Splatterhouse is a horror hack-and-slash, and a reboot of the 1998 game of the same name. Players battle enemies with either makeshift weapons or in hand-to-hand combat with a variety of attacks and chained combos, with the ability to unlock new moves and special attacks.
After his girlfriend is kidnapped at the hands of Dr. West's experiments, Rick is left for dead in the attack. He finds and puts on the Terror Mask which transforms him into a beast that gains strength through the blood of others. With this new dark power, Rick trails after Dr. West in order to stop his evil plans and rescue his girlfriend.
Splatterhouse received mixed reviews, with an average score of 56%, praised by some for its story, visuals, and overall fun, while criticized by others for its poor mechanics, shallow gameplay, and tasteless design.
Splatterhouse requires two full playthroughs, one on its hardest difficulty, as well as earning S Ranks in the Survival Arena stages. The Survival Arena stages can be a bit frustrating at times, as well as a few moments when playing on its hardest difficulty. But overall, the Platinum is quite doable for any average gamer with enough patience.
Expect roughly 20 hours of gameplay, depending on your skills.
You will first need to complete one full playthrough in order to unlock Brutal mode, so feel free to start on whatever difficulty mode you wish. Aside from the story-related trophies you'll naturally unlock during your first playthrough, you should also focus on the many kill-related trophies, as well as finding all the collectibles in the form of gramophones and photos of Jen.
Once you've completed your first playthrough, you will have unlocked Brutal mode. Start your second playthrough on this mode, while working on any kill-related trophies you may still be missing at this point.
With that out of the way, it's time for the more frustrating portion: earning S Rank on the levels in Survival Arena. Just keep patient and refer to the guides under our Links tab for extra support, and you should be fine.
Finally, if there are any trophies you're still missing, use the Chapter Select to mop-up anything left.
