I haven't played Infinite Space, but Madworld is the only game I don't feel like replaying.

Not even close. Not even if you haven't played MadWorld, Infinite Space and Max Anarchy.

Max Anarchy is just largely a weak effort.

Simple movesets, boring story mode, and online can get pretty lame too.

There's fun to be had, but it really did feel half-hearted.

I wrote this on Anarchy earlier:

That game's problems ran much deeper. Completely unbalanced mechanics (particularly rage mode), overpowered items, enough random deaths from stage hazards to rival Smash Bros, far too many samey characters, and a lack of depth condemned it to mediocrity. Not to mention the complete lack of local multi, unforgivable in a beatemup.

I think it would have helped a lot if they halved the roster but made each character much more distinct and complex.

Max Anarchy is gleeful dumb fun for a few hours, but it gets old fast once the novelty wears off and you have to contend with the actual game design. I think the whole point of the game was for Platinum to experiment with online multiplayer, and it was unfortunately a failure. Awesome soundtrack, at least.

i think you are going into that game with the wrong mindset...

you are expecting bayonetta, but are getting dynasty warriors (truly this is the best dynasty warriors koei never made)

and in many ways this also feels like a sucessor to powerstone too.

the simple moveset is to balance out all the fighters for the sake of the multiplayer (a major focus for this game)

i undertsand your disapointment, nut i really dont thinkits fair to lable this as a weak platinum game.

thats like if my first resident evil was re6 and i went to play re2 expecting it to be an action game with lots of cutscenes.

Max anarchy was what I considered their worst, until I played this. I mean, sure I should wait until the final game to pass a judgement of this sort, but stuff like dodge roll is way to standard to be an ability, and on top of that the moves feel really pathetic. I'm not too sure why the attack strings have such a mashy insignificant feel. It's like everything is an afterthought or just a bridge to blade mode, which isn't fun to use at all.

Being a Platinum fanboy and one who considers MGS2 the best. This game is a wet dream drying up in a desert right now, for me.

I wasn't expecting Bayonetta.

I was just expecting... better?

It was a noble effort, but that doesn't change the fact I put a good 50 hours into it and never quite found the fun.
