  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] Minesweeper has come a long way since the days of the 9-by-9 grid! Minesweeper Flags includes the classic grid game, but if you're looking for real action, check out Flags where you must secure the mines instead of avoiding them! Minesweeper Flags also delivers exciting multiplayer action for up to four players, deep stats to track your rankings, ratings and true skill score, fun new achievements, and an all-new action packed single-player campaign mode. This is Minesweeper Xbox 360 style. Supercharged Flags Mode: Play against the computer or compete with up to three other players locally or online in a race to find and flag the bombs first. Engaging Campaign Mode: Travel the seven continents and strategically use extra lives to sweep up mines on a variety of field sizes and shapes, unlocking lush new environments to enhance Classic or Flags mode.

  1. But the improvements to the classic design are substantial, and they really make the gameplay more accessible.
  2. While everyone who owns a Windows PC has a version of Minesweeper to play, this version is actually better with the two new gameplay modes, improved graphics and some very fun multiplayer make this a worthwhile game to own.
  3. For four hundred points, Minesweeper is a nice little and fun to play diversion that will take a while to get through as will earning all the relatively tricky achievements. At this price it is difficult to go wrong, even if it does come free with Windows.
  4. Now some may ask why I am so down on a game that I give a C+. It is not the game that I am so down on. It is the publisher for trying to charge for something that has been free for years.

    While functional and fun in short bursts, unless you want to play Minesweeper on your TV screen there’s little reason you should purchase this Arcade game.

    Why would I want to download a $5 console installment when I can open six different versions for free on my computer and play them all as I type this? Minesweeper Flags works as advertised, so if you’re dying for the Minesweeper experience, you won’t be disappointed. But there's nothing new here that's really worth the download, multiplayer included.
  7. A worthless exercise in over-designed pap, based on a game you already own. [Apr 2009, p.104]

    I honestly can not believe I paid for this.

    Do yourself a favor. Don't bother buying this. The free version that comes with with every
    version of Windows is exactly the same. And if you don't have that, there are plenty of shareware versions.

    The visuals are nice, but pretty much pointless and unremarkable. Not enough to justify a pricetag.

    Overall:
    Completely needless.
