Arkadian Warriors - Xbox Live Arcade review

AKA "Champions of Norrath Lite"

Pros

  • Cartoon-y art style
  • Co-op mode
  • Shiny graphics

Cons

  • 2 player co-op limit
  • Monotonous dungeon crawling
  • Feeling like you've played this before

Dec 10, 2007

Here%26rsquo;s something you don%26rsquo;t see every day: an original game for Xbox Live Arcade. Not that there%26rsquo;s anything wrong with ports of classics or movie spin-offs; but the promise of an all-new experience sparks more of an interest than %26ldquo;Hey, let%26rsquo;s play this game that we%26rsquo;ve already played, like, 10 years ago.%26rdquo; That said, it was sort of a bummer when we loaded up Arkadian Warriors and found ourselves playing Champions of Norrath Lite - that game came out only 3 years ago; we haven't even had a chance to forget it, yet.
