Gun Bros for Xbox LIVE blasts its way onto the Windows Phone Marketplace [Video]
Warning: This game comes with Bro-ops & could be awesome for your health
We’ve given you a sneak back in early June but now you too can get your hands on Glu Mobile’s Gun Bros game for Windows Phone. And it’s free.
The game is a classic top-down arcade shooter (reminds us a lot of SmashTV) where you and your ‘Bro’ go around and basically destroy everything you can. We like that idea. Plus you can upgrade you weapons along the way giving a unique level of customization.
We took it for just a quick spin (see the video below) on our Titan II and boy to the graphics look stellar…very arcade like and the controls aren’t too shabby (dual virtual sticks), so we’re thinking it should be good but look for our detailed review a little later.
Gun Bros is technically a ‘freemium’ game which means, well, that it’s free. The catch? There really isn’t one as you can play the whole game without paying a dime. But, if you want the cool experience with all the big guns, cheats and different options you will have to purchase those as you go along. Of course there are plenty of regular weapons and upgrades that are all free so there shouldn’t be too many complaints from you folks.
Anyway, less talk, more rock. Go pick up Gun Bros for Xbox LIVE here in the Windows Phone Marketplace. Sound off in comments on your thoughts about the game. Thanks, zebrasqual, for the link

maybe a tango bug?
32gb sd swap no issues
The "Xbox Phone" has the worst games by far...
People give 5 stars too easily often just because they think it's fun and forget to criticize the bad parts about the game because most often they are there.
then maybe you shouldn’t be playing games.
if you're talking graphics wise, remember that they can only so much without native code
And nothing's wrong with WP, it's Glu that's not very good.
I guess it might have to do with the fact that I have a 32gb sd card and a custom rom on it, but if anything I thought that would make it worse... strange.
it's not on the swiss marketplace or on the windowsphone site...
The only thing I would complain about are some xbl connectivity isssues.
