Worth every Microsoft Point, this slick shooter is the new king of XBLA.
From the review: Visually the game looks good for a throw-back, top-down shooter. Trees catch fire and you can knock down telephone poles. Each enemy is distinct from the others in appearance, which helps when you train you crosshairs on Al-Queda suicide warriors that cause a huge explosion when capped. The bosses are huge and provide their own pattern-based challenges.
The sound features some nice effects and a decent score. The best that can be said is that the sound never gets annoying, which is more than can be said for a lot of XBLA titles.
Featuring a host of achievements and co-op play, Assault Heroes is a blast. The story is obviously a tongue-in-cheek play on a number of classic games and good for a laugh. With three difficulty levels -- and believe me, this game can be very tough at some points -- Assault Heroes is a challenge and one of the best XBLA titles to date."
