- Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] Monday Night Combat is a class-based, third-person shooter ... and the most popular lethal sport of the future! It blends intense combat, finishing moves, and gameshow-like challenges and rewards to produce an action experience unlike any other. Why fight for "honor" or "duty" when you can fight for the real American dream - cash, fame and endorsements?… Collapse
A fun mix of Team Fortress 2 and Defense of the Ancients. The seemingly odd mix works well, and along with the low price and the ease of accessibility, Monday Night Combat is a unique offering on Xbox Live Arcade: a shooter that doesn't loudly claim to be the new challenger to Modern Warfare 2's throne, bur rather is content with being its own thing. If Uber Entertainment keeps on adding content and fine tuning the balancing, this should keep fans of team based shooters happy for a long while.
This is a very enjoyable and welcome addition to the second "Summer of Arcade". But as with most XBLA games, it has its drawbacks.
-Blitz mode is a blast to play with friends.
-The different classes are each very fun to play.
-Crossfire mode is unique and an incredibly fun game mode to play.
-Customizable classes add even more depth to the game.
-There is a great emphasis on strategy.
-The controls are excellent.
-Shooting "Bullseye, the Monday Night Combat Mascot" never gets old.
-With only one map and settings that aren't customizable, Blitz can become stale.
-Framerate often drops.
-The games humour sort of falls flat.
-The only things to unlock as you obtain money are Custom Classes and Titles.
-Only a few maps in Crossfire mode.
-Really only two game modes.
In the end, is it worth a purchase? Personally, I say yes. It has its faults, but it is undeniably fun, and even more-so when played with friends. The best advice I can give is to play the 30 minute timed demo, and try to play both Blitz and Crossfire once, and as many classes as possible, and that should be enough to decide if this is for you.… Expand
7Class-based frag-fest meets DotA-like lane-pushing and creep waves in a game unlike any other. Unlike lots of shooters, the obsessive fraggers won't dominate unless they learn to work as part of a team, and even the best strategies will fall short without some firepower to back them up. MNC is a surprisingly deep game with great polish and a quirky sense of humor.… Expand
This game has potential, but however fails to deliver and ultimately is a waste of 1200 points. I was very keen to see how MNC would copy and add to the Team Fortress gameplay, the result was a generic and somewhat confusing mess that is fun for ten minutes only! I brought this on impulse, so don't make the same mistake and give it a miss!… Expand
