Turbo Overkill delivers true FPS innovation: a chainsaw leg

In 1987, The Evil Dead 2 introduced the chainsaw arm. Now, 35 years later – almost my whole life – it chainsaw legs is here finally and I’m glad to say it was worth the wait.

I did not know that one of my legs was a chainsaw in Turbo Overkill until I reached the instructions for the leg chain saw, so it came as a nice surprise. You use it by sliding against enemies on the ground, the chainsaw stretched out, like a baseball player sliding into a base. Aside from that, imagine that these baseball players can somehow slip all the way from one base to the next. That’s the reach of the roller coaster. The ability is introduced in an indoor skate park so you can practice hitting slopes for speed, and that was the moment I knew I wanted to be to Turbo Overkill – about two minutes into the game.
