The Typing of the Dead: Overkill reviews ( 7 )

T-1001, Oct 31, 2013

Totally worth the price, which is pretty low to begin with. It's pretty much just like the original with some minor improvements and you'll obviously be playing through the Overkill story. Not much else to say really. You get the minigames, there's a leaderboard, and there's an upcoming Multiplayer patch. Oh, and probably the most surprising one, you get the complete original Overkill! I was pretty stunned that it was included, although you'll only be able to play it with your mouse or gamepad. Another interesting addition seems to be custom dictionaries, although can't say much about that yet. If you like the original and you can accept the new direction that Overkill took (which I love), then get this game. Not disappointing at all. Beware! There's one con: the video options are PAINFULLY limited. there's only a couple resolutions to choose from at the moment and then you have anti-aliasing on/off. That's it. It does run smooth as butter however, and the resolutions weren't too far off from what I usually run, so it's pretty minor in my case.

Typing of the Dead Overkill tasks keyboard warriors with slaying countless hoards of ghouls and mutants via typing. Random phrases and words appear in front of each enemy and as you type the word the mutants are blasted to bits. The game is loads of fun and at the discounted price of $10 it was definitely a must buy. It also comes with House of the Dead Overkill allowing you to blast mutants with your mouse. It's based on the PS3 version of the game which has some nice unlockables and bonus levels. I'd recommend this to anyone.

First of all this is a great game, one of very few that will actually teach you something. What I dislike is it is worse than the prequel (Typing of the Dead) was better in many of its aspects. It was smarter, the boss fights were not only about typing speed, but also about accuracy, special keys etc. The amount of minigames and their variety was great. This all is at least half missing in this release. The only improvement is you're able to compare your scores online with other players, but aside of that I'd say its a downstep from the original game. Original game should be rated 10/10 this one deserves 6-7/10 (giving it 7 just because of the nostalgia to the original). Maybe with some additional patches, dlcs, vocabularies and multiplayer coming it will deserve more.

Typing of the Dead: Overkill is a typing/rail shooter game, where you type phrases as quickly as possible to kill zombies. I've always kind of enjoyed typing games, and while I don't think this game has much merit in teaching you how to type properly, it's a fun game with an interesting sense of humor. There's not too much to talk about with the gameplay. You type as quickly as possible, using Tab to pick up secrets and power-ups. What's more interesting to discuss with this game is how it's presented: as an old, low-budget horror movie. It tries very hard to be as cheesy as possible. Sometimes the phrases you type relate to the level you're playing, which gets pretty funny in the strip club level. This game is a bit lewd at times, and the swearing is excessive... not saying that's a bad thing, but it's something you should know going in to it. Typing of the Dead: Overkill also includes House of the Dead: Overkill. The story is the same, but you play a standard rail shooter with normal controls instead of typing. I like switching between the two, just to change things up. House of the Dead is a little older, but as far as I know, this the only way to play the game on PC. If a rail shooter or typing game sounds fun to you, then this would be a good game to pick up. There's a lot of content in this game, so at $20, I don't think you'll be disappointed. Rail shooters and typing games aren't for everyone, and this game probably won't win you over to the genre (unless the movie aesthetic really appeals to you, I guess), but I've had a lot of fun with it so far, and I plan to keep playing it for a little while.

The Typing of the Dead: Overkill is certainly a game wrapped inside it's own niche little genre. If you want a Zombie Type-em-up / B-Grade Horror Movie / Reboot of a 2000 Dreamcast game, then this is your only option. But it's not a bad option at all. What it does, it does very well, while being very tongue-in-cheek about it. If you've ever played any House of the Dead game, then you'll feel right at home. This game is ported from the remake; House of the Dead: Overkill. There's one "key" difference, in that you swap out your light gun for your keyboard. I know, right? I've always thought words were more powerful than weapons. As you progress through a level (on the rails), you'll see various zombies ambling their way towards you, accompanied with words or even long phrases. All you gotta do it type a word/phrase at a time to kill the zombies. Easy. But, when they start to pile up on screen, getting ever closer, panic starts to settle in. You can easily be overcome. Not only that, but you could get distracted by the chuckle-worthy phrases that do pop up. I don't want to shoot a zombie that has the words FREE HUGS under it! This game could aim for an educational purpose, helping people to touch-type, if only it wasn't for its non-family-friendly look. The Typing of the Dead: Overkill is an overall good game with a unique mechanic. Just don't come looking here for a deep story or compelling drama. Just expect to type words at zombies for a few hours. And hey, there's nothing wrong with that.

Well where to even begin. I was quite a fan of the original Typing of the Dead when it came out, it was at the time when SEGA was still a semi strong company. I loved the idea and at the time it was a nice innovation to the stagnating on rail shooter genre. Then when I saw this is to come out for the PC, I cheered up. Finally a sequel to the long awaited typing experience and a good one too at least thats what I gathered from the console version. Well I thought they would actually put some effort into this PC port and they didn't. Firstly it looks like it has been made in around 2003. Everything is so low res some stages actually looks like something from Resident Evil 2. Yeah, it is that bad. Animations are poor, environments bland and uninspired and its just a whole bunch of horror clich├ęs being thrown together meh. Story? Well there isn't any, but who cares this game tries to pretend its a cheesy B movie from the 90's with its F bombing by a afroamerican detective, funky music and bars full of hookers and motorcycle bikers. There is no reason to listen to the dialogues or watching the cutscenes, because it hasn't any real meaning to it. That doesn't matter tho the bigger problems are repetitive gameplay, not many types of enemies, easy bosses and overall boring gameplay. Typing various words or sentences is still a big fun, but not in this outdated and totally stupid environment. So much potential wasted. If you can get this for like 5-8 bucks, go for it, otherwise wait for some sale, because this is the type of game you will play once and never look back.

I was a huge fan of the Original Typing of the Dead. Typing of the Dead (the original) is IMHO, the best way to become a fast typist without looking at your hands because you can't win and look at your hands. I bought Overkill on release day, despite it's M rating assuming that rating referred to gore and scariness. Nope: 'M' in this case refers to the most F-bombs per sentence of any game I have ever played. There is no setting to alleviate the constant barrage of F-bombery. There are single sentences with three or four curses. It's really just a lack of imagination. However, it begs another question: who is this game for? In today's typing-oriented world... how many people are still trying to learn to type by the time they are old enough for M rated games? I bought the game in the hopes of replacing my ragged old copy of the original, that my two kids (10 and 12) are using. Nope. No way I can let them play this. I can't trade an increase in words-per-minute for an increase in curses-per-minute. The typing itself doesn't include any swearing, though it has some suspect phrases such as "Gimp Suit" and "I hate old people" (really). It's a real shame, because it seems like the game-play is all there: a solid on-rails shooter, driven by typing. Had they offered an option to decursify the game, I'd probably be rating it an 8 or 9 (haven't finished it yet, and I'm not sure I will).
