The really interesting part about Xbox Live community games is that they’ll really stretch the definition of what a “game” really is. And Drum Xplosion, which really isn’t a game so much as it is a big drum kit, will still provide a lot of fun.
Considering that a proper drum kit with all the bells and whistles can cost hundreds, even thousands, of dollars, the fact that this one only costs two hundred Microsoft points and yet offers fully fifty different customizable drum sounds is a point worth bearing in mind. You can even string together two different Xbox 360 controllers to simulate a full drum kit. Fully customizable in a lot of different ways, this may well be the most extensive drum simulator ever released, even counting Rock Band.
If you ever wanted a drum kit growing up, or were a former percussionist looking to get back into practice, then you’ll likely enjoy playing Drum Xplosion. In fact, parents out there should be advised that, now, Junior can actually afford his OWN drum kit even on what little allowance you’re giving him. But if you can’t stand the racket or weren’t a band nerd back in high school, then this one may not be the one for you.
