Did anyone actually expect Splatterhouse to be a good game? Anyone? Really? No, didn't think so. However, the general consensus is that it's a patronisingly basic game that's still mindless fun. Pulling out a demon's lungs through it's mouth has to be worth the price of admission by itself. I don't think that anyone will be nominating this one for Game Of The Year, but it's probably good for some good old gory catharsis.
