Xbox 360's first free-to-play game doesn't quite dazzle

Happy Wars sees Microsoft finally, belatedly, enter the world of free-to-play gaming. It's a team-based multiplayer game that sees you and up to 29 other players engage in cutesy swords-and-sorcery combat, as two teams attempt to capture the base of their opponent. Think a 3D version of Awesomenauts based on a kids' TV show set in medieval times, and you're in the right postcode.... read more

Personally, I'm really enjoying it. It's simple yet fun, and it's free so there's nothing to complain about, if you do complain then as far I'm concerned your mental.

Punching yourself in the face is also free, but it's not necessarily the best way to spend what short time we have on this mortal coil.

Crash Course and Harms Way are better ways to spend £0.00 on xbl

I like it; I've already spent ~30 hours on it and have 100% achievements.

As many of us thought, Play the game for free and loose to those who can splash the cash. F2P secretly hiding a P2W. I believe a colective "We told you so" is In order.

You could just do the co-op, play as a group against the computer, that way everyone wins (or gets obliterated)

I don't agree about it being pay to win one bit. I haven't spent a penny on the game and I'm usually MVP, I also have over 1500 kills for ~300 deaths. Use the Happy Spinner for the chance to get some good weapons with the in-game currency and if you have no good weapons stay back and play a support role. It's also a good idea to play the story missions as you unlock them, they offer some good rewards.

The game's free, but you still need a Gold subscription to play online.

I would say that this game is ok but its not exactly a shocker.The gameplay is just about button mashing with little use for organization. Also (not including the spin the wheel) your up to your neck in pay to win which is always annoying.

But it is free so i wouldn't not recommend it to anyone.
