Bullets, chaos, and fast-paced action are never enough. Iggymob’s Gungrave Gore is a game in the Gungrave series by Trigun’s creator, Yasuhiro Nightow. It looks great, but the controls are stiff and there are other things about it that make it feel like a game from the early 2000s, when its predecessors came out.
Even though it has problems, Gungrave Gore can still fun for people who are interested. Because of its good points, you might be looking for other games that are like it and that you’d like more. Most likely games with over-the-top action, an anime look, old-fashioned gameplay, or other similar features. There are a lot of games with these qualities, which is a good thing.
The first VR game in the series, Gungrave VR, takes place in South City, a city that used to peaceful. But now overrun by Orgmen, who former humans who have been infected with a drug called SEED. Mika Asagi brings Beyond the Grave back to life again so they can stop the Orgmen plague and keep the city from falling apart completely.
Even though Gungrave VR is only playable in VR. It has both first-person and third-person gameplay, so it has a little more variety than you might expect. The game also has a feature called “Reaper Time,” which temporarily slows down time and makes it easier for Grave and Mika to kill groups of enemies. Gungrave VR has a sequel called Gungrave VR U.N., which adds levels that are seen from the side.
Wild Arms 3
Wild Arms 3 is the most accessible game in the Wild Arms series. It’s a great choice for people who want more weapon action and anime-style graphics but would rather play a turn-based game. It was first released for the PlayStation 2, so it still feels like a PlayStation 2 game.
Wild Arms 3 takes place on a planet called Filgaia, which is a barren desert wasteland. The four main characters decide to go off on their own and become drifters until they meet up and take on the corrupt Council of Seven. Wild Arms 3 has battles with magic and the game’s name-giving projectile weapons, which are called ARMS. Be ready for random encounters, puzzles, and other things that are common in JRPGs.
Fist of the North Star Kens Rage
Ken’s Rage is a spin-off of Koei Tecmo’s Dynasty Warriors series. It can only played on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and it is based on Buronson’s popular manga series Fist of the North Star. It can feel a bit like Gungrave because it has an anime style, but you mostly use head-exploding martial arts instead of guns.
Ken’s Rage has a single-player mode called “Legend Mode,” which retells the manga’s story through seven chapters and different missions with different goals. It also has a mode called “Dream Mode,” which can be played with a second player and has “What If” scenarios for each playable character.
Transformers Devastation is like Gungrave Gore in that it is a third-person action game with different melee and ranged weapons that can be used by different characters. Still, it’s much easier to switch between characters, and they aren’t stuck on certain levels. Since it made by Platinum Games, which is mostly known for making character action games, it plays much better.
In Transformers: Devastation, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Grimlock, and Sideswipe go on an adventure to stop Megatron and the Decepticons from “cyberforming” Earth with plasma energy. The game’s license has expired, so you can’t download it unless you’ve already added it to your library. Instead, you should look for a physical copy.
Evil West came out on the same day as Gungrave Gore. It is about one of the last vampire hunters in America, Jesse Rentier, who saves the country from bloodsuckers. Evil West has more than just a few types of guns. It also has a few gadgets and a gauntlet that Jesse can use to punch enemies to death, causing them to explode on the last hit.
Evil West has a single-player campaign and a two-player co-op mode where a friend can play as a second Jesse. This gives you twice as much gory, over-the-top action. Still, it seems strange that it’s a copy of Jesse and not one of his allies in the game.
Devil May Cry HD Collection
The first three games in the Devil May Cry series included in this collection. The games have HD graphics and support for trophies. But other than that, they are just standard ports of PlayStation 2 game. So they still feel a bit like Gungrave Gore and the two Gungrave games on PlayStation 2.
Devil May Cry known for its stylized combat and for coming up with the term “Stylish Action” with its Style Rankings. These give you scores from D to S based on how many different kinds of combos you do. And how many hard ones you do in a row with different guns and other weapons. Despite being older, it can feel a little smoother than the Gungrave series.
The House of the Dead Remake
The House of the Dead Remake is exactly what it sounds like: a complete remake of the 1997 arcade game The House of the Dead. Because the graphics have updated, the characters and enemies look a little bit different than they used to. But some of them look a lot like the enemies in Gungrave Gore.
You can play by yourself in the single-player mode or with a friend in the co-op mode. However, because it’s a lightgun game, you can also play the co-op mode by yourself. Which may feel similar to playing Gungrave VR but with more enemies, campier dialogue, and a different soundtrack.
Remnant: From The Ashes
Remnant: From The Ashes is a third-person shooter set in a post-apocalyptic world where evil beings from another dimension have taken over. However, not all hope lost because humans have been able to create dimension-hopping technology that can help them fight against the evil creatures, find out where they came from, and kill them for good.
Remnant has game mechanics that are similar to those in the Dark Souls series. It also adds ranged weapons like guns, which can changed and improved by collecting different materials. You can also play Happy Wheels with up to three people at the same time, and the game gets harder the more people are there.
