I played this mostly on my steam deck. I gotta tell ya, it is fuckin' hard to play an intense game like this on the deck that requires this much joystick nuance. I have also clocked a few sessions on my desktop with an xbox elite 2 controller which is a much better experience.
As for the game itself: Love the art direction. Love the level design. Love the core game loop.
I haven't finished it yet, but I think I would like this game more if it had more of an in-your-face story rather than a plot revealed in a gone-home-esque way where info is revealed through letters and other artifacts sprinkled throughout an environment. Or maybe it would be better with no story at all. I don't know why I'm yammering on about the story, it really doesn't detract from the experience. But I can't help but feel that something extra there might have elevated the experience.
Overall: very fun highscore action game that will put your skills to the limit.
Classic Platinum Games. I love the hammy over the top story and the beat-em-up campaign. It wasn't too different from a stripped down Dynasty Warriors without objectives.
Anarchy Reigns is, at its heart, a fighting game. Which is unfortunate because there were no online games available to join. I really only have a taste of the fighting game mechanics from the single-player campaign. That was enough.
I love the combos and other fighting game mechanics. It's a fun game.
I only played for a few hours over a couple of days, but it drew me in. Remember to run/strafe and get behind enemies!
It's like skyrim before skyrim, or dark souls before dark souls. Very nonlinear, very exploratory, very not-hand-holdy. During your playthrough you find pockets of NPCs in monster free enclaves. Very interesting game.
