Rated 10 out of 10 by MacIsNotAwesome Great Contender for Wii Game of 2009 (NOT JUST SINGLE PLAYER)
MadWorld, the most stylistic, over the top, violent game on the Wii since No More Heroes, has finally arrived, and I can say that this game is one of the best the Wii has to offer. First, I want to stress on this game's art style; black and white and red all over. It's totally original to the Wii, and I can't get enough of how much this game reminds me of a graphic novel, with all constant blurbs of comic book-esque words popping up all over the screen (RAWRR!, KRASHH!) Storyline is also very amusing as well, comedic, while slightly terrifying at the same time. At the same time, I want to remind the consumer that this game is NOT JUST SINGLE PLAYER! It includes a co-op collection of minigames, such as Man Darts, and others as well. This adds to it's replayability greatly; a friend and I were having a ball trying to beat out each other while slicing up people with chainsaws! Overall, MadWorld is definitely a next gen title for all hardcore Wii gamers, so go out and buy it right now!
Rated 9 out of 10 by H3x500 great, simply amazing!!!
I will start of by saying that this game is great!! the graphics are great even though there is only one color (red). the cool comic style graphics work perfectly and will have you saying" how did anybody not think of this before". The theme of this game is perfect. Your character is named Jack and has a chainsaw built as a prostetic arm. The story is good but you will get through it pretty fast but no worries because it has a ton of replayibility and also features 2 player minigames!! the controls are also good, they fully utilize the wii motion sensor. the game challenge will satisfy all hardcore gamers like us. But now with some cons, i will say this game does not support widescreen but the two black bars on the side are very small and blend with the graphics! This is a great game and a must have for mature wii owners and only mature because well.. this game has more blood than any other and also have more cursing than any other but it is still a grat game!!!
Rated 0 out of 10 by patsfan365 Finally!
When I first bought my Wii about 2 years ago, i was excited. The controls seemed so new and innovative. Wii Sports was awesome and convinced me that i made the right purchase. After a month or two, i started thinking " Now what?" I got Super Mario Galaxy and Super Smash Bros. Brawl, which, don't get me wrong, were good, but they got old quick. I, being a hardcore gamer, needed something to keep me entertained for a long time. I needed violence. There are not many violent games for the wii out there, so i'm looking forward to this game. I will probably rent it first, just in case, but if i like it, consider that *** in your register gamestop. The one thing I'm worried about is the color scheme. It seems like with everything being the same colors, it would be confusing trying to tell what is what. That's the reason i'm renting it first. Finally a violent wii game. And by violent i mean bloody, not some plumber snapping necks by jumping on them. lol.

Madworld is the game I have personally been waiting for ever since I bought my Wii. For starters the Graphics/Animations reminds me of something out of Frank Millers playbook, the way the game is designed you only see three colors black,white and red, trust me you will be seeing alot of red playing this game. The language is foul, it contains tons of gore and the sotry line to the game was very well conglomerated. You can sense how much of a bad man Jack is just through the first cut scene of the game. This games controls bring out the full affects of the wii remote and the nun chuck whcih is one of the strong points of the game it really feels like you are personally beating the craps out of the guys you are fighting. The commentators throughout the game are hilarious which is the icing on the cake. I would not be suprised if this was nominated for 2009 game of the year. Thank You SEGA for making me feel smart for buying the wii.
Rated 10 out of 10 by brandon freeman and then were was madworld
madworld is one of the few mature rated games for the wii but it is the best non horror m game. trhe story is about a tv channel that wants to make a bloody show. jack is the main character in the game and he goes through the game as the playable character. its like a comic book by for adults. the blood is endless the violance is gorey and the different ways u can kill someone are great. u could kill them will anything u can pick up. i like jacks chainsaw arm the best . he has a freakin chainsaw come out of his arm. u can kill enemies by a finishing move 2. or u could just go around and cut them in have with your chainsaw. the bosses are unique and every boss u do a different finishing move on . u can also go and pick up other weapons to be held like a nailed baseball bat . the isnt that long for freak players but i dont play a lot so it took me longer. but trust me you will want to play it more than just one time.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Ryan T Vergara An action game for the Wii everyone can be proud of!
First off, I haven't beat the game and I've only played through one city, but from what i've played the game is amazing. Instantly you're attention is captured by the noir style of artwork (black and white), and the great voice work. Controls are easy enough for most, while the combo's and finishers can at least satisfy an expert gamer. The game makes use of most, if not all, the potential in the Wii Controls. The animation is smooth, although the transitions from gameplay to finishers can be a bit abrupt, With LoZ like free-roaming capabilities and a smart point system, there's enough violence and action to keep you busy before you take on any challenges or bosses. The "challenges" or mini-games are both fun and action filled. They will keep you wanting to play them again and again. The story is not so original, but with a new twist. Honestly, with no bias, I can safely say that this game has potential for game of the year! This game seems like a first of original Wii-only action games! Lets hope that Madworld is the seed that will shoot the Wii way above the competition.
Rated 6 out of 10 by SmashingTipsy Great game, but worth a buy?
Face it, Madworld is a wonderful thrill-ride of violence and destruction. The controls are great, the storyline is interesting with a nice unpredictable twist. As for challenge, if you think normal is to easy, hard should satisfy you. Its a fresh beat 'em up game done in a creative way, from black, white, and red color scheme, to funny as shit announcers. The music is a bit questionable, but you find it fits quite nicely. This game is great! The only major problem is the length. I was really sad when i finished the game in one sitting on normal, around 5 hours. If you like replaying games, hard should take you a long while, but will get frustrating. There is not much to unlock in this game, which is also a bummer. But dont get me wrong, this is a really good game. I would recommend renting it, instead of buying it. If your a fan of playing games over, then go ahead and buy it. Also the 2 player is not that exciting, the split screen is kinda messed up, and the mini games are not too exciting, so dont get your hopes up on 2 player. Final judgement-Rent it! Its a good game!
Rated 9 out of 10 by theforgottenking222 Bloody awesomeness
I played a demo of this game at the gamestop store and ever since then ive been hooked on it. The only downside about this game is the graphics i dont no about anybody else but i cant stand black and white it hurts my eyes and its hard to see. but ever thing else is PERFECT i would definitely recommend this game to people who love bloody madness as much as i do! This in my opipenion is one of the best wii games ever i bought it about 2 days ago i havent beat it yet but im close the storyline is awesome i mean who would have thought one day im going to make a game where a guy is put on the show and slaguters a bunch of peopl. the thing i like about this game is the human darts minigame its a fun game that i personolly could spend hours playing so if u just got your wii or u have had it 4 a long time this should be on top the top of your games i want list (if u have one)
Rated 8 out of 10 by Anthony LaScola Madworld is truely Mad
This game is by far the goriest you will ever play. Its shocking that its for Nintendo's kid friendly console! If you like comic books, specifically Sin City and Frank Miller style art, this is right up your alley. The emphasis on gore is very strong. Its basically the name of the game. You play in death-match areas of cities using everything you can (including your bare hands) to dismember, impale, and bludgeon your enemies. Not to mention the built in chainsaw Jack uses will be your primary weapon. Jack also can perform finishing moves on normal enemies. Boss matches are unique and Jack finishes each off in a unique way for the finale. You will find gruesome little mini games within each level that require you to kill off a whole bunch of enemies in a fixed time limit. Very very unique and fun gory game from Sega. It really maintains that arcade style as well.
Rated 10 out of 10 by jimbodini7 really good game
Although Madworld is pretty short, and although it's probably the bloodiest game I've ever played, it is really fun. You get to slice enemies in half and shove a signpost in their head. The graphics are unique because it's in black and white. The thing I would change if I made this is the swearing. Every second you hear the f word and s word so it gets pretty annoying. But dont let that stop you from getting this game. It is a really good game with a great story line that explains everything. And besides, if you go to options you can turn off the announcers voices. Also, when you beat this challenging game you cant skip the credits. I tried pressing all the buttons but nothing worked. Whatever. At least you get the katana and the double chainsaw when you beat the game. I would definitely recommend this to everyone who's aloud to play M games
