Madness: Project Nexus is hands down the best thing that ever happened to the franchise. Me as a little kid loved to watch the madness universe kick ass and impatiently wait for the next movie to be published. Now I can do all that and more? This game deserves 5 stars and if your a fan of side scrolling beat em ups and shooters than you owe it to yourself and The Swain to play this badass game. Since madness have rather a simple player mechanic and animations I would request a few things for the next updates or two:
- WEAPON CREATOR: Make, Mod and design your own weapon in this section. Adding a much more custom feel to Madness.

- Have an option for your madness dude to do certain things that they did in the movies, such as hold a knife backwards and shank people around with it.

- MOVE CREATOR: I know this sounds like a WTF WILL WE DO WITH THIS kinda thing, but bare with me please. You would be able to create melee moves with this, making a more customized combat feel. Grab someone and beat the shit out of them will add a more satisfying feel to combat.

Please take some time and thought to those requests. As I do not expect for any of them to be heard, perhapse if someone else likes my ideas then we can get all up in their faces. Madness: Project Nexus gets a full 5 stars from me and all the other madness fans out their! Good job Krinkles and Swain!

Anyone that wants the hidden sword medal,this is the method.Go to last stage and at the section B-1,walk into the room on your left.After that,kill everyone inside the room after you deactivate the control panel.Do not leave the room yet because the sword is in the small safe which is black in color,press spacebar and the safe will crack open.After that,grab the sword and you get the medal!

Great game, but allies need to be able to pick up a new second weapon if they lose it. The arena mode is a bit easy in my taste, you can easily 1v1 a guy with melee weapons or unarmed without losing any health. I'd also like to see stronger enemies faster, because that also means I get stronger weapons faster. Maybe this is because my laptop is rather slow (making it easier to react) and I'm not level 30 yet (which unlocks zombie mode), but I'd like a hard mode in the arena, that is always available, where enemies are a higher level and more tac-bar enemies appear, as well as them having better weapons. It'd be great if it also gave a bit more exp and money. Thanks for reading.

I'm a big fan of Madness Combat. I love every video with doll looking guys (dunno wtf they're. No human beings that for sure XD ), lots of gun fire and blood. This game gives me a chance to change the world of madness into a more awesome story.
