GameSpot: "Anarchy Reigns' tight combat and over-the-top action are brilliant in places, but tiresome in others."
its a very fun game. Platinum never lets me down
Another overrated mediocre game from platinum games.
Platinum is yet to dissapoint me
Loved all of my multiplayer sessions of the demo especially with the random disasters to mix up the chaotic gameplay. Plus the soundtrack is one of the best I have heard for a while......
Max Anarchy (aka Anarchy Reigns should it ever be released in NA) is the definitive brawler this gen. However, Platinum Games failure to incorporate local multiplayer/split-screen co-op, will be the games undoing. The game would've been a 10, if local multiplayer/split-screen co-op, was implemented. This would've game an incredible amount of longevity. The belief (maybe even Platinum Games believed it) that Max Anarchy is or was viewed as an online only multiplayer brawler, is foolish to say the least. There can never be an "online only" multiplayer brawler, as many who play such games, do so with family and friends on the same console. (only a handful of games understood that this gen, RE:5, Army Of Two, Kane & Lynch, Lost Planet 2, Borderlands, etc...) As a result Max Anarchy's "reign" will be short lived, as the multiplayer options (i.e. online only, to play with other human controlled characters)) don't meet the standard set by it's predecessors, such as Power Stone, Gekido: Urban Fighters, etc...
I like how people today review videogames as if they're critiquing a film. "The story sucked, the way the dialogue was delivered was weak." Last time I checked they're called video "games" not video "movies/films"
