Posted on May 14, 2008, Chris XBLA Wednesday 5/14: Assault Heroes 2
I enjoyed the original Assault Heroes on Xbox Live Arcade as much as one could without actually buying the game. I was just somewhat fatigued with dual stick shooters at the time, and wanted a break from anything not named Geometry Wars. I almost bought it when it was named an Arcade Hit (and thusly having its price cut in half), but I’m not glad I didn’t, because Assault Heroes 2 is here and looks a whole lot better.
The above trailer gives you a look at the weaponry you’ll be employing in the game, and while it’s clear that none of them are going to win Sierra any originality awards, they do look fun. (Particularly that ice cannon.)
800 Microsoft Points, or $10, is the asking price for the game and it’s now available on the Marketplace.
