Excerpt: Platinum Games knows exactly what Anarchy Reigns is. The studio behind Bayonetta and the criminally underrated Wii exclusive Madworld 's latest title is a big, goofy over the top brawler that puts players into ridiculous action scenes with characters just as crazy.
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. Mix that with interesting environments, great music and melodramatic story, and you have a game that anyone looking for a...
Excerpt: Platinum Games has been in a weird position, since the company came into existence, of not really quite paying off the potential the company was thought to have. While Bayonetta was an excellent (if derivative) experience, Madworld and Vanquish were largely aesthetically pleasing but otherwise basic...
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.

Excerpt: Platinum Games seems to be on their “A” game with the release of Anarchy Reigns for Xbox 360 this week. I have to say that I enjoyed a brutally satisfying brawler that continuously throws hordes of enemies at you in a world that’s one more carpet bombing away from being a… wasteland.

Excerpt: Can you catch a missile and throw it back at the jet that fired it at you? No, probably not. It’s also unlikely that you’d be able to sprint up a collapsed building in high heels, or punch a car with your bare hands so many times that it explodes.
Pros: The primal simplicity of mashing buttons to bash in faces, The crazy cast of characters, How ridiculously over-the-top it all is
Cons: May be too campy for some tastes, The dullness of some single-player missions, Not knowing what the hell is going on in multiplayer
Excerpt: I'm not much of a competitive multiplayer guy. Never have been, never will be. As such, when I got word of a budget-priced multiplayer game featuring the lead character from MadWorld (something else I'm not a fan of) I paid very little attention, and felt justified in ignoring it.
Pros: Sasha. Also, Sasha.
Cons: Not realizing there was an elevator behind the tentacle.
