There are also "minibosses", enemies that are less challenging than bosses but more challenging than regular enemies. Minibosses have the ability to block and counter your attacks, which few other enemies in the game do.The game takes place across several different areas, including a construction site, a graveyard, a pirate ship, and a mall.Between levels you will be placed in this set track missions killing enemies either in car or flying or playing a song and pressing the buttons when you are prompt to do so.The game itself will offer you 10-12 hours of gameplay.

Combat And Character Classes:
You will be fighting with two buttons to string together combinations of light and heavy that kick the enemies ass you can also use grabs to throw the enemies into objects which are gruesome at times,use character-specific special attacks, and pick up and use weapons and also in co-op you can use these a awesome highly damaging team attacks.Each of the five band members has a unique character class, which vary from one another mainly by the special magical attacks, called Anar-chi, that they can use. Anar-chi attacks include Tommy Homicide's ability to summon acid-coated buzzsaws and The Rexecutioner's ability to summon and use a debris-spitting drum kit.you can also upgrade your powers by visiting a tattoo parlor tattoo's can give you special abilities that are character-specific to the one you are playing at the moment.You can also unlock new abilities, including additional combination attacks, group attacks, and the ability to use two weapons at once, by leveling up.

Leveling up:
You use a in game phone to level up in addition to leveling up you can also manage inventory, read emails that explain game mechanics, and scan QR codes that unlock items and give the character money or followers by using the phone.

Story:
The main character of the game is Charlie Murder and he is part of a band named Charlie Murder but Charlie kicks one of the founding members of the band out who is named Paul after he does that charlie starts rising to the top with his new bandmates with Charlies success paul goes into a dark place.He changes his name to Lord Mortimer and forms his own band named Gore Quaffer and makes a deal with a demon.After that Lord Mortimer starts to raise an army of demons and undead to destroy Charlie Murder.At the start of the game u begin in hell as you and your band have been killed so you have to fight your way out of hell when u do that you will wake up you will see that the world is overrun by undead and demons lead by Lord Mortimer then you become the only person that can save the world from that evil and must become a badass to do so.While you are going through the story you will start to see flashbacks of how Charlie rose to fame and how paul became more depressed and how eventually he came to the deal with the demon.

Achievements:
The achievements are pretty mixed up and what I mean by that is they are some that are straightforward and easy to do like getting certain kills with the specific characters and then they are some that are time consuming like getting all the relics which will take a while to do unless you have a friend that has all them who is willing to give them to you.

Pros:
*Great gameplay was never bored playing through the game once.
*Great soundtrack especially if you are into that kind of music which i am.

Cons:
*I never really used the phone unless I was about to level up never really look through the messages because there was no reason to wish there was something cool in the messages about the story or something like that.
*Also when i had alot of stuff in my inventory it was kinda of hard to manage everything.

Final Thoughts:
Charlie Murder was a game that i really enjoyed and would recommend to anyone as i think everyone could enjoy some aspect of the game and i am happy that i exp the game myself so if you have not picked this game yet definitely consider picking this one up.

EDIT: If you leave a negative vote please write in the comments why so I can improve the things that are wrong with the review.
