Hyper-stylized hack n slash from Suda51, nuff said

Fast paced, flashy art style and weird, it's your expected affair from Suda51, although this one is really horny (by request of the publisher if I heard right). Gameplay starts off alright, nothing too special, but when it gets really good is when you unlock more abilities and generally just have different and stronger enemies to deal with at the same time. One major flaw with the port is that it's locked at 30 fps, and trust me, 30 fps in this game is just painful, so just check out a guide on steam on how to unlock the framerate and then you're golden.

Really great work about the clash of hedonism and nihilism, of the individual's ego and ambition. I have never found such an experience in the medium before in terms of theme. Gameplay is similar to Devil May Cry, though not with the depth of the Capcom franchise. In terms of visuals, its is outstanding and the characters looks badass. In regards to its main flaws, it is sometimes buggy and locked at 30fps with some crashes. Regardless, i have not had many of these problems as other players that i have read online.
