Additional comments
Madworld was a nice change of pace for a wii game when It came out trying to go for a more adult market on a casual console, its over the top gameplay and stylized visuals made it a treat to play. The stylish look would sometimes make it really confusing for the player due to the amount of visual noise.

8 out of 8
