Can't say I'd ever heard of this before Gamecentral's review today, but it certainly sounds interesting:

IN SHORT: World War I has never been so much fun in this successful mix of Tower Defence and shoot 'em-up action.

PROS: Clever blend of genres that avoids most of the downtime problems of Tower Defence games. Great multiplayer.

CONS: Both the strategy and action elements are necessarily limited. Could've done with more unit types.

Has anyone taken the plunge and bought this yet? Haven't been on XBL for a while, but will check later, hopefully there's a demo for it!

:D Back of the line there blizeH :) Although I'm so much worse at that, I can't even see the line from where I am.

All my hard work...for nothing.

I've been playing this for the last couple of days or so, and it's well worth at least trying the demo. I absolutely detest tower defence games but this is something different. This allows a degree of more direct involvement so it's stonkingly good fun rather than like watching paint dry.

The planes and tanks are made of awesomes.

Yep it's a mythical beast where the more dangerous elements of AATG hang out.
