It just doesn’t work as well as it should on a controller, reminding me of how annoying Guitar Hero was on a Dualshock back in 2005. If you decide to play Double Kick Heroes on lower difficulties, you won’t be presented with any semblance of a challenge, but at least you’ll be able to enjoy a pretty funny game with a phenomenal selection of metal bangers.
Double Kick Heroes is a decent rhythm game with plenty of challenge and is considerably tricky to master. It has a fun zombie story line with a nod to Romero’s classics. The metal tracks are decent to listen to if you are a fan of the genre, and it is fun to play along to at the correct difficulty level. It probably would have been easier to play with a makeshift instrument device, but the experience isn’t lessened by playing with a controller.
Double Kick Heroes is a great little game for fans of bashing their buttons and keys along with fast-paced heavy metal, and the zombie aesthetic feels well handled. I like how you’re able to adjust the game a bit to make for a more enjoyable experience that you can handle, and I’d hope to see more guest bands joining to fold in Hellgate. It’s a game that does sometimes feel unforgiving and you should probably get your hand muscles worked up in preparation.
