Exactly what it says on the tin. 0

''What the fuck just happened?!'' is something I found myself almost routinely exclaiming/shouting/screaming/gurgling during my time playing Anarchy Reigns, the latest brawler from top-quality developer Platinum Games. A sort-of sequel to the Wii-exclusive Mad World, Anarchy Reigns twists the 'franchise' upside down, trading in its single-player focussed, arena combat origins for a multiplayer brawler.

Technical Ruination. 0

If you read the title you might think it sounds harsh. Ruined means the game experience is completely made irrelevant by the issue at hand. Unfortunately I am only mildly exaggerating.
