As far as I can see, if there was ever a game that was pretending to be an art house film, Killer 7 would be it. From the stylized, psuedo-noir/comic book/anime inspired graphics to the dark, brooding, and sex-laden story and the weird gameplay, you have the makings of an art house video game, as strange as that sounds. But does it work? In a word, mostly.
Going back to the art comment, each level in this game and each presentation of idea screams art. It's like passing surreal paintings in a museum. You pass one and go "whoa, that's weird." And you might pass another one that makes you want to tilt your head so you can maybe understand it better. And yet, you come up with a hint but nothing concrete. This game is like that, except that each level, each character each piece of dialogue is connected in a way a wall full of paintings usually isn't.
Normally, when a game puts style and story over gameplay, bad juju occurs. For instance, Xenosaga II was a great movie, but as a game it was horrible. In this case, I've known from the beginning that the gameplay would be as equally weird as the storyline. Suda 51, the game's creator, had been asked when Killer 7 was first introduced via some strange cut scenes how it would play. His answer was he didn't know. They had spent so much time and effort getting the feel and story of the game down, that they had no clue how it would ultimately play like.
Truthfully, I shouldn't like this game. And yet, somehow I do. So, how does it play?Read more ›
I can't in good conscience say "Buy this game right now", only in part because of the intense content. Most people I've talked to are pretty polarized about Killer7: they either love it to death or hate it intensely. I'm one of the former, so of course they're the correct group.
Killer7 is one of the strangest, darkest, most controversial (or it would be, if more people knew about it) and overall great games I've ever played.
STORY: Wow. Just... wow. Where do I begin? What can I possibly say? I can't pretend to even understand half of the story, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's incomprehensible. It's like Neon Genesis Evangelion, in that way; you sort of have to find your own meaning. What starts as the Smiths on just another mission to wipe out some Heaven Smile takes a turn for the (even more) bizarre, and... well, I'd have to start going into tedious details to elaborate any further. As you play through various missions, you realize that there is much more going on than simple terrorism. God-like beings, political scandals of global proportions, child organ trafficking and the true nature of the United States all have places in the story, as well as the twisted past of the Killer 7 and their entourage of Remnant Psyches (ghosts, for lack of a better description, who show up and talk to/aid/abuse you every so often.Read more ›
The enemies are odd creatures that either stagger slowly towards you like zombies or run quickly like the ones from "28 Days Later". You have to press R to bring up your weapon and press L to scan them, as they are invisible. Scanning also displays their weak spots with a yellow dotted sparkle, and you quickly have to shoot at the spot to kill them in one shot. Killing them gives you blood, which you use to upgrade character skills, replentish health, etc.
You press A to walk, and the games guides you along rails, and you reach junctions, which lead you in opposite paths. Some players don't like this control, as it takes away the roaming aspect, but I personally think it's cool.
Killer 7 is a game a lot of people will hate, I had a friend borrow mine and give it back, saying it was gay and too strange.
I thought it was even too bizarre for me at first, but I instantly got hooked to it and did not want to stop playing, even after long periods of playing where usually you would get sick of the game you were playing.
A warning to some players: this game is gory, disturbing, graphic, has bad language and some sexual content.
