The Army of Darkness iPhone Game Looks Disappointingly Lame

Alright, I challenge you to click play on the trailer above and watch all the way to the end. I’m a huge, huge Army of Darkness fan, but even I didn’t have the patience to watch a minute and a half of gameplay from the new Army of Darkness iPhone game. Man, this just looks so boring and uninteresting, and considering the source material, that’s a pretty tough feat to pull off! But oddly enough, only about half of the Evil Dead video game adaptations are any good – I’m looking at you, Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick and Evil Dead: Regeneration. One wouldn’t think it’d be that difficult to make a quality game about a guy with a chainsaw for a hand who kills demons, but apparently it is. I’ll probably try the demo of this game, if indeed there is one, but based on this video, I highly, highly doubt I will ever pay money to play it.

For those interested, Army of the Darkness for the iPhone comes out May 12, 2011.
