Diamond in the Rough: XBLIG Weekly Feature

Let's be honest: A lot of the games in the XBLIG section are rubbish. But remember this is the spot that also brought you such awesomesouce like A GAM3 W1TH Z0MBIES 1N IT!!!1 and... oh there's some other ones out there, gimme a sec..

OK, well, there aren't a lot that can equal z0mbies in awesomeness, but there are still a lot of fun ones out there - and I am to show you them.

Yeah, this is campaign. So sue me. But it does show the awesome artwork this game features.

There are still a few issues with that, though. The most pressing is that you should never, never play with less than three people. Even that's pushing it sometimes. The respawn time is 15 seconds always, and your jetpack - while an excellent and in fact integral part of the game - is slow to recharge if you use it wrong. Driving across the map is generally not an option - that's for fine-tuning your shots - so if you and your only opponent are stuck super far away, it gets really boring. There are two other nagging issues - first of all, the text is super small. Be prepared for some eyestrain. Secondly, I have not yet seen anyone playing on Live. Maybe we could organize a community playdate someday. But until then, owning your friends in the living room is more than worth one dollar.

Verdict: BUY IT!

About The Samaone of us since 7:56 PM on 11.08.2010

NOTE: I will most likely reply to any comments on my blog. People keep asking questions, I answer, but no indication that they expected an answer and therefor no indication that they looked for one.


I like Halo, Dead Space and Homeworld.

I am an artist, writer and coder.

I am working on some games for the XBLIG channel.

I like discussing all kinds of game-related stuff, as well as politics and other strange subjects. Hit me up. I have no good Dtoid friends! Maybe because the interface sucks.

I really can't think of anything. I hate bios. Just read my globs (that was a typo but I'll leave it).
