MadWorld was a hack and slash video game developed by PlatinumGames and published by Sega. It was released in North America for the Wii on March 10th, 2009.
MadWorld is divided into several levels representing different parts of Jefferson Island that have been converted into sets for the game show “DeathWatch”. The player controls Jack from a third-person perspective using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk attachment for attacks and movement, respectively.
MadWorld has received positive reviews from critics. In its April 2009 issue, Nintendo Power gave MadWorld a 9/10 rating. IGN gave the game a 9/10, praising the style, gameplay, and music, but criticizing the camera and short length, though it mentions that the hard difficulty level lengthens the game and increases the challenge considerably.
Cheers & Game On!
