XBLA top down shooters?

#1 Posted by zudthespud (3333 posts) -

So i watched the latest Quick Look Video and it reminded me how fun these games can be. Are there any decent ones on XBLA? Preferably 2 player. I looked at a couple of previous of XEVIOUS but it looked a little primitive.

There is Smash TV, it is not like XEVIOUS in the ship shooting sense, but it is a lot of fun.

Smash TV is the shit, Aegis Wing is a left right shooter and it's free. I may download R-Type Dimensions this weekend, been craving some R-Type for a long time.

All you need is Ikaruga.

It's balls-bustingly hard, of course, but it's awesome.

Ikaruga is great, and Smash TV is the best old school shoot em up there too.

There's Ikaruga, 1942: Joint Strike, and both Assault Heroes games are pretty good. I'm pretty sure the first AH is a "XBLA Favorite" or whatever those discounted games are called.
