This time the boys on Live Arcade got the old school done the way we've wanted it since the beginning, with Jetpac Refueled you get the original versian and a new and very much improved revamp of the classic. I wont tell you what you do in the game(read the GS review for that)but I'll fill you in on my time spent with it so far. Long and difficult, are probably the 2 words that best describe this little gem, it seems to dial the frustrating difficulty of the truely old school. The environments are gorgeous as are all of the little characters filling your screen, litterally there are so many baddies on screen later in the game that they actually fill it. There is a 2 player mode but it's adversarial, it would have been really cool if these guys had included a co-op mode. The retro version of Jetpac included with the download seems pretty close to the original as far as I can tell, but like Geometry wars you'll most likely be spending the majority of your time with the newer version. For only 400 points you can't pass this one up, the game is so long and tough that for 400 points it's a steal, if you have a soft spot for old school hard (Ninja Gaiden III hard) then do yourself a favour and pick this one up.
