I am a big fan of games that you can just sit down and get right into it. I don't want to have to make a character or plan a career ar any of that non-sense I just want to race or blow things up or in this case cut people in half!!! I wasn't sure I was on board with the whole black and white play but it turned out to be really cool, it is like playing a comic book! The levels are easy enough to get through and still have fun doing it. the combo moves are awsome...how many games let you ring the guy with a tire,stick a sign post through his head and then repeatedly throw him against a spiked wall!!!! It is for adults the language is harsh and the amount of blood (while super cool) is not meant for kids. The only bad thing I have to say is that when you are attacking a person your thumb tends to hit the + button and that brings you to the map page but that is no fault of the game and may just be the way I hold the controller. I was very happy to see a "grown up" game for the wii, we bought the system for my 3 young ones and while they never get tired of it, I was wishing for a non cartoony game and this is it. I loved it and don't want to give it back so I might just end up buying it.

Sin City meets GTA

Lets give credit where it's due. Nintendo has beat around the mature bush for far too long and finally decided it was time to step up their game. Granted there were a few before it, but none with as much useless violence as this one.

The best part about this game is it's visuals. As basic as they are the graphics give you that nice Sin City feel that really lets the grunge set in. Basically, it's a comic book with all the old Batman "Wham" and "Kapow!"

Pretty much all the controls revolve around A and some swinging of the remote. Most kills when you're on a bike or just running around with filler opponents take on shot. The beginning of the game is as most Wii games are these days, tutorials. Useful as always and by the end you get the picture on how easy the game play is.

This game is great for the Wii but there is only one problem. After a while the black and white will begin to mess with your head and the "Wham," "Pow," and whatever other cheesy hitting sound ever produced on the 70's Batman show will drive you as crazy as the world you're running around in. Of course it's all easily curable by just taking a quick break and coming back to it.

the good: the killing (finally Wii), and the graphics!
the bad: Kaplow! and seeing only black and white when you turn off the game

A Blood Bath with an Amazing Soundtrack!

MadWorld, possibly the most bloody and violent game for the Wii. The controls took a little bit to get use too (probably because I'm mainly a 360 player). Everything is in black, white, and red. Very fitting for the atmosphere this game presents. But what really blew me away was the soundtrack. It was simply amazing and it fit the violence so very well. I really hope they start making more adult oriented games for the Wii, such as this bloody masterpiece.
