I'm not the type of person who hates on games.
But this is simply horrible. This is the type of game why i got gamefly i would had seriously broken my tv and xbox because its that bad.
Generic Fighting Mechanics
Wanna be complex story line
and a waste of general time
If i could give this game something lower then a one trust me i would.
Try this u hack N slashers! This reminds me of Shadows of the Damned! That game was great and so is this one! Why such a low score? I don't necessarily like sudo games except Shadows! This game was such a LSDtrip and I loved it! I hit the keep button for 17$!
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.
