    Hats off to Chair/Epic for this one. This game – while not original – is near perfect. It takes Splinter Cell, Metal Gear, Impossible Mission and Bionic Command:Rearmed and combines them perfectly. There have been some fine XBLA titles (Braid, Geo Wars 2 etc) but this is the best yet. This is a better game than most full priced retail games. Don’t complain about the 1200 points – this really is money well spent. Splosion man is a great game, Trials HD is a great game. This is the pick of the bunch. MSFT saved the best to last and congrats to all for this brilliant game.

    What little bit of the very long trial I played was very fun. But, I can’t decide if it’s uncanny similarity to Super Metroid is a reason to buy or a reason to not buy it. Mind you, I LOVED Super Metroid, but this game goes past ‘resemblance’ and right straight to ‘copy’.

    Are the controls customizable? I only ask because it’s SO similar that I keep finding myself trying to play it like Super Metroid (which really says something considering I haven’t played that in years).

    It really it worth it. The only customizable controls are assigning upgrades (hookshot, missiles, etc) to the D-pad.
