If you played Rush 'n Attack on the Nintendo Entertainment System, you'll find a much different experience in the Xbox Live Arcade version. The arcade version lacked a couple of levels and had a different setup than the NES version, so bear that in mind if you're considering purchasing this game. If you're feeling nostalgic for this simple side-scrolling action game, you'll likely get bored after about five minutes. None of the additions or enhancements bring anything new or exciting to the game, and although it's relatively inexpensive, you're better off spending your points on other, better Xbox Live Arcade games.
I can't recommend that anyone pick up this game, not even fans of the game in arcades. If you want the thrill of playing Rush 'N Attack, go to your local arcade and see if they have a machine. The dismay of not finding a Rush 'N Attack machine will be less than the dismay you'd feel if you had purchased this game for $5. I'm going to lay it out for you here, Konami. While Time Pilot was nice, the constant supply of boring, buggy, rushed ports is wearing very, very thin. No more cheap emulation, no more parading out your old, tired games to try and turn a quick buck. Let the fans vote on what they want you to release, and release the top 3 and sit on the rest of your back catalog. I'm betting over half the people who bought this game feel cheated, and I count myself among that crowd.
