    Lumines Live:

    Single Player -- 8.5/10, great single player puzzle game if you're into these types of games
    Multi Player - 5/10, nobody plays on xbox live unless you find a fellow OTer or play locally

    Shadow Complex:

    Single Player -- 9/10, similar to Metroid... well worth the money
    Multi PLayer -- N/A

    [​IMG]


    Zuma:

    Single Player -- 8/10, surprisingly addicting
    Multi Player -- N/A

    [​IMG]


    Geometry Wars 2:

    Single Player -- 9/10
    Multi Player -- 10/10, even though you can only do local multiplayer, it's still too much fun to give anything less than 10.

    Trials HD:

    Single Player -- 8/10, pretty addicting but didn't feel it was worth the $15
    Multi Player -- N/A

    Castle Crashers:

    Single Player -- 7/10
    Multi Player -- 9/10

    Ninja Turtles (classic 1989 arcade):

    [​IMG]

    Single Player - 2/10, yes a classic but only fun for about 5-10 minutes (or the amount of time you'd spend pumping quarters into the machine back in the day).
    Multi Player - 4/10, besides being a novelty item, it'll still get boring pretty quickly. If you're looking for a hack em up that's worth playing for an extended period of time, just buy Castle Crashers.

    single player - 8/10 I only had basic so I didnt have a huge array of songs. I only really liked challenge mode, and I didnt like the other modes. It's kind of addicting for a while but I wish it had more songs.
    multiplayer - N/A

    Braid - 9.5/10 - This is a 2d platformer/puzzle game. While the game is somewhat short, its worth every penny, I couldn't put it down until I beat it. All the levels are insanely creative, I love the soundtrack and artwork as well.

    Marble Blast Ultra - 8.5/10 - I've always liked jump/surf maps in quake and half-life, and as the first marble blast game I've played, I was surprised at the similar sort of gameplay. It's very fun if you're into this sort of thing. One thing I noticed is that Easy is... painfully easy. Intermediate is... easy. Then Advanced is teeth grindingly difficult. This game has eaten away good chunks of my time. Multiplayer is surprisingly kind of fun too.

    I didn't realize it until now, but 3 of the 4 games I rated 10/10 are the three XBLA titles for which I have 100% achievements. And I'll have 100% on the fourth (Monkey Island) soon. I'm one achievement away from 100% in each of my two 9/10 games (Peggle and The Maw).

    I found the same. Flew through the first load of tracks and then failed time and time again :rofl:

    I got my points cheap so it was $15, was probably worth about what I paid though :dunno: Although I wouldn't go as far as spend extra on the DLC for it.

    I bought Bomberman which i've played a bit. It's pretty good, well it's Bomberman really :dunno:

    Would love a Texas Hold em game but not enough to pay for it. Especially as I know even if I did my friends wouldn't :o

    I thought it was awesome that some were moderately difficult. That being said i took it as a challenge to get 0 faults on as many as possible. I think i only have >10 courses left with faults :o

    this

    i got the dlc for it aswell because i couldn't find anything else worth spending my remaining points on.

    some of the medium ones are too fucking hard. i watch replays of other people and they're just ridiculous, so many direction changes to remember without thinking about the fucking dynamic scenery.

    skill games are more fun than the actual levels imo

    I couldn't get into Splosion Man, it got way too hard...but it wasn't as fun as Trials HD so I never played it to get better. Still don't care about gong back to it.

    Although it's probably fun with friends.
