    D4 is quite a silly game. But also an awesome one, exactly what you'd expect from the creator of the cult classic Deadly Premonition.

    D4 is Swery65 after all. Great and insane characters, intriguing plot and good Kinect gameplay. However, the game has some graphical issues.

    From its insanely quirky characters to its underlying tragedy, D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die is oddity done right.

    As gamers we are taught that games should fit different formulas, game characters should be certain types, and stories should be told in certain ways. D4 refuses to accept the established methods and creates it's own rules like a drunk man on a focused mission. Sometimes it's good to let go of all inhibitions and join the drunk guy in his binge.

    D4 is a darkly weird game, and one that boasts a fair amount of polish as it experiments with genres and controls. It’s not for everyone, but the solid Kinect input and trademark Japanese madness make for one deep dive that you won’t soon forget.

    The story is not the main draw here. [Issue#154, p.124]

    To be clear, I wasn't expecting a complete game from D4—the episodic model guarantees a certain amount of waiting around on the part of the consumer—but this doesn't even feel like a complete episode.

Depuis Dance Central, nous attendions un jeu qui exploite le gadget souvent décrié.

    Aujourd'hui nous avons donc en face de nous un jeu stylisé, avec une direction artistique incroyable, un scénario complètement barré, et des heures de jeu en perspective. Un régal.

I echo a lot of what the industry reviews are stating. So give the professional reviews a read. They are pretty spot on (I think Destructoid's review is very informative). Swery65 has created another brilliantly bizarre experience that is worth a look for anyone that enjoys adventure games with a healthy dose of insanity and the Kinect integration is actually pretty well done. A solid addition to the Xbox One library. 8/10 from me. Expand
