Pros: + Risk meets Scrabble, + Colorful art with amusing characters, + Menu xylophone
Conclusion: Quarrel is one of the more unique Xbox Live titles of late, mixing anagram solving and turn based strategy that is a neat little combination. Though if you are not much of a wordsmith then prepare to be challenged.
Conclusion: As good as it is, there's little chance of Quarrel's hybrid gameplay converting anyone without a taste for cerebral action, but hardly the point. A great game is a great game regardless of genre and Quarrel, bar a few quibbles over whether words really exist ('SAVOURLY'? 'PHREAKED'? Really?
Excerpt: I had heard that Kali was good. Heard she was better than Malik and better than Rex, and both Malik and Rex were good too. I'd scoped her out, read the profile, boggled at the Word IQ of 195. Even the name was a giveaway. Kali. I'd seen Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
Conclusion: Für das Preisleistungsverhältnis ist Quarrel wirklich ein gut gelungenes Spiel, es werden bloß 400 Microsoftpunkte benötigt um sich das Spiel runterzuladen. Was mich jedoch wirklich gestört hat war, dass das Spiel komplett auf Englisch ist.
