I finally managed to pick up a copy of MadWorld this week. It's not that it's hard to find, there are just so many games. Aside from the main character's voice actor having been in about a million different anime, I've been finding the biggest distraction to be the violence.
Wait, in MadWorld of all games, the violence is a distraction?
The game itself is fairly fun. It gives me an excuse to turn the Wii on for something other than a system update (Punch-Out and Boom Blox aside - those are next on the list). I love the black-and-white-and-red-all-over art style. The mechanics are entertaining.
After about half an hour of gameplay, though, I found myself clicking the cancel button every time a killshot popped up. I'm not shying away from the violence, mind you. I've played my share of violent games and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon. (Wolverine, you're next!) I found, however, that the almost pornographic focus on the kill was getting in the way of me enjoying the game.
