Wednesday is New Game On Xbox Live Arcade Day, and, in recent weeks, one of very few days when I actually turn my 360 on. I downloaded the trial version of today’s “gem” – Geon, and a few game demos and gave them a go.
It’s Pac-Man with two mazes, one on the back of the other, two players, and goal each. And some power-ups. I played for half an hour, and reached a stalemate position three times (neither I or the CPU player would budge, or the other would win). This shouldn’t be allowed to happen. I won’t be buying the full game as the actual concept of the game if crap anyway.
Spider-Man: Friend or Foe
Or, TMNT in different clothes and a two-player mode. It wasn’t amazing, and the plot seems rubbish (Spider-Man teams up with assorted baddies to take on some other baddies in Tokyo – WHAT), but if I see it for a tenner I might give it a go.
It’s Sega Rally! Only new and shiny and you can actually feel the ruts in the road! But I’m crap and it’s very slidey and not really my sort of thing. I can see that people who are into rally games will probably love it though. It certainly played better than Dirt, even if it is a lot more arcadey.
