I know its on the news page but what the hell....
This weeks Live Arcade titles are Puzzle Quest at 1200 points and the fantastically free Yaris the Game.
Quick Impressions -
For those of you that haven't this game on one of the other platforms its out for the game is basically a Versus version of Bejeweled massed with D&D. That being said, it is one of the most addicting puzzle games I've ever played. I know personally having the DS version where the AI is brutally cheese, you are still caught saying "Well maybe I kill that f'n rat if I fight him a 10th time."
For Live they have incorporated some nice Live Multiplayer functions, so this is a definite purchase for people that are fans of puzzle games, and even if you own Puzzle Quest on another system it's still cheaper as an arcade game.
My Opinion - Definite Purchase
Let me just say who ever made this game needs to be defecated on (crapped on for those not familiar with that term, as its rarely used but suiting here). This is easily the worst racing game I've ever played...having played the game now I can say that free is actually over charging for this giant flaming turd. Please do yourself a favor and do not punish yourself and play this... Unless you own a PS3, it which case you deserve it.
My Opinion - Start a class action lawsuit to see if the developer can pay us back for the time we wasted trying this pile of ****.
On a final note, as the Yaris game is the second free title on the XBLA I have come to the following conclusion;
PLEASE.... Microsoft, do not give us more free games.... these free titles are comparable to an enjoyable afternoon of chinese water torture....
