  • Summary: NEVERDEAD begins in the waking hours of peace and calm, when the world is under threat of being consumed by a demonic plague. Centuries have passed since the world succumbed to an unforeseen shadow of evil, and a hero was made an immortal by demons. These demons have risen once again in the present day causing unrelenting mayhem reinforced by destructible environments within the game. Now using his immortalic regenerative powers re-assembling his own body to evade death, the hero carries out the only salvation the world will know, for he is Never Dead. Expand

    NeverDead is a cool and solid hack'n'slay like the good old Devil May Cry games. The crazy setting and the immortal hero will not appeal to every player, but I like the new and fresh gameplay mechanics.

    A decent action-game that resembles Devil May Cry's gameplay in many ways, with less style and a single, interesting new idea that Rebellion, unfortunately, didn't develop as it deserved.

    We wanted NeverDead to be a good game, because it was trying to achieve something different. But the game is frustrating and sometimes even boring.

    A great concept with potential, torn to pieces by bland shooting, horrid dialogue and frustrating design. Swordplay can be fun but there's little else to enjoy. [Issue#82, p.88]

    We give developer Rebellion a pat on the back for trying something original in the shooter genre, but it simply doesn't work that well. The story is dumb and so is main character Bryce. The gameplay is incredibly repetitive and gets really frustrating, really fast.

    Konami, I know you've been making games for years. We all really enjoyed the arcade games you've graced us with through the decades. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will live in our hearts forever. You had X-Men, Dance Dance Revolution, ESPN NFL Primetime, and of course your golden egg, the Metal Gear Solid series. But please, can we say NeverDead never happened, never alive? Chalk this one up, call it a tax write-off, and get back on the horse of awesomeness.

    NeverDead is a game, and it can be completed. In my opinion, those are the two truths that cushion the space between a D- and an F. Remove those two facts, and you're left with an amateur effort that redefines the boundary between bad game and flat-out punishment.

    I stopped listening to IGN back when they gave Metro a 6.5 and started giving 9's that had Call of Duty slapped on the cover and I am glad I did. This game is unique, something hard to find these days. Its by far not the best and a bit cheesy from time to time, But if you enjoy that crazy action sort of game that comes out of Japan every now and again this games fun. The graphics are fairly impressive aswell too. The voice acting could have used a little more work though. Expand

    "NeverDead" not only squandering an interesting premise as transforms into a hindrance, an excuse for include challenges that test not the skill, but the player's patience. At first, gets to be fun the festival of destruction of enemies and scenarios, but only until when will realize that this is repeated until the end of the game. Incidentally, the final struggles are among the most frustrating already viewed in the game. In the end, "NeverDead" is nothing more than a generic game action and shooting with esquisitões characters. Expand

    I think I have to differ with my fellow user reviewers. NeverDead follows the same cycle of developers creating a great idea, but in the end the opportunities for a great game are squandered thanks to poor dialouge from the characters, poor design decisions, and poor characters in general. In my opinion it's just another good idea gone bad. Expand

    Os gráficos e o conceito de regeneração são bons, e só, porque a jogabilidade horrível, os monstros foram desenhados com a bunda, os personagens não possuem carisma. Expand

    Somehow I feel that a lot of these perfect scores on here come from the people who made the game, nice one guys. "Hey guys, our game is great and reviewers who gave it negative scores are just retards who hate our company, LOLZ, it's just like DMC but better!!!" The game might be a fun way to waste time with some friends in a its-so-bad-it-is-actually-entertaining kind of way, if it was 19 bucks, but a five hour pile of crap for 60 dollars? Expand
