Xbox Live Arcade got its most explosive title yet today, as Boom Boom Rocket blasted on to Xbox Live Marketplace. The rhythm game is the first Xbox Live Arcade one to be published by Electronic Arts and was developed by Bizarre Creations, the British studio responsible for Project Gotham Racing 3 and the XBLA hit Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved.

In Boom Boom Rocket, gamers with a penchant for pyrotechnics will have their fingers kept busy as they try to time fireworks' explosions to one of 10 songs created by Ian Livingstone, the composer for Project Gotham Racing 2. There are three single-player modes (Normal, Speed, Freestyle), a practice mode, and two offline multiplayer modes (Battle and Endurance).

Boom Boom Rocket is rated E for Everyone and costs 800 Marketplace points ($10). For more information, read GameSpot's previous coverage or check back later for a full review.
