Why doesn't the site review arcade games? I don't see why not.

Yes taht would be an awesome idea but x360a would have to give the reviewers microsoft points for them to dl the games and they might abuse the free points maybe that is why it is still an idea

You don't think we purchase/rent games we review with our own money? This isn't a paid job, dude. Companies do send us review copies of some games, but the rest we review are ones we've planned on buying anyway or have decided to rent for points/review purposes.

The truth is, we'd like to, but we don't have the time. Retail titles are the priority.

I would rather know the rating of I game that I can't trade in or sell, then one that I can. I could always sell a retail game if I don't like it, but with arcade games you are stuck. That is why we need the reviews.

Our opinion can only go so far though. Actually playing a game is the only true test if you are going to like it, and every arcade game has a demo.

Like I said, this is something we'd like to do but it isn't a priority at the moment.
