Summary: At eight hundred Microsoft points " Madballs Babo Invasion " is well worth a look, and defiantly a better use of you points than TMHT (or TMNT). I would like to be able to recommend it more highly but my experience has been far from ideal.
Excerpt: You don't need to know what Madballs are (a gross-out kid's toy from the previous century) to enjoy doing battle with them in this fast-paced shooter. Madballs in Babo: Invasion may be an obscure title, but the game's roll-and-gun action is universally accessible. A variety of weapons and special powers give multiplayer combat some depth, and the fact that you have to unlock these weapons and powers means you'll reap steady rewards for continued play.
Pros: Engaging array of weapons and special attacks, Fast, fun online play, Steady stream of unlockables, Sizable campaign features co-op play
Cons: Visual issues plague different systems to different degrees, Annoying character quips
Excerpt: Although one could be forgiven in thinking that this game is a clone of Marble Madness, however in actual fact, Madballs is a third-person shooter that does rely on physics (rolling) and a healthy dose of weaponry. Boasting both single-player and multiplayer options, Madballs in Babo: Invasion is an interesting twist on the classic third-person shooter.
Excerpt: Madballs in... BABO: Invasion isn't the deepest game, but it shouldn't be. Games like this are great because of their simplicity, not in spite of it. Gameplay revolves (get it?) around your chosen circular hero rolling from place to place and causing as much havoc as possible.
Excerpt: First, a little history. When PlayBrains approached Microsoft to get their title, Babo: Invasion , published, it was a sequel to the freeware shooter BaboViolent 2 . Microsoft liked the game, but had one question: could the characters be Madballs? PlayBrains looked at their game and thought, "Why not?", and got together with American Greetings to blend together their shooter with the forgotten franchise.
Excerpt: Every now and again I am pleasantly surprised by unassuming titles that come to life and draw you into their world. Whilst reflecting on the creativity and effort that goes into making these moments possible, I feel a great sense of responsibility reviewing games given the blood, sweat and tears that the developers put into their art.
