'Wreckateer' Brings Castle Crushing Home To Your Xbox 360

The summer months usually aren't too kind to new video game releases. All of the major publishers are holding their best cards until the holidays, but that doesn't mean that gamers are left at a loss for quality games. Take, for example, Wreckateer, an Xbox 360 downloadable title that's part of Microsoft's Summer of Arcade promotion. Sure, it's a Kinect game, but it's actually a good one, and besides, how else have you been rationalizing your purchase lately?

Wreckateer puts you in control of a medieval ballista (think catapult launcher) that has to destroy 60 different castles. Players use their avatar to control the direction, velocity and height of six different kinds of shots (basic, speed, split, flying, bomb, and lift) as they rocket out of the catapult towards goblin-infested fortresses. Change the shot's direction midflight, or activate their abilities to maximize your destruction. The more you destroy, the more points you rack up in your quest to collect gold medals.

Now, you may be saying to yourself, "one of the reasons I don’t use my Kinect now is because I don’t like to look stupid getting up off the couch and moving to control my games." Don't worry my friends, Wreckateer isn't as intensive of a workout as you've come to expect from all those games you aren't playing anyways. It's little more activity than reaching out to pick up a box and then releasing the box to let it go. In fact, it's even less work because you don’t need to actually pick up a box.

Whether motion-based games are your thing or not, it's hard to deny that Wreckateer is pretty enjoyable. Think of it as a first person Angry Birds without all those pesky birds and pigs. Oh, and there's more explosions... a lot more explosions.
