Bright Hub takes cult classic Killer7 for a spin to decide if the title still holds up to gaming's ever-changing standards. Does the game still look and play as good as it did back in 2005?
ive heard a lot about it but never got around to buying it i might need to dust off the old PS2 or finally get some use for my gamecube :D actually ill just torrent it and run it in HD in dolphin :D
You can buiy the GameCube version for like $6. It's an awesome game and it still holds up incredibly well today. Do yourself a favor and play this bizarre title.
I think I might just do that, assuming you are the person who wrote the article it was a good read
Thanks. Yeah, I wrote this editorial. Glad you enjoyed it. I'd recommend Killer7 over a number of recent games.
Lol just play it on PC in 1080p with dolphin. No point buying an old console to play the game. Actually BC is a fort of the PC. There are many classics currently that are simply unplayable because not many people have a working PS2, Game cube or whatever. Having a modern PC is an awesome decision for any gamer today, as it open a window to play old PC games(thousands of those out there), any console aside the PS3 and Xbox 360. Current gen games are cheaper on PC too and run better then any console and will in the future be playable when next gen consoles may not play the games we have today, just like XBox 360 or PS3 wont play games from last gen. Any one looking to build a huge library of games for cheap should definetly be looking to make a gaming PC.
Thats what I did. Then again I also have PS3, 360 and I keep the PS2 because some games don't even work properly on PCSX2. Dolphin is so much better but the again PS2 is sort of hard to emulate considering that it has such a strange architecture, so yeah! I don't miss any game having PC 360 PS3 and Dolphin :P No More Heroes ftw... I actually bought the game even though I don;t have a wii. Suda51 makes the best games! I am supporting him and not Nintendo :P f that!
well he can still buy the gamecube version for cheap and then play it on emu . Hell due to my bro's house burglary a while ago , i dont even have the wii anymore . But i still buy games i want and can enjoy them HD . I agree with you that pc rocks for that kind of use but it doesnt have to be a full blown gateway to sheer piracy (not that you implied it anyway mind you) . I do love firing up the old 2d fighters , especially kof , when in contrast con artists like snk playmore try to resell the same games every year and every compilations , without even bothering itself to use filters dating as far back as snes emu , or even adding trophies . And we aint even talking about some oldie coming back from the grave , but some frickin' games re-released almost the same at least 3 time each gen and consoles since the ps1 .
killer 7 was a really great game. it was unique and i really haven't played anything like it. ive still got my gamecube copy and ill play it on my wii every now and then. definitely holds up even today.
I'm impressed at how well the developers were able to blend all those gameplay elements.
Ha, I just beat it too. Excellent game, though a little abstract. Oh Suda51...
That's the beauty of games with an actual design and art style . Pure realism driven games , especially fps , just become obsolete and outdated rather quickly
Awesome game, I would like to play a sequel or/and a HD remake possibly compatible with the Move.
ive always thought the art direction was cool. one of those titles i missed
I don't seen any reason not to pick Killer7 up. Bought it for $5 in '09 and it's incredibly strange and inventive. I'm a sucker for these kinds of games though.
still my favourite game. the analysis on gamefaqs is pretty righteous too.
Shadows of the Damned should be incredible!
Great game, but I never made heads or tails of the story, weird stuff...
great game, I'll play it again sometime..
Killer 7 is forever a masterpiece, and the guy in the article is comparing apples to oranges by comparing killer & graphics to uncharted. Killer 7 has it's own unique art style, just like no more heroes, Contact, and everything else Suda51 works on
Wasn't comparing the graphics to Uncharted. I just mentioned how the graphics in that series have pretty much set the bar for the current console generation, thus raising gamers' standards considerably since the last gen, where games may not have looked as good but still offered a great sense of artistry. Just thought I'd clarify that. It's not a comparison between the two games, but rather a comparison of generations, which is necessary for this analysis given that I'm trying to showcase how well the game holds up these days.
oh, thanks for clearing that up. But me and my pals will Argue Ratchet Future Perfect and Mario Galaxy 2 also set the bar. Art styles like those age very well, since they are in fantasy worlds. A few years from now people will be comparing uncharted to another more real looking game and will find something to complain about. Take Ocarina of time for example. It's hella blocky now, but it still looks good. So Good that some people who haven't really looked at it recently say the 3DS remake looks the same, because in their mind, that's how they remember it looking, yet when you show them the difference they are like "Oh, Now I see!" But the old one still looks good. What I am saying is Stylized graphics are what I think raise the bar each gen. It's why Wind waker will always look better than Twilight Princess in my book!
Definitely. Visuals with high aesthetic values always remain pleasing to the eyes, while games that offer technical visuals often look outdated by the time a new generation comes along, or in some cases, when the same generation they were developed in ends.
Probably my favourite Gamecube game. Sold my copy and cube long ago, but would definitely like to play through it again. I may grab the PS2 version. How does it compare to the cube version?
