  • 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!

  • Excerpt: "...is exactly the premise behind Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved, made available on Xbox Live Arcade. As expected Geometry Wars' graphics are nothing to write home about. The style is reminiscent of retro games, but it has been given a modern makeover. Featuring a simple 2D perspective it places the focus much more on game play, although this isn't necessarily a bad thing. In recent times, the emphasis for developers has been on creating the most visually ...
  • Pros: Fun, addictive gameplay .
  • Cons: Basic graphics .

  • Excerpt: "Geometry Wars is a Game with a basic concept and is fairly easy to play, but very difficult to master, very colourful and very good for a quick pickup game. Originally released as a mini game in Project Gotham Racing 3, Geometry wars became a cult hit and it’s easy to see why. The only aim of the game being to get as many points a possible. The pure simplicity is what this game has going for it. However this may be one of its main stumbling ...

  • Excerpt: "This review will be fairly short, as there's not exactly that much to write about. But still, I digress. Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved is about blasting as much stuff as you possible can (little Geometric shapes) without loosing a life. The aim is simple, get the highest score you can humanly achieve. You wouldn't believe it now, but once upon a time, this is what the point in a video game was. To get your name to the top of that arcade machine ...

  • Summary: Este es un juego de arcade que como digo en el título me desquicia, pero engancha tanto que no puedo dejar de jugar, es de los más divertidos de arcade que tengo. *****GEOMETRY WARS: RETRO EVOLVED***** El título del videojuego esta acorde con lo que nos encontraremos en él, ya que es un juego bastante retro, por lo básico que es, con una sóla pantalla que se repite en las fases.
  • Pros: todas
  • Cons: ninguna
