Raskulls - Great fun

Rasculls on the Xbox Live Arcade is quite a mash up: Tetris meets Sonic meets Simon's Quest. It's everything a great side scroller / platformer should be. It moves quick.... at times almost Sonic quick and that's a lot of fun. A lot of the levels are speed challenges but not all. It reminds me of
the good old days of trying to beat Super Mario Brothers without dying as fast as I could. This is the first game I've played in a long time that actually made my hands ache and yet I kept playing... A good portion of the levels are puzzles not races where the objective is to get through the level with a minimum number of "zaps".

I can tell I'm not even a tiny way through the adventure / story version of the game and it looks like there's online racing and more so I think this game is a definite winner. Check it out...

Multiplayer Online
Matching went quickly and I have to say XBL seemed to do a good job of matching me with a similarly skilled player. It was a 1 on 1 match and we were pretty closely matched. I only won one of the four races though and definitely need to practice the levels I'm going to be playing if I want to get competitive!
