House of the Dead: Overkill

The House of the Dead series started life in 1996 as an arcade game. Players assume the role of agents Thomas Rogan and “G” in their efforts to combat the products of the dangerous, inhumane experiments of Dr. Curien, a mad scientist.

Overkill was the first House of the Dead title to be released exclusively on console, and was also Headstrong’s first involvement with the series. The transition between arcade game and home console was a great success, and on release, Overkill received praise from numerous industry critics, picking up the Editor’s Choice Award from IGN.com, and the Gamespot’s award for the Funniest Game of 2009.
