Rated 5 / 5 stars

FUCK ANYONE who gives this less then 4 stars!

I've honestly created a Newgronds account just to write about how amazing this game is.
Besides the lag that might mess with some people this game has NO other flaws that ive seen. This game is clearly amazing.

Rated 3 / 5 stars

I've been playing this game since it's release and have to finally chime in about something. I love this game, first off, the Arena mode is downright badass and rivals a lot of frag gameplay I've seen on console and full pc games out there. I love the story, but have one major issue with the 1.5 story arc. the new "zombies", or whatever they are, are WAY too cheese-happy. I can't go more than 3 minutes playing one of the levels due to these shitheads. the first room with these thing, one always grabs me and the minute I break away, another grabs me before I can even react. sometimes, after dispatching a few, the last one just keeps doing this over and over and over, until I'm dead. even on easy difficulty they STILL do this crap and I run out of lives before even getting both control panels done in the first tower level. I dont get a chance to attack, run, or dodge once I break free before another, or the same one, grab me and, eventually, kill me. for this reason, the 1.5 story will never be finished by me without some kind of balancing factor for these things.

I love the Madness series, always have, always will. I was overjoyed to find a Madness game of such sheer awesomeness hit the portal and still continue to be, not only front paged, but also one of the best games I've ever played, both on and off Newgrounds, and I'll continue to play it for the Arena mode, but until some balance issue is fixed, I'm not touching the story mode again.

Krinkels, Swain, you guys have an awesome product on your hands here and I look forward to what else you plan to do with it. just please fix those little fuckers....

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I give this a 4.5 because I would like it if your allies could level up and get up in skills themselves.
Here's an example of how I would like it: in the end of a Nexus Arena mode, you know that menu that
tells you how you've prospered? There should be little tabs at the bottom of the screen with your ally(s)'s name(s) on them. You can click that. That will show you how close THEY are to levelling up
Like you. And they should also have a budget of their own as well. This allows them to buy random weapons that are not in the armory but the same type of weapons can still be found in there. However,
they won't wield these weapons unless you say otherwise and equip them with it. I also think you should be able to sell weapons for a refund. Anyone else agree? Thumbs it up if you do. I'm not forcing you though. The choice is yours. I'm just suggesting ideas I think would be a good addition to the game.
