Hybrid (Xbox 360 XBLA) Box Art(http://www.whatishybrid.com/)  Rated T for Teen by ESRB.   Hybrid is the latest entry in Xbox Live’s Summer of Arcade special. Hybrid is a third person shooter that is set in a war torn future environment, which includes some very advanced weaponry and capabilities for the players to choose from, including a faction to fight for and where in the world they’d like to stage their battle. Hybrid may start off looking like your standard third person shooter, but it is actually far from it.

Hybrid only allows players to move from cover to cover, thus putting much more emphasis on the strategy aspect of the battles. You move from cover spot to cover spot by using a jet back, which you can strafe from left to right while in the air. The map sizes are very small, but this doesn’t hurt at all, since the games only hold 4 V 4 battles. The players have a wide array of customization options to choose from, such as weapons, different perks, speed boosts, and many more. I was very impressed by the number of options for customization given to the player in Hybrid. This also enhanced the re-playability and the fun of the game, since these customization options can only be unlocked by earning experience points through the battles. 

Hybrid offers an enjoyable and surprising mix of basic gameplay elements, coupled with deep levels of customization. My only complaint is that it takes a very long time to find a match online, but, hopefully, this will get fixed in a patch. Shooter fans, Hybrid will tide you over until Halo 4, or for the rest of the summer, either way I’d recommend getting it.
