After a television station broadcasts the Book of the Dead tape live on air, the town of Dearborn is taken over by Deadites. You play as Ash, armed with his chainsaw, trusty boom stick and other weapons such as shovels, flamethrowers and guns, you must search the town to save the citizens from being infected by the Deadites and to save the town from being overrun by the unspeakable horrors which have spawned from the Necronomicon.

Hilarious dialogue, buckets of gore and a truly cheesy storyline...what more could you want from an Evil Dead game??
17 March 2007 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

The first Evil Dead game was a massive disappointment; it took me all of ten minutes to realise that it was unplayable, and for that reason, I never really saw the point in bothering with the Playstation 2 sequel. But now that older games can be picked up on the cheap, I decided to check this one out and I'm glad I did! I'm a massive fan of the Evil Dead series, and while I can't really say that this game truly captures the atmosphere of Sam Raimi's awesome films, I can say that it is great fun to play and the fact that Bruce Campbell has returned once again to voice the bumbling deadite slayer Ash is a huge bonus! The game centres on the town of Dearborn, where S-Mart's best employee Ashley J. Williams lives. Some occult obsessed professor has decided to translate the Necronomicon into English and on a live TV show - he makes a very silly decision - playing the tape with the incantations on it live! It's not long before Dearborn has been plunged into darkness and deadites are walking the streets. It's all up to Ash to save the world from evil once again...

The first thing you'll notice about this game is that it's GORY! Ash throws his chainsaw around and limbs leave bodies and blood goes everywhere. The combat system allows Ash to carry two weapons; obviously, chainsaw and boomstick from the outset, although there is more variety the further you get into the game. The game's engine allows multiple enemies on screen at once - and this means that Ash sometimes finds himself in the middle of literally dozens of deadites! It's impressive to watch, and great fun to control. The fact that so many enemies can be on screen at once means that the game has a real 'fast and furious' feel to it, and this is what makes it so much fun. However, this also has a flip side to it. The focus is always on the combat, so the rest of the game feels a bit empty. The locations are all very similar and you're not able to interact with much of it, which can mean a lot of running around in circles. Furthermore, the constant stream of enemies can be a nuisance, especially when you're looking for something. And it's really easy. But Bruce's dialogue makes it all worthwhile in the end; that's where this game best succeeds at being part of The Evil Dead franchise. Some of his lines really are awesome, my favourite is "We replaced this deadite's brain with a chainsaw blade...let's see if he notices". Overall, how much you like this game may depend on how much you like the films; but I definitely recommend giving it a go as A Fistful of Boomstick is a lot of fun!
