    Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed is a fun game full of references to otaku culture, but the ancient design choices hold the game back from being a must have title.

    It may not be a must-have remaster such as other PS4 re-releases, but fans of the Vita version and especially newcomers should have no issue double-dipping on this latest port.

    This is not necessarily an experience for everyone, but the light-hearted stripping mechanic makes it an enjoyable romp all the same, and a worthy addition to your PS4 library if you haven’t played it already.

    Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed is a strange game that might satisfy the anime faithful. The technical elements are mediocre at best (even worse when compared with the best the PlayStation 4 has to offer), the story is absurd, and the gameplay mechanic is original yet flawed.

    Even after you strip away the high level of fanservice and questionable theme; for every aspect that I enjoyed such as the characters and voiceover, there were others that marred my experience such as the repetitive combat, irritating camera and repetitive mission structure. For those that can ignore these misgivings, there is an enjoyable game waiting to be played.

    Akiba's Trip is a mediocre beat'em up with scanty RPG traits which relies heavily upon nudity and softcore humor to make up for its shortcomings.
  7. 25
    Combine Undead & Undressed‘s disturbing sexuality and sexism with its poor graphics and combat and $50 price tag, you get a game that not only should definitely not be purchased, but probably never should have been made in the first place.

    any who this is a review no me rambling about japan. so about the game, If you like anime, manga, or Japanese pop culture you will love this, Its a mix of a visual novel and 3D beat em up with RPG elements. Also exceed did an ecellent job with the english dub.
    If you liked persona 4, blazeblue, hyperdimention neptunia, or danganronpa, you will like this.

The Akibahara area of Japan is recreated very well as I lived in Japan for three years and visited the area multiple times. The story is completely off the wall but that's not the selling point of the game. The game is slightly perverse but the concept is actually quite fun. Tearing clothes off Synthisters (vampires) who are brave enough to wander around the streets of Akiba is just plan fun. There are many different strip styles you can obtain during the game, multiple endings, tons of weapons and clothes to choose from, and many stores that actually exist in Japan to buy items from. The only reason I ding the game is for overly advertising real stores during the game. At some points I almost feel like I'm playing a giant advertisement but other than that I loved this game.

    Let me get this out first: Not everyone will like Akiba's Trip, especially people who can't get into games that are strongly referencingLet me get this out first: Not everyone will like Akiba's Trip, especially people who can't get into games that are strongly referencing japanese culture, in this case otaku specifically.
    Personally I am indifferent to this, but I don't want to play western audience games all the times, so this game is a nice change. If I were to categorize Akiba's Trip, it is foremost a brawler, with RPG, visual novel and dating sim elements. The story, while not containing too many surprises, is interesting enough and the characters are very likable and well acted.
    The in-game graphics are not special, while sharp and with bright colors, the textures are not all that detailed, but overall it's good enough to not be in the way. The static graphics on the other hand are beautiful, it's a nice touch to display real japanese ads during the (short) load times. The static character graphics are beautifully drawn.
    I personally like the soundtrack, which is in the style I usually hear in anime movies (haven't watched to many of those), a lot of piano, guitars, bass and vocals.
    About the gameplay: the fighting element has some issues, mostly because the controls are not very responsive, throughout my playing I never had a feeling to be truly in control of my actions. The only time when I felt this is during the quick-time events where you pull the clothing off, on the casual level at least, you have sufficient time to basically never fail and pull-off long chains, especially towards the end, when the game throws hordes of opponents at you. Apropos "hordes of opponents", unfortunately, sometimes the game will throw infinite amounts of opponents at you and even if you have no trouble beating them, it never ends. I believe this to be a bug that can be hopefully fixed in the future.
    You can finish the game relatively quick, and luckily, the game offers enough incentives to play the game multiple times, since you have a New Game+ mode, can customize your characters, see multiple endings and go item hunting.
    I give this a 7, mostly because of the unresponsive fighting, but I thing it's a very cute game, and worth playing if you are open to games from the Japanese culture.

    Undead and Undressed is a rather strange game from the start, you begin in a very dark room strapped to a table after being experimented onUndead and Undressed is a rather strange game from the start, you begin in a very dark room strapped to a table after being experimented on only to then be told that you are no longer human in, you have been changed into a man made vampire who will soon be feasting on the general public’s energy an just to be difference its not their life force you are after it is their determination its amazing what happens when you apply for a job and sign something without reading it T&C’s its how they get ya.

    Don’t worry though as just before they are about to kill you after marking you as a failure you are saved by a rather good looking lady in white who’s weapon of choice is wait for it an umbrella!! I know what you are thinking but its more useful than you think as then the game will shift to battle mode where you get a rather old school 3D fighter where you beat your enemies into submission.

    The battle mode is good as it flows pretty well and the controls are easy to master and before you know it will be handing out combo after combo in no time at all, but get this in this game you don’t really have a life meter remember when I said you are a man made vampire well whats a vampire’s biggest weakness you got it the SUN!! but only if your body is not covered in cloths at all times when in the sun so this is in essence your life meter as in order to keep your enemies down you need to beat them senseless and then rip off there cloths before they rip off yours and when I say rip them off that is literally right down to their underwear and if you can get a good going rhythm then you get the bonus of pulling off their underwear as well the only bad point on this is its all blocked out AND they tend to either run away or they burst into flames before your very eyes.

    All that aside the graphics themselves are not state of the art but the over all experience that you get from this game is pretty strong I personally saw it as a bit of fun that really does justice to not just a fighter but also a decent J-RPG as the story is fairly strong this is a game that you can pick up and just fall into even if you have not played it for a while.

    I recommend this game to anyone who is a fan of JRPG’s and 3D Fighters be you hardcore gamers or casual gamers this is a really fun game to play and enjoy.
