I've been playing it all morning. Love Geo Wars and this is no different.

Is this anything similar to Ikaruga? I've been playing Ikaruga for countless hours and loved it because it never became unfair. You have to memorize the level and then try to get the best highscore (by collecting chains). It's really rewarding.
So back to my question: is the gameplay similar? Can anyone explain me what you have to do (beside getting the highest score)

Move with left stick, shoot with right basically.

Different from Ikaruga as that's a schmup(sp?) Geometry wars is in a confined area, with enemies spawning around you.... Plus flashing colours :D

You can't predict a whole level and time everything for runs like Ikaruga.

Think Asteroids but on LSD and you get to move about... that's the best I can come up with after playing the damn game til 5am... LOL...

I'll be getting the full version this week and have been enjoying the Trial very much. great game.

no online play but only local 4 player. Very disappointing...

GW2 is a 8/10 in my books.

I can't beat the 6th mode in sp for the life of me.

Nevers3706d ago

.. but I can look past that pretty quick.

Im addicted to this game but i was expecting the multiplayer mode to be online compatible. Not incredibly fussed but just a tad disappointing. Now, back to trying to complete that last mode! (im up to level 18 :@ lol). So hows everyone else getting on with it?

starnge, i thought ALL xbla games had to have online MP, i guess not.

Nevers3706d ago

but I think they cut it cuz there's just way too much happening in GeoWars2 to make it accurate for both parties to survive. Even a split second of lag can get you deaded in this game, which would be more frustrating for me than anything. Still... Heavy Weapon has a p!ss ton of objects on screen in later gameplay.. tho it does glitch out after a certain point I've heard... and seen on YouTube.
