Anarchy Reigns

DarkStation
25 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Even if you’re like me and don’t end up getting hooked on the online, Anarchy Reigns is a rock-solid action game with combo-based combat you can really chew on, rad boss encounters, and one of the more ludicrous stories to come along in games for some time. This is a hardcore Japanese action game, through and through. Its rigid, uncompromising mission structure can be less than accommodating but nonetheless charming.

Anarchy Reigns Review

Game Over Online
24 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I keep changing my mind on Anarchy Reigns . It’s one of those misleading games that isn’t what it looks like at first. When I picked it up, I was thinking it was a modern take on old-fashioned arcade beat-’em-ups, along with a large amount of that idiosyncratic character design you get from Platinum Games. The more I play it, though, the less I think of it as a beat-’em-up.

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

About.com
1 January 2013
  • 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.
