MadWorld is a Wii video game developed by PlatinumGames and published Sega. It is a very violent bloodfest that was inevitably rated M for Mature by the ESRB. According to the game's director, Shigenori Nishikawa, stated that the game's visuals are inspired by Frank Miller's SinCity. The game features unusually stylized graphics which are completely black and white, except the blood is red, thus resulting the game having only 3 colors.


The game focuses on the protagonist Jack, who was forced into a violent game show in which the goal is to simply stay alive. The reason for this is that a terroist organization has taken over the city in which Jack lives and have made all of its citizens fight each other. He'll take on various colossous villains and simple enemies in hopes for the grand prize of survival and $100,000,000.


The game is viewed from a third person perspective. The main character, Jack, wields a chainsaw for an arm, similar to Army of Darkness's Ash. Jack can perform attacks when the player swings with the Wii Remote. Besides using his chainsaw as a weapon, he can also use objects that he can find as well.


  • MadWorld was featured on the cover of the 20th anniversary Nintendo Power.
