Switchball is another excellent example of why services like the Xbox Live Arcade need to exist. As a standalone Xbox 360 game, Switchball would not have cut it. There just isn't enough game here and it's over too quickly, but as an inexpensive Xbox...

Switchball doesn't try to be anything it's not. Not only is this one of the best puzzle games on the Xbox Live Arcade, but it's also a fantastic looking game with a compelling gimmick. If you had fun playing with marbles as a kid then Switchball is the...

All in all, this is a nice addition to the XBLA collection. When you're ready for some “down” time from the hectic fraggin', Switchball is a good change of pace

Fantastic physics really give the game a great feel ; Outstanding level design ; Some of the best graphics on XBLA ; Nice sound effects and music

Tragically short ; Somewhat problematic camera ; Not enough variety in the presentation ; Where's my level creator? I want a level creator

Sure, it's too short, but it's also inexpensive, and it's so fun to play you'll be begging for more. Definitely worth a download!

Finally, it's acceptable to play with your balls

Easy controls ; Gradual learning curve ; Creative puzzles

Not enough levels ; Finnicky camera ; Bit of trial-and-error
