One-sentence reviews of Xbox Live Arcade games:
Sonic the Hedgehog 2
: A faithful and accurate version of a decent-in-its-day but very dated game that's widely available both dirt cheap and free.Street Trace: NYC
: A hoverboard-based combat game, featuring hip X-treme characters and set in a post-apocalyptic New York City.
Track and Field
: The Konami arcade one, not the NES one, this will put Mario Party
-level stresses on your forty dollar controllers.Yaris
: I've owned a few, so believe me when I say that this game isn't nearly as much fun as a cheap Toyota.
Yi Are Kung Fu
: A fighting game from before the invention of dragon punches, multiple-hit combos and the third dimension.
