New Game Network: "Trenched is a new game developed by Double Fine Productions, published by Microsoft for the Xbox Live Arcade. This is the second of three Xbox Live games that Double Fine has promised. Double Fine has a strong history of very funny games, which we all know, is unique in this business. With Trenched, they introduce their style to the world of arcade games, throwing their hat into the ring with a unique sensibility that is funny and captivating. Trenched combat borrows largely from games like Mech Assault with level design ripped from Tower Defense - you know what I'm talking about, the ones you see all over the internet. The concept isn't very original, but it's fun and addicting. And it's for real this time."
