Evil Avatar: Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 Review

I looked back at my articles covering the Xbox 360 launch to dig up any info I said about the first Geometry Wars. Everytime I mentioned the game I couldn't recommend it enough. I'll be up front about it now for the sequel, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2, I think the same exact thing.

After almost three years the true sequel to the best game on Xbox Live Arcade has finally hit, and even though we've seen similar titles in Geometry Wars: Galaxies on the Wii and DS, there's nothing quite like playing the grid in glorious hi-definition. Everything about the new game is an improvement; from the menu system with integrated leaderboards, to the five new game modes, to the local multiplayer and co-op. There's an incredible value here at $10, especially considering the retail release of Galaxies was a good $20-$30 more!

The Good:

* Gorgeous 1080p visuals
* Fast, simple and addictive gameplay
* Variety of gameplay modes
* Awesome leaderboard system

The Bad:

* No online multiplayer

The Ugly:

* The amount of time you'll spend addicted to this.

"There's an incredible value here at $10, especially considering the retail release of Galaxies was a good $20-$30 more!"

They forgot to say that there are tens of different planets in Galaxies, along with like 7 different systems, all of which have their own online ranking system, and drones. I think that makes up for the difference in price...

What I don't understand is how the beautiful Wii adaption of Geometry Wars, with AMAZING controls barely creates a ripple in the gaming community, and yet the more beautiful, (I assume) just as fun, clunkier-controlled 360 version is the hot topic. Hrm.
