The idea of Snoopy Flying Ace -- a violent, aerial shoot-em-up featuring Charlie Brown and friends -- might seem like an incredibly odd one, but it is executed fabulously. The visuals are absolutely stunning -- lush, smoothly rendered environments that are half realistic landscape, half cartoony Peanuts land (a desert battle, for instance, has you swooping around a Charlie-Brown-headed sphinx). The crash-boom-ping sound effects are also startlingly good (and we mean "startling" in more ways than one). You've also got smooth controls, and exciting, suspenseful action.

If not for the Peanuts tie-in, this probably would have been just a fantastic T-rated aerial warfare simulator. While the violence is toned down to a point at which it is certainly not T-rated, it is still far more than you'd ever expect from a Peanuts game.

Online interaction: Up to 16 players can engage in massive "deathmatch"-style aerial dogfights. The multiplayer action can be chaotic fun, but on Xbox Live, there's always the chance of hearing unedited chat comments from random players or players exchanging personal information.
