Combat (Xbox Live Game Room)

The classic Atari game is back in the Xbox Live Game Room.  Battle a friend with tanks, biplanes and jet fighters.

This game has no story so I wasn’t sure how to introduce it.  I only got this game because I have a book called The Art of Video Games and this one was the very first on the list.  I love what they can do with video games now but that doesn’t mean I want to forget the old.  All you do in this game is move a vehicle around while trying to shoot the one your friend is controlling.  Unfortunately, you can’t battle against an AI but, if you don’t know anyone that likes video games, you can always shoot a standing still tank.  Trust me, it’s much more fun with two people.

This game is simplistic yet addictive.  I give it 7 out of 10; a true classic.
