  1. This game's a great mix of action and problem-solving.
  2. I love this game. It's one of those games that when you just don't want to play anything else, or your tired of the racing and sports games, this is something you can turn to that is fun yet challenging. And playing online is a blast.
  3. At 800 Microsoft points (about $10 USD), Marble Blast Ultra is a solid game with some refreshing gameplay ideas for those who have grown weary from this years recycled arcade titles.
  4. It has plenty of replay value in terms of getting higher scores on the leaderboards and acquiring achievements, plus the multiplayer adds some additional game time.
  5. The real pay-off of Marble Blast Ultra is in the swear-inspiring multiplayer.
  6. Be careful though, rolling the marble is so addictive that 30 minutes will go by before you know it!
  7. This is a very nice action puzzle game but after completing the 60 levels, there would not be a lot for me to return to except to play on LIVE, which in turn is quite hard to do as you can’t find many human opponents what with so many other good 360 titles available.

    Marble Blast Ultra, with a wonderful shader engine, great gameplay mechanics, fun and creative levels, enjoyable multiplayer, and more, packs a punch and can be called one of the best XBL Arcade games out there. Sixty levels of different difficulties to choose from and a great multiplayer make this an experience that will last for months. Though, it's not going to last TOO long for you. I've played all of this game through and have more than 50 hours in the multiplayer, and this is definitely a great game. A lot of memories were put into my head from playing this when I was younger, and you can have the same fun too for just $10. Expand
