According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language
Parents might have some concern about Regeneration's Mature rating. The game does certainly have some coarse language (although not on par with something like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas) and it's definitely bloody and violent. That being said, most of it's presented in a more humorous way than anything, much like the violence and gore in the films. If your child can handle the standard R-rated film, there's nothing to worry about in this game.
Evil Dead Fans will definitely want to add this to their collection. While the game itself is essentially average, the use of Bruce Campbell and the Evil Dead license give the title some much needed oomph. This is a game for the fans, and it's hard to imagine anyone who loves the films not finding at least something to like in the game.
Casual Gamers will probably be pleased by the $20 price tag, but if you don't know your Evil Dead from Dawn of the Dead then this is probably a rental at best. The game is short, and it's not overly ambitious.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will undoubtedly find this experience a mixed one. While the game's cutscenes feature an option for full subtitling, the banter between Ash and Sam in the game is voice-only. Even with the subs, players will be missing Bruce and Ted Raimi, who certainly give the dialogue some added flair.
A film critic by trade, specializing in Euro-horror, cult exploitation, and Asian action cinema, Mike has written reviews for a diverse group of print and online publications. He covers horror news, movies, books, and games at TheHorrorGeek.com and Horrorsquad.com and spent two seasons as The Horror Geek on Comedy Central's pop-culture game show, Beat the Geeks.
Mike's childhood was spent playing videogames any time he got a chance. His parents had a Pong console and his grandmother had an Atari 2600, where Mike cultivated his skills by playing hour upon hour of games like Space Invaders, Berserk, and Asteroids. From those early experiences Mike learned one thing: he loved games.
In 1999, Mike became a staff reviewer at Cinescape Magazine's website where he spent a year learning the craft of game criticism. After internal changes led to Mike leaving Cinescape in late 2000, he joined up with RPGFan in 2001 and spent several years writing reviews for them. Happy, but looking for an opportunity to expound on a wider variety of titles, Mike joined GameCritics.com and hopes to help Chi, Dale, and the rest of the GC staff bring a higher level of respect to the field of game criticism.
