Under Defeat HD: Deluxe Edition Xbox 360 Review

Mygamer
2 September 2014
  • Excerpt: The Dreamcast had a rabid fan base of both players as well as developers. Some dedicated developers continued to produce Dreamcast games years after the system was officially abandoned by Sega. Under Defeat is one such game. Never released outside of Japan, this highly collectable title is now available digitally from Microsoft’s Games on Demand service.

Many great titles never even saw release in North America, but it didn't matter because there was almost always a brand new one to play and another two or three just around the corner.

Review: Deathsmiles (360)

Diehard GameFAN

  • Summary: : Deathsmiles is yet another wonderful shooter for the Xbox 360 that’s packed to the brim with awesome, and it’s sure to please genre fans, though anyone who doesn’t have much interest in the genre isn’t going to find themselves swayed by this. The story is cute, inoffensive and generally carries the game well, and there are multiple modes available to play with enough differences to make them all worth playing a lot.
