If you have ever played any of the Resident Evil
games, you know who the king of survival horror is. Evil Dead: Hail to the King
follows the same patterns and offers the same great gameplay. Unfortunately, THQ should have their hand cut off (only to be brought back to life, or course) for only supporting two kinds of gamepads (Gravis and Microsoft). The next best thing is to have a pad that can emulate the keyboard, or else you are stuck using the numeric keypad.
With that aside, Evil Dead does boast some great camera angles that add to the suspense of the game. While you control Ash running through the woods, YOU actually feel like you are truly being chased by the undead. Then, just when you thought you found shelter, you get attacked again! At some points in the game you may feel overwhelmed with bad guys popping up. But then again, Ash has never let us down before, right?
Evil Dead: Hail to the King begins where the first movie left off, and adds elements of the second movie for your hellish enjoyment. And because you control Ash, you get some neat weapons along your journey for the Necronomicon, or Book of the Dead. You start with a chainsaw, axe, and pistol, and will acquire a rifle and my personal favorite, the boomstick (shotgun)! Now just do what you do and kick some ASH! (Don't forget to taunt those Deadites with your typical Ash one-liners along the way!)
