View Full Version : New Mad World Screenshots and Trailer

As if to answer the very cries resulting from Nintendo's Press Conference earlier today, Sega has released new screenshots and a new trailer for Mad World, an action game coming exclusively to the Wii from developer Platinum Games, Inc. (formerly Capcom's Clover Studios, now independent).


In Mad World, you play Jack, a man with a chainsaw strapped to his right arm (Groovy!) who is one of the "cast members" of a Running Man-styled gameshow where the object is to mercilessly slaughter your opponents in increasingly over-the-top ways. The game's style is very reminiscent of Sin City, with stark black and white graphics, save for the geisers of red blood that spew from your victims.

The violence, however, is more in line with, say, Mortal Kombat than Grand Theft Auto. It's cartoony and over-the-top. It is meant to be humorous, not depraved. This is easily one of my most wanted games (for any system, mind you, not just Wii), and I can't wait to get to try it out for myself.

Interesting art style.

Will be bogged-down by crappy controls.

I call it here first.

Mmmm... I'm very much looking forward to that. I don't have quite the cynicism about it that Pliskin does, but that's just who we are. :]
