"The competitive modes even go so far as to sprinkle power-ups into the mix - collecting a floating star can temporarily beef up your weapon, or attract all on-screen Geoms to your ship, or freeze your opponents in place. Players can't shoot eachother, but the mad scramble for Geoms and points is plenty of fun, with quick on-screen prompts signalling who has taken the lead. Also, since the game is solely based on score, if the player in the lead loses all lives before the others, the game turns into a "bottom of the ninth" bid for survival for the remaining players, who need only exceed the top score in order to emerge victorious."
"Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 is a masterpiece of twitchy arcade madness. The controls are still dead-on, the gameplay is twice as frantic, and there's enough game modes for competitive shmup fans to stay at eachother's throats for hours on end. I fully recommend an immediate purchase."
