KILL la KILL - IF
Kill la Kill The Game: IF is a unique title for sure. It lacks depth and breadth but makes up for it in wackiness and style. Fans of the anime will likely enjoy it, but fighting game fans in general will most likely pass this one by. There just isn’t enough here to make it stand out among the crowd. One thing I can say about it though is that nothing is ever likely to be as bonkers as far as fighting games go…oh who am I kidding?
A belated attempt to shift the epic fights from the anime to the format of arena fighting game once again failed. Like most similar games, Kill la Kill the Game: IF suffers from the primitiveness of the gameplay and the lack of content. Nice characters and special techniques looks good, and if you do not play normal fighting games, but love the original Kill la Kill, then you can try this game. All the others may pass by or can watch the original anime, which is still relevant. Surprisingly, the project was supervised by the masters of Arc System Works, who have a brilliant adaptation of Dragon Ball...

Kill la Kill: IF's incredable animations and presentation can't save it from being a repetitive fighter that outstays it's welcome after just a few hours.
Kill la Kill - If certainly looks the part, but once you're past the striking art style and eye-popping visuals, it's only a matter of time until the gameplay falls flat. As a bombastic anime fighter it can hold up for at least a few rounds with friends, but beyond that, this is a lacking release, both in terms of mechanical balance and bang for your buck.
I'm sorry Kill la Kill fans, but IF is not the game you were waiting for.
Due to its pleasant, playful, and technical qualities, it cannot be denied that Kill la Kill-IF has a certain charm

Kill La Kill - IF is a pretty descent fighting game, with a good but very simplistic gameplay, a new alternative story well told, but the lack of content is obvious. Fans only.

Kill la Kill: IF is a fighting game based on the animation series of the same name and it does a very good job at following its source material, as the game often feels like a playable version of the animation series, down to its plot and charismatic characters. Its simple gameplay mechanics will be quickly assimilated by most players but the experience feels a bit shallow, not to mention short, as the game's main play modes do not go beyond a few hours. That doesn't stand in the way of Kill la Kill: IF being a very recommended option for fans of the series.

Much like the anime that came before it, Kill la Kill: the Game is weird, wild, and loud, but also a bit shallow. But unlike the anime, the Game doesn’t have the same feeling of scale to it, the same feeling of unrestrained creators working with a healthy budget and top-tier industry names.
Unless you're a fan of the anime, Kill La Kill: IF is not the game for you. While the story mode is beautifully presented, it's not as lengthy or engaging as the hours-long experiences offered by other arena fighters. While the potential of an Arc System Works arena fighter sounds promising, this 3D fighting game ends up being a bigger disappointment than many of its contemporaries. The visuals are pristine, the animation is gorgeous, but everything else feels barren. Kill La Kill: IF feels like a budget title – too bad it costs $50.
