Platinum Games’ first title was the critically well-received, but commercially unsuccessful, Nintendo Wii game “MadWorld.” Featuring an incredibly stylized design, and a level of blood and inventive violence one would not expect to find on the supposedly family-friendly Wii console, MadWorld is an unfortunate story of a great game on the wrong platform. With Anarchy Reigns, some of the concepts from MadWorld are making their way to the right platforms, and Jack gets a second chance to shine.
Previously the star of MadWorld, Jack now finds himself in Anarchy Reigns. At 42 years of age, Jack is still going strong. With a chainsaw for an arm, he bears an uncanny resemblance to Ash from the Evil Dead series, which is a good thing. What does he have that Ash doesn’t have, though? A retractable double-bladed chainsaw, Gator Tooth, where his right arm once was. Mostly human, Jack is a whopping 7’2″ and 507 lbs (2.18 meters and 230 kgs.), with that double-chainsaw surely accounting for a good portion of his weight.
