If there is one thing I can say as a stone cold fact, it's that games featuring I.P.s have dramatically improved over the last couple years. With that in mind, I present death note: confrontation.
Deathnote is a Japanese manga series written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata. In the game, the mysterious killer Kira has managed to take another life. Baffled by Kira's ability to strike anyone, anywhere seemingly, Interpol has called in the legendary detective "L." Now the cat and mouse game begins: L must feed Kira specific targets to deduce Kira's location, and ultimately his identity. Meanwhile, Kira continues to enact his supernatural brand of homicidal justice, racing toward completing his list and disappearing without a trace.
Death Note: Confrontation is a two-player game in which one player takes on the role of L, trying to locate and capture Kira, and the other plays as Kira, punishing those he sees deserving of the ultimate penalty. Each player uses their character's specified notebook and either, as L, reveals criminal targets and to systematically locate Kira, or, as Kira, eliminates those targets to gain enough victory points.
o if you are already a fan of death note, I think this is an easy purchase. It gives you a chance to play out the story of the series in an exciting way.
But what if you are not a fan or you don't know the series. First off the game is violent, there is no denying that. This is not a casual game. You will be murdering people or stopping murders. The ages 16+ on the box is right on the money for this for this game. Being a two-player game, you have to have another person who is willing to be invested in the game play; the intensity will ramp up with each passing round. It becomes all about the chase and the race against the clock. This is by no means a light game. There is a ton a lot on for such a small game. And between phases one and two more elements are added to the game. If your looking for an intense hidden movement game I think you this is your game for 2018, regardless if you know the I.P. or not.
