What’s black and white and red all over?

Mad-World, the game that takes the Wii’s

family reputation and runs it through with a

monochrome chainsaw. With its stark comic-

book visuals, rivers of blood and a

never-ending stream of profanity-heavy

dialogue, this ismore like the film Sin City

than the average beat-‘em-up. You play

as Jack, an anti-hero out to win a contest

called Death Watch, which sees contestants

running riot through cities, killing their

opponents in order to be captured on CCTV.

By linking together complex attacks, players

win big points that in turn allow them to commit

ever more impressive crimes. MadWorld has

more style than substance but it marks a true

departure for the Wii.
