I found "Happy Wars" when I was looking for free Xbox 360 games. It's actually a very interesting game. It's another arcade game that's also an RPG. I've never actually played a game similar to this one, so it's probably worth writing a review on. Keep in mind that I have not spent very much time playing this game yet, so I may want to add more to this review.
In "Happy Wars" you join your friends (or random people) on Xbox Live and raid the other teams castle, on various maps. Whichever team destroys the enemy "Big Tower" inside the castle first wins the match. So it's fairly simple, for an RPG type game, but you do level up your character, and you can win or purchase different gear for him. There is also a single player mode, but I haven't tried it out yet.
There are 3 different character types: Warrior Types, Cleric Types, and Mage Types.
As a warrior you attack with various weapons, but you still have some special attacks, like throwing rocks, a spin attack, and even an attack in which you become a human missile.
Cleric Types can heal other players, and build siege weapons.
Mage Types have long range magic spells, and they can also enchant weapons.
All of the 3 character types can do a special team attack, which does much more damage.
The special attacks available to your character appear to be picked at random for each game.
So far, I like the game; possibly because it's somewhat different. It's missing some elements of RPG games, but that could be expected of an arcade game. If you just want to get right into the action and fight other players, it seems like a good free choice, so far. Don't expect stunning graphics, but the cartoon style graphics are rather entertaining. My Warrior Type character is wearing an opened can for a helmet, for example. This game only takes up about 500mb on your hard drive.
If you want to play this game on Xbox Live with me, my gamer tag is SpaceInvader75.
There are a couple of more free Xbox 360 games I'm looking forward to reviewing soon.

I haven't played this game for a few days because I bought "Red Dead Redemption", and I still seem to be somewhat addicted to Battlefield 3. lol But I think I've leveled up to around level 10, and it's still fun, so far.
