I while ago I wrote a preview of Monday Night Combat. In fact, I wrote the first one, out of the whole Internet. Suck on that mortals.
So, we met up with the guys at Uber Entertainment and rocked out to the preview that they had going of Six on Six matches. We (the gaming community) are in for a treat whenever they are able to release the game for XBL. This game is sweet pants. The best way I can describe the game play is you have your 3rd person shooter, but you also have a very simple skill tree that you buy mid-game, then a ton of interactive traps and explosives, and your own army of robots. The goal of the game that Rett and I played was to break the opposing side’s MoneyBall. To do this you have to help your robots along their pre-set trails that they follow to the other side’s MoneyBall and they will pull down it’s shields so you can lower the ball’s health. They will shoot and help you take out the other players robots and the other players themselves while going to their goal of Moneyball death.
The game is fast, fun, and engaging. It’s very easy to drop into and start playing even without knowing the controls very well like Rett or myself. But, in the little glimmer I did get of the game I can see that I will be hooked playing each of the six characters, figuring out tactics, and earning the achievements. I will never be off of my XBL account with this coming out, and I am okay with that.
