As the monsters are killed, more doors to new areas are unlocked. The combat uses controls, in which movement is controlled by one thumbstick or set of keys, and firing weapons is controlled by the other thumbstick or another set of keys. The player fights the monsters using a variety of projectile weapons, and can purchase additional weapons. Monsters can also be killed by cutting into them with the saw blade. To finish off any of the 100 monsters, the player must perform a quick mini-game, which unlocks a death animation unique to each monster. Failing the mini-game will result in damage to Ash and the monster will regain some life.

I had reservations with Hell Yeah! To begin with as it seemed to be yet another PSN game that placed style over substance, and while that is true to a degree there is a lot of fun in the simple gameplay and if you stick with it past 30 minutes you'll become mildly addicted. You play as Ash, a dead rabbit burning in hell who breaks out to get revenge on a bunch of monsters, or something, for some ridiculous reason involving scandalous photos of him being posted on the hell-ternet or something. It's rather hard to follow but anyone can appreciate the sheer imagination and creativity on display here. Your weapons are a bunch of guns and a giant wheel you can use to break through between platforms.
Both can be customized as well as Ash's head with a series of hats. The levels are the usual sort for such a game, featuring lava, casinos, space etc. But they are all colorful and various unlockable extras will keep you amused for the duration.
There are 12 trophies to unlock, though I suspect there might be some DLC made available in the future. If so, then Arkedo need to patch an annoying bug. The game froze up on me about 5 times, which required resetting the PS3. Otherwise, a fun, if far from classic video game with an occasionally fun soundtrack.
