What do these ratings mean?

Take Conker's Bad Fur Day, Combine it with No More Heros plus Black And White and ta-da. You got MadWorld.

Ah, MadWorld. I'd say it's the most violant game on Wii, and for a good reason. Sega's dirty mind came up with this and Nintendo agreed to publish it. Real good that ESRB™ rated this game M.


Story
You're a character named Jack, and you just signed up (and casting) in a new TV show. Congrates! But the whole goal is to kill your enemies in the most original way possible. The most original you kill them, the more points you get. The story kinda bland though, not a major issue but still something.

Graphics
By far I have to say that though Sega's mind, the Graphics looks epic and the "Sin City" Black And White parody really adds to the game. The only thing that's in color is the blood, and you will see a lot of it and it looks pretty epic to walk around with stairs and walls filled with blood.




Gameplay
As I said, the whole point of the game (show) is to kill your enemies in the most creative way possible. You are armed with a chainsaw but still this won't get you very many points. You'll mostly first stun your enemies then finish them, and this is rated from Chainsaw Overkill, To throwing them into trash cans and even throwing your enemies to a moving train! The whole fun of the game is to see what is the best way to murder your enemies.
Also from time to time you'll find stuff called "BloodBath Challanges", which are basiclly just bonus stages where you need to murder the most people within the time limit, cool addition to the game.
Overall, it's a fun gameplay you'll get very exited at first, but then the gears in your head will start to work and you'll figure out that every level is pretty much the same.


Sound
The sound is pretty much just the sound you'd want to hear: The chainsaw, The people you murder are screaming, when there's a train you hear it's horn and even the narriors of the show talking around. I didn't really heard any background music whatsoever, I just heard in Bloodbath challanges.


Control
The controls require both Wii Remote and Nunchuk. You swing the Wiimote while pressing B to move the chainsaw around. You kick with A and to take stuff (Or throw...) you hold A and twist the Wiimote at the same time, a bit glitchy if you ask me because sometimes you end up punching. Controls worked Great. Not perfect I must say but great.

Replay

The time taken to finish the game moves around between a few hours to spawn of some/one day(s) if you want to get everything. After that, you won't gonna really come back to it. Sure, if you got a friend you can play in the bloodbath challanges but really nothing else I can think of that will make you insert the disk again.


Final Grade
Madworld is a fun little game that will keep you going for one full story mode but after that you won't gonna get back to it. Black and White really adds and I found it really cool. Sound is good, I guess and the story kinda blind and every level is pretty much the same.
