Having been delayed for a rather long spell to make for "a better experience", Retro City Rampage is now finally available on the Xbox Live Arcade, presenting you with the opportunity to go mad in the 8-bit open-world of Theftropolis City, mowing down the so-called 'evil' good guys.

With 40 vehicles to steal, and 25 weapons to wield on your killing spree, Retro City Rampage boasts 80 story missions and arcade challenges, as well as power-ups to collect and exploit in the game's 8-bit nostalgia-fest, that encourages players to engage in wanton 'super crime'.

Retro City Rampage is available from the Xbox Live Arcade now for 800 Microsoft Points (not 1200 MSP as initially reported). You can add it to your download queue here.

Bought it for 800 before the price gets "corrected" to 1.200. Nice surprise to see it as a valuable price!

Haha, definitely thought the title said 'River City Ransom' instead of 'Retro City Rampage.' Now THAT would be a game I would buy (no offense to Retro City Rampage).

#4 those are my hopes as well. Goddamn does that game look good. My computer can't even run it, and I hate computer-gaming, but if I could, I would.

@ 2

It's a blast on the Vita. I was playing it last night before bed. My only thing is that while on the Vita it's great, cause of the small screen. I don't see how much fun I would have playing an 8-bit game on a 50inch tv.

The parodies alone make this game an instant hit. I love it, but again I think it's a perfect handheld game.

The surprise price drop is very welcome. Although I still would've bought if it was 1200.

It's already a great value at $15 (unlike most other $15 titles). But $10? You should all go buy it right now, great game. Seriously, stop reading this and go buy Retro City Rampage for $10!

Looks interesting, I'll try a demo of it first before make a decision to buy it or not.

People who made comment about PS3, you all can go to hell and we don't give flying f about people get it for free from PS+, etc. So if you want to say something about ps3 or vita, go on its sister website and f u c k off!

Finally! Can someone tell me if it's worth the 800? I'm desparate to get it, but cash situation is making me carefully decide what I purchase.

or wait for the DOTW that will happen a few months out. That will drop the price to 600.

@14 : Too much games to play, personally. I bought some XBLA games several times (like Mark of the Ninja) and didn't got the time to play it that it was already in a deal of the week so now, I'm waiting to have the time to play the game before buying it.

(or at least, a deal of the week, because you can't have it cheaper than that).

I am going to buy this game specifically because Jim Sterling and Jonathan Holmes from Dtoid's Podtoid are in it.

Looks fun.

Wow, didn't expect it to be 800msp. Might pick it up now, even though I just bought 7 arcade games with the discounts last week.

Played it last night - awesome game and definitely worth the 800MSP. The 80's pop-culture cameo's and the hilarious story make it worth the price alone! :D

Its free for Playstation Plus subcribers. I have it on the Vita and its an ok game. Not worth $10 in my opinion. Wait for it to be on the deal of the week, it may be worth $5.
