This is a fun shooter, reminds me of playing Ikari Warriors on NES in a lot of ways. Good times playing co-op.

The style is almost like a top-down Halo game. The graphics are decent, not anywhere near Halo but they don't have to be.

I would say this is probably one of best $5 games on XBLA

Co-op vehicular shmup. It's a good time, but can get hard on some of the achievements. Good luck!

A great, classic throwback a la Mass Destruction

As dual-stick shooters go, this one is hard to beat. If you ever had a chance to play "Mass Destruction" for the PS1 or Saturn, you'll see where this game's roots are. Particularly when you're using the vehicle's flamethrower to roast enemy infantry ;)
Long story short, there's a whole lot of good shootin' to be had here; lots of really great bosses, super interesting stages, colorful and inventive enemies, power ups and overall a very professionally put together game. Now that the price is only $5? Done! (I got mine for $10 and have no complaints whatsoever!)

One of the better 'orginal' titles on XBLA

Assault Heroes is one of those classic, top-down, dual-stick shooters that isn't......well, it's not a classic at all really. It just FEELS like an old, arcade classic. Assault Heroes is actually a very fun and intense top-down, dual-stick shooter that is definately worth a download. It's $10 and it's WAY too short, but I feel it still worth the time.

In Assault Heroes you control a vehicle that can shoot in several different directions. You can also change to three different types of weapons, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. The game is only a few levels long, but those levels are quite large and they are a lot of fun.

The game doesn't really do anything to change the way we play videogames or take anything into a new direction. And it basically rips off several classic games along the way, but it's still a blast to play. There is just something about this genre of game, when it's done correctly of course. The game looks & sounds very nice, especially in HD. The controls are also pretty good and stick to the standard dual-stick scheme.

If you are looking for a fun shooter to kill some time with on your Xbox 360, I would highly recommend Assault Heroes. Although it's very short, there are some very cool achievements here that could really extend the playtime for you if you beat it quite quickly. The real question is.......is it worth $10? Well I think it is and excuse me while I go back to blowing some stuff up.

Assault Heros

This is a great game to play Co-Op with a friend sitting on the couch beside you. Playing alone can get boring fast, but for only $5 it is easily worth the purchase.

An average action game.

In Assault Heroes you either run or drive around a landscape destroying everything in your path, there isnt a whole lot of depth here as you point the right joystick in whichever direction you wish to shoot and just continue doing so untill the stage ends and you move onto the next one. The graphics are decent, and sound is alright, and the controls are simple. Just nothing totally unique about the title, and with a sequal out, not to much reason to purchase.

Graphics: 7/10 - The art style is average but the landscapes are decently detailed.
Sound: 7/10 - Average music and sound effects
Controls: 9/10 - Easy enough to move around and shoot.
Replay Value: 6/10 - Not alot of reasons to go back.

Good graphics + Good gameplay = Good Game

I didn't expect much from this top-view shooter, but much to my surprise alone or with a buddy its a solid challenge that quickly passes time. On that note that game is longer then I had suspected for a arcade game. Now that this game is only 400 points, there's no reason not to get it!

Nice graphics, good gameplay, but not worth the 8

Yep, I paid 800 MS points for this game, just a month before the price was reduced :-(

The game isn't bad though.
It looks great, the bullets of the machine gun and cannon, flames of the flamethrower, and little explosions and rockets look great. Enemies also look very cool with lots of variety, from little soldiers, to the giant sea dwelling crab robot boss.
Co-op is fun, and the game has enough levels to keep you entertained for a while (17 or 18 I think). And to change up the pace, some levels are exclusively on water, and on foot, besides just being on land in your vehicle. There a secret bonus areas, and some fun, giant boss battles. In addition to your upgradeable flamethrower, cannon, and machine gun, you also get grenades and a screen clearing attack that comes standard with any shooter game. Another cool feature is that after your vehicle is destroyed, you get one last chance to stay alive as a little on foot soldier, who shoots tiny bullets.
The game is just satisfying as you watch your enemies fall around you. If you like shooters, and are looking for a cool diversion, this is definitely it. With so much diversity in one XBLA game, everyone is bound to have a favorite moment.

Not bad - especially for $5.

It's exactly what you'd imagine it to be - an arcade-style top-down shooter. It's reminiscent of the old-school shooters, but still somewhat lacking. The co-op, however, brings the score up a bit. It's a blast to play with 2 people. And for $5, you really can't go wrong.

A Decent Little $5 Shooter

This game has average written all over it. I found the game to be adequate, but a little on the boring side, and it is also a little short. But the gameplay is decent and there aren't too many games like this on XBLA, so it could be worth your $5.

Solid Co-op

Game was a lot of fun co-op with my son, but as a single person game it was lacking. I've never been a fan of the scrollling-type shooter however, and it did at least capture my attention for a little while.

Lots of fun in co-op

I had a lot of fun playing this with a friend. It is simple, but fun shooter. The levels get progressively more challenging, but not to the point it is frustrating.
