Anarchy Reigns Review | Blueprint for a Beating

New Gamer Nation
15 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Anarchy Reigns is a respectable attempt at reviving the beat ‘em up genre, and at a bargain price of $30, it’s definitely worth a pickup for even the casual fan. The visuals and style presented instantly connect the player with this new IP, but it falls short in the combat’s execution and ends up feeling like a “woulda, shoulda, coulda” scenario. Platinum Games has developed a fine blueprint.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: I’m all for over-the-top insanity in my action games. I can appreciate ridiculous amounts of flashy, highly stylized combat mixed with a dash of twisted craziness. If I take on a giant squid and a whole lot of nasty crap happens, I’m gonna giggle.

Anarchy Reigns

GameTrailers
11 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Coming out swinging with a budget pricetag and a wild cast of characters, Anarchy Reigns is a forceful beat’em up where distinctively-styled badasses turn their eyes toward brutal online competition. Does this Platinum Games project find the secret formula for a genre that used to dominate the 2D era, or are the good ideas lost in the chaos? Beginning with an altercation in a bar, the game’s offline action begins with a choice between one of two characters, Jack or Leo.

Anarchy Reigns PS3 Review

  • Conclusion: Anarchy Reigns Image © Sega The first game of 2013 is a modestly successful one for the right audience. It won't break any molds or appeal too far from its genre but it worked better than I expected given the multiple delays, off-season release date, and the number of generic multiplayers I've played over the years. I'll come back to "Anarchy Reigns" and enjoy the insanity. Disclosure: A review copy was provided by the publisher.

Anarchy Reigns Review

AusGamers
15 January 2013
  • Conclusion: None of this means that it isn’t hugely enjoyable though – every single game I got into was fun, and the franticness of it all means that even if you’re terrible you’ll have a chance to land a few good hits and feel good about it. It’s most reminiscent of Power Stone on the Dreamcast, with huge arenas and several events that can briefly change the whole game up (for instance, in one map a Kraken may appear during a free-for-all, and if all the players put their...
