Posted on August 29, 2007, Chris XBLA Wednesday 8/29: Really Long Name Edition
The Xbox Live Arcade is now home to two more games with today’s release of Streets of Rage 2 (400 Microsoft Points) and the heavily-anticipated but too-lengthily-named Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix. (Really, is that all so necessary? Puzzle Fighter HD works for me.) We had only been expecting Puzzle Fighter (800 Microsoft Points) this week, but it seems Streets of Rage 2 slipped in at the last minute – there’s still no page up for the game on Xbox.com. If you’ve never played Streets of Rage before and want to catch up on the story, you can download Streets of Rage Remix for PC here.
Puzzle Fighter has always been of my personal favorite puzzle games, and by just taking a look at the feature list, you can tell this is the best iteration yet. Online play, enhanced graphics, a new mode, leaderboards and achievements make this a must-buy for puzzle game fans.
