Story makes no sense even by crazy japanese standards on how ridiculous japanese games can be. tries to be an open world game but its really just a super linear mission based game, with some okay-ish control scheme and pretty nice graphics. just like ESCAPE DEAD ISLAND achievements are not very difficult. and honestly this game needs to come down in price.
Killer is Dead is decent as an action game. It's similar in play to games such as Devil May Cry or Ninja Gaiden...you're a dude that's put in various levels killing a whole lot of baddies. It's Suda-51 so you know what you're getting here.
The game itself isn't bad, I would describe it as serviceable. A few issues with screen tearing, wonky camera, and collision detection persist throughout the game, but overall...serviceable. It looks great though, the art style works very well here.
The best thing about Killer is Dead is that it doesn't overstay its welcome. I completed the game in around 3.5 hours, but I skipped about 95% of the cutscenes. For good reason as the story in the game is seedy and not flattering towards women. Example: Outside of the main story missions, there are "Gigolo" Missions in which you essentially gawk at a half naked female. Blech, no thanks.
If you're willing to skip the story and play the game, I'd recommend giving this one a shot. It's a few hours of fun, but limit your expectation.
