Boomtown: "The importance of Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved cannot be overstated. What started life as an in-game diversion in Project Gotham Racing 2 became the standout game for the launch of Xbox Live Arcade, and arguably for the 360 as a whole. Since then it has maintained its position as one of the best selling games on XBLA, and prompted the rebirth of the twin-stick shooter genre. It was an exercise in frenetic high score chasing – a slice of arcade heaven – and all anyone could have wanted from it was more. Thankfully Bizarre Creations has obliged, first with Waves in PGR4, then with the standard Galaxies for Wii and DS. And now, after three years Geometry Wars has finally returned to XBLA in the shape of Retro Evolved 2, and more is precisely what it delivers."
