I love this game like I love the series!
I have only been playing for 2 days and I've already maxed out Melee!
I have also hired Deimos, Sanford, Krinkels and The Swain, and I am also level 25.
The game is good because it's style is the exact same as the animations which gives me a feeling of 'Am I in the animation?'
It's brilliant, but it is occasionally laggy but not too much, I think it depends on what you are playing on, and the bodies cause lag, and it's kind of forced since you have to kill in this game to really do anything.
I also like the effects that occur when you're on the story mode menu, when you complete a level and also die (as Hank, I haven't died once on the story mode until I got to the last level of Episode 1.
If only I had more weapons.
As I said before, with the feel of 'Am I in the animation?' the effects basically make it look like a Madness Combat animation with a twist of you get to make the characters do stuff.
The Arena combat can also be a pain when you die due to the length of each wave. Heck, I can 1 shot every enemy with my binary sword but it would still take around 30 seconds to a minute to beat Wave 1.
The upgrade points had confused me once because I remember it giving me 5 points then the next level up back to the standard 3.
I think this may have happened because I had used a point and forgot about the rest until that level up but I clearly remembered using all the points.
Nonetheless, the amount of people you can hire are insane - you can even hire the main characters and the developers!
I remember when I first used Krinkels (today) I said 'He should have the best equipment in the game! He's the creator!'
This game is the perfect game for a Madness fan.
Unless your computer/laptop sucks, then R.I.P.
