Here's a more informative review. I gave this game some time and I say you should rent before buying, here are the reasons. The combat is fun, it isn't deep like tekken tag team 2 or anything but it's decent enough. I'll break this review down in two sections starting with the campaign.
You chose Leo or Jack from Madworld. They have different stories but they intertwine. All you do is kill guys in the open world to do a side quest, doing a side quest allows you to do a main quest. There's 3 main quest missions per level and 10 levels total after playing both characters. Its mostly rinse and repeat, the talk scenes are off and weird, and the story makes little sense, but you got to play this to unlock the characters for multiplayer easier and some of the abilities. At least the trophies are easy to get and are all based off of the campaign.
Now for multiplayer. you got 3 classes, light which is all the girls, medium which are all the guys except Douglas, Big Bull, Garuda, and Gargoyle which are heavy. Each of these classes attack differently and have different abilities. As you level up you get unlocks such as characters and abilitys to make things easier for you. Even though the fighting is easy in campaign, multiplayer is completely different, mostly for the worse. You got your standard mutiplayer game types such as deathmatch and capture the flag, but you also have a soccer type game mode called deathball. All of this is fun but lag runs rampant in most games and you'll have to adjust to it to get better. The best you can do is select your country and pray for the best connection, else you'll die often. They can easily patch online to make it funner but I don't think this game will get the fanbase to get it thanks to games like CoD:BO2.
This game is kinda fun but the effort put in just isn't enough, and the game just isn't too known. I say give it a chance, you may like it but you'll see that it can be so much more...
