    Dual joysticks for enhancing the surgeon's reflexes.

    A quick retro review of the arcade classic from 1982, gameplay wise. Robotron 2084 is the clumsy ancestor of arena shooters ( are there any machines left ? ). Think about a prehistoric 2D squared arena filled with 2 bit ... Read Full Review

    Did a 10 year old make this?

    This game is horrible, its watered down, simple mechanics, terrible sprites, bland, (yes i know its old, but come on, there were much better sprites at that time) and it was just dumb. If you want a game like this, get S... Read Full Review

    This is a long one!

    "Robotron: 2084" is essentially an arcade perfect port, of the classic arcade game, for the Xbox Live Arcade. Complete with the everything that made that game great back in 1982, and some new upgrades that make the game ... Read Full Review

    Obviously OdinDragoon is a n00b to games or he/she would know that Robotron is old-school. It's what spawned Smash TV.

    Xbox Live Arcade scores another great hit...In a familiar package. This classic is also enhanced this time around.

    Probably most of you are too young to remember this game being in arcades. Hell, I barely remember it...but that doesn't mean that it isn't one of the most addicting games in the XBL Arcade. Another shooter where left-st... Read Full Review

    Robotron is a fun short arcade experience.

    Robotron for the 360 is a very fun arcade style shooter. It is much like Smash TV where you use both analog stick, one to run and one to shoot. The games graphics are pretty lame where you are a stick figure and shoot ... Read Full Review

    One of the Best Arcade games on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

    Robotron: 2084 is one of the best games in the Xbox Live Arcade in my opinion. It starts out easy but it gets a lot harder when you get through the game. The Game does feature Online Multiplayer, Co-Op, and a Leade... Read Full Review

    I guess I just don't get it...

    Well there was all sorts of talk about this game being the greatest game of all time (I believe it was the Xbox maketing lead that said that) and I knew that it was an old classic and not to expect anything special from ... Read Full Review
