    I don't expect much from a free game. The plot's very basic, the controls are what you'd expect from a horizontal shoot-em-up, and there are a few features that are interesting (you have a health bar, power-ups have limited use, etc.). However, everything else about this game reminds you that this IS a free game. The backgrounds are uninteresting, the enemies are your basicI don't expect much from a free game.

However, everything else about this game reminds you that this IS a free game. The backgrounds are uninteresting, the enemies are your basic fly-in-formation enemies, music's nothing special and it's fairly short (as to be expected from shooters of this type). For a free game, it's decent, but there are far better shooters on XBLA. Only die-hard shoot-em-up fans should bother with this game. Expand

    Because it was free I was expecting the worst, but after playing it I was shocked by how good it was. It's not great, it won't keep you hooked for a long period of time but it's a fun little shooter. I first played with a friend on multiplayer, and was amazed when I found out that all four ships could link together with each person controlling their gunfire independently.

But the game only has six levels, so the fun is short lived. But for free you can't complain. But I suspect that if they make a part two they will bring more to the table. Expand

    Well it's free so I won't complain. It is a decent game, but I probably would not have bought this if it were not free.

    Clearly, it's priced appropriately. I don't want to be too critical of three interns... but I applaud Microsoft for not trying to make a ton of money off of it. I wish my college internship project had turned out this well...

    Well done little side scrolling shooter. In case you didn't know, that genre of game tends to be very challenging. Either that or terribly boring, but this game is the former. So be warned. If you're not a big player of this type of game, you won't be able to beat the first level, you'll quit, cry yourself to sleep and never play again.

  1. There’s no question that Aegis Wing is fun and challenging, but it would be a hard sell if it wasn’t a giveaway.
  2. Aegis Wing is a pretty decent looking and sounding 2D side-scrolling shooter with a nice twist on co-op multiplayer. The free price tag somewhat makes up for the lack of ship variation and small number of levels.
  3. Yes, it’s free. It’s also repetitive, tedious, unambitious and boring. You know how they say “time is money”? Don’t spend your time on this game.
