    One of the most unique titles ever to hit a console, as well as one of the Gamecube's best. It uses an original art style with simplistic gameplay to create a unique and addictive experience.
  2. Ultimately, Killer7 is both an interesting and creative game. The controversial control method needs some getting used to and may turn off certain gamers, but if you give it a chance, you'll find yourself intrigued with the game and its amazing story.

    The overall package of the game is excellent and should be considered in any hardcore gamer's collection.
  4. 80
    An experience first and a game second. Players going into it with that in mind should enjoy this immensely, those looking for a deep gameplay experience may want to try before they buy.
  5. No game can claim to be as visually and aurally stunning as Killer7. There has been no video game as heavily and expressively stylised before, with the beautiful, cel-shaded visuals forming an integral part of the game, rather than a back of the box bullet point.
  6. It just feels like an incomplete work that got too much artistic style and far too little gaming substance.
  7. 0
    At best, playing the game is like having someone shout in your ear for 15 hours straight. At worst, it's like getting a high colonic with balsamic vinegar.

    Truly a vision. A depressing, convoluted, morbid one, but a vision nonetheless. Note that the bad ratings above came from magazines that tend Truly a vision. A depressing, convoluted, morbid one, but a vision nonetheless. Note that the bad ratings above came from magazines that tend to be sold to dull men seeking... something less than intellectual stimulation. This is a unique game, inhabiting its own universe. I've finished it and been blown away, finished it twice more and read a 30-page essay on it, and still I'm not close to comprehending all of it. Play if you want to think. Expand

I, for one, am completely enthralled by this game. Outstanding piece of work that ranges anywhere from "mildly fun" to "insanely fun", most of the time spent in the middle, but never falling below "mildly fun". Expand

For me, it's like a "Revolver" movie, if anyone watched. Surreal atmosphere, weird characters, interesting plot (with several layers), AWESOME visual style (close to both noir comic novels and some 80's anime) and, of course, music that suits the game ideally.
