    Default NeverDead


    Just a some hard hours into NeverDead's campaign, its title abruptly sounds much less as a possibleboon as compared to a blotted out threat. By that point, thedevelopers at Rebellion have long since displayed their hand. Youhave watched each mechanic, concept, and joke the game has toproffer, but you however have several more hours of those accuratethings to peg away via.


    The same cheesy one-liners, the samecumbersome combat sequences, the same idiotic puzzle sequences, iteverything only holds repeating itself for hours and hours till yetit eventually acquires about to tossing out two of the mostpoorly-planned boss fights in remember memory. By the time you areready for NeverDead's run to be above on, it would not be anywherenear so. It only...would not...die.


    That is may be fitting, afforded thatNever Dead's conception of hereafter is something akin to Sisypheantorment. Its lead character, the blandly grizzled Bryce Boltzmann,has lived for centuries thanks to an ill-defined curse by few mannerof demonic asshole. When mortal injury strikes Bryce, he does not toomuch acquire hurt like he does just kind of burst apart at the seams. That's Bryce in a nutshell.

    That is even Never Dead's soledistinction. Rebellion has centered the entirety of this sharplyunpleasant character action game's plan around Bryce's constantlycrumbling frame. The slightest brush from a nearby enemy will sendany number of limbs flying, which Bryce then has to scramble to pick support. It is also nuttier when Bryce's skull pops off, in that youabruptly detect yourself in control of a severed head that seems alittle bit as what would happen if a Katamari could verbally curseits own existence.


    When you are not frantically attemptingto reassemble yourself, you are fighting off generically grotesquedemon grunts in rooms that receive those wonderful magical demonbarriers that block the exit till yet you have killed each last oneof them, as well as the "womb" that barfs them outceaselessly until you destroy it.


    You can select to do thus either withthe game's clunky gun combat--aiming barely functions at all unlessyou go into the more precise aiming way, which even occurs to slowyou down vastly--or apply Bryce's comically oversized sword, whichyou can not swing unless you press the lock-on button, and then applythe right analog stick to swing with. Imagine the shot stick in EA'sNHL series, but about a thousand times less functional; that is theidea here.
