View Full Version : Need a Fun, Long Arcade game

08-13-2009, 11:54 PM
Hey guys, I'm really excited for Batman: Arkham Asylum and I can't wait for 2 weeks until it comes out so I asked my dad if can get some points and I got 1000 MP. I have no idea what to get but a really fun, long-lasting game that'll at least last me a week. So, I really need your help. Please post a reply on what long, fun arcade game I could get till Batman comes out. Thanks guys.

Cant really think of one for less than 1000, if you get an extra 200 you can get Shadow Complex next week, reported to be 10-12 hours and multiple playthroughs needed for full 200G

Trials HD, very fun and addictive plus you can create and share levels!

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Great game, and it's pretty long especially if you go for the achievements (there's one exploring every part of the map). As long as you don't play it way too much it should last you a week, if not more.

Battlefield 1943 is by far the best game on the XBLA. It'll cost you 1200msp though, but then again, most of the good ones do. IMO if World at War didnt have Zombies I would consider BF:1943 a better WW2 game.

Castle Crashers is a pretty fun game too, also 1200 and fun to play in co-op.

'Splosion Man is good for a laugh if you want something different. I think it is 800 points but it might be less.

banjo and kazooie is a good arcade game and takes about 12 hours

Banjo Kazooie is very good and long, but I don't know if it'll last a week, here are some tips:
-You can buy TWO gamesthat cost 400MP Small Arms is like Smash Bros, recommend it and Lumines Live is preety cool and addictive
- DUKE NUKEM 3D, is and excellent shoote,r better than Gears of War in my book, and it'll keep you playin it for more than a week, there are lots of levels, secrets, online coop (if you want to play send me a FRequest) and deathamatch.
- Marvel vs Capcom 2 : Best arcade in XBL for me, lots of fun, but if you don't like to be owned by weirdos in xbox live or get easily frustrated don't buy it. Achievements difficult
- Peggle : Highly addictive and lots of fun, will alst more than weeks, with the challenges and all, the achievements are difficult, and again you need to be patient with this one, but it's great.
- PUzzle Quest is amazing, addictive gameplay lots of hours of gameplay
TRY THEM :d Hope you enjoy your game

N+ is pretty fun if you're into platforming and the feeling of accomplishment after a million tries.

08-14-2009, 01:25 PM
For 800MSP I recommend Banjo Kazooie.

08-14-2009, 02:39 PM
I'd recomend Battlefield myself, I can't get it since I don't have gold though, but saw my friend playing it.

Or there is Banjo Kazoie.....or even Sam & Max Save the World too....or even Monkey Island, sure, it's not too long....can be beat in under 3 hours, but it is rather fun.

Or if not, Crosswords, why? Cause they can take ages to finish....and they are hard, even the real easy ones! (well, to me they are....since I suck at crosswords XD)

I'd have to say Feeding Frenzy. By far addicting, fun, time consuming achievements (not hard at all) the hardest achievement in the game is play for a total of 10 hours, that's it. I think it's only 800MP and I definently recommend it. :)

08-15-2009, 05:38 PM
Yah, I got a lot of Arcade games. Maw, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, Battlefield 1943, Castle Crashers, Small Arms, Boom Boom Rocket, Pac Man Championship, Feeding Frenzy, UNO, and Luxor 2. But most of those games got boring to me.

The first puzzle quest took me a while to finish. its fun too.

08-15-2009, 05:43 PM
Alien Hominid.. I think its 400MSP though.

08-15-2009, 05:45 PM
N+ is the perfect game you then. hours of fun!

08-15-2009, 05:45 PM
You could get 2 Sonic games. Although they're not very long, they're fun and the achievements are easy.

08-15-2009, 06:00 PM
Have you played trials HD yet?it says it has over 50 levels. that should keep you going for a while.

08-15-2009, 06:17 PM
For 800 points you can buy: 'Splosion Man (i'm enjoying it a lot especially in coop mode), Castlevania (it takes a lot of time to complete it 100%), Duke Nukem 3D (one of the best fps's ever) or you can buy Doom and Wolfenstein 3D (which will last you quite a while) and spend your remaining points for Dig Dug or for other stuff like gamerpics/themes.
