Let's See who the Craziest is

MadWorld Screenshot

HIGH De-fleshing Jude the Dude with his own guns, then blowing apart his naked skeleton for good measure.

LOW The distinct lack of unlockables. Platinum is the reincarnation of Clover Studios, after all.

WTF "It's like when you're surfing porn on the toilet for 12 hours—when you do get up, it ain't a pretty sight."

Game Description: Sega's Madworld is an inventive third-person action game exclusively for Wii. Produced by Atsushi Inaba, MADWORLD has a unique black and white style depicting an incredibly sharp backdrop that straddles graphic novels and 3D worlds. As players battle opponents, they must master the use of various weapons and items found within their environment, such as chainsaws and street signs, while entertaining sports commentary adds to the third-person gameplay. With its irreverent humor and over-the-top violence, MADWORLD will deliver a unique core gaming experience currently missing on the Wii system.

HIGH As with any mini-game collection, having a great time with my loved ones.

LOW Well that got boring quick.

LOW Trying to pull off the QTE inputs for some of the special moves.

WTF "My hatred of men gives me strength."

Tournament of Legends

Game Description: Feel the Real Clash of Titans. Become a legend in epic weapon and magic duels against the biggest fighters of world mythology.

HIGH Steven "Don't call me Steve" Heck.

LOW The '80s-themed boss fight against a knife-wielding cokehead who somehow is still talking after taking ten bullets in the face.

WTF Let me get this straight: a brilliant intelligence analyst lost track of his own daughter because she took her mother's maiden name?

Alpha Protocol

Game Description: The year is 2009. Worldwide political tensions are at a breaking point when a commercial airliner is shot down by a U.S. missile over Eastern Europe, killing all aboard. The U.S. government claims no involvement, and dispatches Agent Michael Thorton to investigate and bring those responsible to justice. As the first modern day spy role-playing game, Alpha Protocol offers unprecedented control over the development of Thorton’s abilities and his interactions with other characters. Upgrade skills such as physical combat, weapons mastery, cutting-edge technology and even seduction as you grow in experience and complete missions.
