Missile Command Recharged Review (Xbox Series S)

Our Missile Command Recharged Review takes the classic arcade game and adds several layers of oomph and pizzaz. This revamped take on the classic introduces more power-ups, new enemies, and a suite of challenges that limit the number of counter-defenses at your disposal – not to mention co-op across all game modes! An amazing new soundtrack from the incomparable Megan McDuffee perfectly complements the gameplay and adds depth and variety.

Missile Command is back! I absolutely loved and still do love this game! Yeah yeah we had an entry a while back but it was lacking in places, it’s also nice to see devs go back to an old release and revamp it with new features that the newer games have. This is now the Missile Command Recharged version that can be called the definitive version of the game ever! They have gone with a whole new art style not just for Missile Command but for the Recharged series as a whole, Neon is still there but it’s not as in your face as you are used to. I love how easy the game is to get into play, you have arcade mode so you can just go and go with challenge mode being for a more refined game. This is the best-Recharged game and the best version of Missile Command and I couldn’t be happier! Protecting bases and shooting asteroids and aliens has never been so fun.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
