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.
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.
Excerpt: Cute, cuddly, and full of spunk, the Raskull clan will immediately capture your heart--if you can get over the whole being dead thing. Developer Halfbrick has created a unique game that melds action platforming with a heavy emphasis on puzzles, but is the quirky concept worthy of your credits? The wacky campaign follows the misadventures of a band of hooligan pirate rats--pirats, actually--that are out to steal the Raskull's valuable stones.
