About NeverDead

NeverDead is a third-person action game set in a fantasy and horror-influenced universe where supernatural battles between humans and extraordinary creatures blanket a vast city landscape. Gamers wield a butterfly design-inspired sword and an arsenal of guns to decimate waves of ungodly enemies in the not-too-distant future. The game begins in the waking hours of peace and calm, when the world is under threat of being consumed by a demonic plague. Centuries have passed since the world succumbed to an unforeseen shadow of evil, and a hero was made an immortal by demons. These demons have risen once again in the present day causing unrelenting mayhem reinforced by destructible environments within the game. Now using his immortalic regenerative powers re-assembling his own body to evade death, the hero carries out the only salvation the world will know, for he is Never Dead.

Summary

Dismemberment and immortality are quirky enough at first to spark some entertainment, but NeverDead doesn't really have any other legs to stand on.

We like

  • Dismemberment gameplay is entertaining
  • Campy and quirky presentation and writing
  • Some clever boss battles

We dislike

  • Clunky controls, especially swordplay
  • Dull story and lame dialogue
  • Boring combat and slow weapon transition

Modern games require all gears working in perfect harmony to achieve greatness, and if it relies on that single gag, chances are it’s going to trip on itself and fall straight on its face. That is the case for NeverDead, a game that sees the main character as a bit of a Mr. Potato Head, complete with limbs and a head that easily detach...
