Killer is Dead ist ein überraschend gutes Japano-Action Spiel.

Man spielt Mondo. Einen jungen Mann, welcher seine Erinnerung verloren hat, jedoch immer wieder von skurrilen Alpträumen heimgesucht wird. Er schließt sich am Anfang einer Organisation an, welche Auftragsmorde begeht und wird einer ihrer Vollstrecker. Im Laufe des Spiels baut sich eine sehr spannende Story rund um den Protagonisten auf und besonders das Ende konnte mich begeistern.

Das Spiel besticht durch einen sehr, sehr gut umgesetzten Grafikstil, welcher an viele Animes erinnert. Auch viele Anime-Klischees sind hier vorhanden wie z.B riesige Blutfontänen, halbnackte japanische Mädchen mit viel zu viel Holz vor der Hütte und total abgedrehte Gegner. Das Gegnerdesign ist sehr abwechslungsreich und hat mir mit am besten an diesem Spiel gefallen.

Man hat immer eine Hauptmission, welche einen in der Story weiterbringt und die es zu erledigen gilt, bevor man neue Storymissionen freischalten kann. Nebenbei gibt es einige Nebenmissionen und Herausforderungen zu erledigen, welche sehr abwechslungsreich und witzig gestaltet sind. In manchen Missionen muss man ,,Tontaubenschießen'' und in anderen hat man das Ziel einer Frau, welche man datet, möglichst lange durch eine Röntgenbrille auf die Unterwäsche zu glotzen, ohne dass sie es bemerkt. Total durchgeknallt und ungemein spassig.

Top:
- Sehr guter Japano-Animestil
- Abwechslungsreiche Haupt- und Nebenmissionen
- Sehr viel Humor
- Übertrieben und klischeehaft brutal. Man kommt sich fast vor wie in den Anime-Zwischensequenzen der Kill Bill Filme
- Angemessene Spielzeit für solch eine Art von Spiel
- Sehr, sehr geiles Gegnerdesign, was keine Wünsche übrig lässt und den Spieler zum Teil echt nur noch: ,,WTF'' denken lässt. Dazu gehören z.B Spinnen mit Menschengesichtern auf dem Rücken oder (sic!) besessene Dämonenzüge, welche angepisst darüber sind, dass sie ausrangiert wurden.
- Viele Möglichkeiten mit dem Charakter zu kämpfen
- Man kann den Protagonisten skillen und seine Fähigkeiten ausbauen
- Symphatische Nebencharaktere und glaubhafte Bossgegner
- Fesselnde (aber echt kranke) Story
- Japanische und Englische Synchronisation. Spielt man das Spiel auf Japanisch kommt wirkliches Anime-Feeling auf.

Flop:
- Synchronisation ist nicht immer ganz lippensynchron
- Seltene Bugs, welche einen schonmal dazu zwingen eine Mission neu zu starten. Dazu muss ich aber sagen, dass mir das nur in den kurzen Nebenmissionen passiert ist.

Fazit:
Killer is Dead ist ein wirklich einzigartiges und gutes Anime-Actionspiel mit einer guten Story, viel Abwechslung, super Charakteren und Gegnern und schafft es, über einen langen Zeitraum zu unterhalten. Man hat viel zum Freischalten und kann in den Missionen immer bessere Endergebnisse erzielen, so dass ein gewisser Wiederspielwert vorhanden ist. Fans von Animes oder gepflegten, brutalen Slasher-Spielen sind bei Killer is Dead gut aufgehoben. Ich kann es nur empfehlen.

First off, let me preface this review by saying that this game is rather short and if you wanna play it on a computer with a dual core processor you are ♥♥♥♥ out of luck. However, if you can run this game, it is well worth your time and money despite these two problems.

Be sure to see the guide as well on getting this game to run up to snuff, unless you're one of those people who think a game is enhanced by a subpar framerate.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=262696032

tl;dr? Get this game if you're into the hack and slash genre even slightly, enjoy a moderate amount of difficulty, or appreciate a unique visual style in a video game. (Seriously, some of the frames in some of the cutscenes in this game are wallpaper worthy.)

Killer is Dead is one of the most unique games I have ever played. Perhaps not mechanically; after all, this is at it's core a hack and slash game and it does have many tropes of the genre such as a grading system and guarding/dodging mechanics. As for the mechanics themselves, they're actually very solid if a bit overly simplistic to those who are used to DMC levels of depth. However, everything about it otherwise, from it's beautiful visual style that's reminiscent of 70's esque color pallettes, character, and outdoor design gives this game loads of personality and unique identity among others in the genre. I will forever remember this game because of how unique it is.

Oh, and the soundtrack is a beautiful blend of electronic ambient and classical music. Often very dreamlike, much like the game itself.

This game is not without it's problems though. Sometimes, the camera may not zoom out enough to give you vital information on the next enemy telegraph, leading to mild frustration at times. You will hate the gigolo missions not because they're bad (They lack a lot of depth, though.) but because the people you date will bother you in the middle of a mission to remind you that there are, in fact, gigolo missions and the girls want to see you before their mission gets locked off until you complete a few other missions. A minor inconvenience, of course. But I am of the personal belief that side missions should not detract at all from a main campaign and should be able to be played at your own leisure. I assure you, this is said in the interest of informing about an unsatisfactory gameplay mechanic, not in regard of a controversial subject at the time of this review that I don't want to touch with a 1,000,000 foot pole because I honestly, really, could not give less of a ♥♥♥♥ if I tried, since said subject does not detract from a game for me at all. I only offhandedly mention it because some people do care and they should know it is in the game. There isn't a lot of enemy variety in this game either.

However, this game is well worth your time and money, and I would even go as far as to say that it is a must own if you want to experience a game that is unlike most you've played. Expect challenge.

Untill they fix the dual core bug this game will stop working on level 3. Shame because it looks like it could be fun but currently its unplayable for some.

Initial impression: Oct, 25

Samurai Champloo/Cowboy Bebop directed by Quentin Tarantino on LSD with the visual style of windwaker

I feel like this game might be trying to parody or mock other japanese video games or some injoke I don't get.
Combat is unforgiving, you must be a fast learner.

Not many grapical options, only about 4-5 resolutions ot choose from.

+ The combat system is fun and easy to learn for any level of gamer.
+ The game oozes style thanks to the graphics.
+ The story is typical Suda51 meaning it's over the top, hysterical, and even dark. Goes wherever it feels like going which is a nice change of pace when compared to a lot of other game stories that keep with one tone.

- Camera can be a bit finnicky with effects obscuring what you're doing in combat.
- The gun enemies can be a pain with the gun mechanics not really being all that great.

It doesn't matter if you target is in USA, Europe, China or even The moon mondo can kill 'em all. this video game has a weird story but it has a great characters, great voices acting and the most important thing about this game is the gameplay yeah is AWESOME and easy to interact, this video game has beside the main mission has side quest missions, that could help you to progress in this game of course if you want to become a killing machine, about the graphics are so amazing this game use cel shading technique and is just wonderful to see that, but there are some things that i didn't like it such as this game has just only 3 graphic options vsync, resolution and graphic performance "developer team you could do better" and the another one is this game is too short really short

in conclusion if you like this game genres (hack and slash) you will enjoy this game I really recommended.
by the way if you have Intel core 2 duo or similar this game has a glitch in the chapter 3 so I recommended to play this game with a core i5 or better. I hope this little review may help you to decide if you buy this game or not

Just finished this game and I feel like I need to add a review that is not based on glitches or bugs.

What I expected was either a super-grotesque, "wtf is this..." game that keeps me entertained with its absurdness; or one with a genuinely interesting noir-style story (with a soundtrack from Akira Yamaoka on top of that!). However, neither of these describe the game.
It certainly has many "wtf"-moments, and at the beginning it even seems like it would deliver both of these expectations instead of just one. The art style is superb, the mood combined with the OST fascinating and yet you keep wondering "what the hell is just happening?". However, it just doesn't develop at all from that point on.

The first and probably the main problem is the gameplay. Most of the time you have to fight your way through maybe 10 different types of enemies in total. Almost all of them can easily be defeated by stupid button smashing of your standard attack with some evasions thrown in at random. There is a mechanic to press your evasion button just as enemies attack to counter them with a "smash x!"-multiattack, but the cue and time window for these is so small that I found myself ignoring it completely and just pressing the evasion whenever I felt like it. Many times you even trigger the event with this playstyle. Enemies in the air can only be killed with ranged combat, which basically means holding a single button down for 10+ seconds while aiming at them. In the end, every stage just felt like mindless button smashing to victory. And believe me, the stages sometimes feel like an eternity. There is absolutely nothing interesting happening within them at all. Defeat five enemies, go to the next room, defeat ten enemies, go to the next room, repeat until boss fight starts.
While the bosses all have different patterns how to defeat them, they are not that much fun either. The whole combat system is just too simplistic to have any entertainment value.

Apart from the main missions there is also the possibility to do sidemissions at any point: These are either more of the dull combat system (challenges for time or similar stuff) or the absolutely ridiculous "Gigolo Missions". I'm not kidding right now: In each of these missions, you sit somewhere with a woman and have to look at their body without them noticing. They say like 5 phrases again and again and either look at you or awkwardly somewhere else. While they look away, you stare at their breasts or legs and gain "guts". You also have glasses that let you see these women in underwear and what kind of presents they like, which further increases these guts. Once you have enough, you can give them a present, ultimately getting them into bed that way (and getting a new weapon). I have absolutely no idea what the developers of this game were thinking implementing this. It's the most awkward and stupid thing I've ever seen in any game, even the gameplay during that is ridiculously monotone. Seeing this feels like an insult.

So, what's left? Ah right, the story. Before and after each mission, we get sequences usually between five and ten minutes. These are most of the time completely based on the mission at hand, but all refer somehow to the moon that makes the "mysterious main theme". However, the story isn't really developing in any way. Most of the time there are just a few sentences that leave more questions than they answer. Not in a good "put the pieces together" way though. Some missions are also dream sequences from the main character which seem to point to personal conflicts of him, but they are delivered so flat that there's absolutely no emotional impact at all.
In the end, it feels like the writers just added everything that came into their mind on a whim. The story development is minmal at best and can be summarized with a few sentences. Nevertheless it always feels like the story wants to be poetic and open to interpretation, which makes this even worse. There's even a great story twist that didn't feel like a twist at all due to the way the story is delivered. And while there are many "wtf" moments, including unicorns, vampires, aliens, ghosts and whatnot, the game takes itself too serious to be enjoyable in that way.

Summary: Don't waste your time on this. It looks cool, that's about everything good there is to say.

This straightforward hack and slash game is perfect for players who loves performing special attacks that are triggered by perfect blocks, perfect dodges, or by simply just maintaining a high hit count. The only downside is some of the enemies and bosses can only be efficiently fought with ranged attacks, so prioritize on upgrading the subweapons and the blood meter as early as possible.

I only recommend this game if you have good computer. It has a problem with dual cores and it seems the developers have no intent to fix this problem. Your can't get past any part of the game where you talk on a phone, it will endlessly load.

Aside from that it is an awesomme game, I played this on ps3 when it first came out, but I regret purchasing this on steam and supporting developers who ignore the community.

Make sure you have a quad core and a good amount of memory if your interested in purchasing.

If you like Suda51 games get it just know what your getting before you purchase. I have to wait to play as I have to upgrade my computer even though I can run it on the highest setting.

Great game but bad port.

Suda51 is the best developer EVER, these games are the true argument that videogames can be an artform and I'm usually totally against that.

Surreal experiences coupled with a mix of good (Liam O'Brian AND Patrick Seitz!? earsex holy ♥♥♥♥) and bad voice acting, probably on purpose, with repetitive but not monotonous combat

while this game is AMAZING, Killer7 is one of the best games ever made and I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone and everyone, hopefully one day it might come to steam so that the perfect platform can have the perfect game without needing a "dolphin" :)

unlocking your framerate WILL break the game. the game is not even rendered in a style that anything higher than 30 fps would be all that flattering to anyways so just don't do it!!

that out of the way ill make this review simple: if you like Suda 51, Grasshopper, innovative hack n' slash games, high risk/reward combat, and/or this game even looks remotely interesting to you, i can just about guarantee that you'll have a great time with it. if you don't like those things, this game will do nothing to change your mind, but you probably wouldn't even be looking at this if you didn't like at least SOME of those things, in which case, you should probably give it a shot.

btw, while the game does explain some things to you as far as combat goes, there are some things that are not quite apparent at first, like the fact that you can do an instant execution on enemies that are not only stunned but also those who are mid-attack, unaware, and those a sufficient enough distance away from mondo to be considered unaware. you can chain these insta-kills together as well to take out entire mobs instantly, and this is the only way to survive on nightmare difficulty. the importance of keeping the combo meter going as well cannot be overstated - it increases the speed and strength of your attacks, and has various other effects as you climb higher into the numbers, like a blood multiplier which allows you to pull off more executions.

Developers have not fixed a game breaking bug they have known about since June, and I cannot progress beyond episode 3 (which is only about 10 minutes into the game) because a door won't close.

Do not buy this game.

Shame on you, Deep Silver.

I really want to like this game, but unfortunetly there is a bug on mission 3 which traps you in an endless loading situation. No bug fixes have been issued by the company or the community yet, this issue does not effect everybody but it is still fairly commo so BUYER BEWARE.

From reading the forums, it seems to be an issue with dual core systems but they're not entirely sure...
