    Three days before the game's event, the fictional Varrigan City became a target for a group of terrorists called "The Organizers", who severed the island city's transportation and communication ties with the rest of the world, and then released a virus onto its population that would kill them in less than 24 hours. However, the Organizers informed the populace that any person that killed another would receive the vaccine. The city was quickly transformed into the stage of a recurring game show called "DeathWatch", with announcers Howard "Buckshot" Holmes and former DeathWatch fighter Kreese Kreeley. The remaining citizens of Varrigan City as well as new hopefuls become the show's contestants, hoping to become the top-ranked fighter in the game and win a large cash prize. Jack Cayman, a man with a retractable chainsaw built onto one arm, enters the games and manages to gain sponsorship from "Agent XIII".

    MadWorld was created by Platinum Games in their attempt to make a game that would be "fun and attractive" for the Wii, but that would also have a high level of violence that would make it unique among other games. Their aim was to make use of a simpler and more elegant art style, leading them to develop the black-and-white scheme. However, this choice was not due to any limitations of the Wii's hardware, according to producer Atsushi Inaba. The black-and-white motif ultimately lead to the graphic novel-type approach used in them; both Inaba and Shigenori Nishikawa acknowledged the influence of Frank Miller's Sin Cityinto the work, but also noted they borrowed from both Western and Japanese comic book styles to create a unique style. The game was developed using Softimage for creation of the game's art, and a custom engine built to handle the art aesthetic and limitations of the Wii's memory. The game's sets are completely modeled with complex lighting features, but only normal maps...

    MadWorld has received generally positive reviews from critics. In its April 2009 issue, Nintendo Power gave MadWorlda 9/10 rating. IGN gave the game a 9.0/10, praising the style, gameplay, and music, but criticizing the camera and short length, though it mentions that the hard difficulty level lengthens the game and increases the challenge considerably. Pixel Hunt called it "one of the few must-have Wii titles". StageSelect.com praised the title for its artistic game design, but stated that the overall delivery had trouble living up to the hype. About.com felt the game was more flash than substance, giving it a 3/5 and stating that, "Divorced of its unique graphics and over-the-top presentation, this is actually a rather mediocre beat-em-up." Game Informer disagreed, praising the deep combat system and arguing that "for an amateur to become a talented executioner, you'll have to lash out creatively, prolonging your victim's death through multiple phases of pain. MadWorld runs the ga...

    MadWorldhas been the subject of controversy in the United Kingdom due to its violent subject matter. John Beyer, director of mediawatch-uk, has expressed his distaste over the game's content, stating his desire for it to not receive a rating from the BBFC, which would effectively ban it from being sold. He stated "We need to ensure that modern and civilized values take priority rather than killing and maiming people." Fans' response to the organization have been hostile, accusing mediawatch-uk of being "cowards" and "narrow-minded bigots." On August 19, 2008, Sega announced that MadWorldwould not be released in Germany. Despite the fact that Australia is also known for strict video game classification, the game was released there unedited, with an MA15+ rating. One Nintendo representative has said that the Wii is a system for anybody, including adults, and that the game, like all video games, would be rated and would therefore be available for purchase to people of and above that ag...

    A mechanic, bounty hunter, former marine and ex-cop with his primary weapon as a retractable chainsaw equipped to his right arm. Jack is the protagonist and player character of MadWorld, and is voiced by Steven Blum. His other known history is that it was erased prior to DeathWatch's 2019 opening and that no specifics are given beyond nothing is certain and is definitely not as seen in the game or cut scenes.

    Jack is the star of MadWorld, the man with the chainsaw on his arm, the cigarette in his mouth, and the biggest swagger to hit Jefferson Island in years. Jack arrives on the scene in Varrigan Citywithout a sponsor, a reputation, and with no obvious reason for being there, aside from the hundred-million-dollar prize that’s up for grabs. Of course, that’s what he wants them to think. The people in the studio, the folks watching at home, even Agent XIII…none of them know about the voice in his ear, Amala. Nor does she know about the voices in his head. Jack’s mysterious past and his motivation for entering the DeathWatchGames is revealed in due time—but only to those who live to hear the tale. He has only one ambition in life and that is to kill people. He doesn't give a damn who it is either.

    "I don't help people. I kill them." (said at certain points through the game; something of a catchphrase for Jack). "Amala, I've got a chainsaw on my arm. I'll be fine." "Jack... just Jack" (when introducing himself to XIII) . "Let the games begin." (At the end of the cutscene before the tutorial) . "I had to take a piss. What, is "no pissing" part of my contract?" "...and now I found out it's all for the money. I feel so dirty." "So... this is the strip. Think I have enough time for a lap-dance?" "Who wants a piece of the champ!?" "Jack... just Jack" (when introducing himself to XIII) . "A MadWorld... I'll fit right in." "You're a fucking joke!" (when taunting enemies in gameplay).
