God I miss the Dreamcast

blznblzn2 | Dec. 3, 2013 | Review of Typing of the Dead: Overkill

I know I'll probably mention the Dreamcast more than this game itself, but it's essential I think.

WII was a gimmick as it was just a controller and well we know now it was a concept that overall didnt work but as a console lasted for years. and to a lesser extent Dreamcast had gimmicks, but it had a functional controller for the mainstream games But TOTD for Dreamcast was one of those, brilliant, just an idea waiting to be made, and it was. This game hearkens back to those days when I thought there was much more out there and 12 years later life goes on, to say the least.

I guess this is a review for nostalgia and lets push things forward, it was a gameplay concept that worked. An on rails shooter where you typed to kill your enemies. Sounded ridiculous back in the Dreamcast days, still sounds ridiculous , but its a niche and I hope people out there remember that there is still hope for original concepts. even though technically this isnt an original concept just a sequel to an original one.

Great fantastic nostalgic gameplay and the story aint half bad either.
