Golden Axe
Game Rating - ****
Ease of Achievements - ****
Replay Value - ***
Cost - 400MSP


A classic hack and slash, side scrolling game, you run through levels button mashing to defeat hoards of enemys. Achivements are VERY easy to get, the only one that would cause trouble is finishing the game without using a continue. Altough short (finishable in around 30 mins) still extremely fun
Well worth the 400MS points if your into that type of classsic game.

????? There is one there already for Golden Axe and you appear to say exactly the same thing as me...



Good effort though.

You should have put it in alphabetical order to make it easier to browse through and find games that people want an opinion to read about, plus a list in the first thread saying which games you have put in and which number post they are in (as well as/instead of alphabetical organisation).

Good list so far.

This is an awesome thread nicely done guys.
I love arcade games so I will gladly contribute to the list, again great work!

I will add luxor 2 to the list as soon as I finish the game, so I may give a good review

Omega Five
Game Rating - *****
Ease of Achievements - **
Replay Value - ****
Cost - 800 MSP

One of the best side scrolling shooters available on Xbox Live Arcade! This game has four 3D levels with surprisingly amazing graphics. You and a friend can choose between four characters to shoot down wave after wave of enemies that attack you even from the background. Controls are fairly simple, left joystick to move, and right joystick to control fire. Achievements can be difficult depending on skill level, namely the four achievements you get for completing the game with each character without dying. Definetly a must have for any one looking for a great game with awesome graphics and gameplay, well worth the 10 dollars/pounds.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...ad.php?t=52063

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Feeding Frenzy
Game Rating - ***
Ease of Achievements - *****
Replay Value - *
Cost - 800MSP

Great game for young children, other than that the game is very repetitive and easy. You start off as an angel fish and slowly move your way through 50 levels, each starting you at the bottom of the food chain. You eat other fish and get gradually bigger in size racking up points and lives all the while. Achievements are VERY simple, however are time consuming. Good graphics and humorous the first couple of levels and the first time you eat a shark!

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...ead.php?t=4771
----------------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE:

Arkadian Warriors
Game Rating - *****
Ease of Achievements - *****
Replay Value - ***
Cost - 800MSP

If your an RPG fan you will love this game. You can choose between 3 different characters, a warrior, an archer, and a sorceress. It has online and local co-op; the graphics look great and the game play is smooth as can be. An awesome feature of the game is the ability to turn into a large animal and wreak havoc. The achievements are all fairly easy to get, by the time you finish the game you should have all of them. The only negative I have for the game is that it is a little on the short side and definitely, leaves you wanting more. Overall a great game well worth the 800MSP.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...ad.php?t=48576
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Aegis Wing
Game Rating - *****
Ease of Achievements - ***
Replay Value - ***
Cost - FREE!!!

Aegis Wing is a side-scrolling shooter created by Microsoft interns, which is why it is free, where humans have to fight for their new planet against a race known as the Araxia. Aegis Wing is one of the best side-scrollers simply because of it's multiplayer gameplay. You can play with 3 other friends locally or over xbox live and all of the achievements are obtainable playing multiplayer. The gameplay is smooth and fun, you can join your airships together forming one more powerful one, with one player steering and the rest firing. There are also four power-ups you can get by destroying enemy ships: Seeking Missiles, Laser Beams, Bubble Shields, and a Vacuum that sucks away enemy fire and turns enemies into stationery targets. The achievements are simple enough to get except for ACE which requires a little more skill and a lot of luck, easy 175 points. A must have game, come on download it's free and a blast!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Boogie Bunnies
Game Rating - ***
Ease of Achievements - ****
Replay Value - ***
Cost - 800MSP

Boogie Bunnies is a puzzle game in which you have to pair up three or more of the same color bunny. The bunnies are all moving down screen until they drop in the water which causes you to lose. Graphics for the game are colorful, kids should love this game. The game is actually quite long, the achievements are obtainable, but require time (5-10 hours). You can play local co-op, co-op over xbox live, or just play one of three single player modes. Matching certain colors of bunnies gives certain effects: Cyan Bunnies make all the bunnies "boogie" increasing the amount of points for each combination, Red Bunnies cause an explosion which knocks out adjacent bunnies, Purple Bunnies knock out full columns and rows.
Not a bad game if you like puzzles, again children should have a blast with it, or wifes who enjoy a good puzzle game.

Gotcha, thanks haha, I wasn't even paying attention I was too busy trying to write the reviews sorry.
I've been trying to figure something out that I could contribute to the site, and I finally found something and got a "litttle" too excited haha

I changed the Omega Five review a bit, it was a poor review when I read through it hopefully it's good enough to not get shunned haha

Amazing thread. I love to see someone put so much work into things. Unfortunately, I am out of Microsoft points, making this thread useless for me. I'm sure that one of my x360a brethren can gift me some points!

Puzzle Quest


(Not sure if that's the cover picture)
Game Rating-****
Ease of Achievements-****
Replay Value-**
Cost- 1200MSP

In this game they mix RPG elements and Puzzles, now I'm not a big fan of puzzles but this game really surprise me the puzzles never seem to get annoying as the system is easy to grasp, If you've ever play the old game Bejeweled you'll notice a few similarities. But for me the great part of this game wasn't the puzzles it was the other elements you can choose a class, level up your skills, choose which allies you want to use (All of which have special bonuses), Train mounts, Capture people, and even take over cities (so if you can't tell there’s a lot to do). And to make this game even better the achievements almost all unlock as you play through the story or do the really easy stuff there is really only one challenging achievement in the game (Master Craftsman). But the bad thing about this game is the replay value after you finish this game you don't exactly feel a burning desire to play through it again but I think that first play through is definitely worth the points I've had more fun with this than I've had with a lot of Retail games.

I know you may not agree with this TC, but i think robotron is a quality game. i've spent countless hours on it trying to get to wave 10 (i can only get too wave 7) and there are actually 200 waves!!!! The game is hard, and sure dosen't have good graphics, but i find it really enjoyable. Whenever i start to egt bored with a retail game, i just hop on robotron. I also got it for free with a code anyway, and boy i would have paid about 100 points for this quality game

Wow, no ones done ones of Streets of Rage 2 or Castlevania?

I'd review, but I'm partially biased toward them. I will say that SoR2's netcode blows goats though. Horrible lag unless you have someone close (reminds me of playing the X-box version of Guilty Gear: XX: The Midnight Carnival: #Reload *try saying that three times fast*) to play with, or a good connection to host.

I think the replay is MUCH higher in puzzle quest. It and Carcassonne are the two I come back to the most.
