RipTen Review: Awesomenauts (XBLA)

Michael Futter writes: “What the heck is a MOBA?” Ask that question to any League of Legends, Defense of the Ancients or Heroes of Newerth player and you might just get smacked upside the head. Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas, or MOBAs (also called Action Real Time Strategy games), are an offshoot of traditional RTS titles.

The genre goes back as far as a mod for the original Starcraft called Aeon of Strife, and has grown in popularity by leaps and bounds. The purpose is typically to control one character (rather than whole armies), upgrade that hero with earned resources and, with the assistance of weak, plentiful drones, work your way through the opposing team’s defenses and destroy their base.

The story is too old to be commented.

Yet another awesome XBLA title. Gotta love XBLA!

It hasn't sold very well on xbla. If you have a ps3 buy it for that as it was given out free for ps+ users so it has a much bigger user base to play online.

The XBLA has really ramped up their output of great titles lately. This one has been on my radar for a while, so I think I'll give it a go.

Love this game! I sure hope Ronimo keeps up the momentum by releasing new heroes and maps.
