Weak

Fundamentally weak game

OK, I'm male, and I have a low brow sense of humor. I thought this would be full of stupid fratboy giggles, and I was fine with that - if I'll be honest I was kinda looking forward to it. However this is pure misogyny, and got very uncomfortable, very quickly. It's certainly worthy of it's M rating... the dialogue in this game is not suitable for impressionable ears. However...

...the main problem I have with this game is that it's just not very good. While the graphics are bright and colorful, they are hardly pushing the envelope of what the PS3 can do. The controls however are hideous, combos make little or no sense, and it resorted almost instantly to button mashing. Gameplay essentially is walk a bit, fight a group of enemies to clear the area, wash-rinse-feel_dirty_inside-repeat. It's a one trick pony of a game, and that one trick gets boring very quickly.

So, if you are looking for some cheap titillation, there are better avenues for that than here. If you are looking for a good game, you've definitely come to the wrong place.

This game's on fire. I went to a midnight release for this game prior to "day" sale. I went in getting exactly what I expected on arriving home. Classic Slice and dice beat em' up style like the good old days with new implemented "god of war" button combo clips adds a feel of adrenaline based action. For anyone taking this game serious, this isn't for you AT ALL. The comedy bits make each event worth playing through a second time. Unlockables throughout keep you going to try and do your best each time, while leader boards do little more then embarrass those attempts it's still worth trying for a good score. Overall this is basically an action rpg type, with rpg being the upgrades putting more weight in the action department. If you enjoy zombies and hot ladies this game can be enjoyed regardless of your player skill. However the lack of detail on controls annoyed me with it's in game options of detail and no manual left me wanting something as far as art work or something not just a Game case. So if you enjoy comedy this game is also just for you, I spent many times laughing at the quirky humor put into this game. A lot of love and care was added into this to please people of all areas but this game i felt was definitely more for the fans rather then those looking for 100% playability and difficulty with roughly 6-10 hour time game play they may find it cheap. Costumes are an aesthetic addition but a nice touch considering the game itself revolves around perv jokes. 9/10 in my book and worth getting at midnight.

Graphics are no good (except for character models, especially Juliet, for some reason, she suffers no graphical glitches)

Story is everything you expect it to be. No real complaints there, it is what it is. If you even know of this game, you know what I'm talking about.

Gameplay is weak. It's just not fluid. Kinda clunky, kinda stiff but some good ideas I suppose.

It's nice and short, which is great unless you actually buy this. DO NOT BUY THIS. Renting is okay.

It's funny, the Voice acting is actually pretty good. But it's not enough to make the game good.

The game gets annoying and frustrating at times. It's not unforgiving or hard, but when certain parts are more annoying than others, it's hard to forgive a game that's just not that good or fun to play anyway. It's easier just to shut it off and send it back.

If you know of this game, you've probably played Killer 7, or Shadows of the Damned and I can tell you that this game is not as good as those, and Killer 7 is still the best of the three.

The game has replay value in the sense that there's incentives to play it again, but none of them are "The game is good and fun to play."
