At its core, Stay Dead Evolution is a 'round beat'em up' like Street Fighter with elements taken from rhythm games.
The brand new idea behind Stay Dead Evolution is to have a real time interaction inside a cinematographic scene, using the main character as if he would be a video-game character.
Stay Dead is the union of movies and video-games. Finally, the sound and graphic quality of a movie joins effectively the interaction of a next generation video-game, creating a unique and involving game experience.
Using the video footage is one aspect of Stay Dead Evolution, but it's not the most important. Our focus is to let the player feels like using the main character in an actual movie, a movie with a real montage and a proper grammar.
Stay Dead Evolution is born refining Stay Dead, a game that in 2012 was well received by public and critique.
Even if the graphic is entirely shot in real life, you can move your character with a great degree of freedom and you can perform more than 100 different techniques distributed in 5 stages.
Use all the classic moves of the fighting games, just watch the result of your stunts with a never-seen-before spectacularity that just a real life shot with a cinematographic direction can provide.

Stay Dead Evolution is a fighting game with a different and cool art style that you have to beat up the enemies to advance in the campaign. I expected it to have better graphics, sounds and mainly the gameplay, which was not user friendly. The game is a newer version of Stay Dead, which for me, was very great, so the developers tried to make this one even better, but they managed to screw it up. I recommend this to the people who have played the original game first, but I think that anyway the won't enjoy this game as well as the first one. The developers really let me down.
In Stay Dead Evolution, basically what you need to do is press the correct button sequence to overcome your enemy. Over time the difficulty increases, and the time to push the buttons become shorter. For me, this game is not the most innovative in the world, in fact, far from it. The game has a old look as if it had been done for the past generation, the graphics leave much to be desired and the sound effects too. Although the graphics are not the strong point, the game is really fun and can hold the player for a long time in a fight which no doubt is due to the degree of difficulty that increases quite becoming challenging. I recommend this game for people who like this type of game that looks like a copy of mortal kombat, for surely the players will be entertained for several hours.
Stay Dead Evolution is a really, really unique game. Yes, it's a sort of arcade round beat’em up, of course, but isn't only this. It's a renewed laser game in full motion video that reminds the 80's and early 90's, but, we can say, even something more. The gameplay is based on quick time events, like other games, but in Stay Dead Evolution you can choose nearly freely to attack in easier or more difficult ways with variuos combos, or to defend yourself: you're not tied to a single option. In fact, it’is very important that you take and keep the rhythm of the battle in order to win, because this is the only way to beat the foes and arrive to the end of your struggle, expecially at the higher levels of difficulty. We can say that Stay Dead Evolution could seem old in a lot of aspects of its presentation, but is really new in the way the past experiences are re-mixed together in an intense, unique really interactive movie-game. So, trust me: maybe Stay Dead Evolution won't be the best beat’em up you will play, but it's really entertaining and really worths the small price you will pay for it.
