It has as much flavor and substance as a lollipop, that's for sure.

Yeah, I might get it if it were 15-20 bucks, but there just isn't enough gameplay to make it worth 60.
Crude, violent and profane... and I enjoyed every moment of it.
First off, holy spambots batman! Second, I can definitely see what you are saying jared. One of my fears fothis game was that while it may look fun and exciting there wasn't going to be enough in the game to make it long lasting unlike no more heroes. Since it is suda 51 I will give it a try for sure. Nice review. Calling it like it is.
i 2nd this notion
Violence itself isn't degariding or insulting. They do take it a little over the top with the harrasment of the main character, She even tryes to pull her skirt down when you angle the camera low enough. This isn't how you make a sexy game, Bayonetta got it right, end of story.
How can you call this game degrading and insulting but don't say anything about other violent games like GTA? So just because its a girl and not a guy its insulting? Who are you to say what is degrading for women? If it were a male protagonist you wouldn't say that. Stop being hypocrites you sound like losers who can't get gf's.
So, I guess this means that it doesn't stack up to No More Heroes?
I was expecting a 5 point score range. usually these scores are 2 points less than other sites, and I can usually gauge the score by how the review is spoken too.
this crap costs 60 bucks?? F-THAT!!
true, as I've said elsewhere though gamefly is the only rental outlet that carries it and the wait there could be months and months as the availability has been low since it came out.
Jokes and Minigames kill the game and the stiff control i'll just play No More Hero again and call it a weekend
This games combat looks way too stiff compared to other games like Devil May Cry.
I was about to say the same thing.
I am not impressed with the game simply because it features zombies...apparently the "flavor of gaming" for this year. And the fact that the main character is a cheerleader, as well as being portrayed as the stereotype of such individuals. I might rent it, just to give it a try but I seriously doubt I would ever commit to purchasing it.
I'll probably get this game when it's cheaper.
Yes because Jared loves FPS games.
Should be worth playing, just to hear Bubbles and Twilight Sparkles shouting obscenity
From some gameplay videos I have seen I will agree with Jared on this but could have clarified how the Platinum Medals unlock different Costumes for the main character to wear. For example 25 Platinum Medals unlocks the Shiro Outfit, the Shiro outfit is inspired by an Anime character of the same name from Deadman Wonderland(currently running on Toonami) in a cruel twist of fate Shiro is both a Protagonist and an Antagonist at the same exact time but I won't say how.
Definitely doesn't seem to be my type of game. Watershocker kept praising it though, so maybe I'll give it a rent.
Teaming up with WB Interactive has not been good on Suda 51. I feel like this and Shadows of the Damned were bogged down by metrics and executive meddling. Great review as always Jared. I appreciate that your reviews consistently focus on the game and don't go of on tangents
