Some of my fondest gaming memories have come from Total Carnage, Robotron: 2084, and other similar multidirectional shooters. As a result, I’ve got fairly high hopes for the upcoming downloadable game, Rocketmen: Axis of Evil (800 Microsoft Points), which is headed to Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network next Wednesday and Thursday respectively.
Like any good arena shooter, Rocketmen will feature co-op for up to 4 players (both on and offline). You’ll also be able to customize your character’s appearance, weapons, and abilities, with multiple races and classes to choose from.
Last, but certainly not least, the visual style of Rocketmen is looking freakin’ sweet from where I’m standing (er, sitting). Graphics may not be the deciding factor in whether or not you purchase this game, but it certainly doesn’t hurt.
Anyone else interested?
