    An interesting title which has some good points on its playability over the combat system and game flow but simple in every other aspect.

    Dead or School is a well-done 2.5d hack and slash game set beneath a ruined Tokyo. Coincidentally topical in terms of a virus ravaging the population. Well worth playing at any rate.

    Despite some concessions, Dead or School is fun, humorous and packed with varied, satisfying combat. If that's your jam and appreciate an original plot, Dead or School belongs in your collection.

    As something of a budget entry into the same genre occupied by Onechanbara, Dead or School is decent fun. Being a budget game it struggles to maintain a consistency in tone and experience, but a solid loot and upgrade system, some great boss fights, and a good sense of humour, all help to see it through.

    Dead or School is a pretty good game with a strange and artisanal design, but quite deductive after all.

    This is a decent metroidvania, quite limited by its indie budget, that targets “ecchi” fans. Unless you’re looking for this specific theme, there are many other better metroidvanias out there.

    Visually ugly with inelegant, outdated gameplay, Dead or School is flunking all of its classes.
