I've always had a soft spot for Fuzion Frenzy. I'm not entirely sure which soft spot, but, you know, one you wouldn't mind laying your head down on. Despite it being possibly the most uncool launch title ever, it was one of the best four-player post-pub games around.
Famously Bill Gates' favourite Xbox 1 game, it was a pretty easy target for the critics when it first came out. Stood next to Gotham and Halo, a geeky looking futuristic party game was hardly going to be held up as a poster child for the next generation, but it was pretty much damned to hell despite actually being rather good. Shame.
So why is the sequel so crushingly bad by comparison? Surely the addition of online play would make the whole concept irresistible, right? You'd think.
