Over 500 years have passed since a mortal named Bryce Boltzmann endured a life-altering tragedy at the hands of Astaroth, the Demon King. His wife murdered, left defeated and rendered immortal, he now moves through life without aspirations other than where he will find his next drink. Lending a hand to the clandestine group, the National Anti-Demon Agency(NADA), he pursues redemption through the extermination of demonic forces within the modern day world along with his agency partner, Arcadia.
NeverDead is a third person action/shooter offering a radically new game experience within the genre based on decapitation and regeneration. Lose any limb and still have the ability to endure the fight as death has already passed you by...

The heart and soul of this game is the dismemberment feature, be it for solving puzzles or using your limbs in different means for combat. It makes sense in a way. When you have a protagonist that can't die, you need to have some kind of challenge. I never found it old (all be it sometimes frustrating) as you blow yourself up and all your parts go flying off in various directions. This leads to a mad dash (or roll via your head) to collect your limbs or out run monsters whose sole purpose is to eat your head. The upgrade system also works well, however it takes time to really power yourself up.
All the environments are decently done and the "destructible" settings add some flare. But don't think it's anywhere as destructible as Red Faction. It simply adds another element to the game.
I will say my two biggest problems with this game are the constant need to protect your partner (you can die very easily) and the insanely fast re-spawn rate of monsters. To constant escort mission of your partner is fine, but she dies so easily. She doesn't seem to be able to hold herself in battles at all. Granted it's nowhere as bad as say Knights Contract, but like most games with an AI guardian, it could be better. With the monster re-spawn, it can be insanely fast. Especially in an area where you cannot progress until you kill all the monsters and spawn points. This element gets rather frustrating later on, when you have multiple spawn points and you are surrounded by hordes of monsters.
All in all, Neverdead isn't a bad game.Read more ›
Way too much negativity towards this game! It's fresh, original and I think it pisses people off just because it's not CoD. It uses a fun, unique mix of shooting, swordplay and limb combat that you won't get in any other game. The characters are a nice break from the norm and provide good entertainment and so far I'm loving all of it. The music is awesome. The graphics are good. And these days for the price a new copy is a steal. The swordplay controlled with the right stick works amazingly and just going around destroying the environment is fun in itself. Monsters also slice up according to swing direction, Bryce frowning while his decapitaded head flies through the air it's all just great. I thought losing limbs would be a pain but its beyond easy to regain them so no stress there.
Dodging and slicing feels cool and let's you keep those limbs too. I'll update more but so far. For this game to make this impression and have me do this review on my phone says something. Its a refreshing, especially if you've played as many games as I have. Happy gaming.
NeverDead's gameplay is an interesting blend of hack and slash, shooting, and puzzle solving to some degree. The charm comes in the fact that Bryce can't die. Instead of traditional health systems, Bryce falls apart. High damage can cause his limbs to go flying, leaving Bryce to hobble around on one foot and shooting with one arm. The only true way to die is to have your head eaten, even then you don't really die, you just get digested for eternity... same diff. In addition to it's body driven mechanic, the game also encourages you to destroy environments to kill enemies. With a surprising amount of detail and precision, it's easy to forget that there are any limitations to the destruction.
NeverDead's story for the most part is mildly entertaining, with it's saving grace being the banter between Bryce and Arcadia. It's original gameplay also is a refreshing change from the usual chaotic shooter experience. The actual combat can grow rather repetitive due to most enemies having some quirk that requires a specific approach to defeating them, tying you to a mechanical combat routine. NeverDead feels like it had a great concept in mind but due to limited inspiration to it's combat system makes what would have been an absolute must own, into a bargain bin destined conceptual waste.
Let's see how it stacks up...
