The Next Level
Minor quibbles aside, Mutant Storm is as close to perfect an arcade game as I've seen. The game is engaging, controls are intuitive, and it's very easy on the eyes. The challenge level ramps up perfectly from level to level, and new varieties of enemy appear at just the right pace. The best part is that the game always feels fair. There's a way out of any situation, if only the player can react fast enough to make it work and is smart enough to see it. Mutant Storm is a brilliant game, a justification of the Xbox Live Arcade concept, and a worthwhile addition to any gamer's library.
If you want one reason to visit the Xbox Live Arcade, this is most definitely it. You can see why Microsoft has just signed the game up for the 360's forthcoming Live Arcade service.
