Crystal Quest - Xbox Live Arcade review

  • One jazzy techno tune
  • Easy to pick up
  • Classic arcade design
  • One jazzy techno tune
  • Hard to put down
  • Enemies that explode into shrapnel

Based on a classic Apple II/Macintosh game (yes, once upon a time, Macs played games), Crystal Quest serves up a bare-bones gaming experience, but still manages to dress up for its 360 debut. A kaleidoscope of trippy, tracer-leaving characters parade across the screen, dazzling you into that state of catatonic play where concerns outside the game itself become completely irrelevant. A cool downbeat techno track lulls you into a trance that just might cause you to forget that you can always choose your own music. Crystal Quest may not feel particularly original, but it's magnetic and hypnotic - and that's worth our Microsoft Points.
