    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.

    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.

    I am reminded of a time from before the consoles; a time when stories were told & storyworlds were created that bore the idiosyncratic marks I am reminded of a time from before the consoles; a time when stories were told & storyworlds were created that bore the idiosyncratic marks of their creators. Yes, the mechanics of Killer 7 seem bizarre at first and much has been said on this subject. I really can't fault Suda 51 for some of the decisions that were made when the total experience so absorbing. Just brace yourself for something a little fresh. 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.

    Killer7 es uno de los shooters por raíles más bizarros y extraños que he tenido el placer de conocer. Describirlo no es sencillo y su estéticaKiller7 es uno de los shooters por raíles más bizarros y extraños que he tenido el placer de conocer. Describirlo no es sencillo y su estética de sombreado ha hecho que más o menos envejezca bien. Se agradecería que se hiciera una remasterización traducida en todas las plataformas posibles.

    Y si en algo destaca Killer7 es que no intenta sobre-explicarse y tienes que saber interpretar por capas el mensaje subyacente en el que se nota la visión de autor SUDA51, y que esta es posiblemente su mejor obra personal.

    Por suerte hay muchas vídeos con disertaciones acerca del mensaje y como muchos jugadores lo han terminado de interpretar. Encarnarás las 7 personalidades de un asesino veterano cada uno con sus habilidades diferenciadoras y si bien esto no creo que te aclare nada sobre el asunto, solo espero que arroje algo de luz. Killer7 es algo que debes experimentar por ti mismo para poder tener una opinión más objetiva.

    Waste of time. There is no depth behind the confusing plot. The graphics and art style aren't even that great. It could be Waste of time. There is no depth behind the confusing plot. The graphics and art style aren't even that great. It could be 'cool' if you are 12-15 years old. Expand
