4Player Review: Anarchy Reigns

4Player-"Anarchy Reigns might be the most innovative and daring project yet released by Platinum Games. While the studio certainly houses accomplished veterans of the characters action genre, bringing this type of game into the online arena has been rarely attempted, and almost always met with complete disaster. Similar to fighting games, the character action genre is defined by tight controls, deep mechanics, sick combos, and ridiculous amounts of flair and spectacle. The challenge lies in keeping the combat tight and fun while beating up on someone when there are multiple other players attempting to do the same thing to you, at the same time, and in the same small space. And then do all this with virtually no lag. The good news is Platinum Games has finally cracked the code. The bad news is this online brawling bliss is buried under a lackluster campaign, and sandwiched in between other online modes that are more frustrating than fun. " (Anarchy Reigns, PS3, Xbox 360) 85/100
