Week in Arcade: Monday Night Combat

The next to last entry in this years Summer of Arcade, another $15 title.

Monday Night Combat

Comparisons to Valve’s Team Fortress are not really fair, beyond the basic class system. There is far more going on in this unique mixture of tower defense and third person shooter. All of two game modes are present, one a simple defense with one team against varied bots, and other that mixes the bots with humans. Tightly wound controls and a fun presentation create a lively environment, although games tend to run to a stand still until overtime when the big guns are brought out. Every player feels like they have a purpose, and creating your own turrets gives them the feeling of being your own. How cute. Worth it if you have friends to join in.
