    Katana Zero is on the short side, but it uses every minute of its 5-6 hour run-time well, packed to the brim with satisfying carnage and a brain-bending narrative. It’s not often that a game so completely blindsides me, entering my radar and winning me over so quickly, and it’s a wonderful feeling when it happens. In fact, my only gripe, and it’s incredibly minor, is that I wish there was just a little bit more of it to love. I have no hesitations about recommending this game for just about everyone.

    Stylish action and surprisingly deep storytelling are the two main pillars of an extraordinary action game. Katana ZERO is a must have and probably one of the best game published by the iconic Devolver Digital. It's fun, smart and challenging in the best way possible.

    Katana ZERO is a real success. A cryptic scenario well brought on, very fine gameplay, generous without being frustrating, the visuals are delightful, the soundtrack is funny and everything is magestically orchestrated. It is difficult to blame anything after the baby of Askiisoft, maybe a lack of a Time Attack mode that would match perfectly with the genre.

    If you're not tired of violent Devolver Digital Games in Pixel Art, then Katana Zero ticks all the right boxes to offer a pleasant experience, with a very good OST and a pretty solid gameplay. Even though the game is short, it's low pricing and replay value for speedrunners makes it a nice investment.

    Katana Zero is a short but sweet experience that captures the stylistic flair of Hotline Miami mixed with a cyberpunk theme, while making a name for itself with its polished gameplay but without feeling tedious or overstaying its welcome. It’s a title that left me satisfied, but not amazed. Despite a slight lack of challenge and nuance, the game provided a fun, fast-paced experience that kept me hooked from beginning to end.

    Katana Zero is a fantastic 2D action game, it's a great stealth game, and it has an interesting story and universe. The action is fast, fluid, and will have you coming back for more over and over again. But this is just a taste of what could be.

    I will post my steam review here:

    Katana Zero has it all. It's filled to the brim with flashy, action packed levels that reward creative thinking and experimentation. The intense, futuristic soundtrack fits well with the frantic gameplay and stylish neo-noir pixel art. The game also happens to boast a surprisingly thrilling story that includes time-travel, assassins, and government conspiracies. Normal playthroughs of this game will take anywhere from 8-12 hours and can continue to challenge players afterwards with an additional hard mode. There are also multiple endings, secret weapon unlocks, and an additional speedrun mode for players looking to really master Katana Zero. For $15 you can't get a better deal.

    Definitely worth playing. Magnificent and well-developed plot, beautiful neo-noir and a bit cyberpunk world, dynamic gameplay, amazing pixelDefinitely worth playing. Magnificent and well-developed plot, beautiful neo-noir and a bit cyberpunk world, dynamic gameplay, amazing pixel graphics (one of the best I've ever seen - only Hyper Light Drifter seem to look nicer) and overwhelmingly cool both darksynth and classical OST. All the way Hotline Miami fans like it. The second part, to my mind, will bring us answers - as well as new questions - and it will definitely influence the huge theorycraft possibilities. I see this game in a few years as a pixel-slasher classics, among the masterpieces like Hyper Light Drifter and Hotline Miami. The only minuses are overall shortness (4 to 8 hours) and a bit repetitive gameplay - however, you will enjoy it. Expand
