Steam user reviews are always a good sign that a game is worthy of your time. Yet no matter whether you have thousands or just a hundred or so, as long as those reviews sit in the Mostly Positive bracket, there’s immediate hope. That’s the case for Yeo’s Arrest of a Stone Buddha as it brings a well received Steam release and Nintendo Switch version across to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, Arrest of a Stone Buddha sees you whisked back to 1970s France – 1976, in fact – as you become a hitman in search of answers. Perhaps not a hitman on Agent 47 levels, but a hitman nonetheless.
Running a price of £12.49 from the Xbox Store, this is a game that covers the most basic of everyday life elements – if you’re hungry you head to the cafe, if you’re looking to spend some downtime you’ll find a cinema ready and waiting. And when you just want to head off on a bit of a killing spree, the non-stop shoot ’em up action will see you covered.
One shot kills are prevalent here in Arrest of a Stone Buddha on Xbox, and as you’re playing through life as a professional killer, you never need to worry about missing. You don’t even need to be concerned about ammo either – run out, chuck your gun away and disarm your foes in order to grab a new one. It’s all simple stuff. But there are still questions that need answering, and you’re here to do just that.
The other questions concern how well Arrest of a Stone Buddha has been transferred to the world of Xbox, and only our full review will be able to detail that. Keep an eye out for it as and when we can.
As a professional killer you’ll live through November 1976 alternating non-stop shoot’em up action with a downtempo mundane life. You’re fast and lucky enough so you don’t plan your actions too far. You kill with one shot and you never miss. When you’re run out of ammo you just throw a gun away. You can disarm any enemy and use any weapon. And when it’s time to get out you just use a vehicle nearby. You have an apartment in the historical center of the city. When you want to eat you go to a cafe, and you can visit a museum or a cinema when you’re looking for entertainment. And you have a lover when you need a woman. And there’s this question which is longing for an answer.
