Conclusion: MadWorld is a good experience while it lasts, but is a fairly short game, and will likely last most players about six to seven hours the first time through. Though players can go back to complete 'DeathWatch challenges', fight bosses again, and even get new weapons on second playthroughs, there really isn't much incentive to go through the game more than once.
Conclusion: My initial reservations about Tropico 3 turned out to be completely unfounded. Not only did Haemimont deliver one of the most feature rich management games that I have ever played, they also managed to stay true to the formula that made the original such a joy to play. Getting your island through the difficult early stages is very satisfactory and so is shaping it into a little paradise under the sun during the latter half of the game.
Pros: The original series brought back to life in a superb way.
Cons: None (but say goodbye to your family life for a while).
Bloody, Creative Combat Brings Mature Entertainment to the Wii
22 September 2009
Conclusion: Concept: Everyone must bleed. This game turns the most gut-wrenching kills into ?modest routines
Graphics: A black and white comic book soaked in blood red
Sound: The announcers add hilarious color to each massacre. Beneath their rambling, the game offers a long-winded but original hip-hop score
Playability: The camera coupled with a wayward grasp mechanic makes for some frustrating moments, but the top-notch motion-based functionality is the driving force behind this...
Summary: MadWorld is a playful, absurdist celebration of the playful, absurdist celebration of violence in video games. The world is your playground, as long as your idea of play involves outlandish bloodletting and dismemberment. Each game environment contains creative new hazards to aid the dispatching of your enemies, whether it be impaling them on spikes, churning them through turbine engines, or slinging sign posts through their skulls.
Conclusion: MadWorld is a surprisingly excellent game that is bound to piss off a lot of people. However, it's refreshing for adult gamers to have access to such interesting and mature (immature?) fare on Nintendo's console. The single-player game is loads of fun and is guaranteed to have you laughing hysterically.
