Review: Killer7

November 28, 2018 1 min read

Over the last decade, gaming auteur Suda51 has become a force to be reckoned with. His games have subverted standard video game tropes and provided some of the zaniest and most esoteric experiences around. Pick any random title from his catalog and you'll be playing a game that is distinctly Suda51.

While his career in the video game industry is much longer than that, his first big international release was the cult classic Killer7. Initially planned as one of the "Capcom Five" for the GameCube, the game saw a release on Sony's PS2 alongside Nintendo's ill-fated lunchbox and was met with some very mixed reception. People either loved it or hated it, with no real in between.

Having never played the title before, I was intrigued at the chance to see where Suda51 finally made his crossover from developing strictly Japanese games. While my opinion is a bit mixed, I can definitely say that this feels like something that only Suda51 could create.
