  • Summary: The post-holiday period is usually agonizingly slow in the games industry, but 2013 is getting off to a good start with the wild and awesome Anarchy Reigns. It pairs developer Platinum Games' ( and ) trademark tight controls and imaginative gameplay - this time in a fighter / beat-em-up hybirid - with a crazy cast of characters and over the top action that is just insanely fun. Anarchy Reigns is a blast that no action or fighting game fan should miss.

Anarchy Reigns Review

PlayDevil

  • 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 pallet cleanser after the Christmas FPS-a-thon would be crazy to miss.

Anarchy Reigns (Xbox 360)

PC Magazine
14 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Platinum Games delivers another action gem that's full of wacky characters and even wackier moves, but the far-too-chaotic multiplayer mode is a bit of a downer.
  • Pros: Smooth and surprisingly deep combat system. Random environmental events. Ability to hijack vehicles. Huge environments. Tons of multiplayer modes.
  • Cons: No local multiplayer. Multuplayer can become a frustrating mess when lots of players are involved.

  • 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.

An Action-Packed Online Brawler With Some Rough Edges

Game Informer
8 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Concept: Gonzo characters duke it out in this action/fighting game hybrid. Multiplayer is the main attraction, but a sizeable campaign awaits solo players Graphics: Character models and their animations look great, but the environments and NPCs are boring and repetitive Sound: The hip-hop soundtrack has some satisfying beats, but the obnoxious lyrics are grating Playability: More accessible than most fighting games, but less complex than top-tier action games.

Anarchy Reigns

Digital Chumps
8 January 2013
  • Conclusion: It’s too easy to see where Anarchy Reigns could have been better. Games are made within a budget and Anarchy Reigns' surely wasn't much, but you have to admire the purity of its intentions. In a perfect world it would have a Call of Duty 2-like impact and birthed refined successors, but as it stands Anarchy Reigns is an enjoyable oddity pleading for an elegant sequel. If I may paraphrase Hunter S.

Anarchy Reigns

Total Xbox
8 January 2013
  • Excerpt: What with the global wars and poisonous munitions, humanity’s made a toxic wreck of the future, but don’t expect a preachy lesson in peace and love. Instead, Anarchy Reigns turns the ruins into post-apocalyptic brawling arenas, and fills them with the likes of Molotov-tossing psychopaths, angry robots, and howling, lizard-like mutants.
  • Pros: + Hugely enjoyable multiplayer modes, populated by 16 weirdos with unusual weapons., + Intuitive controls make crazy combos easy to do; $30 price; can play multiplayer offline with bots.
  • Cons: ? How’d Jack get such giant arms?

  • Summary: It's not every day that you're forced to fight a squid to death, let alone one with vicious, electrified tentacles and a penchant for chewing on aircraft carriers. Nor is it every day that you see said squid get sawn in half by a loud-mouthed pimp, or its squelchy offspring squished into bloody black ink by a man with a rusty chainsaw for an arm. But then, this isn't your typical game.
  • Pros: Satisfying combat system, Fabulously gory combos, Chopping the head off a giant squid with a chainsaw
  • Cons: Difficult to follow the story, Some single-player missions get repetitive, Big online brawls don't work as well as smaller ones

Ruling over the chaos — Anarchy Reigns Xbox 360 Review

GamingTrend
14 August 2013
  • Excerpt: I admit that I have a soft spot for Platinum games.  They developed MadWorld, Bayonetta, and Vanquish.  They were also the team behind Clover who developed Okami and Viewtiful Joe.  Their games included something in them to set them apart, whether it was a gameplay mechanic or presentation style.  While their games never got the commercial success they deserved, they do have a cult following.  Now they have released Anarchy Reigns, a brawler with a budget price.
  • Pros: Unique multiplayer modes, Nice array of moves, Characters play differently from each other, Plenty of gameplay for a $30 game
  • Cons: Single-player is a grind, No split-screen multiplayer, Incoherent story, Lack of variety in opponents
