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
Killer is Dead is a nice game if you want fast action. The graphics and soundtrack are good too, I fell in love with comic graphics style which it presents, I think it is unique. The story is maybe odd at first but you will enjoy it later, I'm sure of that. About the gameplay, it is easy, Mondo's skills are useful to clear the game, in fact, you will enjoy cutting everything that can move. If you are in doubt about buy it, I absolutely recommend it to you, you won't regret it and you will enjoy it a lot, Worth it.
So what you've got here is another Suda51 game. If you're a fan of his work (NMH, Lolipop, Killer 7), then you'll probably also like this game. I very solid action, hack n slash that has good replay value. Controls and mechanics and I personally really enjoy the characters even though Mika is kind of an annoying schoolgirl archetype. Regarding Gigolo Mode, I know some people complain about for various reasons but I think it's okay because like a lot Suda stuff, it's silly, goofy, and shouldn't be taken seriously. Now the biggest problem with this game is the story. You could argue that it really doesn't have one but definitely it is confusing because I wasn't sure what actually happened on my 1st playthrough. That being said, buy this game because it is still very fun to play.
