GameZone writes, "Platinum Games are somewhat revered by gamers. Bringing us stellar titles like Bayonetta, Vanquish, and even future titles like Metal Gear Solid Revengeance, it's hard not to love these guys. The question here however is whether Platinum's pedigree has somewhat overshadowed any possibility of a game being only sub-par. Does the love for Platinum blind gamers to the fact that maybe not every game they make isn't an instant hit? Anarchy Reigns is the latest title to come from the studio, and one that will certainly leave an impression on some, but might also disappoint others."
