Missile Command - Xbox Live Arcade review

It's rockets vs lightning gun in a reborn arcade classic

Pros

  • The adrenaline rush
  • Discovering actual strategy
  • The new graphics

Cons

  • Dying over and over
  • Only one difficulty
  • Smart bombs

Few videogames these days are as gut-wrenchingly demoralizing, as nerve-shreddingly difficult, or as mind-dominatingly compelling as the 1980 classic Missile Command, which just hit Xbox LIVE Arcade for a mere 400 points. The most violent game of connect-the-dots ever, it puts you in charge of defending a row of six cities from a never-ending, zig-zagging deluge of missiles, smart bombs, and enemy aircraft that rain from the sky like dollar bills at a Vegas strip club.
