  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] The future of reality TV is Smash TV! It's the game show that asks: "How far would you go for a brand-new toaster?" You could win a VCR ... or you might lose your life! This new version of the original arcade game features online multiplayer co-op and versus modes. Listen to the audience cheer as you risk life and limb in room after carnage-filled room. Can you make it to the legendary Pleasure Dome? Cash and fabulous prizes could be yours - but only if you survive. And with the likes of Mr. Shrapnel, Mutoid Man, and Scarface out to get you, it's not likely. Good luck ... you're going to need it!

  1. A cult classic and worth the low price. This is a fun game to play and even better with friends. Strangely this twisted shooter never really gets boring and is good for several rounds. To quote the MC "I'd Buy That For A Dollar."
  2. An arcade classic. [Issue#23, p.96]
  3. This blood-drenched blast-fest is still one of the most intense games ever made, and twitch gamers looking for a serious challenge won't be disappointed.
  4. Smash TV provides a dose of retro-gaming fun that improves upon the original with some entertaining online co-op support.
  5. A great game that is extremely hardcore, and for only five bucks it is just cheap enough for newcomers try.
  6. While the game isn’t exactly deep, it’s a fun diversion for a chunk of time, especially if you have a friend to play with, in person or on Xbox Live. As far as the old classic games go, this is better than most offerings.
  7. If you’re looking for a quick trip down memory lane or just a seriously intense shooter with a really funny backdrop them Smash TV might be worth your while. On the other hand you might want to just save that $5 for tax on Oblivion or some other game you’re likely to get way more than a couple hours worth of gameplay out of.
