XBIR (XBox 'Indie' Reviews) Intro.

Over the next n days (where n is the number of days that it happens to take), I shall review all the XBox Indie games.

This is largely for my own benefit. Along the way, I may discover small traits - easy to add in development - that make an average game great by their presence or vice versa. I may learn a little about the state of that market. I will almost certainly have some fun.

Though I may choose to buy some of these games, I will base these reviews on nothing more than the trials. In a sense, for the multi-level games, this could be considered a review of first impressions; the opening minutes.

These reviews will not have a score but I plan to summarise, then pick a few good traits and a few bad. I plan to then write however much I choose, going off on a tangent if I so wish. Bear in mind that I will not mention everything. These 'reviews' are not intended to be purchasing guides for anyone other than myself. However, if anyone else finds them:
a) enjoyable to read
b) useful
c) so horrible to read that they post comments or send me e-mails, which later make me laugh
then the benefits publishing them online will have surpassed my expecations .

Why don't you try nebulon, there's something about it that is good.

Thanks for the tip!

I'm planning to 'review' them all in alphabetic order, though (the easiest way I can see to ensure I don't miss any) so I'm sure I'll get to it... in time. :-)

Although there are nearly 1000 offerings now. Almost daunting.
