View Full Version : need help deciding on arcade games

06-06-2008, 05:08 PM
for some reason or another, ive had the urge to stop being cheap playing demos all the time and actually buy some arcade games. ive got quite a long list of ones which ive enjoyed the demos of which i will put on here. the thing is i have 3200 msp to spend and would like to make all of the games i find worthwhile

aces of the galaxy
alien hominid hd
arkadian warriors
assault heroes
fatal fury special
heavy weapon
marble blast ultra
omega five
penny arcade game
poker smash
rez hd
sensible soccer
small arms
tetris splash

i would prefer if the game didnt have all easy achievements as i would probably lose interest in a game in the rare case that i unlock them all.

Arkadian Warriors (800)
Assault Heroes (400)
Bomberman Live (800)
N+ (800)
Small Arms (400)
Tetris Splash (800)

Those are by far the best arcade games on that list and probably on marketplace with the exception of a few others. Pick and chose from those, thats my suggestion.

There is a stickied thread in this section that goes through some arcade games: http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=50064

I looked through the thread and some of the games that you have listed and are there are:

Alien Hominid HD, N+, Doom, Bomberman Live, Sensible World Of Soccer.

Bomberman, N+, Small Arms, and Ikaruga are all really good

Assault Heroes.
Marble Blast Ultra.

Good games, also I would recommend 3D Ultra Mini Golf Adventures, unless you have already tried it. That is high up in my favorite arcade games, so fucking fun.

I would have to say:

N+ (so fun, but get ready to be pissed at the increasingly complicating levels)
Penny Arcade Episode 1
TMNT 1989 Arcade
Tetris Splash

and from what i hear Outpost Kaloki X is pretty unique and fun, too

But those other 5 are must haves. ;)

I would get :
Penny Arcade - good game and funny to play
SWOS - Great fun brings back memorys
Worms - Again funny and fun
Arkadian Warriors - Good Game

I only chose them cos I have them and I havent played any of the others, but the ones I have listed are very good, hope that helps.:):):):)

Heres the ones I would pick and my reasons.

alien hominid hd - Brain Eating Crazy Platform Madness what more do you want?
arkadian warriors - Enjoyable but gets quite repeatative near the end (its a simple dungeon diving hack and slash)
assault heroes - This game is made of pure "win" lol
bomberman - Who doesn't love bomberman? I grew up on this.. hours of multiplayer fun
penny arcade game - Brilliant turn based RPG with the same humour from the penny arcade webcomic.
poker smash - I'm not very good at this but I do love it still.
tetris splash - Very good take on Tetris with some challanging acheivements.. always plenty of people to battle online.
worms - Not as enjoyable as the originals but still very good.

Doom ftw. Great fun, amazing online for an old game, and hard but definitely doable achievements.

Bomberman is far too easy achievements to be worth 800MSP. i did all 200 points in one day :\

I'd thoroughly recommend Track & Field. Best arcade game imo.

^^ You forget the gameplay makes it worth 800MSP.

In my opinion anyway.

I'd disagree with that tbh. Of course it's an opinion thing, no wrong or right, but i just felt that the game wasn't enough fun for the price. I enjoyed it yeah, but i used to have a similar Bomberman on my pc yeaaars ago, when i was still Windows 95 i think, and i really enjoyed that, played it avidly. Can't imagine myself doing that with the XBL Bomberman. But then again, i'm am substantially older now than back then, so yeah.

Still, khamelion says he doesn't want a game with easy achievements, and Bomberman definitely fits that bracket
