    A surprisingly fun and addictive game with a fun range of characters and maps to choose from.

    Would be better if there was more content to unlock, but overall an addicting game with a cool ranges of fighters.

    Really fun, but I think there could be a little more content.

    Exactly what was expected, by far the best XBLA exclusive release. It's a total rip-off of Smash Bros for the Nintendo consoles, but that's not a bad thing at all. Great weapon variety and is continuing to hold my interest!

    This is the best xbox arcade game out there. It is just like super smash bros! Its controls are the only thing that is bad about the game. If you like samsh bros get this game!

    The product is better than most other offerings in the Arcade areas, and most of you won’t regret spending money on this. However, with it being a fully focused multiplayer game, the single player feels rushed and unloved, offering you nothing to go back to.
  2. With its focus on weapon grabbing over weapon firing, Small Arms' shallow gameplay falls flat.

    The action is hectic, the online play is a blast, and the visuals are good enough that you won't forget you're playing on a powerful console.
