  1. Only hardcore retro addicts should drop the five bucks. [Nov 2007, p.94]
  2. By trying to craft an updated experience for a new generation of gamers, Tempest ends up losing a lot of the luster that originally made it such a hit. Toss in some wonky and unresponsive controls, as well as an additional high-speed mode that only the most hardcore of gamers would be willing to even try and attempt to play, and you end up with an experience that just doesn’t warrant even the budget price of 400 Microsoft Points (or about $5).

    Tempest is functional, and for five bucks you really shouldn’t expect much more.
