If you played N on the internet, in its flash incarnation, you know it's a game of speed, finesse and exploding body parts. N+ for the Xbox Live Arcade is more of the same - except in hi definition and with one really nice addition - online co-op.
The co-op mode in N+ allows you to play with up to three of your friends in special levels designed just for co-op. The basic goal of N+ is to hit a switch and open a door, then exit via said door. Sounds simple right? Well you'll have to dodge rocket, jump mines, ninja wall jump and more to achieve your goal. In co-op, the task is split. One player has access to open the door while the other can actually exit the level. So while there's no direct team work, you must both survive to win the level. This isn't easy with only two players as once one dies, the other person must self destruct. Luckily with four players you'll get another shot at your goal.
Sadly the best part of N+ is actually the gruesome deaths. I've never seen a game that encourages death by making it so damn funny. Seriously, I can't even describe in words how great it is. Lucky for you - we have our video review!
