Not bad game just bad controls

Kinda enjoyed the game to be honest with you however I couldnt stand the control issues. Aiming was bad, hit detection was awful and there are just some really really frustrating parts.... like your GF chasing after you as you try to kill demons but if shs kisses you die WHAT?!

Other than that the story had me interested enough but I just wasnt comitted to finishing the game before returning it.

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.

Enjoy my fellow deviants, enjoy.
