Grasshopper Manufacture's CEO, Goichi Suda, has made a name for himself with surreal settings and offbeat protagonists. Travis Touchdown joined a league of assassins after winning a beam katana through an online auction (No More Heroes); Garcia Hotspur braved the extents of Hell to rescue his girlfriend alongside a shapeshifting handgun (Shadows of the Damned); and star cheerleader Juliet disemboweled trans-dimensional zombies with help from her boyfriend’s severed head (Lollipop Chainsaw).

The story of KiD has gone from the straight forward nature of Shadows of the Damned (Well, as straight forward as you get with Suda), back to the more obtuse style of Killer7. Upfront the story is a rather confusing mess, but as time goes on you begin to have a loose understanding of the events unfolding before you.

Killer is Dead might as well be the most offensive piece of misogynistic garbage you’ll ever have the pleasure of playing. The deeply ingrained sexist overtures drown out any possible redeeming qualities, if you could stop your gag reflex long enough to notice them. It is not only self evident that Suda 51 hates all women but that degrading them in a public manner is becoming his craft. Everyone should avoid this game at all costs if you have any respect for the female gender and probably burn ...1 out of 2 found this review helpful.
