The Digital Fix: "Platinum Games are possibly the world’s finest proponents of third-person combat gaming. Platinum’s catalogue of games from Mad World to Bayonetta and Vanquish are all about making the combat feel good. It’s all about the elegant, pacy and fluid battling you do with otherworldly beasts from the realms of fantasy and science-fiction, whether it be with fists, guns or something else entirely. The brilliance of a Platinum Games’ game is the balletic movement, the multi-layered fighting and the excitement which comes with it all whether you’re a novice bashing the buttons to deliver a basic battering, or an experienced fighter combining combos to clinical effect. With Anarchy Reigns things are a little more raw than in recent times, driven by the narrative to provide a brutal beat ‘em up in single player and a mesmerising variety of multiplayer options. Yet when all is combined you’re still seeing some of the deepest, most learned fighting around."
