“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?

It's true that Headstrong should give themselves a pat on the back for something like this, but it's highly unprofessional of D-Pad to make such a big deal out of this.



Could I trouble you for some maple syrup to go with the plate of roffles you just served up?

Didn't play Killzone 2 yet but I can't see it being worse than HOD.

HOD is a good game by any measures but there is not really much texture to it. Week long rental type of game...

Actually both games are a jolly good time...so why brag?

I agree. I think D-Pad made a big deal out of it however, by the backlash that Edge got with their review. I mean that thing blow up more then a fattie eatting beans when it was dropped.

 



The Interweb is about overreaction, this is what makes it great!

...Imagine how boring the interweb would be if everyone thought logically?
