Summary: The idea of detaching your body seems pretty novel.... but it becomes such an annoyance if it happens the 700th time!!!! You explode in the slightest hit.... Bad voice acting Uninteresting characters and story Bad gunplay Dumb ending (even after credits...) Generic environments Joke boss battles the only good things i liked were: Sword control The puzzles Certain songs of the soundtrack (most of it is generic and loops through each enemy encounter...
only reason it didnt get one star was because i only paid 4$

Summary: this game is just horrible, controls are less than stellar, some parts are confusing unless you know what your supposed to be doing, not really much of a tutorial or outline of what ablities the main character has other than he can be dismembered without dying, great concept, poor exicution
there's a reason this 6 month old game is selling for <$20

Summary: As much as I want to like Neverdead, I can't. Its not fun and has a tendancy to get extremely aggrivating. The near universal dislike for it is justified. I've read that the creator himself admitted the game wasn't good because (to paraphrase) they put so much effort into showing off the physics engine used to make the game, they never got around to making sure the game was any good.
Pros: cheap price has features that border on creative features a song by Megadeth Cam Clarke is in it
Cons: feels like a throw-away title a game company doesn't expect to sell, so they put no effort into it. Almost everything about Neverdead is mediocre. The plot and characters are suspiciously similar to Devil May Cry. The writing and dialogue are weak. The game itself is extremely repetitive. The BGM is simple short metal powerchords repeated ad nauseum. There are enemy generators that spam enemies until they're destroyed; taking them to half health is easy, but the rest ...
Summary: I thought this game was going to be f******** good. For me, this game sucks.. Wow, the gameplay is just terrible. I dont feel like a neverdead to me. lol. The only cool part is that his head goes off of his body and rolls around. When you shoot, it doesnt give you that vibration shooting. It just shoots and nothing happens to ur control even though when you to the settings, it is set to "on" for vibration.lol the graphics are not that bad.
A Promising New Title That Ends Up More Frustrating than Fun

Summary: I had been looking forward to Neverdead since it was first announced back in 2010. The premise of a wise-cracking 500 year old immortal who could crumble to pieces and reassemble himself, seemed like it could be fun. I was a fan of UK developer Rebellion's Alien vs. Predator games and with Konami publishing, I had high hopes.
Excerpt: I Neverdead spelar du som den odödliga wisecrackern Bryce Boltzmann, en prisjägare som jagar demoner för pengar och hämnd (deras ledare och spelets antagonist dödade frugan). Med dig har du din kvinnliga partner Arcadia Maximille, ett urval av pistoler och ett fett svärd. Staden är infesterad av groteska demoner med vassa saker – ditt jobb är att döda dem.
