Assault Heroes IGN Review

Worth every Microsoft Point, this slick shooter is the new king of XBLA.

From the review: Visually the game looks good for a throw-back, top-down shooter. Trees catch fire and you can knock down telephone poles. Each enemy is distinct from the others in appearance, which helps when you train you crosshairs on Al-Queda suicide warriors that cause a huge explosion when capped. The bosses are huge and provide their own pattern-based challenges.

The sound features some nice effects and a decent score. The best that can be said is that the sound never gets annoying, which is more than can be said for a lot of XBLA titles.

Featuring a host of achievements and co-op play, Assault Heroes is a blast. The story is obviously a tongue-in-cheek play on a number of classic games and good for a laugh. With three difficulty levels -- and believe me, this game can be very tough at some points -- Assault Heroes is a challenge and one of the best XBLA titles to date."

Oooh Hell yeah! I'm glad I have more than 2500 points available to use. I'm getting this. I'm also glad they went with the 800 points. Because I'm pretty sure they will sell more this way. Instead of the 1200. If the last arcade game was this cheap I would have picked it up aswell.

I just bought it and played it for a while. It's easily one of the best games on XBLA so far.

Assault Heroes Review-TheGamersHub

TGH Writes:

"Top down shooters are making a comeback recently. Heck any arcade like shooter is getting publicity now. Where does this put Assault Heroes? The PSN re-release of the XBLA hit came out 2 years after the fact. So does the time spent in development help the game or is it simply just a port of a good game."

Extreme Gamer: Assault Heroes Review

Extreme Gamer writes: ""Digital download services on each of the three consoles seem to be quite a home for old-school games such as Mega Man and Castlevania, and they've especially been a haven for sci-fi style shooters as well. With this, Konami has brought back Assault Heroes for the PlayStation Network.

The game was actually released on the Xbox Live Arcade a few years ago, and the only difference is that the PSN version is five bucks more expensive at $9.99. But if you've never experienced it, $9.99 is still a good price (but you might want to stick to the one on the 360)."
