Anarchy Reigns Review | Gamereactor UK

GR-UK writes: "Platinum Games has always understood gaming heritage.

And not in the form of cynical cash-ins on nostalgia with pixel graphics, but with a focus on playability, salvaging long-forgotten ideas and outfitting them in new designs. Heritage that recalls smoky arcade halls, crackling speaker systems, classic audio jingles.

With Anarchy Reigns, the studio has repackaged the old-school arcade beat 'em up, crossing it with the modern online brawler, multi-path battles fought over, through and above arenas. The result? Sheer anarchy." (Anarchy Reigns, PS3, Xbox 360) 8/10
