IGN writes: "MadWorld is a breath of fresh air on the Wii. Yes, it stands out on the system because it's ridiculously violent and over-the-top in every way, but that's not the reason to play it. And that's not the reason it's refreshing. This is a game you have to own because it presents its brutal killing, incessant swearing and bleak world with such humour and such style. It's tongue-in-cheek the whole way, and at times quite hilarious. Great fun, too".
