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

  • Listen to humorous commentary from sports announcers who offer play-by-play on the spectacular mayhem
Exclusive to the Nintendo Wii

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

There are some people who associate all visual media as art, including video games. A game like MADWORLD certainly does that argument a lot of justice. PlatinumGames studio's premiere game, MADWORLD is a beat-em-up, but it's certainly not a classic one. In fact, it is the most insanely brutal game on the Wii and probably ever made. As a stark contrast, it is also the Wii's most playable and entertaining game. In a very non-civilized fashion, the player controls Jack, armed with a freaking chainsaw. He's a gruff and buff killer who enters a DeathWatch tournament, which is made of corporate individuals with deep pockets who want to rule everything. Jack enters the tournament in order to become number one. It's simple, and so is everything else about the game. However, that is this game's golden ticket. The controls are absolutely perfect for a Wii game. The motion controls involve finishing off your foes in the most excruciatingly painful ways possible and it's a blast. Honestly, the detail and attention to the movements and brutality is quite amazing. You also perform combo moves by pressing one button. When you beat up your opponent up enough, special death prompts will come up on screen and then you can finish your opponent. Then you repeat the strategy. It's very simple and has no learning curve. It's very easy to jump right into the game and begin going on a killing spree. The best thing about the game is the numerous ways to execute the opponents. You are NEVER limited in your methods of execution. From spikes to slam your opponents on, cleverly called "rose bushes" to meat grinders, death presses, machinery, sign posts, explosive barrels, water fountain, space shuttle engine burners, arcade machines, the moon?! This game is ridiculous. But it's good. Great. Excellent.Read more ›

I was a bit skeptical when I saw this game. If you appreciate different art styles, you will appreciate the comic book graphics within this game. I always complained that Wii did not offer enough adult games; well this is as adult as it gets. The gore is intensified using the black and white cell shading as it stand out as red blood. The enemies say bad words like the "F-Bomb" and etc. The action is nonstop, intense, did I say gory, and above all fun. We pulled it out of the box and at first we were like "Oh my God, what are we playing!" It was like culture shock for a video game. After the initial shock, the game was so fun three of us played taking turns for 4 hours and was not aware of it!
I am a hardcore gamer, and I am pretty crucial on all games. Here is my personal breakdown: 1-10 (1 being crappy and 10 is best game ever)

Graphics 8.0 (only if you appreciate different visual art styles)
Sound 7.5 (some of the music and voices may get repetitive, but all games have some repetition)
Ease of use 8.0 (just watching someone will teach you how to play in minutes)
Fun 8.5 (it is adult fun, do not let young kids play this)
Replay value 8.5 (what makes this game is you can make killing combos which increase your score, you can come up with dozens of ways to dispose of your opponent; making high score runs exciting for experienced players.)
Overall score 8.0

Overall, this is a must have for adult wii owners whom have been looking for something violent, bloody, and at times grotesque.
