Madworld Trailer Evokes Smash TV, Elicits Cringing

This trailer of Platinum Games' MadWorld (Wii) calls to mind Smash TV and Running Man, while using a weak SportsCenter-esque presentation to drive home the game's concept.

The highly-stylized action title centers around a Jack, a chainsaw-armed dude battling to the death on a television show. A major hook of the game is environmental interaction, with plenty of Wii Remote-activated animations leading to grisly deaths.

MadWorld is set to arrive on the Wii early this year. BOOM video 1434
