An excellent game.
on 12 January 2013
Last year I ordered this game for £40 to then find out it had been delayed for a year, A YEAR. So the time finally came to pre-order and to my surprise for £18 [practically]. My shock arrival of it's appearance the day of it's release when I didn't pay for first class! So, anyway onto the review.
If you don't have XBL don't buy this game.
Anarchy Reigns is an Arcade Brawler with an 'all-star' cast. Created by SEGA and Platinum Games - Bayonetta makes an appearance as limited edition DLC, aswell as 2 extra modes on top of the 10. The game plays extremely well, the multiplayer and overall gameplay is easy to grasp, yet hard enough to separate the long time gamers from the new buyers. It has over 10 modes for multiplayer all of which are a joy to play. The only sad thing is this game's audience is no-where near big enough for it's multiplayer content; Be prepared to be switching back and forth looking for a match to play, you can't be pick and choose unfortunately. AR is mainly for multiplayer so don't be buying this unless you want online. it's story line even though enjoyable I've heard is quite short. there is enough replay value for you always to come back to this gem in the rough too bad not everyone gamer will return due to new releases. It's lack of funding and delayed release will of affected sales badly especially since there has been NO advertisement anywhere. If you like niche games with a stir or quirkyness buy it. this will keep you entertained for as long as people continue to play it.
It's not going top put you out of pocket.
Game - 8/10
Sound - 10/10 - Platinum Never dissapoints, if you liked the ost of bayonetta you'll appreciate this, it makes waiting in lobbys enjoyable.
Longevity - 5/10 Sadly I don't think this will stand the test of time due to it's niche target.
Enjoyable Factor - 10/10 If you're looking for some fun every now and then and don't want a game you need to commit to then Anarchy Reigns is for you.
