    Keep your hands off Xotic. These 800 MSP should rather be invested elsewhere.

    The fact that every cheap death forces you to start a mission over from scratch is just the final nail in Xotic's suffocating coffin. [July 2011, p.81]

    A dissapointing game, based on a strange universe, without a decent story and lackluster gameplay.

    I have had to concede it a good score in terms of value. Although it has much of the polish of a $100+ title, Xotic can be yours for only 800 Microsoft Points. I'm genuinely impressed by the production values for a game in this league. I just don't want to play it again.

    Xotic is terrible in most respects and unremarkable or flat-out boring in all others.

    To use an easy analogy crutch, the Xotic aesthetic is what I imagine would come from Terry Gilliam's seed and Tim Burton's egg. The worlds have a distinct, twisted, colorful look. Each space is so littered with warped objects and fluorescent lights, though, that it becomes difficult to separate enemies, point items, and multiplier and damage pickups from the environment.
