Xbox Live Arcade: Aegis Wing review
Since doing two other Xbox Live Arcade reviews, I figured I should do more. This review is for the game known as Aegis Wing. It is also a 2D sidescroller type game. This game was actually free, and you can download it to your xbox 360 for free if you have a silver or gold xbox live account by going here. Once there click the link that says "Full game." From there you will log into your xbox live associated email and you will be able to send the game to your xbox 360. The game itself is simple. You are controlling a space ship that must avoid getting shot to death while fighting your way through the levels. There are a total of 4 power ups that you can use. One shoots a laser beam that destroys anything in its path. Another creates what seems to be an EMP field where the ships stop functioning and you can shoot them down. The next is a multiple-shot weapon that shoots enemy seeking missles. The last of the power ups is just a shield. With the shield you can deflect enemy fire back to them. I have not beaten this game yet, but it is loads of fun. You get 5 lives per level. If you use them up then you must start over. So far I have only managed to get 2 achievements. I can expect to get the rest later. My final score for this game is:
It would be nice to have better graphics and a few more options, but the game is definitely good for the price range (again, it's free!). You have nothing to lose, but you have achievement points to gain. Download it now if you get the chance.
