    This game is very simple, yet very fun. If your just looking for a quick online/offline game this is the one, easy to pick up yet hard to master. The first half of the games single player is easy the second half more challenging. The online is fast paced and a lot fun. You can play it for 5 minutes or even a couple of hours. Lots of fun, download the demo and try it out.

    Twice the cost of Namco's reruns, three times the fun, and five times the replay value. Heavy Weapon is worth the 800 points for the 4-player co-op Live play alone. It's the perfect stress reliever after a hard day.

    If you like twitch games, Heavy Weapon is an explosively explosively good time. [Feb. 2007, p.75]
  2. The frantic 2D play, the limited movement options and the massed death from above make it a challenge even to twitch gamers. Throw in four-player survival, a boss battle mode and great co-op and it’s a must-buy.
  3. Heavy Weapon's arcade-style shooting is incredibly appealing, especially when you get into the ridiculous action in the multiplayer modes.
