Lode Runner (Xbox360)

  • Excerpt: Is it just me or does it feel like there aren’t many decent platform games being released anymore? I am sure the young’uns would argue that the first-person shooter genre is the only one worth playing, but there was actually a time when FPS didn’t exist and platform games were the norm, kids!

  • Conclusion: Overall a lot to do with this game and a lot of replaying down the road. I'd give this game 4 stars (just hard to please) and I know a lot of people are up in arms over this game, but if I saw it on the store shelve for $15 I would not hesitate.

  • Summary: Lode Runner is and always will be a classic. The reboot of the game on Xbox Live Arcade is great version of the title with redone graphics and a tone of modes to keep you coming back for more.

Lode Runner Review

  • Summary: Admittedly when I first downloaded " Lode Runner " I was kind of sceptical about whether re-inventing a 25 year old game would work and especially at a pretty high cost. On first impressions I was thinking that it was going to be somewhat of a let down however once I started playing the minutes flew...

  • Conclusion: But longstanding fans will no doubt lap up what Tozai have achieved with this ageing gem from gaming’s early days – they’ve managed to revitalise and expand Lode Runner while still retaining its traditional gameplay. For retro game addicts, Lode Runner will be worth its weight in gold.

  • Conclusion: A gaming milestone is treated with respect and given an acceptable latter-day spit-shine.
  • Pros: The core puzzle/action combo, which demands a fast-paced puzzle-solving ability that remains rare in gaming.
  • Cons: You have to directly connect with other users in share lobbies to trade user-created levels. The upshot is that the editor is intuitive, and can be used to remake the original classic levels.
