Review: Anarchy Reigns (darkzero)

"One day when juggling an enemy in Bayonetta with a barrage of kicks and punches, I thought what an infuriating game it would be if I were on the receiving end. So when Platinum Games started talking about Anarchy Reigns in somewhat vague terms that suggested it would be a multiplayer Bayonetta, I was immediately sceptical. It didn't help that, leading up to the game's release, we got sporadic character reveals that seemed to imply it was a direction-less, mish-mash of Platinum's previous output. With the roster growing from the initial four, more and more MadWorld guests popping up, and finally Bayonetta as a bonus character, I got the impression that the developer was just throwing everything at it to cash in on their established goodwill. Not since Alan Wake's PR cycle had I felt so in the dark as to what kind of game they were actually making, but I was still interested due to my soft spot for the brawler genre and my affection for Bayonetta." (darkzero) (Anarchy Reigns, PS3) 9/10
