Review: XG Blast! (Nintendo DS)

Diehard GameFAN
5 September 2009
  • Summary: XG Blast! is a lesser version of both Asteroids and Geometry Wars , and although fans of the two will enjoy their time with this game, they will also feel it a bit lacking. Although the $19.99 price tag is nice, the game does have some minor control issues as it feels like it should be played with two analog sticks rather than a D-pad and buttons. The soundtrack is quite nice, but the rest of the auditory aspects are lacking.

XG Blast! (DS) Review

10 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Do you like shoot-em-ups? I like shoot-em-ups. XG Blast is a pretty good shoot-em-up. You’ll have to excuse me for making some comparisons to Geometry Wars and the like, because it’s really hard not to. You see, XG Blast is a pretty good game, but it’s little more than a similar take on a genre that has been really popular for the last couple of years, but is starting to wind-down a bit. Is it fun?

  • Excerpt: They’re onto us. Our deepest, most powerful secrets are close to being unearthed. We must stop this now. Years of hard work and dedication may be rendered worthless within a matter of minutes. It’s time to suit up and ignite our best hope of survival. Stand back, sit down, do whatever you need to stay put. Ladies and gentlemen of Aknathen, it’s time to settle this. It’s time to launch XG Blast !

  • Summary: If you want a game like this, buy 'Geometry Wars: Galaxies' on DS. If you already have it, then buy it again, for a friend so you can play the multiplayer.

XG Blast!

26 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Un petit vaisseau lâché dans l'espace. Des hordes d'ennemis aussi bigarrés que hargneux. Quelques bonus destinés à booster votre score ou modifier la nature vos tirs. Voilà en quelques mots toute l'essence de XG Blast! un shoot'em up qui s'inspire dans une très large mesure de Geometry Wars Galaxies. Mais dans ces conditions, la question est justement de savoir si le soft a les épaules suffisamment solides pour jouer dans la même catégorie que son modèle.
