Critic Reviews for Double Kick Heroes
Double Kick Heroes is a good game, even a great game if you're a metalhead. The artwork portrays a varied post-apocalyptic wasteland as you race across the world battling all sorts of enemies with the power of metal. The soundtrack holds its own and is worth a listen even outside the game. If you like metal or zombies in any way you will thoroughly enjoy this game and the unique combination of the two.
There's plenty to commend Double Kick Heroes for; it's an ambitious game, with great-looking pixel graphics, plenty of songs and modes, an enjoyable story and a general vigour to it that underpins its heavy metal aesthetic very appealingly. Unfortunately, we feel like it tries to do a little too much and ends up being rather confusing and slapdash in execution. We found the central rhythm-action gameplay to be the worst part, and that's not a great thing in any game. The disappointing soundtrack only compounded this problem, but we do appreciate that it's going to be a matter of taste in this regard. This leads us to a bit of a conundrum; Double Kick Heroes clearly has an enormous amount of love poured into it, but it's not enough for an unqualified recommendation when we just didn't quite have enough fun with it. A sequel could refine its more confused elements into something wonderful, but for the time being, you may get a (Double) kick out of this effort.
Double Kick Heroes is an explosive action rhythm-based game filled with original and licensed metal music to enjoy. Take on an active role of driving and shooting with the Gundillac, and double kicking your way through each epic song. Tour with your bandmates, kill the undead, and journey into hell itself. Feast on all that is metal, with over the top violence, foul language, and insane metal music, all with satirical wit. You really won't find any other game quite like this. Get out there and SHRED!!!
