Kevin Alexander: "The original Monday Night Combat was a breakout Xbox Live Arcade hit that shouldn’t have been one. In the crowded online multiplayer scene dominated by the likes of the Call of Duty, Halo and Gears of War franchises, a little independent title shouldn’t be terribly successful – but time has proven it to be one of Xbox Live Arcade’s biggest games. The blending of elements from Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike, tower defense, and a whole lot of Defense of the Ancients hit the right chord for many people, myself included.
After eventually making its way to Steam the game opened up to a whole different audience who also responded to the game’s fun action and charm. Now Uber Entertainment has brought forth Super Monday Night Combat, a freemium follow-up, changing around the formula a bit. But don’t worry – your favorite parts are still in fine form."
