How many of you actually like this game?

Just as the title states, how many of you actually LIKED this game? I, for one, think it is one of the worst arcade games out there. I just got it because it was free.

It's not perfect, and gets pretty frusterating on Ultra. But for free it was an awesome deal, but if you would have had made me pay, I would have anyway.

Let's just say it can be real fun sometimes. Other times it hurts my feelings when I die so much.

Not the greatest, and not the worst. Average game IMO. But, again, can't complain since it was free.

I thought it was very enjoyable. Grant it I would not have forked over 800 points for it but since many of us got it for free I think it was a great game for being a free one.

Its fun on co op or multiplayer. But the single player gets boring or frustrating on Ultra. Its good for a free game

I found it fun, but the moment you plonk it on ultra, solo, you've got yourself a frustrating game.

But for free, I'm pleased I got it.

I dont think it is the worst arcade game but it isnt the best either. But no one can complain about a free game.

If you're playing on casual the game is quite enjoyable but when it's on ultra that game's faults shine through. I really f****** hate Ultra, it's so cheap and the AI is practically non-existant.

I really enjoy this game, and like john said Ultra is so hard, and the AI is pretty cheap.

I hated it when it first hit the Marketplace.. I downloaded the demo and thought it was trash. But then when it was free, I got the full game and got pretty addicted to it. Once you get the hang of it, it's really fun.. especially in co-op missions. Not worth 800 points... but definitely was awesome for free. Once I got 200/200 though I stopped played... 10,000 kills was a lot of Undertow, haha.

I can relate to this.

It reminds me a lot of Soldat (except without gravity =P ) which I was addicted to for a long time.
