Here's what you need to consider when you look at Mad World:
- Devil May Cry
- Resident Evil 1
- Resident Evil 2
- Resident Evil 4
- Viewtiful Joe
Because Platinum Games is the company founded by Shinji Mikami, Atsushi Inaba and Hideki Kamiya.
All else is irrelevant. All you need to know is that the game is probably going to be innovative, feature very strong and consistent art direction, and be overly long and very difficult.
I am probably going to buy it, because Kamiya is a god.
