Platinum Games, the developers of titles such as Bayonetta and Vanquish, are teaming up once again with Sega to present “Max Anarchy,” as they continue their trend of excellent names. Something they won’t continue is the standard singleplayer action, as Max Anarchy will be an “online combat game,” along the lines of titles such as Breach and Section 8, I would suppose.
The oddest thing about this announcement is that Jack, the main character from Platinum Games’ largely forgotten hyper-violent third person action game, Madworld, will be a playable character in Max Anarchy. Leading me to believe there may be some tie-in between the two games’ setting(s). Another odd thing is that Jack will be in full color, though in Madworld
he was purely black and white, apart from the occasional red blood splatter that would fly on him.
I’ve been up and down on Platinum Games’ games, I liked Bayonetta but thought Madworld was very much a case of too much flash, too little substance. While Vanquish looks interesting, I’ve still yet to pop it out of its Gamefly sleeve. Whatever the case, I’ll definitely give Max Anarchy a chance. Even if it’s just to say “I bought some serious Max Anarchy.” What do you guys think about Platinum Games’ games?
