Speedball 2 images

Speedball 2 images

Microsoft just unveiled five new images of Speedball 2 on Xbox live arcade, probably renders of the redesigned version. It won't stop me from playing the real version, with its cool blue ice tones.

It's still just as good and addictive as it ever was. The upgrade in graphics works well, but I miss the old style injury machines and the cries of "ice cream!". You can switch to classic mode at any time though and relive those glory moments. God bless the Bitmap Brothers :)

God bless the original version.

(Edit : Yeah, I'm a retro jerk)

Looks pretty good for an XBLA game.

Oh I can't wait to get to injure people in this, I hope they haven't changed the mechanics.

    Tiz Gears 4 is a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, which is great if you loved Gears 3. @alimokrane: I'm partial to the Embar & Overkill. (27 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @Phaethon360: I agree on the enemy variety, definataly but I simply love the little tricks and bits they added here and there. Best weapon has to be the DropShot. Ball of fun! (30 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz But with regards to variety, do you mean enemy variety? Because I agree. That is spot on. Gears 3 had so many different Locust & Lambent classes which kept Horde rounds fresh, Gears 4 does not. (50 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz PhaeKO outta nowhere. Rod said he wanted to do it right before doing it different and 343 were the blueprint for this which is why a lot of the Gears community still remains intact. (52 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 That and the variety just isn't there. So many different enemy and weapon types in Gears 2, which was the high point of the series for me. Gears 3 wasn't bad but it was on the downswing for me. (57 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 I really dislike Gears 4. Horde 3.0 was a disappointment, and the mechanics haven't changed much since Gears 1. After playing the remake so soon it just felt like more of the same. (58 minutes ago)
