I beat this game in less than two hours, and 20 minutes of that was on the first level.

It's a slow, dull beat-em-up where you walk up to a group of thugs, beat them up, regenerate your health, clear an obstacle (door, electric wire) and then rinse and repeat. There seems to be less than half a dozen finisher moves and each one takes a good 15 seconds or so to execute, so you might as well strike the enemy a couple of extra times instead to save yourself some time. Combat is as follows: X, Y, X, Y, X, Y. Oncoming attack? Hit B to dodge. X, Y, X, Y, X, Y. If you want to vary things up, you can try different permutations of X and Y, but it doesn't do much. There are combos you can do by hitting three attacks one after another, which momentarily stuns the enemy, but there's very little difference between them and dodging an attack breaks your combo anyway.

There's no variety in the combat at all. You're constantly fighting the same two kind of enemies, normal and big enemies. They do occasionally have weapons or a shield. You'll be fighting a big thug with a shield in one level, then in the next level a big police officer with a shield. Your moves remain the same throughout the whole game. How about letting me use that baseball bat I disarmed from an enemy? Isn't that beat'em up 101?

Around the second level I got tired of beating up countless groups of enemies, so I tried just walking past them... it worked. In fact, you can walk past about 80% of the enemies in this game. Occasionally there will be a gate you can't climb over until you clear out a group of nearby enemies, but any other type of object (electric box, ladder) you can interact with while in combat.

For some reason Kick-♥♥♥ has a Spanish accent. The voice acting is atrocious. Besides having little to no emotion, almost all of the voice actors mispronounce words (parkour = parker, goth = ghoth). Every other time you climb a ladder, for some reason Kick-♥♥♥ spouts "Damn. Why the hell am I doing this?". You'll be hearing the same taunts over and over throughout the game.

Besides the issues with clipping, invisible walls galore, the camera obstructing your view in combat, and the lack of mouth movement when characters speak, I actually like the graphic style of the game. If they had put a bit of effort into making the combat fun and varied, maybe put some things to do in the levels besides beating up on groups of thugs every 30 seconds, they might have had a decent game.

The game also screws up your system font every time you launch it. Many thanks to the German reviewer here for finding out what the game does: http://steamcommunity.com/id/unevermind/recommended/304170/

The game disables ClearType in Windows. To re-enable it, go to the Control Panel and search for "Adjust ClearType text". Check "Turn on ClearType" and hit next a few times to make your fonts normal again.

Seeing so many negative reviews, i was interested to try this out my self.

let me tell you, it's as bad as people say.

Voice acting is terrible (i don't even think the guy that voices Kick-♥♥♥ speaks fluent English, let alone has an American accent.
The gameplay itself is really rigid and awkward. you have a list of combos that are actually impossible to pull off. resulting in a swing, pause, swing, get punched in the face. Type fighting style.
The audio is terribly inbalanced. Ranging from eardrum piercingly loud music to barely audible voices. Made worse when they had people voice over this music.
Controls are, at best. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. even menu controls made me wonder why they didn't just copy every other game with sensible controls.
Crediot to the devs, the finishers are... inventive? If exteremely ridiculous and impractical.
I only managed to get to the 2nd group of thugs before i turned this off. It's an awfully designed game which i couldn't bare continuing through.

I bought a cheap bundle in order to get this game, i even regret spending that $3 on it.
Certainly wouldn't recommend unless you want to laugh at how terrible it is.
Whoever at "testmania.de" gave it 80% rating clearly didn't actually launch the game at all.

AVOID
other than KA's (the only playable character) slow attacks and crappy voice acting the game suffers from horrible bugs.
on the 1st board alone i had 1 guy vanish and during the level boss one froze making here unkillable and forcing me to restart the level.

One of the worst games I have ever played here on Steam.

    This game is insanely BUGGY, like:
  • Going through walls.
  • Getting stuck in place for a while.
  • FLYING.
  • Sinking through the floor.

    Combat
  • The combat is very dull, slow-paced, and simple.
  • The enemies are faster in combat.

    Other Issue
  • You cannot tab out of the game.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. 0/10!
