Who doesn't like a good hack and slash RPG? They don't take up too much brainpower, they allow you to slice and dice goblins, and there's tons of nifty gear to find and collect. Hell, Diablo and its sequel sold like a ho-billion copies! Apart from Gauntlet, though, Xbox Live Arcade hadn't really tapped into the hack-and-slash market...until Arkadian Warriors, that is. Developed by the guys behind the awesome Assault Heroes, Arkadian Warriors feels very much like Diablo Lite, lacking the depth and variety of Blizzard's RPG, but considering the 10 dollar pricetag...that's to be expected.
UGO gives Arkadian Warriors an overall rating of C. Review by Russell Frushtick.
