looking at spending a few of my Live points and just wondering what arcade games are available for cheap that are actually good and fun to play.

Let me know what you recommend guys + the points if you know them.

TMNT 1989 Arcade and Assault Heroes are 400pts each, and pretty great

Worms too, if you have people to play with

It isn't cheap, but splash out and go for Rez, you won't regret it :thumbsup:

Cheap and decent:
Uno: hotukdeals.com/ite…0-/
Geometry Wars

Others faves of mine are: Peggle; Carcasonne; Worms; Pacman: Champion Edition;

Just download the trials of any you fancy and try before you buy

Cheers guys, will check these out.

Any others !!!

Sensible Soccer?

Castlevania & Braid would be my other two picks. Happy gaming - I'm off to play some Fifa 09, having been a Pro Evo addict since PS1 days I just can't seem to score from crosses, corners or free kicks :thinking::roll:

I mostly play speedball2 & Carcasonne when I'm short of a full price game to play, Sensible Soccer is good 1 player but I don't think they have fixed they 'just quit at the end if your loosing and it won't count bug' so I've stayed away from that live.

Dig Dug's only 200msp, so that may be worth a punt?

Really?

Any other 200pt games?

I'd recommend Sonic 1 & 2, great games and aged fairly well.

Also, Braid is awesome

Yeah, I'd like to know if any other 200 point games, only need to be half decent at that price don't they.

Heard a few people sy bout Braid, you know how many points that currently is?

Already got the Sonic's on my Wii and Sega MegaDrive collection but cheers.

I think Braid is 1,200 points (ouch) - there was an offer on last month whereby you could get it for 800 but think that's finished now :-(

Not sure how much it is, but you shouold check out the demo of "Castle Crashers" it's pretty fun, also, not sure if it is still there, but they had a Doritos game on XBL a few months back, was a free download and wasnt half bad, quite fun for a little while anyway.
Hope that helps you out a bit,
