    With its serviceable single-player game and a gem like the new Defend mode, Island Thunder is a tidy little bonus juuuust worth the price.
  2. Yeah, you'll like it, but only if you were hard core about the original, or haven't played the original at all and happen to like this particular game genre.
  3. I like the new modes because each one puts the player on the defensive at some point, and I love being the centre of attention in a multiplayer game and facing overwhelming odds. Yeah, I'm a masochist, sue me.

    I love this game. I got it because it looked really cool and let me tell you, I didn't regret it at all. Also, I thought that because itI love this game. I got it because it looked really cool and let me tell you, I didn't regret it at all. Also, I thought that because it is rated M, it would have lots of gore and guts and everything, but surprisingly, it wasn't bad at all. The only thing they show is a little blood on the ground afterwards and it lasts only like 5, maybe 10 secs. I would definately of given this game a teen rating, because I don't see why it's M, maybe its because of the violence, but even that wasn't horrible. The graphics are awesome and the game overall is just incredible and I would recommend it to everyone!!!!! Full Review »
