Story
Splosion Man is the humorous story of the biggest mistake in the history of the R & D division of the Big Science Company. In an experiment gone wrong, Splosion Man, a playful human-like creature with an explosive demeanor yet who was originally designed as a weapon has escaped, and the company has been trying to stop him ever since. But considering his particular talents, this is easier said than done. Made entirely of Splosive material, Splosion Man leaves a wake of destruction behind him, turning the malicious scientists into meat and their robot flunkies into scrap heaps with his splodalicious abilities.

Gameplay
Splosion Man is an action platformer in which you take on the role of Splosion Man in his quest to elude the scientists and robots of The Big Science Company. The goal is to clear as many levels as possible, as fast as possible, while scoring as many points as possible. With this in mind players spend the majority of their time running, jumping, and utilizing Splosion Man's signature means of locomotion, the "splode", a series of up to three jumps, each punctuated with an explosion that takes out enemies in range. This tactic is important not only for the hilarious affect it has on scientists—literally turning them into cold cuts—and as a means of enacting dramatic platforming moves, but also as a way to increase players' scores, which in part is based on the number of enemies bested. The power to pull off this ability is not limitless though, and must be recharged after used three times in series. Points can also be scored in other ways, including finding cakes, which are Splosion Man's favorite food, hidden throughout the gameplay area. As a natural result of the importance of speed, as the game progresses through its 50 levels, action in the game grows more challenging. Players having difficulty completing levels can opt instead to follow the comical "Way of the Coward", which after a certain amount of deaths in a single spot allows the player to skip the current level and proceed to the next. The embarrassing tradeoff for this free pass is that players start off the next level dressed in a tutu, and of course a less than spectacular score. Additional features rounding out the gameplay of Splosion Man include puzzle-solving, 2-4 player coop in both in local play and via Xbox LIVE, unlockable bonuses for use throughout Xbox LIVE, custom interactive soundtracks, leaderboard support and voice messaging.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tight-knuckled old school platforming fun August 17, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Make no mistake: this game is HARD. Not at first, though. It eases you into it, making you think it's gonna be a breeze, but then they ramp up the difficulty and 'splode timing. If you like old school platforming games, this one is not to be missed. The only difference here is the frustration factor present in most of the older games is missing here. It is just pure fun. 40% platformer, 40% puzzle game, 20% time trial racer = 100% awesome.

This game is totally worth $10. In my opinion it's worth $20.

The game can be really hard, and frustrating, especially when playing multiplayer for the first few times but the learning curve isn't a very big one. Using 'Splosion Man's unique 'Splosion ability you can jump off walls, 'Splode bad guys into steak, and race around to the end of the levels. Some of the levels can get quite frustrating but the game contains enough easier levels to balance out the frustrating ones.

The game also has some nice replay value due to hidden Cake to collect and the time trial aspect. If you have a group of friends (it's a four-player co-op!) the fun really begins as the multiplayer levels are 100% different from the single player ones. You need to work together to get past the multiplayer levels which adds the fun.

Once you get past the initial learning curve, which isn't very big, I'd give this game a 10/10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remember the old days? December 11, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you are a person who played games over 20 years ago, you might remember a time when most games were in 2D, that is to say, you were usually a character that moved from left to right, jumping his way past obstacles to reach his or her objetive. If any of this brings warm and fuzzy feelings of nostalgia, you might want to check out 'Splosion Man.

Not only does this appeal to the old school gamer sensibilites, it also harkens back to a more fun oriented design of games, when the were simple by necesity, but also fun by a careful balance of said design. You control the 'Splosion man in this game via the Dpad or thumbstick, while all the face buttons make you explode. This simple to get control scheme actually opens up the game, making it more about you being good at it than learning 20 odd moves to finish a game. It's all about you and the levels, many of which will make you remember those days of throwing fits and controllers out of frustration.

While I do admit the game gets very hard at points, it's possible to skip levels and even play levels with friends. It's the kind of game that makes you feel very satisfied at the moment you get past that tricky obstacle or clear that maddening jump that had you screaming. If you can take that with a little sadistic smile, than I recommend you download this game today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Fun! August 17, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
"Everybody love doooOOOooonuts" -this is just one of the quirky highlights of this game. This 2.5-D sidescrolling game is one that stands out from the rest in it's humor and interesting puzzles. It's a difficult game at times, but one that you won't want to stop once you start. And at $10 (800 MS points), it's a steal!
