This week in Gaming: Madworld

Madworld Platform: Nintendo Wii

Developers: Platform Games, Sega

Classification: MA 15+

Genre: Action, Fighting

*****/*****
Now I don’t usually give a five star rating for any game, but for this one, it deserves it. Sega and Platform games have teamed up to create the recently released Madworld for Wii. Wii is not known for  being a hardcore gaming console, rather a family game, however this game completely changes the theory.

You play as Jack, a survivalist in a city that has been taken over by another race. You are forced to compete in a game show called ‘Death Watch’ where you have to fight enemies in order to survive. You go around the city killing enemies in the most brutal of brutal ways using weapons such as Chainsaws, Spiked Baseball bats and even ninja blades.  Each kill gains you a certain amount of points, the more brutal the kill, the higher amount of points rewarded. In order to win the game show, you must gain a high amount of points.

You fight around a map, with a boss at each level, each level is made up of the most twisted ideas such as ninjas riding on motorbikes and bus’ with metal spikes on the side.Through out each level you acquire new weapons such as massive poles, ninja swords and studded baseball bats. However you have your trusty , rusty chain saw the whole way through the game .

The colours in the game include black, white and a whole lot of red! This allows the graphics to be better on the Wii as it was not as much hard work to make only three colours in the game , and the designers could work on rendering the graphics to make it great for the Wii. Madworld is also multiplayer. You can play side by side with a friend and compete in the most gruesome challenges. This game also includes a 15 song hip-hop sound track to match the game, which gives the game an even better feel to it.

Who ever came up with this game is either a mental patient or a complete and utter genius. This game is a must have for your Wii, and is  a total classic. I hope all Wii users out there can  experience the glory of this game.

tgr-stars-jpg1

Developer:Vicarious Visions, Redoctane, Neversoft

Genre:Music/Party

Platforms: Playstation 2, Playstation 3, Wii, Xbox 360

Classification: PG

Guitar Hero: World Tour is the fourth game in the Guitar Hero series. This series has been a hit selling over 23 million copies world wide and making over 1.6 billion dollars in retail sales. This game, like the other three in the series, has been acclaimed by both critics and players. It is the perfect game for a bunch of friends or playing by your self in single player career mode.

Although the this game is like all the others (a guitar simulator style game where you play to many popular songs) world tour has introduced a new way of playing guitar hero. The developers have added drums and a microphone to the game. This way you are able to sing, drum or strum to your favorite songs, thus having the ability to create and perform in a virtual band with a few of your friends. Another addition to GH4 is the ‘Bass Guitar’ feature used while playing Guitar, where you are able to play the bass part to the song of your choice. The song list varies in styles of music (from alternative to heavy metal), but there are plenty of different genres to match your taste. Using an online store (dependent on your console), you are able to also download hundreds of other songs onto your hard drive.

List of songs, gallery and rest of review follow after the break.
