Ever since reading IGN’s editorial on how Splosion Man is comparable to Mario as a platformer (click here to check out the article), the game has been on my radar. Well, now the choice has been made real easy for me. It’s time to download, since Xbox Live Arcade’s Deal of the Week is 50% off of Splosion Man. The originally priced 800 Microsoft Point ($10) download is now at a nice price of 400 Microsoft Points ($5). Check out the demo, check out the article, check to see for yourself and let me know your thoughts on how it compares to Mario.
