"An early indicator that there might be slight conceptual problems with Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is that you start to notice how clever everything is. Not necessarily the new additions, of which there are plenty, but the old stuff, like the way the collectable Geoms powering your multiplier encourage you to lurk dangerously close to your prey. The old stuff standing out is worrying enough in itself, but the deeper issue is that you're noticing it at all. With Bizarre Creations' Geometry Wars games there's traditionally never enough time to notice anything, let alone how brilliantly the systems slot together to entrap you. New developer Lucid's take on the series isn't slower - it's just a little less vital."
