    Despite some issues regarding a somewhat unstable framerate, Monday Night Combat provides you with an endlessly entertaining class-based shooter/ tower defense game.

    Colin MacCabe is a British writer and film producer. He is distinguished professor of English and film at the University of Pittsburgh and professor of English and humanities at Birkbeck, University of London, and a visiting professor at the University of Exeter.
    MacCabe was educated at St Benedict's School and the University of Cambridge where he began his academic career. He came to
    public prominence in 1981 when he was denied tenure, apparently in consequence of his position at the centre of a much publicised dispute within the faculty of English concerning the teaching of structuralism.[1]
    He has published widely on film and literature with particular emphasis on James Joyce, Jean-Luc Godard and topics in the history and theory of language. He has served as chairman of the London Consortium, which he co-founded with Mark Cousins, Paul Hirst, and Richard Humphreys.

    There's a lot of shooters to choose from on XBL. Some of them are even really good. But if you're looking for a pure experience where squad tactics can take you all the way to the gold... if you're looking for diverse class game play that asks a little more from you than the ability to pull the trigger... if you can do some shooting without some built in motivation to do so other than good old fashioned team combat... Monday Night Combat is a franchise to get in on the ground floor with. Easily addictive and plenty to keep you playing until the morning, MW2 fire and forgetters NEED NOT APPLY. Strategy gets you to the winner's circle. Try it and see. Expand

    Developed by Uber Entertainment, Monday Night Combat is the real standout of this year's Summer of Arcade. Whether you think of it as Uber's love letter to Valve, or a statement of how multiplayer can be done right at an arcade price point, Monday Night Combat is pure fun.

    The game is a highly entertaining unique blend of tower defense games and class-based shooters. Crossfire mode is a blast. Fast, furious fun with lots of strategy. Blitz seems a little easy but is fun with friends. All in all, an excellent addition to your game library.

    A fantastic addition to the class based third person shooter genre. Where as the COD games serve up the same recipe year on year with just reworked graphics and even more over the top Michael Bay inspired plots, MNC delivers more innovation than all of the Call of Duty games combined.

    It manages to introduce boss battles to online multiplayer with the clever addition of the Jackbot. A
    mechanic usually only found in single player games is seamlessly worked into this arena based shooter. It also fuses the Tower Defense genre into the game with and again this usually separate and distinct type of game works so well as the basis of Monday Night Combat' Crossfire mode. Where as most online shooters pit player against player, MDC changes the gameplay so the players (pros) must assist their teams of bots to infiltrate the other team's base and lower the shields of the opponent's money ball while building and upgrading towers to defend their own moneyballs.

    Another new gameplay mechanic not found anywhere else is the way weapon upgrades are managed. Each bot of pro kill wins cash. Cash can be spent upgrading weapons and equipments at any time during the game. Each new game resets each class's weapons so everyone starts on an equal fitting. Knowing what and when to upgrade brings the tactics usually found in RTS games into play and again, this has been seamlessly interwoven to the core shooter gameplay.

    Overall one of the top 3 games to be found on XBLA today. Ignore your Fifa and COD loving friends, Wake up sheeple, this is cutting edge video game design.

    First of this game is 15.00 a steel when you think about it... actually not relay this game isnt pixel junk monsters but its no Black Ops either. This game wins buy combining tower defense and 3rd person shooters but fails by only having 2 modes and only one where you playing against someone instead of bots. The first mode Blitz is where there are 2 Bot spawning points and 1 money ball you and your teammates will work together to fend of all of these bots. The bots getter bigger stronger faster and come in bigger waves throughout each round. On the 10th round though the bots get sheilds and such. you dont have to do this alone though you can buy turrents with the money you earn. You can also use this money upgrade your character. The other mode which theres to teams the hotshots and the icemen. you copete to kill each others money ball. I enjoy this mode better than Blitz but wish they had a mode more focused on killing eachother rather than prtectiong your bots so that they can go terrorize the other teams money ball. Variety would of been nice but ill take this game perfectly for what it is. Expand

    Amazing. Funny. Addictive. Incredible. Interesting. Monday Night Combat is all this words, have incredible graphics, great gameplay, and the better is the multiplayer is amazing. I feel that I play again Star Wars Battlefront, and this sensation is amazing.

    From only playing the trial version so far I can say that this is a game that if people commit to and want to play online, could potentially be a great game to play with everyone a couple times a week. I have noticed most of the few reviews mention a drop in the frame-rate which might be fixable via an Xbox Live Update, if so this game seems to be a great buy for anyone interested in a comical, yet serious multiplayer arcade 3rd person shooter. This could be the best of it's kind seeing as though it's one of the only of it's kind. Solid game, solid buy. Collapse

    There are few maps and modes but, after all, Monday Night Combat is surely a speedy, funny and adrenalinic multiplayer game.

    Monday Night Combat is a title to have if you love FPS in third person dedicated to multiplayer. There are some defects, such as the paucity of maps, but this is a game that knows how to enjoy immensely.
  3. With only two modes, MNC is light on options. However, what's there is entertaining, addictive, and provides replayability in the form of earning cash to purchase custom classes.
