    There’s enough to God Mode that it can stand apart from similar shooters in the same vein, and there’s certainly not a lot of games like it available on Xbox Live Arcade. But with online play being a huge focus, and with most players not going the route of system link for co-op, the online side needs a bit more attention before I could justify recommending God Mode to anyone. Provided something can be done to fix these problems, it’s worth the $10 asking price. But until then, buy at your own risk.

    It is rather hard to recommend God Mode. Even though it has competent mechanics, flat out there isn’t enough content to see you playing for more than a couple of hours, especially when there are full retail games out there with similar game modes bundled in as well as with full campaigns and full multiplayer offerings for the same, or lower, price.

    Well animated, quirky, and full of attack wave action, God Mode is good fun. What it isn't, however, is a well-structured campaign. The mainWell animated, quirky, and full of attack wave action, God Mode is good fun. What it isn't, however, is a well-structured campaign. The main attribute of the game online multiplayer is the tether that keeps it from grading better and will ultimately determine if the game has "legs" or not. The personalization options are somewhat limited, and the weapon tree will take a while to rank up on, but the action is there in spades, with a host of bizarre and horrible-looking creatures to shoot up and down. Controls are generally tight, although there is frustrating delay when trying to run (the run button is the same as the dive/evade one, only held down) and attempting to "scope" is problematic as the scoping doesn't withdraw when you release the bumper. Both of these can be worked around with practice, but will result in many early deaths until you master them. For 800 MSP, however, this is a delightful way to waste a few hours, but it is doubtful that you will return to the game again and again as with the best multiplayer efforts. Full Review »

If I could make some suggestions, smaller arenas, more melee weapons like swords and chainsaws, more sound effects, and call it Army of Darkness. Has great assets to make an AoD game out of.

It looks great compared to other arcade titles and is a blast to play through with a buddy. I did experience a few glitches...
    *game freezes
    *a character can become null. He'll still be in game but wont be able to be damaged, be able to deal damage, or pick up items. Upon game end it freezes and you don't get to retain any of the gold or experience you picked up.

    it really is a solid fun experience however. I would definitely suggest downloading it and playing it with some friends. I put in about 5 hours last night with my roomie and will be resuming when I get home. I would like to see more levels and customization options but like i mentioned..the game is only $10.
    Some of the guns are a blast to use.

    I would like to see some hub improvements. Like having icons on the bottom part of the screen showing what test of faith are currently active.
    also increasing the mag size on a gun but not increasing the total amount of ammo you can retain is NOT cool.

    The game is a blast though and it does have its funny moments..funny like "ha..thats funny" not like "omg castle crashers..I'm gonna pee"
