Namco Bandai's Xbox Live Arcade games are lauded for two things: classic arcade gameplay and easy achievements. Mr. Driller Online departs from both of these traditions by breaking the storied gameplay and making the achievements more difficult to unlock. The single-player experience is shallow and the online is unplayable. It all begs the question: "How can you call it Mr. Driller Online without the online?"
* Single-player experience stays true to the franchise's legacy gameplay.
* One-note gameplay
* Online experience is broken
* Single-player experience is virtually identical to past installments
* Quest Driller mode only makes Standard Driller mode more mundane.
