Heavy Weapon flings itself into the position as one of the top Live Arcade releases to date. While it may not have the longevity of something like Zuma or Hexic, you’ll still come back to Heavy Weapon from time to time when you have that urge to jump in and blow things up. PopCap’s latest has that in spades.
Heavy Weapon doesn’t do a great deal wrong. It may have taken a long time to reach PS3 from it’s PC origins, but it’s definitely one of the better shooters on PSN, sitting alongside the likes of Everyday Shooter and even Super Stardust HD. It’s not cerebral and it’s not subtle, but it’s bloody good fun, and exactly the sort of quick blast one might expect from downloadable games.
Adaptação de webgame, "Heavy Weapon" oferece mais do que aparenta. Faz jus ao lema usado nos banners da Xbox Live: baixe diversão. Tem cara de casual, mas exige reflexos de jogo grande. O apelo está no bom equilíbrio entre gráficos e ação. Se o modo para um jogador não oferece muito além de algumas horas de diversão, compartilhar o combate com outros amigos aumenta muito a vida útil do jogo. Na dúvida da compra, a versão demo oferece as três primeiras fases. Elas são fáceis comparadas ao todo da missão, mas suficientes para cativar soldados indecisos.
Perhaps it was the extreme lack of originality in the recent Xbox Live Arcade releases, but I had a blast with Heavy Weapon. The single player campaign lasts a solid 4 to 6 hours, the achievements are challenging without being overly tough and the co-op multiplayer will keep you coming back for more. I can easily recommend Heavy Weapon at a cost of 800 marketplace points.
Heavy Weapon mag dan wederom de standaard besturing hebben die we zo goed kennen van de Xbox Live Arcade topper Geomtery Wars, op het gebied van fun scoort deze game zeer hoog. In je eentje of met drie anderen, Heavy Weapon weet eigenlijk altijd wel te vermaken. Absoluut één van de betere Arcade-games die Microsoft voor ons momenteel beschikbaar heeft.
So, as much as you might not be thrilled about the prospect of a 2D scrolling tank shooter, Heavy Weapon is far better than it initially appears to be. As an example of how to bring the past up to date, it's one of the best examples on Live to date and definitely one to check out in the shivering January wasteland.
The single-player game is fun and challenging, and the multiplayer modes give you a reason to keep playing. In short, Heavy Weapon is a good value at 800 points, and fans of arcade-style action should get a lot out of it.

Heavy Metal is a fun little game that gets a bit too repetitive for its own good. It's a well conceived shooter with some nice presentation and it does a fine job organizing the achievements. Opting for flat terrain and repetitive scrolling backgrounds perhaps wasn't the greatest decision in light of the limited enemy variety presented towards the end of the game where everything starts to feel redundant. Still, in short spurts Heavy Weapon can be good fun and is a nice diversion from more thought intensive games.

Hra se může zdát jednoduchá a primitivní díky ovládání pouze jednoho tanku, ale vězte, že na nějaký čas si s Heavy Weapon Deluxe vystačíte a vyřádíte se.
As you play, you'll earn power-ups that will enhance your tank's firing abilities by adding homing missiles, lasers, and so on. One of the pickups is a screen-clearing nuke that comes complete with a nice-looking mushroom cloud. The game's main mode is a campaign-based mode that has you upgrading your tank along the way, but once you've completed a few of these missions, you can go into survival mode for an additional challenge. Your only control is over where your tank is aiming, though the tank will move back and forth as you aim, giving you some control over dodging, though not as much as you'd like. Separating the moving and firing controls would have added to the game's complexity, and the increasing control options would have been a nice addition.
With trophy support and some decent game modes, Heavy Weapon is entertaining and fun. If you can get past the dated presentation, Gamestyle has no doubt that you'll become drawn into the addictive arcade action. The multiplayer side is a welcome addition, and the modes available are enjoyable. The appeal is limited, however, and there are other shooters on the Playstation Network that warrant your attention before you should set your sights on this one.
