I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

The Good: Deep story of politics and the paranormal, great voice acting, graphical style, game play is like no other

The Bad: The "on rails" movement may turn a lot of people off, the story can get kind of confusing if you don't know anything about politics

I was very doubtful about this game and just passed it up until now. Once you dig into Killer7 you're swimming through a plot of deep politics and a weird paranormal setting. You are seven of the Smiths who are hired assassins for the government...or so it seems. The gameplay is very different from what you're used to. You press A and the game is "on rails". You choose which way you want to go by hold the analog stick in a direction and selecting the destination with A. This makes things a lot easier and lets the gamers concentrate on the puzzle solving and story. Use you the characters to solve the puzzles such as Kaede slitting her wrists to spray blood everywhere and call Harman Smith's ex wife to blast open invisible barricades...yeah I know WTF?! You can use Coyote to jump up high places and Mask De Smith to blast open cracked walls.
                 Some of the puzzles involve getting a certain amount of objects, deciphering messages etc. You kill the Smiles by hitting weak points on them and there are dozens of variants. You have to hold down R and then scan with L and shoot their weak points. The voice acting is top notch and the graphics have a great cell shaded style to them. It's really hard to explain this game unless you play it. The game sports unique boss fights and is a perfect length of 12-14 hours. If you're bored with you're Wii check out Killer7 and you won't regret it.
