    It took a few matches for me to warm to it, but my god it's amazing fun once it clicks. Best way to describe it would be as an almost direct fusion of Gears, DMC, and Split/Second. Or better yet, Powerstone and Gears, with added crazy.

    It's definitely a marmite game, and I can see many struggling with it early doors, especially with the somewhat unintuitive control layout. But don't give up after the first couple of punishing bot matches and it'll all fall into place. It's a bit like Godhand in that respect, ie, once you learn the quirks and get around the initial control difficulties it's massive fun.

    I'm a bit scared to venture online so soon though, so don't know what the community is like yet. Although this would be perfect for an EG get together :)

    360

    I'd have gone for PS3 version had I known it didn't have local multi, which is a massive shame btw.

    I'd just ignored this as I'm rubbish at beat 'em ups, but a few videos have reminded me of DCUO PvP arenas. So I'm kinda interested now.

    Got my copy today on Xbox \o/

    Though sadly I've been invited to play Halo 4 before getting to install it, so I won't get to play it tonight ;(

    I also got mine today from ShopTo. Just done the first chapter in campaign and one online game so far but i'm really enjoying it! Seems like it'll just get better the more you play as well.

    There's nothing to be worried about the online smackdown thanks to the search game options; Japan/Asia/ America/Europe. We don't have to face the Japanese Destructo Masters who have been playing since day one.

    I couldn't find any games in Europe yet, it isn't really out at this moment after all, until I created a game, took a few minutes but when enough joined and we got going it was superb, chaotic, what is going on I don't know fun. We were all equally useless apart from one level 17 guy, but that's always the way. Didn't spoil the game, it was great. Mayhem all round.

    I wish I read that earlier! Going to have to restart on Normal because I can't even do the second free mission.

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    I can't for the life of me get my head around the stuns.

    I get that you can stun an opponent by breaking his guard (which takes some doing), but there are times where I've been stunned out of nowhere, even by some enemies recovering from a downed position. I get the feeling I'm missing out on some vital techniques that maybe weren't covered in the tutorial.

    I do really, really wish that the dodge roll was given it's own button. There's no need for the two right bumpers to do the same thing, and it just doesn't feel instinctive to me to quickly press RT/RB and A in the heat of the moment. Right trigger to roll, RB to block. That would feel perfect.

    Also, is there any way to avoid the satellite attack?

    edit: And holy crap does Big Bull's throws do some insane damage. There have been a few occasions where I've been in a duel with another bot, got their health down to around 50%, only for Big Bull to rock up and steal my kill by finishing him with one throw. Crazy. The Super Best Friends played it a month ago and one of them kept picking Bull and repeatedly destroyed the rest with his throws. He has some ridiculous sprinting speed as well.

    Has the PS3 version local multiplayer?

    Thanks for the heads up SomaticSense. I'm without broadband at the moment.

    Hmmm. Not really feeling this so far.

    Can't put my finger on exactly why, the whole thing just feels a bit awkward. Plus the overall design is a bit budget (yes, I know it was only 18, but still) and it looks arse.

    Defensive controls in particular are needlessly painful.

    The story in the campaign is unsurprisingly shit, however it's lacking in batshit mentalness. It just makes no sense without any proper insane charm.

    Haven't tried the online yet, but need to get to grips with things first. If I can be arsed.

    Meh.

    Neither versions do to my knowledge. I was referencing the fact I have about four 360 controllers and only the one for the PS3. I ordered
    the 360 version under the reasonable assumption there would be at least two player local multi for a game like this. Had I known then I would probably have got it on PS3.

    However bot matches are way, way more fun than the norm. So don't fret too much. Besides more time to practise is probably a good thing!

    Give it a bit of time and might to gel. I really didn't like it either at first.

    And trust me the campaign gets a damn sight more Platinum style insane once you get to the second act.

    2 matches online and I have no idea what's going on. I just seem to be the bitch on the end of everyone's rampage.

    What's the variety of fighters like? I've read a lot of reviews saying they all play pretty much identically.

    And am I right in thinking that the single player story is, essentially, Madworld 2 in all but name?
