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.
