Is it Good?

How is this game? Is it worth the 800 points?

Yes it is worth it. Very fun. You drive a tank in a side scrolling environment and shoot stuff. You move the tank with the left stick and shoot with the right stick. Many powerups and "Supaweapons" to build. Well worth it.

Based off the demo alone, I must respectfully disagree. It's boring, it's way too easy, and the boss battles suck. I can't even imagine it getting that much more difficult during the course of the full game. I didn't die once, and I think I only got hit a couple times. Not worth 800 points from my perspective.

I tried the demo and just like Seandor, I didn't think it was good. But if the full game is great, then I might buy it.

it gets much harder as you move thru the game. one plane drops bombs that are instant death if they reach the ground no matter where you are on the screen, co-op is a blast. come on 4 player fun?
good times well worth the MS points

This is easily one of my favorite XBLA games, worth the 800 points. Single-player was fun, the difficulty does ramp up significantly. But the multi-player was a blast! The amount of insanity on the screen in those 4-player survival games!

the demo doesn't do this game any justice. like everyone else is saying, later in the game the difficutly ramps up and it becomes a glorious glitch fest...online is addictive...and the boss blitz one you beat the game is a fun challenge...deff. worth the points...top 5 arcade for sure

Agreed. Instant classic. I put it at number 3 under my beloved Geometry Wars and Lumines... I seriously have no need for these "retail" games.

Even the first mission is harder in the actual game than in the demo. The first boss fires 4 missiles at a time, where it fired 2 in the demo.

Great game and old time favorite. Its easier with a joypad than with a mouse on pc, though.

The 4 player online is a blast to play, and the campaign gets alot harder later on, well worth the MS points.

I got through all of the multi-player stuff the first night- and it was unadulterated fun. The single player is mighty tough once you get past level 8. I wish that it was a little easier- but had some longevity achievements thrown in. In that respect I like Feeding Frenzy a little more- design wise.

Not for the Casual Gamer

I don't know about anyone else but as soon as i started playing the demo i was hooked... and i dont like to spend money on arcade games... but this game actually made me... and it was awesome... and painful to the core at times.... this game's difficulty as u progress will literally kick ur pants off.... and boss blitz mode will make the haters eat their words... i played that mode for 3 days nonstop just to beat it.... its a lousy achievement credit of 25 points but a worthy achievement that not everyone can get... therefore im glad i have the achievement.. and online play was fun until i got all the achievements for it.... then i bounced.... lol... come on im not wasting that much time online for it... in conclusion this game will kick ur butt so give it a try... p.s. u will lose ur temper in certain levels... (14 thru 19) HAVE FUN

I personally enjoyed it a lot... I played it a bit on PC too, before I got it here, so I knew what I was getting at least. =-)

good comments. one of my arcade faves, and made me laugh out loud more than a couple of times with the cold war humor. i'm usually biased against games on arcade that are available free online elsewhere, but this is the exception. get it.
