Review: Boulder Dash-XL (Microsoft Xbox LIVE Arcade)

Diehard GameFAN
13 October 2011
  • Summary: Boulder Dash-XL may be light on presentation, but its gameplay is just as captivating as it was in the “Ëœ80s. It’s hard to ignore the reliance on themes borrowed from other classic games such as Dig Dug and Pac-Man , but everything comes together to provide a frantic and challenging experience.

  • Summary: Upon the initial release of " Boulder Dash XL " I was 50/50 about whether the game would still prove as enjoyable as it was all those years ago and whether it would offer anything new to captivate the new generation of gamers.

  • Conclusion: And, unlike something like, say, Ms Splosion Man, the difficulty level isn't so great as to put off the more casual observer, even though you may well die quite a bit on the harder levels.
