Root Beer Tapper - Xbox Live Arcade review

Belly up to the bar for some arcade-style, near-beer alcoholism


  • Faithful recreation of the arcade classic
  • Online multiplayer; when it works
  • Simple
  • pick-up-and-play mechanics


  • Repetitive gameplay
  • Lack of arcade "beer tap" controller
  • Online multiplayer; when it doesn't work

Root Beer Tapper - the latest classic to hit Xbox Live Arcade - is one of the most deviously simple games you’ll ever play. It seems so one-dimensional at first, but could very well end up an obsession.
