Can this game look more generic? Suda51 is probably the most overrated person in the gaming industry.
Yes, the cheerleader with a sparkly chainsaw cutting zombies in half is so generic.
The fact that it's a cheerleader chainsawing the zombies instead of a standard scowly man is not enough to save it from banality.
I don't think that word means what you think it means.
Anyone who thinks a scantily-clad sexpot using a large weapon to kill things is something new has apparently not heard of this thing called "Japan."
Everything about this game suddenly makes 100x more sense knowing that gunn was behind the writing.

But my question is: Is this game any good?
I like hack n' slash and beat 'em ups. I don't mind if a game has the same damn story as every other flippin' game in existence. I like charm, fun and gameplay. Then again, I haven't played a lot of new games and have no idea who the Hell James Gunn is.
Wait, you want to actually talk about the game itself?
Are you a misogynist?
While not exactly cheerleaders, the Onechanbara games are more or less the same concept: hot girls in tiny outfits cutting zombies. I mean, this is just lazy in every way, not just for the zombies, but even the fanservice is lazy.
Suda 51 had very little to do with this. FYI.

Stanley, you really can't believe that? Shadows of the Damned was basically Resident Evil 4 : Grindhouse Edition, but since RE4 was already crammed full of chainsaws, over-the-top violence and cornball acting, all they could think to "add" to it was more shitty sex jokes than the entire [Adjective] Movie franchise. Motherfucking dick jokes ruined hell, and I never thought I would ever type that.
It had its moments. I particularly liked the lamp fish just for its utterly weird music, the storybook readings, and the papercraft shmup levels-- just not enough to go through the whole package again.

:( That sucks to hear. I usually don't mind fanservice or immaturity a whole lot; but if that's all a game has to offer, then it must not be able to stand on it's own two feet. I don't really follow games anymore but I do like surprises. Oh well.
The main draw of the game isn't the setting as much as the fact that it's Suda 51's take on that setting. So, it's got more to do with what you think of Suda 51 than what you think of fanservice or however you want to describe it.

Oh...Well I'll probably just pass. It doesn't sound like it's worth my time :P
Make no mistake, I love me a good beat-em-up no matter what the story or theme.
But the fact that she's really stupid and says things like "OMFG" all the time? I don't think I'd last past the first level. Well, unless the mechanics more than made up for that, and by "more than made up for that" I mean that I could button-mash all day because I absolutely suck at video games.
