This was mentioned awhile ago by Sierra, but in case you weren’t aware Assault Heroes 2 is this week’s sole Xbox Live Arcade game. The first game was simple fun and the sequel looks like it’s more of the same. Some of the changes let players steal tanks from enemies and shoot creatures with the new freeze cannon. The more fun with a friend quest eventually confronts players with a giant mechanical snake. A mecha snake is surely worth 800 Microsoft Points ($10) right?
The shmup side of me believes so.
