True achievements
30 August 2009
  • Conclusion: The tower types are well balanced and maps give you just enough variation. More people should try this game. Attaining the 12 achievements are somewhat of a challenge but manageable for most players. This game is easily one of the best Xbox Live Arcade games to date.
