Splosion Man -- omg this game is brilliant!!

I decided to pick this game up since it is on sale this week for 400pts on the marketplace. OMG this game is brilliant. The single player is amazing, but the multiplayer is where this game really shines. My wife very rarely ever plays a video game. We both played the multiplayer for 3 hours last night. I thought we would just be going through the levels in the single player. I was blown away to find out it has completely new levels designed for the multiplayer. The strategy and teamwork to pass these levels are awesome. I also was unlocking avatar rewards and gamer pics quite a bit. Splosion man is a very funny character as well. "Get to the Choppa!!"

Buy this game...at 400 pts it is an absolute steal.


p.s. Trials HD is on sale for 560 pts this week as well -- terrific game

I've been playing it this week as well, but on single player. And while I was singing it's praises for the first 7 levels or so, it's starting to enter that realm of total platforming frustration.

I enjoyed the demo when this came out. Time to pull the trigger, I think.

Chuck and Groucho I have had this for sometime and haven't played in awhile so once you guys are done with single player and wanna do MP I wouldn't mind going back and trying again.

I eventually hit a wall and can't figure out how to get past a little tiny section... So it got shelved.

Bought and played this with some friends on Monday. One of them had us skip a level and we ended up with the pink tutus. Otherwise it's great fun!

I loved it until the second boss battle when I hit the wall on it. Never could pass that or any of the section 3 levels. Great game though and the donuts song rules.

No, my Lakers won -- I'm in a great mood. That was me being a touch sarcastic, nothing more. You should see my posts when I'm grumpy!

I'm in too. MP is fucking fun with 4 people, but it gets stupid hard when you have to work together to get everyone up to the next platform. If you want to progress, stick with 2 max.

Just bought it. The sad thing is I don't even have a 360 right now. Hope to get the slim today.

It's an XBLA game called 'Splosion Man. I'm surprised you haven't heard of it. It's really neato and a lot of us think it's pretty keen. There's another thread about it too. You should join us!

I will have to disagree on this at least for the average gamer. Even Trials HD is easier than Splosion Man.
However, for people good at the Mega Man type stuff it probably is easy.
