    It's not a game you can jump in and play. There's far more going on than in a basic third-person shooter, so don't take it on a surface level. There's immense strategy here. The only real complaint I have are the vehicle controls and some odd balancing (point blank bazooka doesn't kill a human, but can take out a tank).

    I'm interested about the single player too.

    From what I hear (and as I said before, this is coming from someone with months of hands on experience), the single player is probably the game's weak point. That isn't to say that it's bad - it's just not the multiplayer.

    It also saddened me to see so many folks online speaking lowly of the game, writing it off as just another shooter without even trying to understand the strategies and intricacies. How shallow is that? We are definitely in an age where quality is largely determined by how instantly the player is gratified. Sheesh.

    Dying bears a greater punishment in The Outfit than it does in games similar to it. The respawn wait is longer, and the points lost is larger (especially if you're killed by another human player). It could definitely be better in this regard, but it could be a lot worse, too.

    There are some major similarities to Bejeweled, but also there are some major differences too.

    For example on Jewel Quest you have to create a chain on every single square of the board until the squares are all gold, and also the game board changes shape after the first few levels, making you think several steps ahead to chain jewels in tough to reach spaces.

    Also the time limit is much more unforgiving, actually taking time away for an incorrect move.

    It's a shame JQ doesnt have as many game modes as B2 does... still, I bought it, and am working my way through slowly but surely

    Well get this. I am (for once) not going to buy a new XBLA game! Mainly because I prefer Bejeweled 2, I already spent the money on Bejeweled 2, and I do need to show some restraint against the Live Arcade.

    Take that Microsoft!

    I'm anxiously anticipating word on how the BA demo is. I've been looking forward to it for quite some time now.

    The targeting system in BA is incredible. Easily the best I've ever used in a flight title.

    The training mission is pretty weak. Don't judge it based on that. The voice work is pretty aggravating, but once the attacks begin in the second level, you don't care.

    Astropop also showed up in the Live Arcade today.


    Now, to wait for Battlefield 2 tomorrow!

    Anyone play astropop? I played it on my cellphone (5 min demo), since I can't get on live yet. It plays kinda like a magical drop, how is it on the 360?

    Any game that kind of even closely resembles Arkanoid is good in my book. :P

    Astropop reminds me more of Klax than it does Arkanoid.

    Good game, gets bloody hard later on and the achievements will be quite a challenge
