Is Madworld worth it's current price of $19.99?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Is Madworld worth it's current price of $19.99?

The big problem for me with this game is the difficulty. The first 3 or 4 levels the enemies just wait for you to kick their asses. So naturally I got bored of that.

I later played it on hard mode and had a lot more fun.

Gamerace, you will definitely lose your bet with stof. Red Steel 2 is definitely having an option for people to buy the WM+ bundle. I saw the pre-order package at Gamestop yesterday. It will be $60 for Red Steel 2 with the WM+.

As for Madworld-- I think it is a good game and it is dirt cheap on amazon right now.

LOL - Yeah.  I noted that in another thread on RS2 release date.   Better change my sig...



 

No, it is not. I paid $12 or $13 (can't remember) and I still feel ripped off. I have no idea why its reviews were decent at all, let alone higher than NSMB Wii on IGN (yeah, I know).

Biggest disappointment in a while. Gonna sell my copy, I hope I can get more than $5 back from this mess.



Well I think it is on Amazon UK now for jusy £3.87 or something... I am considering buying it as I could probably sell it for £3 at CEX..... so 87p is worth almost any game.

 

Holy crap what the hell is this? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Cross-over-Ethernet-Network-Cable-CAT5e/dp/B00007FV5M/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&s=miscellaneous&qid=1263846186&sr=8-12

a 2 metre crossover cat-5.... and some joker is pricing it at £999, is there something special about it I am missing?

glad people agree with my view, got blasted for posting that when the game was released. I bought the game for $10.00 new, so i couldn't be happier. At least i was one of the few people who actually bought the game.....



The negatives:

The game is way too short.  My file read 3:39 after I was done with it.

The combat eventually gets extremely repetitive.  You can put a garbage can over an enemy's head, run them through with a sign post, and whip them repeatedly into a wall of spikes.  Also, you can slice them up with your chainsaw.

The contrived wannabe Running Man story is horrendous.  It tries to make a simple beat 'em up into something more than it is and falls miserably on it's face in this respect.

The commentators' jokes in the background are extremely juvenile and worst of all, not funny.

 

I would suggest picking up No More Heroes at the same price over this though if you don't have it.  It's a much better game.

I agree that the game is short,however that time exclude cutscene,the time spend in menus (unlike other games) and hard mode.

Anybody can call any game repetitive but you are actually saying this about a beat em up and those games are repetitive by nature...usually you have a button to punch and another to kick and thats pretty much it gameplay wise so i have to ask why buy a button mashing game if you don't like button mashing games? Also you really should have explored more because everything you said can be done in the tutorial,you can throw them out of a window,throw them in a fireplace,throw them in a fishtank full of piranhas and many more (all of this in a single level)

Not a huge fan of the story either but i loved the ending.

This is very subjective and not a real complain about the game itself but just personal taste.

You can say alot of things about No More Heroes like the game is funnier but a better game? No,all you do is spam A so the repetition in combat is actually alot worst,terrible level design,terrible AI (the AI in MW is bad too),worst overworld in video game history (and the game forces you to spend most of your time in it,repetition of the side missions is forced on the player to really beat the game. (etc)

I'd say that's about exactly what it's worth.  Take this as you will. 

Don't get me wrong.  There is fun to be had.  If there wasn't, it wouldn't be worth anything.

The positives:

Jack is a cool character in the mold of Snake Plisken that does things his own way.  He also wears a jacket that has a wicked looking logo that looks great on a video game cover.  Oh... he also has a chainsaw attached to his arm.

The combat initially impresses.  You can put a garbage can over an enemy's head, run him through with a sign post, and then whip him repeatedly into a wall of spikes.  Also, you can just slice them up with your chainsaw.

The boss battles are interesting and fun.  My favorite was probably the one against the guy on the motorcycle ( I forget his name).

The game definitely is cool looking and has a lot of style going for it.

So there you have it.  I don't feel ripped off for picking up Madworld at $19.99, but would have been extremely upset if I had bought it at $49.99.  If this is your type of game, then it's worth it at this price.  I would suggest picking up No More Heroes at the same price over this though if you don't have it.  It's a much better game. 

For those of you who have played it, do you agree or disagree with Madworld being worth exactly $19.99 or any of the points that I discussed above?

 

 

 

Yes.

I bought it for 9.99 from Best Buy, and the last hour or so I was kind of on cruise control and was hoping the game would just end! That is not good for a 3 hour game! It might be worth $10, but that is it!
