About the Product

  • The twisted mind behind controversial but adored titles such as Lollipop Chainsaw, Killer 7 and No More Heroes is back with a bizarre tale of an executioner tracking down high-level terrorists in a cyberpunk world
  • Visuals are presented in a fashion reminiscent of a moving comic book, bringing the stylish and ultra-violent world to life
  • Swordplay is Mondo's preferred style, but his left bionic arm can be used for powerful punches to attack enemies or break through barriers, and it can also transform into a gun when ranged combat is necessary
  • Dozens of extra missions outside of the main story give players access to unlockable outfits, money to upgrade weapons, materials to aid in a pinch, and "Gigolo Mode" to seduce the various beautiful women Mondo meets throughout the story

Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360

Killer Is Dead is the latest title from the demented mind of celebrated game creator, SUDA51, serving as a spiritual successor to his previous cult favorites, No More Heroes and Killer 7. Stylish cell-shaded visuals set the mood in this gritty, bloody, ultra-violent world where biomechanical augmentations increase the power of criminals and "executioners" alike. Mondo Zappa, a newly recruited executioner, hunts criminals wielding a Japanese sword in his right hand, and the crushing power of biomechanical engineering in his left.

This game is very unique in a good way. Directed by the Japanese director known for "Killer 7" the game clearly shows the somewhat irreverent post-modern style. I would say some levels could even be described as avant-garde. This may be good or bad, depending how you look at games. If you enjoy traditional character types and story where you expect normal dialogue and linear progression this isn't exactly it. The game has very strange and often creepy dialogue, it somewhat objectifies women, (and men) hence my previous description "irreverent".

The game heavily focuses, perhaps as a parody, on cyberpunk style. You and other characters casually have cybernetic limbs and implants and everyone acts casually like they're not there.
At the same time the gameplay is shown in high contrast, dark shadows, environment and is accompanied by 70s acid jazz music . Not exactly to my liking but it plays only in the main menu.
It has an interesting mini game where your character is going on dates with different girls over the world. You have to go on those dates to get new weapons or items actually. So the game is definitely aimed at men.

Gameplay itself feels like a very good button mashing combo pressing fighting game. You unlock moves as you gain crystals. You have to learn the righty timing to get the moves to work. Have to know when to use what melee weapon or item. So the gameplay is very solid. Graphics may not be the best, and in fact they are kind of abstract frequently, but it does not hinder anything. Action looks stylish and exciting. The main character is somewhat relatable male.

Killer is Dead is about a Gigolo Hit Man with a katana and a weaponized mechanical arm versus an army of cybernetic monstrosities called Wires. The game features Suda 51's bizarre style of humor, a wacky cast of characters, great melee combat, and the most unique weapon upgrade system of all time. If you like hack and slash games, you'll enjoy this one!

Story: ?/10
Ok, I finished the game on all of the difficulty levels and I still can't tell you what the story is about. Apparently there's a mansion on the dark side of the moon and when people go there a kinky guy named David will haunt their dreams and turn them into a nightmarish cyber-mutant. Then someone will call the hit man agency and Mondo, a bionic ladies man, will battle them in memorable fashion. The story is so strange, you'll keep watching to see what happens next and at times, it's hilarious.

Gameplay: 7/10
This is a level based game with lots of mini-challenges. The main campaign is composed of 12 missions. These are traditional action / combat levels with very slight puzzles. Mondo will battle his way through the levels destroying enemies by the hundreds. The combat is easy to learn and has a surprising amount of depth. Hidden throughout the levels are collectibles. The most memorable collectible is Scarlett, the sexiest nurse of all time. When you find her, she fills up your blood meter, which allows you to perform special attacks and she unlocks a special challenge level in her lab. At the end of each level is a unique boss battle. After you complete the level, you are graded on your time, damage you took, and your fighting ability. Based on your grade, you get cash.

Side Missions
As you play through the levels, you unlock side missions.

I don't know why people complain that this game is "too short". Yes, it's only 12 chapters and yes, you can beat it in less than a day. But as an adult with a full time job and not as much time for games as I used to have, I actually appreciate a game that keeps it short and sweet. This is a hack n' slash, fast-paced adventure that doesn't overstay its welcome. Too many games feel the need to pack in level after repetitive level just to boast longer play times - I think the length of this one is just perfect.

The story is as insane as you would expect for a Suda51 game. For example, one of the first missions is an Alice in Wonderland tribute where you have to kill Alice to rid her of a parasite alien she picked up on her vacation to the moon. It only gets stranger from there, right up to the final boss fight.

The artwork in the game is gorgeous - it looks and plays great. The side missions are a little strange - picking up "beauties" in bars by staring at them, using special goggles to look at their lingerie and giving them gifts. This may seem offensive to some people, but I personally thought it was funny.

Overall, Killer is Dead is a game worth at least a rental. If you buy the retail version it comes with an artbook and soundtrack. It's a worthy addition to any game collection.
