Summary: This one slipped under the radar a little bit. One of the first offerings on the 360's fledgling Xbox Live Arcade service, time has proven it to also be one of the best. Marble Blast Ultra bears more than a passing resemblance to SEGA's classic Super Monkey Ball.
Summary: Marble Blast Ultra has 60 levels for you to master and best the time, and it surely does give you a good time. The marble physics are fun and well implemented into the game which throws in its own neat mechanics such as gravity modifiers and powerups, however this does not push the game's longevity.

Summary: Back in elementary school (I'm 17 at the time of writing this), was KING when it came to computer classes. EVERYBODY played it when they had nothing better to do, and they LOVED it. I was so fortunate to be able to find a Windows port of the game and since then held it on my Windows XP to this day.
Summary: Have you ever felt like you wanted to play something, but you wanted to get away from those first-person shooters and highly-active action games? Well fear not, because this is what this game is like. Its for when you want to just chill out and have fun with a game that is challenging and chill.
Summary: Marble Blast Ultra, with a wonderful shader engine, great gameplay mechanics, fun and creative levels, enjoyable multiplayer, and more, packs a punch and can be called one of the best XBL Arcade games out there.
Summary: I don't know who remembers it or not, but Marble Madness is class awesomeness. Move said marble down paths and through obstacles to finish line. I SUCKED at it, but was addicted to it none the less. Marble Blast Ultra is really fun and really challenging. The easy levels are easy, no doubt.

Summary: Marble Blast is a platformer where you will roll and jump your marble through levels of increasing difficulty. The objective is to reach the goal as quickly as possible, and occasionally to collect gems then reach the exit.
Summary: Marble Blast Ultra is a great game for the right audience. The graphics are great, the game play is simple and entertaining, and the achievements make for some lasting enjoyment. It's a very simple game where you roll the marble around the course, and it gets a lot harder than you might think.
