Excerpt: Get ready to literally paint the town red with Madworld for the Wii, brought to you by Sega. Madworld has a total regard for violence, offensive language, and complete mayhem--but that's what you want in a video game, right? Sega has never been afraid to unleash uniqueness to gamers, and with Madworld, the tradition continues; Sega shows us that the Wii doesn't have to be a kids' machine, a family entertainment box, or something you need to play with others all time.
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.
Summary: Do you remember being excited for the Wii? I sure do. I remember waiting in line for nearly three hours on a cold October morning, just to pre-order one. Back in ‘06 the Wii was Nintendo's promise to revolutionize our favorite game genres with a unique new interface that would make gaming more immersive than ever. Well, it's 2009 and for the most part that promise is still unfulfilled.
Summary: MadWorld is a third-person action game that has a unique black & white style depicting a sharp backdrop that straddles graphic novels and 3-D worlds, mixing irreverent humor and over-the-top violence.
Excerpt: Phrases like “gratuitous violence” have become common among those who criticize the video game industry. MadWorld may require an entirely new term to describe the twisted, disturbing, and hilariously over-the-top level of violence it employs. If you are looking for a style of bloody action game unlike anything else on the market this beat-em-up might just be for you.
