Free Xbox Live Game: Aegis Wing

Microsoft has released a completely free Xbox Live Arcade game, called Aegis Wing. The game was designed by the Xbox Live Arcade Intern Team, and it appears it will remain free. Very cool idea, showing how game development on Live Arcade is so easy, a three person intern team could do it.

I just played the game, and it is a classic side-scrolling space shooter, but with HD graphics and 3D models. The 3D models are good enough to almost shock you, as they almost seem out of place in such an old style of game. If there’s one thing this game does extremely well, its show off the power of the Xbox 360 gamepad, which is so easy to control that I found it easier to move around obstacles than in any of the side scrollers I’ve played before.

Aegis Wing is a free 46 MB download for all Xbox Live Silver and Gold members. Gold members will be able to play the multiplayer mode in addition to the standard single player mode. The game even comes with 12 Achievements for you to earn, so it’s probably worth downloading just for Achievement junkies.
