Sad to see that it wasn't as fun as it looked like it could be. The attacks, upgrades, and overall atmosphere you'd think would combine for a pretty decent game, but it's disappointing to see that it was an overall boring experience gameplay wise. Figured the themes it puts out would be found throughout, in both visuals and dialogue though. I'm pretty much with you where when I play games like that it just feels a bit, well, odd. Usually to the point where I just try to ignore it and focus on other areas of the game while making a run through. =P

Good review kik36!

I do personally disagree with the review. I would give it a lot higher than a 5/10. Probably about a 9/10. I thought it was a pretty fun game with a lot of replay value. There seems to be very mixed opinions about this game.

The outdated graphics is probably because it kinda gives out a comic Book feeling to it, because some scenes have Comic Book style drawings in them.

And the whole game kinda reminds me of Arcade hall style of gaming, Graphics could be done intentionally to give that 80's, 90's vibe to it.

I still going to buy this game, though, what might be boring and immature for one, can be great fun for another.

Yeah, they probably made the graphics like that on purpose, now that you mention that. Good point. I don't regret the $45 I spent for this game.

I just bought the game today, it's now installing the new version update for the PS3 at the moment I type this.

You know, this game seems hard to get, only one copy was in the shelves, lucky me that one was mine to take.
Still, seems like there's not enough high hopes for this game, unlike Call of Duty or GTA or any big franchise game, they don't really fill up a whole section of a shelf with this game.

Quite a late review, but I agree with most points. I was really looking forward to this game. I love cheerleaders, and I love killing zombies, so this seemed like the perfect match. But the game does fail in a lot of ways.
I don't really care about graphics, so I'm going to totally ignore that section.
I did find faults with the gameplay though, which y'know is kind of a big deal. You can easily play through this game spamming the chainsaw attack with a few dodges thrown in, which means there isn't really an incentive to unlock the bigger combos. Plus attacks don't really seem to flow together...there is a lot of stuttering in Juliet's movement.
The camera sucks too. I don't know if you can change the camera speed, but I found it to be just too clunky, actually working against you at some points.
There are good points though:
Juliet as a character was cute, as well as Nick (I looove Nick!), but others are either forgettable or simply annoying.
The music is FANTASTIC! Best thing about the game imo.
Props for the devs at least trying to vary the gameplay with the elevator maze etc.

So I guess for me at least...I'd give the game a 6. Still enjoyable if you're able to turn your brain off and focus on the pretty colours and awesome music.

Yeah, I noticed.

After playing the game today, I do have some trouble getting the hang with controlling Juliet, this game surely earns the title of Button Mashing, since I'm been doing that in the battles, because if you use one button more then twice, then you might get attacked.

Sometimes it's easy when it's a couple of zombies, just jump, and then dropkick them, and then slice their head off.
But going against 30 zombies, then I'm like pressing all buttons randomly.

Shooting with the blaster is sometimes clunky, sometimes it autoaims, sometimes it doesn't.
Sometimes it's aiming at somehting you don't want to aim at, like with the Baseball bit, I'm trying to aim at around Nick, for any Zombies appearing closely to him, yet somehow I'm aiming automatically at a zombie that's further away from Nick and off-screen, so I'm seeing myself turning left or right completely away from facing Nick.

I could turn it off, but manually aiming is too slow.

I'm also guesing I'm too used to Batman's fighting flow, in the Arkham Games, Unlike Batman, Juliet doesn't really leap far off from one zombie to another, unless they're close by, then she might not hit them.

Gameplay has some minor faults, but for the rest it's fun.

I love the music.
Great soundtrack, although, at one point I kinda lowered the volume of the music, because after a bunch of hours listening to Rocking blasting music, I sure wanted to give my ears a bit of a break.

I kinda digged the level with the 1980's style of video games, Pacman, ping pong, and such you had to go through.


I do have to say, this game sure has some brand and company names being distributed through some lines.
I heard things like, YouTube, Myspace, Facebook, Amazon, Volvo, not to mention names of Celebrities, Ashton Kutcher, and a Reference to his Punk'd program, Mary Kate and Ashley, Stephen Hawking, even Justin Bieber was mentioned in one of those Comic character introductions, kinda surprised I havent heard someone mentioning Elvis Presley in this game, I'm sure people that played the game know what I mean.

References to movies, like Pirates of the Carribbean, Star Wars, (one of the bosses was influenced by C-3PO).

lol, I don't mind real life things being mentioned in this game, but I'm kinda surprised on the amount of stuff you hear, did they get permission to mentioning Brands like that, or is it a funny way to advertise?


To me this game is kinda like a Cult classic, it's kinda out of the norm, and not many people might get the style of it, but it's kinda strong on it's own, but kinda an outsider, but in a way it sure has somehting special about it.

Yeah, most of these types of games aren't that popular these days. Personally, I'll take these kinds of games over the most popular kinds of games these days any day, such as FPS games and RPG games.

Ohhh yeah, a lot of people are having that problem. One of the most frustrating sections in the game, purely because of the shittiness of the auto-aim.

And I understand what youre talking about in the rest of your post. The game crams a whole lot of pop-culture in, which is cool. I loved how Juliet mistook the auto-tune guy for speaking like Stephen Hawking.

Honestly I bought the game because I recently bought Shadow's of the Damned and like the comedy to it, so I figured why not? I have not been let down in the slightest.

It may seem mundane, but one of, if not my favorite parts of the game are the lines
"What's your favorite color Nick?"
"Blue... Wait... No Green."
"I Love learning things about you!"
"I *bleep*ed up it's Yellow."

That and the whole "Speaking Japanese" part. Cracked up.

Juliet being so overly positive while Nick is firmly grounded in reality, or what is left of it, just works so well. I am stuck now trying to buy all the outfits, only have a bikini and the maid costumes left to get. Honestly, if you get the game expecting to have fun slashing through zombies in a wacky hack and slash game you won't be dissappointed, well worth the full price in my opinion.

lol, I laughed the most when Nick mentioned a Mario Reference.

"If a little dude, with a red cap and blue overalls pops out at me, I swear, I'm gonna vomit all over this place!"

The comedy in the game is just so perfect lol. It honestly makes the game a must have for me.
