“Being rated higher than Killzone 2 is awesome” - Headstrong Games
Talking to us earlier this week, The House of the Dead: Overkill developers Headstrong Games have expressed their delight at having their game score higher than Killzone 2 in the most recent issue of EDGE Magazine.
When asked how it felt to be rated higher than Killzone 2, lead producer Neil McEwan replied:
“It feels pretty awesome! You know, because we thought we’re on the Wii, it’s a light gun game, it’s another on-rails shooter, we thought people would bring us down.
“I skipped home with EDGE’s review. We put a lot of effort into this game and I think that shows.”
The House of the Dead: Overkill was given an 8/10 in EDGE this month, while Killzone 2 had to settle for a 7, which sparked quite a bit of debate amongst you all.
The House of the Dead: Overkill releases today exclusively on Wii and you can read our full interview with Headstrong Games here.
Now, whether you feel that HotD: OK deserves the score and is better than KZ2 or not is for another debate. IMO, I think Headstrong Games should give themselves a pat on the back for doing a good job on the game and should be proud of themselves. What do you guys think?
