Summary: Assault Heroes is a X-Box 360 Arcade Title which drops you (And a buddy if you have one available next to you or online) literally out of a ship into a warzone. You drive a 4 wheeled assault vehicle, and with several weapons and powerups at your disposal, set out to save the world, or something.
Fun! Easy to pick up, fun to play, great quick game.

Summary: I love having arcade games. Some days I am just not interested in playing a full on blockbuster game. I like simple games when I'm in the mood to relax. I also play these games when I am waiting for a friend to finish up to play some co-op or online. This is a game I played the demo for back in the day. My brother had it on his xbox and I gave it a try. It's a blast. It can be best compared to Contra and Smash TV.
Summary: If I take price out of the picture and just look at this game for what it is, it deserves a solid 4 star rating. The game is fun with selectable weapons and lots of stuff to destroy. The graphics are pretty good in HD and the pace of the game is just right. Now if I add the $5 price tag to the game, it deserves 5 Stars. There is plenty of fun to be had in this game for the price of $5.
Conclusion: Probably the best action-arcade title to drop since Geometry Wars, this is worth a look even if you just grab the demo. I got the demo and when I heard it was co-op I bought it and forced a friend to do the same. When they blow up your Jeep(they will) you end up on foot instead of dead, really cool. This setup allows you to get into smaller area's you couldn't reach with a 4x4, and also adds a little more urgency 2 the situation.
