"Fun, cool artstyle, easy enough to learn combat. The biggest complaint is the camera controls, otherwise this game would be a real gem."

This game is like Takashi Miike, Tarantino, and Frank Miller had a baby.
And that baby had a dream.
And that dream took some peyote and rode through the desert on a unicorn for a few days. Surviving on nothing but cactus juice, sake, and smooth jazz.
And just as it started to come down some rat basterd jacked it up with methamphetamines, clamped jumper cables and a car battery to it's nipples and forced it to develop a video game.
Then the baby woke up slightly dazed and spoke it's first words...
"Killer is dead" is all it said.

game is superawesome but port is terrible
to get it going had to:
- switch to windowed mode by looking up commandline parameter on web to prevent BSOD on crashes (ther's no option in settings)
- replace ini files with gpu settings to prevent crashing on 2nd stage (can't do in settings)
- manually edit .ini files to fix gamepad controls (can't do in settings)
- hex edit executable to prevent game getting stuck in infinite loop on 3rd stage
so, better wait until it's fixed or costs a dollar

Game Review

"Killer... Killer is Dead."

Killer is Dead is the latest title made by the iconic game creator SUDA51. In it you get to control the newest recruit of a reputable execution agency, Mondo Zappa, as he stalks and beheads a wide variety of criminals all across the world (sometimes even outside of it). As he settles into his new job, he also comes to terms with his own inner demons, balancing his talent for dispensing swift and brutal justice with his fleeting memories of a traumatic past, and peppering it all with his many sensual conquests.


Gameplay wise this is an extremely fun game. It is very simplistic and linear, yet you will have a good time slicing through large ammounts of enemies with your katana. Combat consists in lots of button smashing though, which after a while, gets repetitive, but you have a nice diversity of enemies too keep it "fresh". Combat which is in its majority through the game, insanely frenetic and challenging at times, being the boss fights the strongest attribute of it. You also have a nice selection of secondary weapons too once you unlock them through side-missions. Side-missions which are a nice way to offer some diversity to this game, since the main story missions are super linear, with a few collectables here and there, but excepting that, you will be walking around corridors most of the time. Some of these side missions are very fun, others are kinda lame after a while since they get extremely repetitive (gigolo missions), but they help giving the japanese vibe that this game possesses.
The game also as a good longetivity, I spent around 12 hours in order to complete it (side missions included).


I found the story to be very weak. It was insanely confusing and awkward with lots of bland dialog and boring cutscenes. The oscillating tone does not work well too, it varies from emotional scenes to lame humor very fast. It has some pretty cool characters though, which help this category of the game.

Graphics and Presentation

Graphically this game is marvellous to look at. Incredibly stylish cel-shadded graphics give life to this incredible world. Most of the levels are gorgeous and well designed. Some are kinda lame though. I remember that one of the chapters was so dark that I had many difficulties to navigate through it, even with the brightness maxed out. Also a minus the lack of graphical options in the menus, since there is only one option to choose that goes from low, medium, high, no other options whatsoever. Despite that, the menus are slick and easy to navigate, loading screens are fast, and the menus also have a nice array of music to complement them.


The music and sound effects in this game are great. I deeply enjoyed the soundtrack, and the sound effects all felt right too. Voice acting is kinda "meh", nothing special, the story and dialog surely dont help in this case.


Performance is great. I played on a considerably weak laptop and almost never dropped from the 30 fps cap on max settings. Unfortunately it is locked at the 30 fps mark but you can change that in the config files by following this guide - here. I also had to change the resolution in the config files since my native one was not available in-game, which is a big minus.


  • Great presentation and japanese vibe
  • Amazing graphics and creative art style
  • Fun and frenetic combat
  • Good longetivity

  • Hugely confusing, weak story
  • Extremely linear story missions
  • Lack of use of the PC technical potencial

My personal score: 7.0

If you like Hack 'n' Slash games and games with a japanese vibe, this is a game to get. I would advice to get in on a sale, even though the standard price is not very high, for the mixed experience you get its better to pay a little less. Nevertheless, you will have a good time playing this game, it feels good to slash through hordes of monsters and assassins.

Expected a hack-n-slash with unique visuals and lots of virtual babes because why not.

Got a broken Unreal 3 console port that needs tweaking with ini files (and the exe if you have a dual-core CPU), frame rate drops, random slow down during boss fights, broken animations and a frustrated game review.
