    Is actually really good! I have to admit when i 1st saw this advertised i wasnt impressed or interested but after grabbing it at a cheap price on ebay i'm very happy i did. Out of the 40 or so mini-games on there i'd say about 10 of them are well worth playing and with 3 mates it's a great party game, especially the Sumo which is a right good laugh and Tailblazer which is a fun rip-off of the old Tron game.

    I wouldnt recommend paying full price for it but if you see it cheap then it's well worth a try.

    Each to his own, I guess.

    I agree with Paul, I received Fuzion Frenzy for Christmas and it has been a blast. Of course it is no fun unless you are playing with 3 friends, but if you have the right group of people together it can become quite competitive. Twisted System would be one of our favorites, also sumo, the waterfall one and the one where you start with three gems and the one without a gem gets eliminated and it keeps going till the one who wins has the gem, can't remember what it is called but I know we played that single game for about 2 hours late one evening. If I remember correctly it ended when one controller went smashing up against a wall [​IMG]

    I love Fusion Frenzy! Good mindless multiplayer fun, especially with your own soundtrack. My friends are giving me hell because I always play old school punk rock when we play. Favorite games are Sumo and Money Pool. Everyone hates the button-press music games, but the others are quite fun.

    Uk members check out Play247 as they are selling it at a cracking price of £17.99 delivered, it's well worth picking up at that price!

    I just got my X-Box today and played the demo version of this game...pretty cool, but needs to be played with friends to be fully enjoyed I think.

    The only reason I bought it(on the cheap I might add) is to play with friends, but it is a BLAST! Talk about competitive...it just rocks!

    Is this title playable with just two people? My girlfriend really wants a not-so-serious game to play alongside me on the XBox (she likes Mario Party for the N64 for example but won't play NCAA Football or DOA3 with me) and this just went down to $20.

    We do have friends over but most times we'd be gaming with only the two of us. Are the other 2 players either not included in a 2 player game, or are they computer controlled (and is the difficulty for the computer players selectable)?

    TIA!

    Thanks Romar, but what i really wanted to know was, is this game just as fun if only 2 people play (as opposed to 4)? Is it one-on-one at that point? Or does the XBox provide two more competitors to make it 4 player w/ 2 XBox-controlled players?

    Thanks!

    Agreed with above - it's a blast. More fun with each extra person. Also something that's good to play with the wife.

    Thanks all! To answer my own question (for others who may have the same) the levels for the Non-player-characters (XBox controlled) is selectable (Easy/Medium/Hard). Unfortunately, unlike in Mario Party 3, all the NPCs have the same difficulty level. When we used to play MP3 we would set one NPC for easy and one for medium (my SO isn't the greatest at these games) but here in Fuzion Frenzy we have to set both to easy.

    Had a blast playing for about 1/2 hour last night, and she does seem excited to play again. Maybe when Gamecube drops the price (or offers Mario Party 4 in a bundle) we'll spring for that console...
