  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] Inheriting the style of the renowned arcade title, QIX++ allows you to take up the fight again in a variety of different ways. With customized weapon improvements, a technique-based scoring system, and events triggered by opening Item Containers, the evolution of the series has truly come a long way. The object of the game is to defeat the QIX using the marker. When the total area cut off by the marker reaches a percentage equal to the Threshold, your final attack begins and you have cleared the stage. [Taito] Expand

  1. Qix++ is fun, but may not be worth the investment to a lot of folks unless they’re willing to splurge for the DLC.
  2. Ultimately though, for those who enjoy the niche quality of retro titles, there is something enjoyable and genuinely fun here for you.
  3. A bit of a disappointment, then, and for easily avoidable reasons. [Issue#55, p.105]

    The arcade original is a fun game, but this version forgets some of the things that made it cool and doesn't give us an opportunity to spend any quality time with its new features. Ten bucks for twenty minutes of gameplay? Kick this one to the curb.
  5. Qix++ is a poor remake of a classic arcade game.
  6. A bland and uninspired rip-off, steer clear of this one.
  7. While Qix++ offers some new twists on an old classic it falls short of what the standard is for a remake. The game play is fun, but it is hard to ignore the generic inspired graphics, monotonous techno, and lack of content. The game costs 800 Microsoft points, so unless you enjoy feeling slighted your points are better off spent elsewhere.

    It's fun, easy to learn, and highly-addictive...I love this game! I guess the only downside is the cost.. If you're willing to spend a few coin on the DLC it adds a bit more variety to the gameplay. But, if you're going with the basic version alone you may feel well..ripped off. Expand
