ARS: We play video games to have fun and escape for a few hours into a more appealing virtual world. That may appear an overly simplistic explanation when you look at the variety of experiences that are offered through the medium, but it remains true for most gamers. Monday Night Combat is a game created by industry veterans and is focused on providing a multiplayer experience that captures a sense of fun and absurdity, but doesn't sacrifice the depth modern multiplayer gamers need.
Monday Night Combat was a critically acclaimed game on the Xbox Live Arcade, and both looks and feels better on the PC with a new $15 release on Steam. There are plenty of reasons this game is so well regarded, and the low price tag and ability to jump in and start shooting are only two of them.
