Conclusion: Marble Blast Ultra is one of the more entertaining Xbox Live Arcade games it stands alone in its genre. Part puzzle game, part platformer, and part competitive multiplayer action title, Marble Blast Ultra is a good value for players wanting a quick dosage of fun without getting tied up into a marathon gaming session.
Conclusion: The Burnout series has always been good at reinventing the racing wheel. Burnout Revenge shows that EA and Criterion still have what it takes to produce an exciting game from the pretty much the same gameplay that has been on the market for years. True Burnout fans would be silly to pass this one up, and likewise, those that have never played a Burnout game would enjoy this one immensely.
Excerpt: In a genre cluttered with Forza , Need for Speed and Gran Turismo wannabes, the Burnout series has been able to carve out its own little arcade racing niche. While the others have focused on things from racing to upgrades, Burnout has focused on something you typically don't want to do in a racing game, crashing.
Summary: Burnout: Revenge is by far the best of the series. It has really matured into a deep, feature packed, all action racer and you really can't go wrong with a purchase of it - even if you have any of the previous three. There's lots of game modes, lots to unlock and even more time to spend in multiplayer modes so you get more than your money's worth and as it stands this is our racing game of the year.
Excerpt: Many of the same features from Takedown return in Revenge, although there are a number of tweaks to the format to make it stand out from its predecessor. One of the more significant changes made to the format is the protection from non-racing vehicles traveling in your direction. As players of the previous title were quite aware, it could sometimes get hairy to weave in and out of going and oncoming traffic without inevitably running into a car or a truck and dropping...
Conclusion: Where Takedown innovated Revenge expands but that does not mean there is not alot of brand new fun to be had. If you are a Burnout fanatic and have played all the games in the series then you need to play this. If you never played a Burnout game before then Revenge is a great place to jump into a fantastic series. The game does everything right to make it a top notch title.
Conclusion: Niggles? There are honestly only a few. The main issue for me is the lack of replays and a stubbornly unhelpful crash mode camera. I can only presume there's a technical reason why Criterion don’t give us replays, as they would be an utterly brilliant addition to the game, especially if you could save them and show the to your mates, or even share them online. I have had some epic races, and they are lost forever – I would love to watch a replay of them!
Summary: Durch Veränderung der Wetterbedingungen kann man all diesen Features das I-Tüpfelchen aufsetzen. Leider braucht man für ein Multiplayerspiel im Netzwerk eine CD pro Rechner. Diese Tatsache ist im Vergleich zu anderen Spielen mangelhaft. Außerdem negativ zu bewerten ist der im Simulationsmodus zu hoch angesetzte Schwierigkeitsgrad. Die Maschine ist hier erst nach vielen Stunden der Übung zu beherrschen.
