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. The intermediate levels are a definate mix of easy and difficult. The hard levels are pretty insane with a few easy ones mixed in. The Good: -Graphics are simple and smooth.

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. You are timed and each stage has a par time, however you can take as long as you need to complete it. While the game starts out incredibly easy it get very difficult before the end.
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. For five dollars, it's a very well done family-friendly game that does not get old quickly. It's also great that you can download the demo first to see if you like it.
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.
