Summary: Killer 7 and Resident Evil 4 were being developed by Capcom around the same time. And half a decade later, many gamers can clearly see who won the popular favor. Let's face it, RE4 had everything going for it: solid gameplay, an unforgettable story, and great voice acting to name a few. What if I told you, though, that Killer 7 has these exact same things and more?
Summary: I first got this game because it seemed to stand out in a magazine of Nintendo Power. The story isn't the easiest to follow but it is executed with little fault. The game play is rather simple yet unique, technically it's "on rails" because you are limited to certain directions to explore in levels. Yet you still control where you go in the contained space. As you can tell by the cover, you can be any one of these assassins and they come with their own style.
Summary: Pretentious garbage. Not a good game as it lacks gameplay. Quirky presentation and obviously some thought has gone into it and it is trying to be original. However, it is not a reason to own it or waste your time despite what some teenagers think.
Summary: Killer 7 is definitely not your average game for your average gamer...it really is one of those games which is considered to be revolutionary. It is not, by any means, a perfect game, but despite its flaws (some would argue that it is flawless) it REALLY does make me want to keep playing it, and as long as you appreciate the storyline and the creativity/insanity of the game over the gameplay, then it's a great game.
Excerpt: "I have a theory. I think that the 7 in the title name stands for the amount of people who where going to buy it. Looking at sales figures for the game, it seems i was right. Us Brits just don't do 'Weird' and this game is the personification of 'weird'. Announced as one of Capcoms Gamecube big 5, Killer 7 quickly established itself as one of the more quirky titles to come from the studio. It was overly violent, pretty to look at and nobody ...
Excerpt: "Killer 7 is a fantastic game. It revolves around the so-called Heaven Smile, a series of terrorists who blow themselves up whilst giggling maniacally. It is up to Harman Smith, and his collection of 7 psychopathic personalities each with their own special way of bringing the pain to stop this terrifying new presence. The first thing that will strike you about Killer 7 is the whole Manga/Anime influence, the whole game is made out like a comic ...
Summary: This is one unusual game,the cartoon style graphics are amazing,the story is also brilliant in a disturbing,twisted way.The actual game play is very basic,almost playing like one giant cutscene,but don't let this put you off,it more than makes up for it with attitude and dark humour.Don't expect challenging gameplay,but do expect cool visuals,absorbing story and seven of the baddest characters in any game so far.If you have a dark sense of humour you will love this.
Excerpt: "Killer 7 is a sort of survival horror/ shoot 'em up game of the highest quality. The game follows the adventures of Harman Smith, a 65 year old man with Schizophrenia. What makes Harman special is that he is an Assasin who goes by the nickname of the "God Killer" even though he is confined to a wheelchair and is looked after by a similarly Schizophrenic nurse. What makes Harman such a good Assasin is his personalities. By some unknown force they have ...
Pros: Fantastic art style combined with one of the most intensifying games on the Gamecube .
Cons: Linear running system may make some people think the game is restrictive .
Summary: The title of my review will probably sum up how most gamers will feel after playing Killer 7. This game is simply astounding (to an extent). The central concept of Killer 7 is truly unique. Harman Smith, a wheelchair bound old man, has 7 personalities living inside his head- each one a skilled assassin with their own abilities. For example, Kaede Smith, a female assassin wearing a blood splattered dress, carries a pistol with a scope and is able to destroy barriers.
