In the original Undead Syndrome, the game opened with your character being stabbed in the back in broad daylight, blacking out and waking up in a strange place not unlike S*lent H*ll as imagined by S*da51 during a fever dream.

Undead Syndrome 2 opens with what you'd imagine S*da51 would have done with S*lent H*ll's joke UFO ending, i.e. you thought it was all in your head - turns out it was aliens... and this is where the game *starts*.

You very quickly find yourself back in the... house(?)... from the first game, and it's sort of business as usual from there, if anything in this game's universe can be considered "usual".

It's a little overwhelming to start with - a few wrong turns and you *will* get swamped with enemies - but you very quickly begin picking up the items you need to buff your attacks and take on the hordes.

Originally released on Xbox Live Indie Games, this PC port is very underwhelming - I'm not even sure if it's possible to play in fullscreen without some behind-the-scenes tinkering - but the game itself deserves a little more love than it's gotten so far. It's rough, but it's one hell of a trip.
