Missile Command Launches onto XBLA


Today's Xbox Live Arcade release is Missile Command, the retro crap Atari shooter where you fire at ... oncoming missiles. With updated graphics, a new Throttle Monkey gameplay mode, and multiplayer over Xbox Live or locally, this nostalgic classic costs 400 Microsoft Points. Unfortunately, according to the read out at Major's blog, this game is currently unavailable in Japan or Korea, but everyone else is free to check out the trial and see if this oldschool goodness is up their alley.

I played this game SO much on my Atari 2600 when I was young, and I blame it for the anxiety problems I have today..

I tried this game, and I didn't like it. Why am I shooting lightning bolts at comets?

the old version is def way better than the "enhanced" version, the old one you have a huge blow up radius that it gets the missile that you missed. the old one is was better.

I dowloaded this the minute it became available.
This is a horriable game even for 400 points. #3 Token pretty much sumed it up. I'm glad, very glad this game wasnt free. Because I cant pass up a free thing.

The controls suck in this version, and I was kinda looking forward to it too.

Yeah lighting bit is way too distracting. Maybe missle launchers ala slypheed would have worked?

They should have released Bomberman LIVE. Missiles and Bombs, so good together.
