Summary: Killer is Dead is more than the sum of its parts. 1 part absurd story telling and 1 part fast paced action game. From the opening scene to the vignettes that are each episode, Killer is Dead will leave you with more questions than answers. But that's the point, it gives you just enough to make an educated guess as to how everything ties together. In the end you realize the game is set in a universe where you have to accept that anything is possible.
Summary: The Man on the Moon "Suda51" is a name that's synonymous with "strange". Goichi Suda has been involved with the creation of some of the oddest games to have ever been released, from killer7 to No More Heroes to Shadows of the Damned . I'm a fan of a lot of his work (I love Shadows of the Damned ). Nothing, and I mean nothing, could have prepared me for Killer Is Dead , though. It's Suda's wackiest game to date.
Summary: Awesome game, truly. You'd have to be a pretty boring person to not enjoy it. Fast and visceral action, awesome boss fights and a ridiculous plot, what more do you expect from a Goichi Suda game? If you see comments about loading times it's because they haven't installed it. Go ahead and do that like me, my 'loading screens' are just a flash of text.
Summary: It's almost impressive how ignorant and pandering the average reviewer is. Of course, it would take far too much thought to realize that "Gigolo Mode" was a rather clever commentary on the lack of depth in video game romance and the typical role of the player character as a "mary sue", a peerless sex god through which one can live out childish fantasies. Far easier to just cry about the evils of sexism so you won't be crucified by misguided feminists.
Summary: Killer Is Dead, when it comes to the gameplay, is the best Suda 51 title by far. Everything else? ehhh. The visuals are outstanding but sometimes too chaotic and hard to follow. The music is awful, probably Akira Yamaoka's worst soundtrack yet. The story doesn't know what it wants to be but it's good enough with the unique Suda51 flair.
Summary: You know it's gonna be an awesome game upon discovering it's a Suda51 title. The people responsible for developing awesome games such No More Heroes will not leave you disappointed with this one, trust me. Maybe it's not as good as NMH in terms of gameplay, and not as complicated as Killer7 in terms of story, but it defimitely deserves a pick-up. Also, I must agree with the other when I say that the reviewers went kinda too rough on this.
Summary: The was pretty awesome with hack'n slash style, and pretty impressive graphics, but lack of sound system. Like Mondo sounds is soo boring! I'm really like the gameplay soo much... Maybe if you are looking for maybe the game fit soo perfectly...
Summary: I had to create an account just to say this: This game is criminally underrated. Critics are bashing it and critisizing it for what it's not. This isn't your next DmC or Bayonneta. If you're a Suda 51 fan then you already know you're gonna love it. It is very enjoyable. The story is all kinds of anime style crazy and the gameplay is simple yet very fun. This is the type of game that you can just sit back, relax and play the hell of.
Summary: I have been blown away once again by Suda 51. As some of the other positive reviews have stated, there are many elements of the game such as sexualization of women that many are calling out as poor content, but there's a reason why no one can understand it. This game is Art. Suda 51's career has been focused solely in the production of pieces, rather than games.
Summary: Don't let the white knight reviewers fool you into thinking Killer Is Dead is a bad game due to the sexualisation of women in it. It's not perfect, that's true. The combat isn't as deep as Devil May Cry or flashy as Bayonetta, but it's incredible over the top Suda51 fun. Fighting enemies is fast paced and enjoyable, and on higher difficulties, requires serious skill. I don't use the word often, but Killer is Dead is just awesome.
