Excerpt: In the future, we’re all going to be totally ripped. Women will have giant tits with machine guns for nipples, while men will stand eight feet tall with steroid-sized biceps that could pop a mad scientist’s brain out of their skull with the merest squeeze. And there’s going to be giant mutants who are strangely reluctant to part with the comforts only afforded by a well-fitted pair of trousers and boots.

Summary: Parents need to know Anarchy Reigns isn't for kids or young tweens as it's extremely violent, bloody, and gory. There are also some sexually suggestive comments in the dialogue, one instance of bare buttocks shown, and strong profanity, too. Online gamers can talk freely with no filters or monitors.
Excerpt: Platinum Games knows exactly what Anarchy Reigns is.

Summary: With its budget price I whole-heartedly recommend " Anarchy Reigns ". Its fast pace of action, and a good mix of missions, make what could have been a generic fighter far more.

The campaign is split between the points of view of two opposing characters.
Summary: : Anarchy Reigns is a fun budget beat-em-up that has some frustrating lack of depth in places, but the majority of the complaints one could levy against it are entirely cancelled out by its budget price, leaving the game worth picking up for its thirty dollar price tag. Granted, the game’s online can take a while to get into if you’re playing a pickup game against strangers, the single player campaign is short, the plot is messy and predictable, and there’s a general...

Conclusion: Anarchy Reigns is good, clean fun while the appeal lasts, and demonstrates that online fighting games needn't be restricted to just versus fare. There's clearly room for something a little more... anarchic.
