That was, I feel, not only the most awesome but most eye-opening, story-driving addition to the greatest online series ever that is Madness Combat. There's so much I loved about this, but I don't want this review to be 16 paragraphs long, so lemme keep it brief...
The action and choreography, as always, was insane. I especially liked it when those shield-barriers came out for the first time, and from there it got more and more crazily awesome. The whole time I felt a little nervous for our heroes Sanford and Hank, I was scared they were going to lose and I didn't want them to die again to Tricky or the Auditor. I also felt really bad for Sanford when he got slammed into that wall from like a mile a way, his expression and the way he just kept clenching himself... :( he just looked like he lost all hope... BUT THEN HANK CAME IN AND SAVED HIM!!! :D
I feel this is such an important addition to Madness Combat because, for the first time (disregarding the Deimos Adventure), we're possibly seeing what is a mechanical explanation as to what happens when characters die; this sort of Purgatory world (which is actually surprisingly similar to somewhere in Nevada) seems to have portals and opportunities for characters to come back into life. Perhaps Hank has been here and played this game so many times that it wasn't such a shocker to him?
I still have so many curiosities, such as what does the halo mean, what can it do, where did it come from, why was it rejected from Hank in MC10, is the clown truly dead now, how did the Auditor make it back out, how did Hank get that sort of metal arm, how is it that when they die in the Purgatory world they seem to come back on a different level, what are those levels adskifjaDOKFJDKOFDK AAAAAAAAAH MY MIIIIIIIND!!!!!!!! WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT!?!?!?!?!?
Either way, AMAZING WORK, KRINX!! That was so worth the wait and I just can't wait to see with what you come out next!! I've been watching this series since I was in 4th grade and I'm 22 now lol. I just love this series so much. THANK YOU AND GOOD LUCK!!!
