Killer is Dead is a typical Suda51 game. Abstract, over the top and very Japanese but also fun as hell. It's obvious it's a niche type of game and only small percent of players will find it attractive but those who do will remember this adventure for a long time. It is hard to recommend this title though, as it is very specific. If you heard of Suda51 there might be a chance you will like it but if this studio if completely unknown to you perhaps keep away from this one. You may miss out but on the other hand, the game may appear to bizarre to you.
While not necessarily the deepest or most complex action game, KiD absolutely oozes style and is still satisfying to play. Scoring system and secrets give it a fair bit of replayability, and the occasional minigame helps break up the action every so often. Fighting regular enemies has a habit of becoming somewhat repetitive, but boss fights are absolutely excellent. Maybe not the best of its kind, but certainly up there and is definitely worth playing.
I got the game back in 2015, and I waited around to play it, but once I really got into the meat of the game I was surprised by how good it actually was, I'd compare it to Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance or DMC, the gameplay is solid, you're rewarded for playing well and using a parry ability, the advancement system is very nice as well you eventually earn 4 sidearm weapons to go along with your main sword, and you can upgrade both those, and your health and blood, blood being a meter for a special attack that can be used to finish off a dazed large enemy or just instantly kill smaller ones. The art style is unique, some people say they dislike it, I myself am a fan. Overall I was just extremely shocked at how good the game was, I can't believe it took me so long to actually get around to finishing it, getting 100% completion + all achievements took me about 23 hours, so it's not an insanely long game, but the replay-ability is definitely there the combat is just superb.
I never heard of SUDA51 before, so this game took me by surprise. Even the title seemed ridiculous, but it was part of a bundle, so whatever. Then i actually tried it. I honestly have no idea what i saw, but i did like it. The whole thing is...well, others might say stylish, i will stay with bizarre, but in a good way. Oh yeah, and thankfully fighting is easier then it looks. Once you get into it, it's a lot of fun :)
There are two types of games, suda51 games and the rest, Killer is Dead is a port of the PS cult classic to the PC plus the additional DLC modes which makes this one a great deal, specially if you missed this one as suda games are sometimes hard to get on the market (at reasonable prices). Don't miss out and buy this one already!. Game Highlights: * Stylish Graphics * Easy control scheme * Fun story * Just the right mix of randomness
