  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] Mutant Storm Reloaded features the official training grounds for those who wish to master Blastikkidoo - the Art of Blasting. Just as in martial arts, you begin with a white belt and earn higher belts as you progress. As you move to higher belts, the difficulty increases, which in turn hones your skill. Your goal is simple: Blast through 89 levels inhabited by an array of nasty beasties and live to brag about it. Survive, and you could earn the elusive black belt. Play single player, or two-player cooperative on the same console in either Adventure Mode or Tally Mode. Post your scores to the Xbox Live leaderboards. Experience all-new graphics and sound effects. [] Expand

    It's fast, it's furious, it will absorb you utterly and it costs a mere 800 gamer points, so you're onto a real winner with this one!
  2. Flawless control, sleep-stealing gameplay ... there's just no reason to skip out on this perfect, mutated storm.
  3. Although you’d have to be a real top-down blaster fan to own Geometry Wars and Mutant Storm Reloaded, it would be hard to pick between the two. Mutant Storm Reloaded is possible a bit more well-rounded, although it’s hard to argue with Geometry Wars’ TRON-like setting.
  4. Trying to unlock the various difficulties is extremely challenging and can cause frustration for those prone to getting worked up over games. The loading is a little annoying at times but overall doesn’t hamper a stylish yet psychedelic experience that is full of shooting and lots more shooting.

    Pom Pom has done an exceptional job at taking a simple concept and making it both beautiful to view and a pleasure to listen to. The graphics are fluid, organic, and distinct.
  6. It's not the most immediately compelling arcade-style shooter in the world, but this top-down shooter has enough additional difficulty settings to make it entertaining, especially if you're into online score tracking.
  7. Not only does it feature addictively simple pick up and play gameplay, but the stage-oriented design allows players to either go through a few stages or a few playthroughs at time.

    This is the game Geometry Wars Evolved and Crystal Quest wish they could be. 89 levels, 2 different gameplay modes (Adventure and Tally), 1-player and 2-player co-op modes, numerous powerups, many difficulty levels, incredible boss battles, outstanding electronic soundtrack... what more could you want? Just go get it now! Expand

    Tally mode. Tally mode. This game is great I've lost hours to tally mode. More slow burning than geometry wars but also a damn sight more addictive. Expand
