This game looks so different but in an awesome virtual cocaine infused killing spree kind of way.
I hope it lives up to the hype.
It's a great concept, basically like The Running Man in a stylish videogame form.
I'm certain that Madworld will live up to the hype because the previews have been very positive and pretty much every game that the developers have been involved with has been awesome. I'd guess at the majority of reviews being in the high 8's or mid 9's.
In fact i'm so certain that I think i'm going to go and preorder it this weekend.
Just listened to IGN's podcast and they say that they are playing the finished version. According to them the game is awesome, a fantastic beat em up that is challenging, is the current GOTY that other games are going to have to try and beat (over even RE:5) and if you can afford to buy it but you just rent it instead then you're an asshole! They also said it is key to the future of games on the Wii.
By their enthusiasm it sounds like it is definitely going to be scoring in the high 9's. March 10th just can't come soon enough!
