Mechassault

ACTION

(Xbox; Microsoft; Teen) Incorporating pyrotechnic explosions that would do Michael Bay proud, the makers of this robot-combat blaster have fashioned a game whose sole focus is mass destruction. As the commander of a 31st-century BattleMech, you'll stomp across 20 levels and destroy everything in sight -- buildings, vehicles, and rival 'Mechs. The controls are simple (just point and shoot), but the single-player carpet-bomb mentality is a bit much. Check out the head-to-head online mode, where you can battle other gamers while verbally humiliating them via the Xbox Live headset.
