Sadly I don't have an XB1, but this is one of my favorite Xbox games(second behind Panzer Dragoon Orta, naturally), so take my word: this is a gem.

Download it on PC! Or at least "purchase" but don't install it so that MS knows there's demand

I own an original Xbox but never played this game surprisingly. Excited to jump in for free with Windows 10, it was a nice surprise.

Legit one of my favorite games of all time. Bummed the sequel got canned, but glad more people will get to play this one.

Still waiting on that, hasn't gone up on the store yet.

Edit:

When it does go up you can get it from either the W10 Store or Microsoftstore.com

Wasn't it just going to be a remake? I'm sad too, but I don't even know if the original creator was going to be involved.

I've always wanted to play this one when I was playing on Xbox back then, but never had to play it.
I've just finished my 2nd run on P5, so I'm free to go on another game, I guess it'll be this one. :)

I actually think reimagining used so maybe that's scarier.

This honestly is the best outcome. The textures still look pretty great for a 13yo game. It has microtransactions, but the unlocks were designed in an era long before that stuff so you definitely do not need to pay a single cent.

Very good. Can't argue with the price. :P


The story is trippy, and the gameplay is basically Matrix in an arena. You can drop overpasses onto people.

It's an arena action game where your skills come from a deck of abilities you build ahead of time. There are almost 400 skills IIRC. You got projectiles (bombs, lasers, cannons, etc.) shields (frontal, 360 degrees, parries, etc.), movement skills (flying, dashing, warping, etc.), melee (swords, punches, etc.) and tons of other uncategorized abilities (swap your opponent's directional inputs, steal their skills from their spawn point, rain meteors on them, etc.)

You have 5 "colors" like in Magic the Gathering with mana as well. You balance the weaker, cheaper, more narrow skills against the more expensive, big skills. Made up example: a 1 mana shield might be a limited use frontal shield, the 3 mana version is infinite use, the 5 mana version is 360 around you. Tons of variation and customization. Maps, which are destructable, also have different styes from a cramped indoor space that promotes close combat to a long stretch of highway that is better suited from long range sniping.

It won't work on 8 (unless UWP somehow works and they figure out a way to drop the Windows 10 requirement like Halo Vista->XP), but you can "buy" it off the store to show support until you get Windows 10 and/or a X-box 720.

I kept looking for a price(was going to buy anyway), only to see that it's free. That is awesome!

I guess they'll see how many players it has and micro-transaction sales before they see if they want to turn this into a franchise? Hopefully people play it and get hooked.

Purchase it on the Xbox web portal so that at least it's associated with your account. You'll eventually have to move to Win10 or later anyways.

Absolutely crazy that this is going to be free. Hopefully it doesn't mean the game has been rebalanced in a negative way. Definitely going to try this out tomorrow.
