Speedball II, will be hitting Xbox Live Arcade next wednesday. So, if you have some points left over, this shouldn't be a title to miss. It was certainly tons of fun from what I can remember back in the day. It will be getting the standard HD makeover along with new teams and multiplayer. Here is a brief description of the game.
Regarded as a break-though title that took the sports genre to a new level, the Bitmap Brothers classic, Speedball, was first released for the Amiga in 1990 and quickly became a huge success. However it wasn’t until the release of its sequel, Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe that the title reached new gaming heights and sold over 2 million units. It is still considered by many to be one of the best games of all time. The Xbox LIVE Arcade version is a perfect conversion of Speedball II: Brutal Deluxe but with the addition of an all-new High Definition version, more teams and downloadable content, whilst still retaining all the classic elements that have made it a firm favourite amongst gamers.
