    Wow this game really surprised me when I finally bought it.

    I played the trial of this game a few times and just made fun of it with friends, and thought it was a stupid game. After a few months of joking around about buying it I finally bought it, and its awesome. Well the mul... Read Full Review

    This Game is Hard, but fun.

    Just like Ikaruga, this game sucks when you first get it. it takes tons of practice and talent to like this game. Once you get good enough, this game is amazing. When this game gets amazing, it becomes a fun challenge yo... Read Full Review

    Flawless revival of a classic

    I always loved the Joust arcade game. When I was a kid, some family friends had a machine and I would always play over and over trying to beat the high score. I didn't expect this game to show up ob XBLA, but kudos to M... Read Full Review

    Great classic that didnt go bad.

    Joust is just an all time favorite, if u were a kid in 1982, and played video games, than chances are you probably spent a couple of dollars playing this game at the local arcade. For a 24 year old game it still is fun t... Read Full Review

    If you're looking for a semi-entertaining game, go ahead and buy Joust.

    I really don't get it. Why do people like to play this game? I mean sure, it's fun for maybe a half-hour, but after that, it gets REALLY boring. For those not familiar with Joust, it's this game where you ride this wy... Read Full Review

    Erm.... no just no...

    This game was not appealing to me... I don't know if it was the fact that the graphics were just giving me a head ache, but yeah.... it just got really boring really fast. And i know a lot of you will not agree with me, ... Read Full Review

    Joust Is A Very Fun Game That Takes Alot Of Hard Work And Time To Get Pretty Good At It.

    Joust For Xbox 360. Joust is an old game that I’ve played for a long time and never really got the gist of it besides knowing that running into an enemy and knocking them off was a good thing. One of the best loved ga... Read Full Review

    Truly a "gamer's game". There are no patterns to learn, no tricks, no codes...It's all skill...

    This game takes me back...waaaayyy back! I've always loved this game, since I played the original arcade version at my local horse-racing track as a young boy in the early 80's. This is the original 1982 Williams arcad... Read Full Review
