This is NOT a deep game at all. The story is really weak. But it is a good button mashing combo adding game. It is a sort of mindless good time that can be fun for a bit. If you are going in with the right expectations it's not a bad game.

The title says it all. This game is a great game for anyone looking for a 3d brawler. For anyone who played MadWorld this game is a spiritual sequel only and has virtually nothing to do with MadWorld and will even somewhat contradict it at points. The combat, while less focused on getting creative with your violence, still feels very reminiscent of the combat in MadWorld. Many of the complaints about the combat system come from people who couldn't figure out how to make the battles flow or were playing on the easier difficulties that require nothing more than button smashing. The graphics while a bit on the japanese side give the game a unique refreshing look that is so lacking in many of today's games that just attempt to make the most realistic looking game possible. The campaign mode, while lacking in story and feeling slightly repetitive, will give you an alright couple of hours of gameplay. The multiplayer on the other hand has many incredibly fun game types and characters to choose from. Some complaints are that the characters fight too similarly due to heavy and light characters and that everyone has the same controls but there is definitely enough variety between each character's moves to make using each one of them entertaining. This game is not for everyone, but if you feel like playing a good old fashioned brawler this game is definitely worth giving a shot.
To keep it short and simple the game is worth a rent or a buy if you plan to play multiplayer. The combat, while similar for every character, is very rewarding. Think of it as 3d Super Smash Brothers, items and all.
