A quality classic game with tons of lasting value! I recommend it!
Overall Score: 4/5
Excellent gameplay and lasting value make this a must buy!
I was truly impressed with this game. It takes skill, talent, logic, and quick thinking to play it! And the variation in Lode Runner is excellent. Levels are all quite different and have unique challenges to them. Some levels only have ladders for example, which totally changes the gameplay. The controls work really well despite the seemingly weird setup.
The visuals are classic and nothing impressive, but I still find they look good and work well. The music doesn’t seem to get repetitive, but it does only have one song total… overall the presentation is average but it doesn’t bring the game down at all!
Lasting Value: 5/5
I wish all games were like this when it comes to lasting value… the game has 150 levels in it! They’re pretty challenging, and I would estimate at least 14 hours of lasting value from all this. Then you can also play the Time Attack mode through all the levels again if you want, or compete in the leaderboard with your Xbox Live friends.
