    Definitely going to give this a go. It looks like it could be loads of fun.

    Demo is 1.82 gigs, I’ll pass for now, and check it out if it ever goes on sale.

      The demo is the game, just without it all being unlocked.

    Got a code drop last night. It’s not bad. Not amazing, but not bad. Grimdark as heck, which appeals to me at least. Looks the business too for an Arcade game.

    But yes this game is not for everyone. And of course for 1200 and a demo clocking in at nearly 2 gig many people are gonna overlook it. But 1200 seems a fair price for now.

    This one is bad and the Black deep is meh/bland… The dotw (nba jam) is ok i guess, but not my cup of tea… Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet has been reduce to 1200Mp>800Mp, now that is a good promotion…

    IMO is the worst of the Arcade NEXT titles, I’ll just wait 2 more weeks for minecraft, maybe I’ll give a try to Fable Heroes.

    • http://twitter.com/Navarin Jimmy Rustler

       Well you haven’t even tried the other two yet. Fable Heroes could suck, it IS a Fable game…

      You’re better off really, I wish it wasn’t available her now, 1200 points well an truly wasted tbh.

    I had a small minute hope this might be surprisingly fun, but that was shattered pretty quickly after playing the demo. 1200 points? Not even worth 400. Maybe 80 :/

      Same here. I was interested, but it turned out like this -_-

    XBLA has become a dumping ground for large 2GB titles that lack the quality for a full retail release.   It is sad.  I miss the days when there was a 500MB limit on game size and so the experiences were forced to be quite different from retail.  Thank god for FEZ.

    i enjoyed the demo thought it was fun but i enjoy these types of games wish the demo would let me see a little more not sure about paying 15 bucks for it might wait till dotw and thanks microsoft for adding even more adds to xboxlive in youtube and other apps. Guess playstation plus is sound more appealing at least they offer free games from time to time instead of the same ol DoTW rehashed over and over.

    This game is really not for everyone. If you like your hack and slash games give it a try. i played the demo and thought the combat was a little lacking but bought the full game none the less.

    1200 points is a little steep (id gladly of paid 800) Once into the game you get Rune magic which you can level up to do more devastating attacks.
    Personally i like the game – although the enemys popping up is very predictable.

    Way overpriced.
