So, yeah. Labor Day sale, etc, etc.
I hadn't played Zuma until I heard it was going on sale, at which point I looked it up and played it online. I loved it and bought it for the 360, but I have one MAJOR problem with it.
Every version of Zuma has better controls than the 360 version. Seriously, I liked the cell phone version's tiny excuse for a d-pad better than the 360's stick. I hate how you have to hold it in whatever direction you want to aim, as it makes aiming very tiring and imprecise.
Chieftain was TOTALLY FUCKING RIGHT about the crazy difficult achievements, but I blame the controls for the most part. Sure, clearing a board in 5 seconds is ridiculous no matter how you look at it, but so is digging out the whole play field in Dig Dug. I think the other achievements would have been reasonable if they were done with a mouse....
Well, that's it for my second list of XBLA games that deserve some lovin' (and one that doesn't.......I'm looking at you
, Gauntlet). I don't really expect many people to buy any of these just because I say they're awesome, but maybe if you already own one of them, you'll revisit it and give it the lovin' it deserves.
More than anything, I just felt like making a blog post. :P
NEXT TIME ON DRAGON BALL Z.......I mean, KIT'S AWESOME BLOG: I'm going to tell you why Doom RPG is fucking awesome, since I thought of it while writing this post. CAN YOU SAY "BEST CELLPHONE GAME EVER?"
