Su faceta hack and slash es simple poco profunda pero bien lograda lamentablemente como port que es, debes de jugarlo con mando

La historia es un tanto rara, no es difícil de seguir pero aun así encuentras partes con poco sentido argumental, también deja muchos huecos que me supongo están pensados para una 2 parte pero es que el juego ya tiene algo de tiempo y hasta la fecha dudo que se vea una continuación

Los gráficos son muy buenos no por ser realistas o detallistas, si no por el acabado de anime/manga que tienen, cumplen su objetivo perfectamente de sentirte en un manga o anime.

este juego es un port por lo que en gráficos solo contaras con un solo selector de calidad, con posibilidad de ponerlo a 1080p pero bloqueado a 30fps, (aunque se puede desbloquear a 60fps tendrás que arreglar manualmente algunas animaciones un trabajo realmente molesto mejor dejarlo a sus 30fps) personalmente considero una experiencia única configurar el juego a 4k ya sea con Gedosato o Nvidia DSR obtendrás una calidad y claridad de imagen increíble el juego luce realmente bien a esa resolución y como realmente pide poco no creo que sea problema en cuanto rendimiento

Unicornios, ligues, mucha sangre, un diseño de niveles bastante peculiar y una historia de la mas raras que se recuerdan.
En definitiva, un hack&slash con un sistema de combos y mejoras muy recomendable con varios desafíos y un apartado gráfico único. Muy recomendable

Es un señor JUEGAZO con mayusculas, le compre por que me encanto No More Heroes y este le supera con mucho, tiene de todo y si te gustan las buenas historias, el no parar de asesinar, el gore y las idas de olla sin sentido es una pasada de juego.

Las pegas las tengo muy claras:

- ESTE JUEGO ES UN PORT MALO.

Si tienes un procesador core duo NO COMPRES EL JUEGO, esta plagado de bugs que solo se solucionan teniendo mínimo un quad core según leí por internet, a mi cuando me salta un bug de los que no te dejan avanzar, por que no se abren puertas o cosas asi... me toca pasar el save a otro pc y pasar ese cacho y luego volver... Es pura ♥♥♥♥♥♥ en cuanto a programacion y mantenimiento, ya que se cuentan por miles los que sufren los bugs y no sacan actualizaciones, pero el juego es muy bueno, y si cuentas con un buen pc lo vas a aprovechar bien.

El juego 10/10
El juego funcionando... 2/10..

Killer is Dead es un Hack n' Slash en tercera persona único.

En él, seremos Mondo Zappa, nuevo integrante de una agencia llamada "Killer is Dead" que se dedica a asesinar gente (o cualquier cosa) por dinero.

Gracias a la excusa de asesinar a sujetos en concreto, nos encontramos ante un Hack n' Slash con enemigos y escenarios únicos por cada capítulo (ya que cada uno de nuestros objetivos estará en distintas partes del mundo. Incluso en la Luna) y un final boss al final de este.

En lo que a jugabilidad se refiere, sólo podremos manejar a Mondo que irá equipado con una Katana que funciona mediante sangre que conseguiremos al acabar con nuestros enemigos (esta sangre nos permite hacer cosas como recuperar vida o ejecutar a nuestros enemigos al instante) y un cyber-brazo con hasta 4 funciones distintas (que le da al juego un toque FPS en tercera persona). En mi opinión, una buena mezcla de armas y géneros.

También podremos mejor a Mondo mediante nuevas habilidades o mejoras de estas, que se compran con las gemas que suelten nuestros enemigos.

Gráficamente, es espectacular. El juego luce tremendo con unos gráficos cel-shaded con muchísimo contraste que impresiona al principio y los juegos de luz y sombra en algunas partes del juego son alucinantes. Lamentablemente, el juego está limitado a 30 FPS base, pero con unas pequeñas modificaciones, podemos hacerlo correr a más de 60 FPS y de manera fluidísima.

El sonido, bueno. Normalito, algún que otro theme destacable pero nada más. Las voces en japonés, bastante bien (las inglesas no las he escuchado).

El mayor punto flaco de Killer is Dead es su duración, que si vamos de cabeza a por la historia principal, nos podemos fundir los 12 capítulos en 2 o incluso 1 día. Afortunadamente, el juego viene cargadito de misiones secundarias y logros además de las originales "Misiones Gigoló", en las que tendremos que seducir a una chica a base de miradas y regalos para llevárnoslas al huerto.

En resumidas cuentas, otro buen juego de Suda51 lleno de su estilo único, buenos bosses y detalles.

Muy recomendado.

(Hacen falta más juegos de Suda51 en Steam. Me los compraba todos.)

Te follas japonesas kawaiis, 10/10

Bueno que tengo que decir de este juego, que es divertidisimo desde que empiezas a jugarlo, es algo nuevo en cuanto a diseño, locura (ya que es el juego donde he dicho mas WTF que nunca) Y en plan locura y escenas que realmente te quedas así.
En cuanto a jugabilidad había leido que era un poco mala y tal, pero para mi no he tenido ningún problema, si has jugado algún hack & slash antes esté no estan dificil ya que ni tiene combos ni nada.
Los personajes son geniales todos, hasta los enemigos donde casi todos los enemigos "boss" son una bizarrada que en serio te quedas con cara flipando y partiendote de risa de que ♥♥♥♥ mente enferma ha podido llegar a crear eso.

Hay escenas que no sabes muy bien que es y te desorienta bastante de la historia cosa que esta genial y además están muy bien ambientadas y hechas.

Lo de tener que ir buscando por todos los rincones chicas a las cuales luego al encontrar desbloqueas misiones secundarias (que por cierto hay muchas aunque te acabes el juego) Con lo cual le da algo de vida y no sólo esta la historia principal.

En cuanto a duración está bien, y en cuanto a manejo si no es lo tuyo este tipo de juegos lo coges rapido (aunque en alguna ocasión sobretodo al principio puede llegar a desesperarte, pero es poco) Le coges el tranquillo a la primera, cosa que agradezco ya que este estilo de juegos me gustan pero que no sean demasiado complicados ya que no estoy acostumbrado.

En resumen, si quieres pasar unas risas, ver chicas en ropa interior y mientras hablas con ellas mirarle las tetas mientras no se enteran para que te suba la sangre a la cabeza (aunque debería ser a otro sitio) Este es tu juego jajaja

When Killer is Dead was released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2013, it made waves for its striking art style and controversial gigolo side missions, but PC gamers didn’t want to sit idly by while they missed out on Suda 51’s latest surreal experience. Thus, Deep Silver and Kadokawa Games have teamed up to bring the sword swinging hack and slasher to Steam at an affordable, and very reasonable price. With even more refined visuals, keyboard and mouse controls, and a new difficulty mode, considering this is a new territory for the developer, they seem to have made out very well, all things considered.Killer is Dead stars an executioner named Mondo Zappa who has recently become a major cog at Bryan’s Executioner Office. The Executioner Office is the country’s first line of defense, banked on tax dollars and serving the state. Well, in theory at least, as most of its clients are individual citizens who come to the firm with a unique problem. There’s the man with a giant spider monster terrorizing his house, a musician who had her ears stolen and a woman in crisis from the dark side of the moon just to name a few. There’s never a job the office doesn’t take, and while Mondo is sent out on the bulk of them, he has assistance in the form of Bryan, Vivienne and Mika. Vivienne is a femme fatale with a dozen arms that shoot out of her back and fire guns, Bryan is the head of the operation who is one cybernetic implant away from becoming a robot and Mika is a young runaway that Mondo takes in because she’s good at making soft-boiled eggs. All the characters in the game are interesting, from the major players to the bit ones, with Bryan a standout outside of the protagonist. His cryptic messages and nonchalance helps elevate the surrealism of the situations.I’d go deeper into the plot, but find that difficult for two reasons: it would spoil the fun of unraveling the story and it’s incredibly abstract and difficult to put into words. Killer is Dead has a narrative that plops you into the middle of a mysterious world playing as a character you know little about. It takes place in the distant future as evidenced by Mondo’s cybernetic arm and the moon being inhabited. Indeed, the cover art is not just for show and the moon plays a significant part in the game. As the plot progresses, more is revealed about the characters and just what the hell is happening, rewarding those who stick with it and attempt to piece it all together. Matching the idiosyncrasy of the plot are the bizarre level designs. There’s a stage reminiscent of an M.C. Escher painting as imagined by Lewis Carroll, complete with stairs on the walls, and one that takes place in a thousand-story building. This is a game that literally goes straight to the moon within the first few hours, so except anything and everything. The unique setting of areas helps the game from feeling repetitive, although they aren’t always the most inspired, with more indoor corridors than I would have liked. The boss designs are some of the strangest in recent memories, rivaling even the Slurm Queen in DmC. The gameplay is that of a hack and slash and somewhat reminiscent of Devil May Cry. Mondo’s main weapon is his beloved katana, Gekkou, which absorbs blood and boosts his fighting ability. Blood can be used for multiple things, the most notable being the “Adrenaline Burst.” An enemy can be cut in half (usually right down the middle) upon being stunned, destroying them in one hit. The most important use of blood is to grant the ability to harness the power of Mondo’s cybernetic left arm, which is called the “Musselback.” Multiple (some unlockable) sub-weapons can be loaded into the Musselback, including the Bullet Shot, Freeze Shooter and Drill. The Bullet Shot is basically a gun and can be charged for more damage, the Freeze Shooter fires frozen bullets to slow enemies down and the Drill is a giant drill. The Bullet Shot is the most practical out of the three, although each has its own advantage.Most of the time, however, expect to be hacking and slashing. Most of the action happens by the way of the square button, which creates lighting quick combos. Holding down the same button does a circular “Moon Slash,” while hitting triangle breaks guard. On the defensive side of things, holding circle brings Mondo into a guard, while tapping it makes him dodge. If an attack is successfully dodged, it brings up a prompt to counter-attack, which allows the enemy to be sliced and diced in slow-motion. While it’s a wholly satisfying combat system, it does feel a bit outdated after the smoothness of both DmC and Metal Gear Rising.Perhaps the most shocking feature about the game is that of the “Gigolo Missions,” which is surprising in a game that has a character sprout legs out of her back and crawl around the ceiling. These are mini-games that can be completed in-between missions, with the ultimate goal being to seduce a woman for pleasure and weapons. Every mission has Mondo approach an attractive woman and begin seducing her the “Gigolo Vision” and sneaking a peak of her private areas when she’s not looking. You can look at her face too, but as the tutorial states, “staring at her face won’t increase your Guts, go for the sexy shots!” Mondo can restore the mood by looking in her eyes, however, which is necessary as she’ll ditch you if it cools off enough. Once you’ve gained enough guts by staring at her, you give her presents until she falls in love with you and gives you a weapon. It’s hard to predict how people will react to this mode, and I’m not touching that with a ten foot poll, but it’s surprisingly entertaining and all in good fun.It’s surprising Killer is Dead has received a PC port, especially considering we’ve only seen one other game from Grasshopper Manufacture breech the open ended barrier. Unfortunately, Nightmare Edition is a little below expectations. There’s a lack of options when it comes to visuals as it’s summed up in a single quality meter ranging from high to low. That’s not the concerning matter – it’s actually more stunning a nine month old console port of this caliber had any graphical selections at all – but it’s the five supported resolutions and limited frame rate that’s worrisome. It’s only disappointing because the game actually supports more than 30fps and any resolution possible, but to unlock these, players will have to go into ini file and manually change the settings themselves. Besides that, though, the Killer is Dead really shines on PC, showcasing the studio’s beautiful artwork.Killer is Dead is not everybody’s cup of tea. It’s avant-garde, darkly humorous, hyper-violent and different from most every game out there. It’s like the weirdness of Killer 7, Lollipop Chainsaw, Anarchy Reigns and Catherine rolled into one game, but narratively removed from anything that’s come before it. Out of the box, the Nightmare Edition is a baffling package.

Killer is Dead: Nightmare Edition is a crazy hack-n-slash action game that feels similar to games like Devil May Cry 4 (and probably others in the series, which I have not played), in terms of gameplay. But, that's pretty much where the similarities end - KiD: Nightmare is a bat-crap crazy game - which has unique characters, unique look for a cel-shaded games, strange levels, surreal elements that feel right out of a David Lynch film, an over-the-top ridiculous story + plot, satire elements, 4th-wall breaking elements, and God knows what else. That certainly isn't everything, as this is the strangest + most unique game that I've played since Deadly Premonition. Fortunately for us PC gamers, this game actually received a decent PC port...unlike Deadly Premonition.

Without giving away too much on the story...well, it goes something like this: Mondo, who also has one bionic arm, works for an agency that assassinates people + does odd jobs. The story is just utterly over-the-top and ridiculous from there so I'll just leave it at that, plot-wise. The game is often very cryptic, not giving you everything in dialogue + in a straight-forward manner. Many of it, is in the visuals. Even if you cannot decipher the surreal + ridiculous story in its entirety, there is something else there that can help quite a bit - which I will get to later.

Mondo is a character who seems to have no real attachment to anything - and just does what he has to do, whether in a main-mission or side-mission, not asking many questions and just going full-steam ahead. And once you finally get the full picture (especially if you also check out Theatre Mode - which I will get to), you'll likely understand why Mondo is the way he is, once we are revealed so much about himself & his past. Once you see this all, it'll make more sense: no wonder Mondo is so screwed-up, as he goes about the main-quest and especially the Gigolo missions like he does, with little attachment to anything & just going straight-forward with full-steam ahead.

Once you finish the game + you want some things to be cleared-up, do yourself a favor: look + read over the unlocked Theatre Mode (which you can access in-game, in The Office). This actually tells the story + each chapter, in all of its ridiculous insanity, in a very straight-forward manner. If there's something that needs to be cleared up, there's a good chance that it's in there. Though, not everything will be revealed - as it's possible some things are meant to be left ambiguous to be interepreted or leave wide-open for (hopefully) a sequel.

This game ran on Ultra settings at a very consistent + solid 30 frames per second, most of the time. I had very few hitches + slow-downs on my rig (i7 950; 1 GB VRAM GeForce 560 Ti; 16 GB RAM; Win 7 64-bit OS) - namely, on one part on the final level for the main-quest, actually. Some PC gamers might complain the game is locked at 30 frames (since many here do prefer 60 frames per second for a frame-cap), but the game runs smooth as silk for the most part & looks really slick. I'd rather have it at a stable 30 frames 99% of the time than say floating anywhere at anytime b/t 30 to 60 frames often, IMHO.

Its art-style oozes nothing but unique-ness. The game has a cel-shaded look, but it still looks much different than other cel-shaded games such as the FPS game XIII + Borderlands series. While it may not be the most technically looking great, its art style is ozzing style, personality, unique-ness - and that style is completely fantastic, with its look, use of colors, and everything. No other cel-shaded games looks like this - period.

The game offers up main-missions and side-missions, on the game's world-map. You select a mission and then go there. Most missions, they're quite linear - as you'll often wind-up going from point A to point B, in a linear fashion - hacking- slashing, shooting, and chopping your enemies up. Some maps are quite open, as you might have to find a few items in this huge map. Finish a map, you'll be graded - and you'll earn more money for items you can buy + also earn experience as you play to upgrade your character's skills.

As you do more main missions, you'll often unlock other side-quests. Side-quests can vary in their nature. When you finish an Episode (to the main quest), you'll often unlock other side-quests in which you re-visit areas (from the Main Quest) and have specific challenges to do - which basically have side-quests often acting like challenge-maps that you'd see in other games. It could be a timed-event. It could be finding a specific item in the area and exiting the area. It could be just a specific new side-mission in that area. Who knows, roll the dice - as that is pretty much the kind of variety & insanity that comes with this game.

There are even side-missions where you play a Gigolo and try to seduce girls, in which they often up certain weapons + upgrades that you can only from doing these missions. As silly & ridiculous as these Gigolo missions are, where you have to check-out the girls, look at them, ogle them, etc..especially when they aren't paying attention - this just enforces plenty of the game's already often 4th wall breaking + satire elements, making Mondo seem like a very flawed James Bond-like type of character - and slickly also being a satire on the world of assassins and spies, as well. Simply put: this game is loaded with over-the-top sex (from the Gigolo missions) and violence (from namely the main-missions).

Even when you finish the game's main quest, you can re-do any missions you've done or not done - and continue in the game-world, which is great for players who want to master the game. Also, when selecting a mission from the world-map - the player can switch the difficulty of the even the level itself at any time. Since each difficulty had your best grade tied to it, people who want to master this game are likely going to replay it.

With the X360 gamepad (which is how I played the game) - the combat looks + feels absolutely awesome. While it does take a little bit to get going as it eases the player into learning the game early on - once the game gets going, it gets going. The game gets better and better with its combat, once you get more skills + upgrades and more different enemy types to take on. Also throw in some awesome finishing moves (cutting people's heads off & slicing people in half) & incredible boss-fights, the game is nothing short of an action-packed roller-coaster ride.

After the 12-13 hours that I appoximately spent with this game (on my 1st run), I was left with an often awesome, unique & crazy game. This over-the-top, utterly ridiculous, hack-n-slash game is an absolute blast, especially in the main missions. While some of the side-missions (challenge style missions + the repetitive nature of the Gigolo missions) are nowhere as great as the main-mission stuff + sometimes leave a little left to be desired here, they're still optional for the player to have things to do + challenges to take on, if you feel inclined. The unique art-style implemented in this cel-shaded game look great and the game runs extremely well (even if it is locked at 30 frames per second). Add onto this all that the game also has unique characters & a bat-crap crazy story + plot, satire elements, and 4th-wall breaking elements - this game is going to have its own cult-following for this stuff alone. Add onto it that gamers who might not care about the story stuff might want awesome combat, excellent boss fights - that is here, as well. Gamers who want it all - action, story, plot, insanity, you're not going to be left behind. There's just too much to like + love here for gamers to ignore; especially hack-n-slash action gamers. Killer Is Dead is the name of the game, but it's more like Killer Is Alive. This game feels alive, thrives (in so many ways) & is an absolutely awesome hack-n-slash action game.

Grade = B.

Playing this game is essentially signing a contract saying that you'll be willing to accept whatever strange insanity is going on in developer Suda51's head, and it's certainly a doozy. If you're willing to accept that you're probably not going to understand what the hell is going on (at least on your first playthrough), then you might be able to look past the veil and find a charming game worth loving. 8/10

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.

The job.. Killer is Dead.

This game is a hyper stylized anime. I highly recommend using the Japanese voice over rather than the English.

You play as Mondo Zappa. A hired Killer or Executioner as far as I understand. I'm not entirely sure if this game was made by Suda51 or just inspired however its extremely in Suda51 style regardless. Additionally is not a successor to Killer7 to the best of my knowledge despite the obvious comparison.

The gameplay is tight and responsive. There were only occasional sections were I felt the game was being cheap. Mostly the sections where flying enemies were being spawned behind you. However overall anytime I was failing a mission. It felt like it was me being impatient with the game. There are leveling mechanics; Health bar, blood bar (special bar). As well as Carnage that can be spent on upgrading your abilities such as combos.

The story is told through chapters and each one completed opens up additional side missions. Which initially seems great. Who doesn't want more videogame to play. They just feel tacked on. Some are fun, some are even challenging. The game isn't long by any stretch but with underwhelming side missions, personally, I found my interest was waning near the end game. Though it does have a nice climatic ending, Its very well done. Almost made me go back and complete the side missions I had not already completed.

There are some technical issues
The game after setup is locked at 720p @ 31fps. Which is very strange. A simple .ini file edit can fix the fps to your refresh rate or desired one as well as the resolution. But beware, should you desire to complete the Gigolo side missions, you'll need to change the fps back to 31 (I believe its the max smooth rate line you need to edit) Otherwise the game will hard lock.

There is a lot of extra stuff despite the main campaign being about 7 hours. Desire to complete them all will vary from person to person.

Killer is Dead is probably the most fun I've had playing a game this year. Suda51 goes for a more darker, noir-like tone, as opposed to his more brighter games such as No More Heroes and Lollipop Chainsaw. Despite the darker tone, it's still one of those games that doesn't take it's self too seriously, yet still offers an interesting story; albeit a slightly incoherent one. This is probably one of Suda51's most cryptic games in terms of story, it has an open ended ending which can allow for multiple interpretations and many questions are left unanswered by the end of the game.


The game mechanics for the most part are simple, attack, guard break/circle around the enemies when they block attacks, and counter/parry enemy attacks. Despite the simple mechanics I never felt the game got repetitive. Every mission had a distinct design with it's own unique boss. And to break the monotony there are sub-missions and Gigolo missions you can perform in between the main story.

Pros:
Unique setting dripping in Suda51's style.
Lots of variety in missions.
Nice amounts of side content.
Simple yet still engaging fighting system.

Cons:
Issues with Dual Core CPUS.
Somewhat incoherent story, maybe to lead towards a sequel.
Occasional slowdown, didn't happen too often but at random times the FPS would dip.

9/10

KiD... It's a hack'n'slash type of game that runs on the same principle as DmC. It's a somewhat short game, I was hoping it would go on for 2 more hours or so but it was still enjoyable. The story was great, even though it didn't make much sense and even when some parts were explained it still didn't make any sense, Maybe they were supposed to symbolize something I couldn't figure out. Art style was fairly unique and interesting. The only thing I didn't like about it was your partner Mika. Every time I heard her talk I wanted to drive a bullet through my head. She is one of the most annoying things I've ever heard. But anyways it's hard to explain this one but buy the game if you see it on sale for $5~10. Just be sure to read up on the negative comments because I think the game doesn't work on some types of computers with... dual cores or something, idk here's the link so you can check it out. Also it normally runs at 30fps but this is a game that you don't really notice it so it shouldn't matter much.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME UNLESS YOU HAVE A QUAD CORE! IT WILL CRASH AND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO FINISH IT!

Please put "quad-core processor" in the requirements or patch the game.

Otherwise, much like all the titles from Kadokawa, it's a great action game that makes very little sense.

This game is a great example of why you should always make sure your game plays and feels good before doing anything else. You see, this game's story barely makes any sense (despite being funny at times) and the game itself is filled with dumb perverted ♥♥♥♥, but the gameplay FEELS ♥♥♥♥IN GOOD and is the only reason I kept going. it is shorter than I thought, though. so if you like beat em ups/hack and slash and don't mind sitting through some ridiculous cutscenes, I'd definitely tell you to give it a go. however, if you care about characters and the story, this might not be for you.

Do you like Suda 51? Do you like action games?
If you answered yes to both of these questions this game might be something that you'll enjoy. Features a combat system that might even be better than No More Heroes.

I can't describe it any better than this but the devs caves were build with bricked cocain, and watersupply got exchanged by a constant supply of LSD. All the plants in the officeare were opium poppies and cannabis plants of the highes sativa grade. Their office must be filled with playboy pin ups even the floor manager is like 80/60/90.

You can't have enough of them drugs to understand whats going on the screen.

Devil May Cry Killer is Dead is a 3rd person action game about a man named Dante Mondo who works for a killer-for-hire agency specializing in supernatural threats. Dante Mondo fights using a sword and a gun against a variety of enemies to try to stop Vergil David, who uses a sword as well but does not use a gun and has more fully embraced the dark power they both wield.

Jokes aside, Killer is Dead is very much "what if Suda 51 did Devil May Cry". The game absolutely oozes Suda 51 style, from the art style to the completely ridiculous and over the top characters and bosses. The combat is quite a bit simpler than DMC, revolving (mostly) around a single attack button and a block/dodge button, but is quite enjoyable and fast-paced nonetheless. The plot of the game isn't much to speak of, it only really picks up during the last few chapters. Overall, KiD, while having very obvious influences, is a very fun game with that marvelous Suda 51 style.

A very intersting and stylish experience, and also very original, never seen anything like this (new to Suda 51 games) but i definitely enjoyed the ride.
The whole story seems to take place in a surreal, oniric dimension, you may like it or not i found that very interesting.
The hack n' slash mechanincs are great very well fleshed out, they feels smooth and satisfiyng, easy to learn but hard to master exactly as they should be.
The visuals, well you can see those from the steam screenshots they have a very stylish and surreal feeling that i love.

Well this game is definitely not for everyone but if you feel intrigued by some part of it you should buy this and try for yourself, you may end loving it.

This game is a wonderful mesh of fourth-wall breaking characters, James Bond and anime bizareness. However, it's also plagued with bugs. It gives the infamous 'Runaway Loop Detected (Over 100,000 iterations), preventing loading; there are numerous reported crashes on Episode Three and Episode Four; it has extreme tearing issues and graphical bugs that can be circumvented by Nvidia users in their control panel...but poor AMD is ♥♥♥♥ out of luck.

But, if you're one of the lucky few who are able to dodge the errors, you'll find a very enjoyable hack-and-slash, reminiscent of Devil May Cry, with more boobs. There are 'gigolo' missions where the object is to snap 'sexy shots' of women when they're not looking, which are bloody hillarious; there are minor bounty missions, where you have to kill so many of a certain enemy; there are story missions that are equal parts odd and engaging; Nightmare Mode is a balls-to-the-wall challenge with only three attacks being able to kill enemies (Adrenaline Burst, Dodge Burst and Headshots).

If you're a fan of Lollipop Chainsaw, Killer 7, No More Heroes and Cowboy Bebop, pick this up when it's on sale. Until the developers start releasing more bug fixes, however, this game is not worth full price.
