If you have never played killer 7 , then you probably wont like this game. But for myself it was a nice treat to see the people behind one of my favorite games , come back with another strange and dark title. I did have my doubts at first. But when i shot my first demon and saw the familiar squirting of blood out of the demon, the same killer 7 style , i was hooked. this game is not meant for everybody. But for the people who are familiar with the style of odd grasshopper titles , this is just the comeback title we have been waiting for !!!!
I have to say that I didnt have alot of expectations when first having this sent out to me. The reviews had been middling and I have to say that an M rating is almost not enough, so dont let your young children anywhere near it.
The game mechanics are a bit on the unpolished side, think resident evil 4/5 except clunky. There are also some game mechanics that the creators expect you to think of yourself, not giving tutorials for everything (which I liked).
Reguardless of the games flaws if you are into crude subtext and content matter mixed with guns, babes, and plenty of gore, then this game is for you. The storyline while light, was entertaining. I can honestly say that I would consider myself a little less whole without playing through this laugh riot atleast once.
The game IS at least watchable, awesome commentary from Garcia, funny quips, decent take on the whole Dante's Inferno genre. I suppose I was more taken into the hype around it.. the feel of the game was classic (thanks to music by none other than Akira Yamaoka).. The play however was lacking just a droll walk, aim, shoot. No true substance just Iconic and reminiscent of a grind house flick, without any delivery.
