Bah, Castlevania should not be the exception when it comes to XBLA games. Just wait for the Bionic Commando remake, Street Fighter 2 remake...and'll all be worth it.

These stupid puzzle games are getting old. And Microsoft charging 10 bucks makes them very easy to ignore.

I never played Mr. Driller but always wanted to when it came out for the Dreamcast. But I won't pay up 10 bucks for this. I'm saving my points for SF2HD, Commando 3 (it brings a beta of SF2HD), and Ikurga.

What Microsoft needs to do is yes, stop releasing so many god damn puzzle games. Release more fighting games and classic beat em ups on XBLA. I'm tired of all these god damn puzzle games and even original titles because sereriously, I just want to play classic games knowing a lot of these original title games aren't that great. Very few are.

Also, they seriously need to lower prices on older XBLA games. They did it with DOOM and that other game but they seriously need to lower a lot of 400 point games to 160 points.

Well better having something released rather than nothing. I'm not complaining that we get at least one XBLA game a week. Sure most of them are crap, but at least it isn't PSN.

Dude, Thorpe, I'd get Theme Hospital in a heartbeat. I love that game. I can only imagine the crazy achievements that would come along with it. Maybe..."Treat every disease available". Haha, or "Have 1000 people total die in your hospitals". I'd get that one quick. :-(

Back to topic...yeah, I was never a Mr. Driller fan. I can't seem to get into most of the Live games, much less the classics. ha ha, I'm too picky for M$ to make any money off of me. :-p

Another puzzle game, again priced at 800 points.

Epic failure. Just reduce the price of some older games if this is all the new stuff they have up their sleeve.

Who said theme hospital?!

Great call - any decent theme/sim game would be fantastic, I mean Outpost Kaloki X was a great little sim - we need more of that genre though!!!!!


(except Theme Tower... that was a bit naff)

Bah, more shoot-em-ups. Classic arcade action right there. I'm still disappointed that the Raiden collection is going to be full price (or somewhere near that).

To be fair I don't mind new puzzle games at all, it's just the re-releasing of crap retro games that I don't have time for.

I remember playing MR.Driller on a demo disk on the ps1. It was actually damn good. So I'll probably get this.

I never played it and will not juge the game itself, but im tired of seeing puzzle game all the time on XBLA, there was a time when you would have a good old classic beat em all sidescroll every 2 or 3 weeks...i haven't buy anything for months now.... Double Dragon 2, Contra 3, TMNT Turtles in times, BattleToad, Quake 3 Arena, Killer Instinc 2, thats the kind of game i want to see on the XBLA... But no , we used to have 2 games per week, now its 1 game and its a puzzle game...guess i will save some cash...
