Brilliant design; a reward-happy, lighthearted multiplayer fray. One of the finest $15 shooters ever made.

Each soldier type can be played in a number of ways, and discovering new strategies and maximizing your battlefield effectiveness is an engrossing challenge. The clever combat design and well-tuned class complexity make this a great online multiplayer class-and-team-based, third-person tower defense shooter. And if that's a bit wordy for you, then just call Monday Night Combat a very addictive and very entertaining game.

Monday Night Combat's flaws are largely a matter of preference. Some might not like its somewhat generic, Team Fortress 2-alike look, but we don’t mind it. Some players might dismiss it due to the unavoidable presence of bots, although we think that would be a mistake. There are also a number of “what the hell how did I die?” moments where enemy players will insta-kill you with grapple moves out of nowhere, but this can be mitigated by proper situational awareness (and learning how to detect the presence of those annoying invisible Assassins). Overall the frustration factor feels very low for a competitive shooter, yet at the same time it’s very hardcore and skill-based, so it can appeal to all skill levels. Even when we lost matches or got crappy kill/death ratios, we were still having fun, which can’t be said for a lot of shooters out there. And for PC players, you may just have the best version of the game. If you're curious at all, don't pass it up.

Monday Night Combat förtjänar enligt mig en riktigt stark åtta och för den som sätter sig in i det väntar otaliga timmar av genomarbetad, strategisk action. Så sätt igång: ladda ned, välj klass och håll koll på din boll.

Like the other Summer of Arcade titles, Monday Night Combat isn’t cheap at 1200 points. Considering how replayable it is, though, it feels like a bargain. Its flaws are largely a matter of preference. Some might not like its somewhat generic, Team Fortress 2-alike look, but we didn’t mind it. Some players might dismiss it due to the unavoidable presence of bots, although we think that would be a mistake.

Monday Night Combat doesn't offer a large variety of modes or maps, but all of the content being offered is focused and fun. With so many "serious" shooters out there trying to be hardcore, this lively, playful effort is refreshing. It's a great fit for Xbox Live and manages to stand out in a crowded genre.

Original et bien équilibré, Monday Night Combat est un bon défouloir à télécharger contre 1200 Points Microsoft sur le Xbox Live Arcade. On s'y plongera donc avec enthousiasme même si l'on ne peut s'empêcher de penser que l'expérience aurait pu se révéler encore plus sympathique si la réalisation et la durée de vie avaient été un peu plus soignées.

While I don't feel we need anymore online multiplayer shooters these days, there's no denying that class-based shooters are scarce. Couple that with MNC's original take on the genre and it has the potential to be your summer shooter of choice.

Жаль, что из Monday Night Combat не выросла смена Team Fortress 2. Отдельные проблески есть, да калибр явно не тот. Хотя заткнуть Valve за пояс сегодня вполне реально. Игроки, уставшие от микротранзакций и охоты за шапками, с радостью убежали бы под крыло к достойному конкуренту.

Unfortunately, the competitive crossfire mode doesn’t take advantage of this fact and never concentrates the bots enough to make them a real threat, just a diversion from the opposing human players. The cooperative mode suffers from too much scripting of the incoming enemy bots, quickly becoming tiresome. Monday Night Combat features only one game mode inspired by DotA and Demigod, and since the upgrades are few and quickly completed, repetition quickly sets in. Monday Night Combat is best played cooperatively and competitively online, and the game supports up to twelve players fighting it out. The game’s price ($15) is adjusted nicely for how much longevity Monday Night Combat has to offer, which is restricted by the shallow class upgrades, inconsequential creeps, and repetitive single game mode.
