    Imaginative graphics and superb sound, a sprawling adventure packed full of neat touches and cool weapons, great humour and an accomplished multiplayer; Glitch embodies what games are really all about - challenge, entertainment and fun.

    It's not hard to fall in love with the gameplay, as it is solid and as instinctive as you can get... nor is it difficult to become enamored with the overall style of the game.
  3. Second only to "Halo," Arms is the best shooter on Xbox. [Dec/Jan 2004, p.80]
  4. 83
    A surprisingly well-made action-shooter with a lot of heart. The game successfully merges a light-hearted storyline with some seriously intense combat, a good measure of strategy and a fun multiplayer mode. Oh, and the weapons in this title are downright awesome.
  5. Less endearing is the proliferation of 'bleeped' language.
  6. The difficulty level is impressively even, remaining challenging enough to hold the attention, but rarely crossing too far into frustration.
  7. 6 / 6 / 6 / 6 - 24 [Vol 805; 28 May 2004]

    One of my favorite games of all time. It's got decent graphics & soundtrack, outstanding gameplay that will make you play this game non-stop. Overall, one of the best games ever made.
    Highly recommended, its a amazing hidden gem for the Xbox/PS2/Gamecube!
