Summary: For how simplistic the game mechanics are, this game is a HUGE triumph. Don't expect a story, characters, online play, nor a vast array of PC configuration options. That being said, the game is still addicting and ramps up quickly after about 5-10 minutes of gameplay. You will find yourself trying to beat your own high scores in this arcade game, and it has good use as a quick 5-15 minute For how simplistic the game mechanics are, this game is a HUGE triumph.
Summary: I play this every now and then when I have a few minutes to kill. The game has excellent replayability despite its low amount of content - making it a perfect arcade game. The gameplay is entertaining, challenging and keeps you on edge. You will feel like a God when you're avoiding entire swarms while shooting them simultaneously. Extra points because this game popularized the double stick I play this every now and then when I have a few minutes to kill.
Summary: From an unknown indie developer comes Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved. Although having been released some four to five years ago, it was only after some investigation that I discovered this little gem on the Steam store... and I was not disappointed! Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved's premise is simple: using a self, newly-coined phrase, it's a "twin-stick-shooter", whereas you control some kind From an unknown indie developer comes Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved.
Summary: When it comes to simple concepts Geometry Wars prevail in that from. Challenging, Fun, impossible. Geometry Wars is just to dam-- hard but dam--- fun. Just like the studio, Bizarre until the end.
Summary: I love this game. The visuals are like an Einstein equation in 3D color. The control is simple. The gameplay is highly addictive. I find that I often set down for a quick round or two and before I know it I've lost hours. Two thumbs up!
Summary: Simple, yet addictive, with good retro-styled graphics and smooth controls. This games only demise is its lack of replay value, as it seems monogamous after a few plays. Either way, a fun shoot-em up to play every once and a while.
Summary: The game has a minimum longevity. Graphically it is nice but like him there are many other indie games that deserve more attention. The game supports the Xbox 360 gamepad to play well, but for more than two hours becomes extremely boring and repetitive. I do not understand how you can give ratings such as 10 for a game like that.
Absolutely great party game that'll keep you amused for hours

Excerpt: Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved is an absolutely bonkers Xbox Live Arcade game, available from the XBL Marketplace for 400 Microsoft Points (aprox. £3) with a free demo also available. The aim of the game is to kill as many pieces of the enemy shapes as possible before you die, the game becomes very hard very quickly and is an absolutely great laugh, especially with a group of friends each trying to better the others' scores.
Overall is fun and simple, easy to learn, difficult to master

Excerpt: This arcade game is available on the Xbox live marketplace and recently has been packaged for sale in shops as an actual game. It's quite simple really you are a small white spaceship in a large box of empty space, you must shoot coloured shapes as they either fly around, towards or into you although some have various projectiles and special abilities which are unique to their colour shape and this brings variety into the game.
