Smash TV - Xbox Live Arcade review

Blast everything that moves for game-show glory


  • Relentless pace never lets up
  • Mowing down crowds is a rush
  • Just as gory as ever


  • Graphics still look like 1990
  • Free continues make it too easy
  • Sequined jackass host all up in your face

Prepare to die. A lot. Smash TV is back on the air, and if you hope to claim this game show's cash and prizes, you%26rsquo;ll have to grind your way through exhausting, seemingly endless swarms of robots, monsters and bald men with clubs. And that%26rsquo;s just in the first room.

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
