That's an interesting thing to be annoyed at, though I agree whole heartedly with your sentiment. I hate having to unlock harder difficulties. It doesn't make any damn sense.

I do find it really annoying, because sometimes I would play games on a harder difficulty setting when playing them for the first time.

Thanks for reading the review, too.

Yeah, odd thing to complain about. I can't say I agree with you (MadWorld's hard difficulty is absolute hell and there is no way I'd want to tackle that first), but that's why they invented vanilla and chocolate ice cream, as they say.

I like this paragraph:

My opinion on all this? Honestly, I think it's cute. MadWorld is so over-the-top with its depiction of ultra violence, that I can't take any of it seriously. It really feels more like a lighthearted, feel good game, thanks to how absurd everything comes off being. What really helps cement this fact is how, except for one, faceless man, not one innocent person gets killed on-screen. All that's presented are a bunch of macho idiots that deserve to die horrific deaths.

Yeah, I'm amazed that so many people accuse MadWorld of "trying too hard" or whatever, because there is no way this game is taking itself seriously. I thought it was pretty brilliant that the game served as kind of a satire of the modern gaming industry while still giving you that same "rush" that a lot of big, macho action games try to lay on you. That was my reaction, anyway.


You exist because we allow it. And you will end because we demand it.

Yeah, what I enjoyed the most from Platinum Games' MadWorld and Bayonetta is that they're just fun games that don't take themselves too seriously. Though, their upcoming game, Vanquish, seems a bit serious. Hopefully it'll still be a fun game too.

I happen to be one of those guys who likes an insane challenge. People keep telling me I need to play Demon Soul (I would've bought it, but I picked up Alpha Protocol instead).
