TeamXbox: Minesweeper Flags Hands-On Preview

TeamXbox writes: "I'm going to guess that you're reading this page because you can't find it within yourself to understand how a developer could possibly make an Xbox Live Arcade game out of Minesweeper.

Minesweeper Flags serves up three single-player gameplay modes, with the last one on the list being the original game under the Classic Mode banner.
