Review: “Splatterhouse 2” – SEGA Genesis (Festival of Dread special, repost)

Of all the games I’ve owned, sold, repurchased, etc., over the years, I’ve never sold any of my original Splatterhouse games. Why? Because braining demons with blunt objects and watching their unholy essence spray from their freshly-cracked skulls is good ol’ family fun. Wholesome shit, am I right? My personal experience with the Splatterhouse series went like this: Splatterhouse (TG-16 version), Splatterhouse 3, and finally Splatterhouse

Well, my plans of playing through every single Dreamcast launch title for the 20th birthday of the “little white system that should have” didn’t exactly pan out as I had hoped, but I got the good majority of games booted up and played on 9/9/19!
