Also worth pointing out is the fact that mainstream reviewers got an early beta build of the game which lead to most negative reviews that had nothing to do with the final product.
However, there are some horror websites that gave the game positive reviews:
- Fangoria: 3 1/2 skulls out of 4
- Bloody Disgusting: "I absolutely recommend this game."
- Dread Central: 4.5/5, stating it "is most likely going to be considered the premiere horror game of 2010."
- FEARnet: “Splatterhouse is a nostalgic blast.”
- Daily Dead: 3.5 out of 5 stars
- Rue Morgue Magazine: 4 out of 5
- Joblo (Arrow in the Head): 8 out of 10
