"Back in 2008, on the eve of the Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 launch, lead programmer Stephen Cakebread proudly announced that his team had enough ideas "for probably about 10 games." Sadly, this confidence didn't translate into a string of sequels. With the exception of the iOS release in 2010, Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is the first new installment in six years. And while it's a solid, well-built extension of one of my favorite Xbox 360 games, the whole thing makes me wonder why it took Activision so long to make a proper follow-up.
Whatever the reason, I'm happy to report that Dimensions is yet another fun addition in the Geometry Wars franchise. Although it has been six years, the brand new developers have not missed a beat. This sequel largely builds on what we saw in Retro Evolved 2, adding more game modes and a lengthy single-player campaign. It may not reinvent the dual-stick shooter genre, but I can't imagine fans being disappointed with this $15 package."
