Summary: This game is great. none of my friends who have 360's have this game and when they come over, it's like they are addicted becase they always want to play Marble Blast. If you are into ARCADE games, this game is a must.
Summary: I wondered whethe to spend my first microsoft points on this game and now i've played it for ages i'm glad i did. The 60 levels are divided into 3 groups of 20. the first are easy and require only a few 'second attempts'. the second intermediate set are tougher but except for a few of them they didn't cause me any particular headaches. The third set, which i have just started are distinctly harder and take about 10 to 15 mins to go through each one.
Summary: Best graphics and most in-depth engine of any Xbox Live Arcade game yet. It plays like Monkey Ball with power-ups in place of the cute characters. Lots of variety and tons of boards, and the addition of a decent multiplayer cements it as a must-have Live Arcade download.
