First next-gen Splatterhouse screens hit the web, very bloody

Czech gaming Web site Tiscali Games has just posted the first screenshots from Namco Bandai’s upcoming next-gen gore fest, Splatterhouse.

From the screens the game looks to have a God of War-like vibe, with the ‘roid-raged Rick tearing apart monsters with both his bare hands, in addition to busting skulls with his trademark wooden board. Other than the fact that Rick looks disproportional and ridiculous (which we already were prepared for), there’s not much else to go on.

I’m all about tearing off monster’s heads and smashing in their faces with 2x4s, but I’m going to remain cautious about this title. There’s something about it that just looks … off. Am I alone in this feeling?
