Heavy Weapons: Atomic Tank Review (Xbox Live Arcade )



800 Microsoft points Unleashes adrenaline-soaked side-scrolling shoot-'em-up arcade action, with a blast of retro eighties videogame chic. Scoring 79% from 9 reviews on Metacritic.com

Reviews Summary:
If you like twitch games, Heavy Weapon is an explosively explosively good time
Long lasting Mission mode, an unlockable Boss Blitz mode, satisfying Achievement Points, and smooth and addictive Live play, Heavy Weapon adds its name to the list of must-own Arcade titles.
Gameplay feels wonderful, even new in parts, the visuals bring a new flair to a classic style game
fun, action packed experience
Gets a bit too repetitive for its own good, a challenge even to twitch gamers
Brief, brainless fun without looking and feeling like a crusty old arcade game. It's easily one of the 360's best downloadable games yet.

I'll put the kettle on while you lot get sozzled... I've clambered back on the wagon again...

BTW who is Seamus or will this become clear???

gnome said...

I think it's quie clear really. It's a tequila ignoring chap! How nice...

The Elderly said...

an admiral if sobering event Father Krishna, when your feeling comfortable, give us a shout and i'll belt you in.

Seamus is a leprechaun, he arrived quite suddenly, offered to help me out with the blog, moved in, and is drinking me out of house and home, not alone does he shun alcoholic spirits of any kind but the poor chap has the most fetid wind problem. Still he's a lovable chap really.

Gnome your understanding is remarkable, ill pass on your support to Seamus when he wake up, he had quite the rough night last night.....

gnome said...

Better pass him those pills toothen, and the e/cyber/orange-juice too...

The Elderly said...

...shamrock juice... i beleive he calls it and a more vile, fetid concoction i have never witnessed....

im fearful the pills may tip him over the edge, he can't seem to settle... maybe it's having been pursued for most of his life poor fella.

i'll pass on you kind regards..

gnome said...

That's nice to know. I mean you passing my regards... Not his smashed and battered alcohol-ridden psyche

The Elderly said...

lol

indeed sure theres no problem, a clear dividing line between sanity and leprechaunality

Seamus the Leprechaun said...

..not that clear.

hhahhaaaa haaa hah

(loud laughter echoes through the room....)
