The hero "KILLER IS DEAD" acts in the world of the near future. This world is very similar to ours but still different. The name of the hero is Mondo Zappa, and he is the executioner, the executor of the death sentences. His goal - to execute the notorious criminals scattered all over the world and beyond. His right hand is real, he uses it to wield a sword. And the left, artificial hand has different weapons.
The game includes twelve missions: from short linear levels to long levels that require exploration. There are three types of missions: the main ones that move the game forward, missions inside the main ones and missions of «Scarlett" type, in which a female supporting character with this name appears.
The edition of Nightmare is distinguished by a new mode of complexity. In this mode, the enemies can be defeated only by a few specific attacks, the game requires more skill here. These attacks can be opened by inflicting a series of blows on the opponent and not getting a blow at the same time. Attacks can be combined with each other.
After the third episode, the "Smooth Operator" add-on is unlocked.
Тhere is also a "Theater Mode" to review the videos and learn from his gaming experience.

Killer is Dead - Nightmare Edition reviews and comments

Those who know AND love SUDA51 will definitely like the Game. The Hack n Slay Gameplay Isn't the Best I've ever played, but it's rock solid. The Game shines more with the unique "art style," the concentrated Action and the curious Story. The Game is extremely cheap to have on various Sites, but also for €5am in the Steam Sale it's a good Deal!

This game is made for persons who absolutly have no idea what they are doing... but still succeed! Tought u seen crazy stuff? Then u never played this game before. Story is ok (no idea what is going on). gore is on point and the fighting is excellent. characters are weird as ♥♥♥♥ but cool. Even a damn Dating option in this game (yes, really). Needs further customizations for 60 fps. 7/10

A successful game that is a bit different from other games. SUDA 51 is one of the studios that also ventures to ewasother (shadow of the demand) and also at KILLER IS DEAD they have once again ventured into something else. Socross Graphics as well as syle, the game differs from everyone else. It's not the AAA title now but it's fun and you have something other than what you find everywhere, that makes the Game sympathetic

A nice Game at: 1st Glance a somewhat confusing Story, but you have the Game at your disposal by one of the theater mode, where you can watch the Videos again and learn what else about the Characters. For the People who have the Bug in Mission 3 (This Infinite Loading time) there is also a Solution goes to the Page http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Killer_Is_Dead and look At section with "Cannot pass the Third boss." If this is done, the Hunt can finally go on.

Very nice game for everyone who likes devil may cry. Anyone who knows lollypop chainsaw will be able to notice some parallel ones. The flirt minispiel is waste but at least 3 times necessary with it, you get all the weapons. I liked the fight system the most. There are no proper kombos alla "X, A, X, A.Y, Y" or anything like that but it counts good timing and man shouldn't be hit. The story is nice but the best thing about it is the thoroughly well-designed opponents of the end-of-date. The forum says how to get the 30 fps lock removed and I also played in 1440p per ini change.

One of the few Games I've envied Console Gamers around. Until now! Or still ... The Porting of the "Suda51" game has been successful. Can Be easily controlled with M & K, partly because the Combat System is not Rocket Science. But I Like it very well, the Counter-mechanics would also be better for an AC. Great are Style & Story! Certainly not to everyone's Taste, but you finally get something Unusual offered again. Like an overturned Anime with more good Ideas and Depth than it seems. It's just a shame that the developer's other Titles are not (yet?) likely to be ported ...
Two things I need to say at first. You need a controller and a computer that will properly run the game. It’s amazing but it’ll be hard to play it with a mouse and a keyboard. But with controller it’s controlled smoothly and easily. The story is wonderful just like in every Suda’s game. So, highly recommended with these two little requirements.  
My main emotion for this game is annoyance. The camera moves awful. Some graphic decisions are TOO weird and don’t fit the game. Cut scenes are boring. The game in general is meh. 
Came expecting a bit of enjoyment similar to No More Heroes'. Never found it.
The best adjective to describe the game is ‘stylish’. Fighting feel really good. The PC versions has some drawbacks though as you can’t remap controllers and you can’t tweak with the graphics a lot (however you can probably do it with an ini file).
