X-Men Arcade Review

Growing up during the arcade renaissance of the 1990s, I have a lot of memories of the old beat-em-up genre.

One, it will be the first game published under the Xbox Live Productions label, Microsoft's new first-party partnership initiative for XBL Arcade content. Two, "South Park" will be a strategy game, according to Xbox.com. That doesn't tell us much, except that worries of a sequel to Acclaim's not-so-acclaimed "South Park" first-person-shooter can probably be put to rest. -- Onex Gaming ...strategy? Well, when you look at the other genres the license has been used for, why not? On the optimistic side, The Simpsons eventually got some games more decent than "Bart vs. the Space Mutants," which was also an Acclaim title, so maybe there's some hope. Read More
