The Story
Varrigan City has fallen under the control of a terrorist group known as the Organizers, and they have a rather twisted sense of fun. Under the Organizers' rule, all citizens are forced to participate in a game called "Death Watch," in which there's only one rule: Kill or be killed. Into the game steps Jack, a mysterious participant practiced at setting traps, engaging in hand-to-hand combat and other useful skills. But will Jack be able to survive Death Watch and ultimately beat the terrorists at their own brutal game?

Key Game Features:

  • Play as Jack, a mysterious participant in the Organizers' Death Watch game whose ultimate goal is to save the terrorized city
  • Explore six different areas of Varrigan City and interact with the environment, using anything in the environment, from sign posts to passing trains, to attack your enemies
  • Utilize your Wii Remote and Nunchuk to battle hand-to-hand with daggers, bats, chainsaws and other weapons while delivering brutal finishing moves
  • Watch this insane and innovative world come to life before you in a unique black-and-white graphic novel artwork style
  • Earn points in the Death Watch game for your bloodiest, most creative kills — the more points you earn, the better your chances of staying alive to save the city
  • Improve your skills and punish your opponents in a series of ultraviolent multiplayer mini games available in each level
  • Listen to humorous commentary from sports announcers who offer play-by-play on the spectacular mayhem
Exclusive to the Nintendo Wii
Play as the mysterious Jack, relying on your wits and your brawn to set ingenious traps, pummel opponents and fight hand-to-hand using your Wii Remote and Nunchuk controller to turn anything in the environment into a weapon, from daggers and chainsaws to sign posts and garbage cans. Hone your skills in exciting, ultraviolent multiplayer mini games, then launch yourself into the Death Watch game and attempt to rack up wildly creative and bloody kills that will earn you points and increase your chance of survival.

Let's get this out of the way first: MadWorld is an adult game. It's the most violent game to date, and there are more content discriptors on the back of the box than for Grand Theft Auto. That being said, if you are an adult Wii gamer and have longed for something bloody, visceral, and mature for your little white box, then buy this game. MadWorld is a far cry from the standard casual family affairs that are currently clogging store shelves.

Madworld puts you in the shoes of Jack, a 40-something who has been thrown into the most horrific game show in America: DeathWatch. Jack must fight and kill to survive, for he's been poisoned, and every kill gives him longer to live. However, DeathWatch is all about entertainment. You see, you may have a chainsaw and fists, but the audience wants more than you to beat up some dudes. Your challenge is to create combos by performing multiple maneuvers on an enemy.

For instance, stab a couple of road signs into a goon, put a trash can over his head, then use a spiked baseball bat to launch him into a dumpster where he'll be sliced in half. The violence is so over the top, that as bad as it sounds, it's actually really hilarious. Don't take me for a psychopath, because when you begin to dig in, you'll laugh too. Of course, there may be instances where you'll wince, but it's all in good fun.

Without going into too much detail, here's what you can expect. Scattered throughout each level are minigames called "Bloodbath Challenges." You'll be given a new way to kill people in a certain number of time and rounds. Most are fun enough to warrant multiple plays to get higher scores. Also, you'll encounter some fantastically spectacular bosses, each escalating in difficulty, and each with some truly cinematic action.

This game gets boring and loses its appeal rather quickly. There are 3 components on every stage:

1. Kill guys until your score gets high-enough...
2. A station will then pop-up, this triggers the mini-game, where you usually throw or smash guys
3. Kill more till your score activates the next trigger, which will be the boss-battle

Note: Every stage has a time limit of 30 Minutes.

All games have a repetitive nature, so I tend to overlook that criticism. However, this game deserves it. Because when you're killing people you're not really doing anything but trying to get it over with to activate the next trigger. This is not a platformer game, where you jump, walk, and progress through the stage. The stages are setup as small areas and guys keep respawning once you kill them. No way to level or improve your character. It just seems pointless and boring.

It has a very comic book feel to it as the designers intended. If you hit someone it says "Blam" or whatever. Also set in black and white, with only the blood and some lettering and on-screen prompts set with yellow highlights.

Everything I read from critic & user reviews was true:
1. Redundant & game gets less fun as you play for a couple hours
2. If you die too much at the big boss and lose all your lives, you have to start all over again (annoying)
3. Black & White screen can be tiresome on eyes if played for an extended period of time

As soon as Platnuim studios was created I new good games would come from them. They have the creators of biohazard (res evil,) devil may cry, viewtiful joe, god hand and okami among others creating their games.

Madworld is there first game out the door as a new studio and I am not dissapointed.

I see many of there past games influence in this one (god hand, devil may cry) with the combo and juggle system but with a new sense of "we can do whatever we want now."

Graphics: 10 There are few games on the Wii system that when my freinds drop by I have to show them off. Among these are Mario Galaxy, Call of duty WaW and Okami (I know it is a port but it is still amazing looking.) I have been showing this game off to everyone. Sure the characters poly models could have been done last gen but the particle effects (blood) and art style makes this game stand out. With the brutal blood sprays, the sparks and smoke from your chainsaw and sound effect bubbles popping up all over the place you can not help but be drawn in.

Gameplay: This is a brawler plan and simple with a dash of kill, kill, kill and kill some more. You are not having to worry about button mashign combos or directional imputs, you are playing a game like the days of old, final fight/fatal fury/double dragon vs battletoads (my favorite.) You find a few combos that work for you and go to town. the best part about this is the town. Your tired and true combos constantly feel fresh due to the world around you. In every nook and cranny is a new way to add flash and gore to your combo and with so many finishers you never really get tired of all the brawling mayhem.

The game is a bit to easy on normal mode. In the time it took me to beat it I only died once per level.

What can I say about this game except "WOW"... I did not expect a game like this to be released on the Wii. First and foremost, I haven't come across many games on the Nintendo Wii that are satisfying to play. Many games that I have bought take up shelf space and collect dust, but Madworld was a game that I was willing to give a try. What I do like is that this game is rated for MATURE players; not a common rating for games on the Nintendo Wii. This game is not for the squeamish; it is very violent and full of words and commentary that I even had some trouble listening to, but it is all in good fun.

One thing I loved (but also hated simultaneously) was the color of the graphics. Everything is in black and white (and red when you begin to spill blood). The black and white adds a certain artistic comic book type value when you play. At the same time, it can hinder the gameplay; everything begins to blend in together and it is very easy to lose sight of the main target, even the main character, since the protagonist also blends in with the background. The storyline is very intricate and involved. It is a story of corruption and sociopathic tendencies. Basically, as one plays through the game, the main focus is to murder enemies (in the most extreme way possible to collect maximum points) then fight a boss at the end of each stage. However, there is a time limit. You must try to gather maximum points while doing it as quickly as possible. This is not that hard of a feat. Every stage has a plethora of props that can be used to re-invent ways to kill an enemy. Once you have collected enough points, the boss battle becomes available. Every boss has his or her own unique move, so it is something you have to catch early on to ensure defeat.
