This PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game is the result of collaboration between Goichi Suda (No More Heroes series) and Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil series), and will combine the styles of the two designers, namely the “punk rock” edge of the former and the “psychological action thriller” of the latter.
When evil demonic creatures kidnap Garcia Hotspur’s girlfriend, it’s up to the Mexican demon hunter to travel to the City of the Damned AKA Hell to get her back. Aided by a former demon called Johnson with the ability to transform into an array of vicious weapons, Garcia will once again take on the mantel of “demon hunter” and rip apart the horrifying forces of the underworld to protect what he loves most.
Lets jump into the video review shall we?
