Conclusion: Raskulls is cute, fun and clever, but it won't be for everyone. A more casual player will most likely get a big kick out of racing around bashing bricks, but the more hardcore Xbox owner will long for a more beefy experience. Throughout play, there was always a nagging feeling in the back of our minds that while the concept is spot-on, the execution could have been so much more.
Excerpt: Raskulls is a heady mix of platforming, racing and puzzles and while there’s a fair variety of all three elements, even the racing and puzzle-solving revolve around the game’s platforming core. So yes, this is yet another 2D platformer from an indie developer. Raskulls, however, isn’t just another by-the-numbers platformer. It does bring quite a few fresh ideas to the table and wraps it all up in a very cute package.
Conclusion: Raskulls is a spectacular game. From single player that runs the gamut from devilishly tricky and careful to frantically fast and twitchy, a story that has some of the best gags in recent memory, and great multiplayer, there is very little here that is not to like.
Conclusion: If it were more expensive I might be less effusive in my praise, but for 800 points, I'd say get it, it's a solid game. If you don't have any friends, or at least none who would play it with you, then the single player might still be worth it, but I would think twice. For me the drawbacks were a lack of variety in the multiplayer compared to the single player, and the fairly forgettable soundtrack. Verdict? Buy it.
Summary: " Raskulls " is a lot of fun. It’s hard (but not like Super Meat Boy), and some game modes are pretty weak, but the overall package is really charming. It’s fast, fun, furious, and excellently styled. It’s not the best game you’ll ever play, but for someone looking for something a little bit different on XBLA, then Raskulls is a pretty decent bet.
