Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2

Square-Go
1 January 2009
  • Excerpt: Say goodbye to your irises: the original Xbox Live Arcade dual-stick shoot-‘em-up/acid-freak-out has returned. Geometry Wars was a hidden Easter Egg in the original Xbox’s Project Gotham Racing 2 , before the updated Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved inspired the plague of mediocre ‘one stick to move, one stick to shoot’ imitators which haunt Xbox Live Arcade today.

  • Conclusion: If you haven't bought the first game in the series, you have nothing to worry about here as it's still the same old forumla with a new look.

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2

  • Conclusion: If you’ve played the previous titles then you’ve probably already purchased Retro Evolved 2. It doesn’t offer anything new, but a fresh variation on what’s already been seen. It’s as old school as games come and that’s meant as a compliment. The achievements (which are actually achievable) round off a superb package. It’s simplistic gaming with an addictive edge. A game for everyone, which is well worth your precious Microsoft Points.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Geometry Wars 2 is a better game, not just because of the new modes but the emphasis on fun and novel ways to enjoy an otherwise linear experience.

  • Summary: While not as fresh and new as the original game, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 is a phenomenal action game full of unique modes, fun multiplayer and tons of excitement. It's marred only by a lack of online support and very few brand new ideas. But if you were a fan of the original and are not completely burned out on the overwhelming amount of dual-stick shooters, then you'll definitely want to pick up Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2!

Geometry Wars : Retro Evolved 2

  • Excerpt: Il y a deux ans, Bizarre Creations lâchait Geometry Wars sur le Xbox Live Arcade, un petit shoot'em up à l'ancienne qui à lui seul, partit imposer le service de téléchargement de la 360 auprès de joueurs qui, pour la plupart, doutaient encore de son intérêt. Immensément hardcore et terriblement addictif, ce petit bijou vint également satisfaire les possesseurs de Wii et de DS dans une version remaniée et étendue par un autre studio, Kuju Entertainement.

Test: Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2

xboxfront.de
17 December 2008
  • Summary: Als einer der Xbox Live Arcade-Launchtitel stach „Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved“ seinerzeit besonders hervor: Frenetische Ballerorgien, pulsierender Soundtrack und ein Schwierigkeitsgrad von einem anderen Stern, der vorwiegend Profis ansprach. Dennoch lief beim Erstling nicht alles rund: Ein Mehrspieler-Modus fehlte und dass die Übersicht bei großem Gegneraufkommen geraubt wurde, war ebenfalls negativ anzukreiden. Doch wofür gibt es schließlich Fortsetzungen?
  • Pros: + frenetische Bildschirm-Darbietung, + leichte Steuerung, + knallige Optik, + cooles Soundtrack, - kein Multiplayer via Xbox Live
