MadWorld is that rare breed of game that not only pays artistic respect to the directorial advancement of games as art, but marries the concept with pop-culture and videogaming as a far-rooted [old] school of interaction. It's a triumph on many levels, and if everything else it set out to do wasn't ardent enough, Platinum Games' decision to cap it off with some of the most violent action you'll ever experience tells AusGamers these guys are the future of game development.
This is a Wii game your grandparents, kids or spouses will likely never get, let alone enjoy playing. MadWorld is strictly hardcore gaming at its most artistic, relevant, enjoyable and cool. An absolute must play.
