Kileak: The Blood (キリーク・ザ・ブラッド Kirīku za Buraddo), or Kileak: The DNA Imperative in North America, is a mecha-themed first-person shooter by Genki and Sony Music Entertainment. It is a launch title for the PlayStation, released in 1995.
In September 2015, both this game and its sequel, Epidemic, are made available in the Japanese PlayStation Network.
In the year 2038, the International Peacekeeping Force sends an elite mecha team to investigate a South Pole research facility commanded by Dr. Kim. When the helicopter carrying the mecha are destroyed, it‘s up to the player, Matt Coda, to continue the mission and stop Dr. Kim from unleashing his army of genetically engineered alien mutants.
Why It Sucks
- Slow-paced and boring gameplay.
- Poor and repetitive level design.
- Weak, uninspired, and just plain terrible story that makes no sense.
- Poor sound design, which has been compared to "Brian Eno on valium" by the Official UK PlayStation Magazine.
- Hit-and-miss mecha design, courtesy of Kow Yokoyama of Maschinen Krieger ZbV3000/SF3D fame.
- Your "partner", Carlos, is pretty much useless. All he does is talk to you every once in a while and he never once showed up physically to help you.
- Live-action scenes that can be off-putting due to effortless lip-syncing.
- Stiff and limited controls which haven’t aged well.
Saikyo Ki, a GameFAQs user, gave this game a 1/5 stars, describing it to be "more of a torture device than a game".
