Product Description

Platform: GameCube

Killer7 is the action adventure game of a hard-boiled taste. A player makes full use of small arms or special capability, making the character of seven "the professional killers with seven character" whom become hero Harman Smith and he has change, and confronts "man with hand of God" Kun Laon which aims at a national overthrow. They are the man who plans the world into fear of indiscriminate terrorism, the man who is going to stop the wave, and the revenge tragedy with which the life of two persons becomes entangled intricately. A view of the world thrilling at DAKU which the visual and individual character of art by cell shading performs, and the game style which was not until now are the new games of charm.

Games have been described as art in the past. A game that comes immediately to mind is Ico, which oozed personality and landscapes that were both etheral and were just like a painting. Not until this game have I ever played a game that was almost like interactive art.

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?

I'm not new to writing reviews. I've done quite a few, on Amazon and elsewhere. Usually it's pretty easy, but this Killer 7 review was actually very difficult, and took me a great deal of time to complete. There are NO WORDS that can adequately describe the Killer7 experience, and any real attempt to do so is doomed to become a rambling stream of metaphors and descriptions.
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.

When I first saw this game on a gaming televsision program, I knew it was for me. The graphics are completely stylized. It's all pure cel-shading and Sin City style black and white. Like a western comic or graphic novel. The sound is haunting and blends perfectly with the eerie feeling of the atmosphere. The seven Smiths are all unique and free of game cliches. There's knife mastering albino, a magnum toting guy in a black suit, a blind man with duala fully-automatic pistols, a masachist girl with a powerful handgun, a masked wrestler with dual grenade-launcher handguns, a South American thief, and the man in the white suit with the silenced handgun. All the characters are fun to use and everyone will be able to find a favorite. Note that the game IS graphic and isn't for the kiddies. Wether or not a parent would buy it for their child is what they think of the child's maturity and ability to understand and handle these things. The story is rich with interesting plot twists and a great political feel. The thinkers will love this game. The "kill-everything-that-moves-without-any-thought" gamers will hate it. The rail system may seem to limit freedom, but it is easy to get used to it with a bit of playing. The true artistic minds and innovation lovers will adore this. Casual gamers may find it a bit unplayable. Still this is a wonderful game. As the tittle says, one word describes this game: Brilliance.

I am into weird movies like Quentin Tarantino's films, and when I heard what this game was like I wanted to play it badly. I bought it at EB Games for 40$ and it's WELL worth it. The game and controls and storyline and very different from anything you've played before, but it's very unique. The characters you can control are some of the coolest ever, and it seems almost like a graphic novel/film. To sum that up, it reminds you of Sin City, as the colors are mostly black and white with the splashes of red for blood and some yellow for the enemies weak spots.

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.
