Killer Is Dead: Nightmare Edition, developer Suda51's spiritual successor to Killer 7, boasts impressive, dark visuals and exciting combat, but ho-hum enemy and level design prevent it from slaying the competition.

Killer Is Dead is a fresh concept wrapped around a generic core, and flavored with a helping of misogyny

There is an audience out there for 'Killer Is Dead', certainly; but that audience is only going to be the most diehard fans of Suda51's work. The game is wrapped up with a wonderful art style and some good voice work and music, but the stilted, nonsensical storytelling is bound to drive away a lot of the audience that would care to enjoy it. Add in the repetitive nature of battling, which only really shines during certain bosses, and 'Killer is Dead' can be both too monotonous and spontaneous to fully enjoy. Unless you're a huge fan of the likes of Suda51's laster action titles, stay away from 'Killer Is Dead.'
