Defense Grid was released on Xbox live today. After playing the demo for over an hour and having a blast I decided to check out the reviews for this game.
And what do you know...I think we have another kickass title on xbox live. I thought summer of arcade is over?
Game basically is a strategy game like Halo wars, but even simpler. You have dedicated tower spots and your job is to build towers that kill aliens that slowly march through a set path on the map. Mora aliens you kill, more towers you can build and upgrade. Game is all about placement and timing...
Its only 800 points which is great value...but im out of points right now. Will have to pick some up tomorrow and grab this title.
IGN review below - http://xboxlive.ign.com/articles/102/1020613p1.html
More content than the PC version for half the price? Yes, please.
A very pretty wasteland, with nice lighting effects and impressive machinery.
A rousing orchestral score plus great voice acting from your computer AI.
Addictive gameplay with lots of strategic options. There are plenty tense, action movie-like moments here.
No multiplayer, but plenty to do as a single-player game. Each level has variations with challenge and survival modes.
(out of 10 / not an average)
