    Average Platinum fan wasn't really into multiplayer which was the main appeal of the game. It's a shame since it was really cool if you got to experience it while it was active.

    It was pretty mid. One of those multiplayer games you play for a couple weeks and then move on.

    awful netcode, but i still wish they would rerelease it on modern hardware so badly

      It was funny how the broken netcode made certain combos possible or even enhanced their damage

    Capcom fricked it over by delaying the western release by several months to make their quarterly reports look better, splitting the community irreparably.

      Platinum becoming a publisher was one of the worst things to happen to that company

      you guys seem to be forgetting that there was a huge 6 month gap between the JP and Western debut, the demo dropped and all hype for the game dissipated by the time it came for release. I still blame SEGA for this shit 100 percent since they were the publisher

    It was kind of ahead of the curve on the BR trend.

    Exploits.
    Each launch had about a month with a solid player base before everyone was abusing KW glitch and infinite dodging.
    Those two exploits made the game zero fun

    Sega tried everything they could to make it fail. Fricked up the release dates. Refused to patch it. Zero marketing.

    They seemed very eager to see the end of their 5 game deal with Platinum.

      Sega hated Plat by the end of that deal and for good reason. Kamiya is fricking impossible to work with and is perpetually WAY over budget and WAY past deadline which made them super pissed when Bayo didn't turn a real profit, and mad world/Vanquish had dramatically underperformed.

        Sega must've known how risky it was to sign up with a team who's last two games were God Hand and Okami and let them make whatever they want.

    It’s a damn shame. I at least hope they remake the first game on Switch or the next system since the Joycons could work well with it.

    Wasn't bayonetta a blatant op p2w character

    3 reasons, it's extremely unbalanced. You have characters like Mathilda and Ai Rin who could combo video you into another dimension, Blacker Baron could pick a perk and with lag compensation 1 shot you. By the end of the games lifespan which was months at best post US Release. Big Bull gained tech making him a character with no flaws.

    Reason 2 being that SEGA clearly had a vendetta against Platinum Games during this time, canceling Bayonetta 2 and delaying Anarchy Reigns by 6 months from the Japanese release.

    Reason 3 being it was an arena brawler that had a battle royale and soccer/football game modes. Years before all 3 types.

    It was just too far ahead of its time and SEGA wanted it killed.

    Small playerbase + awful netcode.
    One of the greatest missed opportunities in the entire medium, a sequel that realises everything this game proposed would be phenomenal.

    >Jack in Madworld: Cold-blooded cigar-smoking remorseless killer, says five words the whole game. Likes shoving ten stop-signs through someone's face and then throwing them in a wood chipper
    >Jack in Max Anarchy: Quit smoking because its bad for you. Has flashbacks of sitting on a park bench playing bouncy ball with "muh dead daughter," only kills for social justice. All blood replaced by green and blue paint, muh mutants, muh cyborgs.

      Yeah, this sums it up nicely. Mad World was over the top while Anarchy Reigns was under the top.

    if this released on PC right now it would be huge enough for regular Ganker weekend AR

    Game was really fun, had a great time playing with Ganker back in the day.
    What I wish is characters to be more unique. They were really samey with same combos and strings and only few had something special among them.

    I think it was a game ahead of its time. Years later whole "hero shooter" genre emerged but Platinum had it way before it with top tier waifus too. A shame we never got PC port, I imagine this game could survive with a small dedicated community.

    Pretty much all non-flagship multiplayer games/modes "failed" on release by that point in the generation.

    platinum fans expected another high quality single player action game, but a fighting game story mode with all the reused assets and talking heads that implies
    people that would be interested for the presentation or actually want a multiplayer arena fighting game got filtered by the game having complicated inputs instead of being an auto combo string masher anime game
    no local multiplayer but also the netcode isn't nearly good enough for a game like this so you would just lag teleport into blacker baron shinryuken and die randomly and sega not advertising it at all

    TLDR: everything. this might be the single missmanaged game ever that was actually potentially good
