Joust - Xbox Live Arcade review

  • Landing multiple kills in a row
  • Mounting tension in the higher levels
  • Sweet revenge on the guy that got you
  • Learning how to fly
  • Dying from one pixel's height difference
  • How much better other people are

Initially, it's you against three other birds. Then they start coming in packs. Then chunks of the level start disappearing. Then the rival buzzard-jockeys start getting smarter and wilier. It's this progressive difficulty that makes Joust just as intense today as it was 20 years ago, and a welcome addition to the Live Arcade for those who fondly recall the Defender days of yore.
