Mr. ESC steps onto the scene of a metropolitan disaster dressed in black, with fedora screwed on tight, red scarf flapping in the wind. Only he can save the citizens trapped in various buildings around the city. Fire, water, and electrical shorts won't stop him from finding the whining victims trapped in each building and then leading them to the exit. This task is rarely easy and will require you to use your noggin in ways unusual for an Xbox Live Arcade title. Released on PSP well over a year ago, Taito's Exit makes its way to Xbox Live Arcade. The perfect type of game to port, Exit is an inventive title with a slick style and brain-scratching puzzles. Many will find the unique set-up refreshing, but it's a few old-school game mechanics that keep Exit from reaching the upper echelon of XBLA titles.
Overall score: 7.6/10
