Reminiscent of Pengo games from the early eighties, Polar Panic does a good job at bringing back an arcade feel of gameplay that can be picked up and played for short bursts, provides shallow short based enjoyment and has an emphasis on hitting high scores be it alone or with friends.
The levels are inventive, Puzzle and Survival modes round out the package, and the orchestral score is quite nice. It doesn't have a lot of personality, though, and some wonky controls and collision detection reveal a lack of polish. But Polar Panic should get younger gamers through the cold winter weeks ahead.
The Survival and Puzzle modes are plenty of fun and provide two very different experiences. Offering your mind and reflexes equal workouts, these two options save Polar Panic from being an entirely flawed experience, and one that should give fans of the genre at least a weekend’s worth of fun for 800 Microsoft Points (or about $10).
