Week in Arcade: Snoopy Flying Ace

Only a single game this week, mostly because its awesomeness would instantly render any other game moot.

Snoopy Flying Ace

Still depressed about losing the ability to play Crimson Skies online due to the original Xbox Live going down? Leave it to Snoopy to help you out. This fantastic arcade flight title is everything you would hope it to be, with smooth, consistent flight mechanics, satisfying weapons, great music, and freakin’ Snoopy. Online play is loaded with basic deathmatch modes, and newcomers like Rugby. The game is a visual stunner, and a decent length single player campaign (and co-op missions) make this a “duh” purchase. This should have been saved for the Summer of Arcade promo. It deserves the exposure.
