you encounter which can be ridiculous but still entertaining.
Not so much as side-splitting but amusing to listen to which doesn't
make the as boring with out it.
The basic control is show to you in a short training level in
the cabin and is pretty easy to use, which should cause any problems.
You have 2 weapons like a chainsaw on one and shotgun on other,
mean square is to fire and O is for the saw. The weapon change
is done by using the L2 and R2 for separate hands. There's also
triangle for finishing moves and use switches.
Starting off in the insane asylum with out your weapons, so you
must find them to get back in to action and kill all evil, with
only a pistol at first that you find of a dead guard, walking
though corridors in a building that blocks you off at every door
was very boring, thinking to myself of turning the game off after
20mins and not playing again but pushed myself to play more and
hope for the best.
Thank god it did improve as one you have
left the first level and head towards the woods, but first you
meet your sideKICK and how he changes the gameplay. Sam is a three-foot
tall part deadite, where as half his body has been turned to a
deadite but being such a good sole he's not turned evil. Being
small and dead you can you him in many ways, through the game
you may need to brake something so by using your sideKICK, kicking
him at items will destroy it as well as himself but then regenerates
for more torture.
As well as kicking Sam into exploding barrels
and spike pits just for fun, you can also kick him at the enemy
which gives you an advanced or he can just pull of his head on
the weaker ones. As well as Sam being useful in theses ways he
can also be possessed at points in the game by Ash for which you
then can get through holes in the wall and do a little task to
little Ash through into the area.
The outside levels are much better as it's
more open and gives you a feel of freedom, there's a few weapons
you pick up as you progress nut it's a shame you can't upgrade
There's only one route the take on all the levels so there's not
extra reply value there, plus the games short as it is, taken
you from a few days up to 2 weeks depending on how much you play
Its pretty easy and simple game, so if
an expert or a beginner you be able to do it even though the is
no difficult setting and the bosses are not that hard as you can
work it out instantly and finishing them reasonably fast.
Being as there are no upgrades, no unlock
able cheats, mini-games or anything apart from 20 interview videos
(mostly with Bruce Campbell) that only last a few minutes each
if that along as you found them in the game.
==BUY OR NOT TO BUY==
With no real replay value and being
there's much more better games out to buy, I would only advise
you to buy it if you're a big fan of the films and can get it
very cheap or just rent it.
