    The visuals alone make this game worth the purchase! All of the top down shooters on XBLA have been so generic lately and sadly I bought them all :( It's great to finally get a game with some character - which PowerUp Forever has in bucket loads. It plays like a dream, it has so much depth you just constantly keep finding new enemies and getting better weapons... but I guessThe visuals alone make this game worth the purchase!

  1. It might not pick up an award for its revolutionary graphics or voice acting, but it should put a smile on your face at times and give you a teeth-gritting grimace at others.

    PowerUp Forever would have been a much different game with some semblance of multiplayer, instead all we get is flimsy leaderboard support for all three of the difficulty levels.
  3. Despite distinctive visuals and intuitive controls, PowerUp Forever still grows old before its time.
