Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Dead Head Fred is played from a third-person perspective and offers impressive camera controls and visual effects -- especially for a handheld game. The only problem, however, is frequent loading screens that can take away from the fun. These load times gets better once Neuman ventures outside for the first time. Overall, this mature game is bizarre, funny, and fresh.
