Arkadian Warriors - Xbox Live Arcade review

AKA "Champions of Norrath Lite"


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


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

Dec 10, 2007

Here’s something you don’t see every day: an original game for Xbox Live Arcade. Not that there’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 “Hey, let’s play this game that we’ve already played, like, 10 years ago.” 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.

More Info

DescriptionA cute little dungeon crawling adventure. If you liked Champions of Norrath, you'll probably like this - assuming you can bring yourself to shell out $10 for a game you've already played.
