Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2


Geometry Wars Evolved 2 is a sequel to one of the best selling Xbox Live arcade games, with it's simple gameplay concept and beautifully rendered graphics people spent countless nights trying to get the highest score.? Bizarre Creations just couldn't...

If you haven't bought the first game in the series, you have nothing to worry about here as it's still the same old forumla with a new look.

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 Review for the XBOX360


More fun than the Fourth of July.

Fast-paced, intense, arcade-style gameplay; Entrancing, swirling colors and sound; Six equally excellent modes; Fantastic value at $10; Exciting multiplayer mode; Just. One. More. Game

No online multiplayer

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 is a fantastic way to spend your time and money. It takes everything that made the first game work upon it in every conceivable way and is a prime example of the right way to make a sequel.

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 Review


When the Xbox 360 launched back in November of 2005, the lineup of launch games wasn't exactly stellar. Sure, retail titles like Call of Duty 2 and Condemned saw both critical acclaim and good sales results eventually, but that first day we turned on...

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 comes in with a price of 800 MS points (or $10), and Bizarre Creations deserves your ten bucks. They've added a ton of new stuff to this sequel and really captured what made the original fun and re-expanded on it. With...

Say goodbye to your irises: the original Xbox Live Arcade dual-stick shoot-‘em-up/acid-freak-out has returned.

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 - Xbox Live Arcade


Bleeding eyes come as standard...

An explosion of colour ; Same classic game, refined ; Leaderboards provide longevity

Friends' scores taunting you ; Can overwhelm with chaos ; May just kick your ass

There’s Deadline – a three-minute dash to collect as many Geoms as possible to boost your now-uncapped multiplier to ridiculous heights. King sees you seeking refuge in timed safe-zones with a twist: you can only fire when in a zone and only collect...

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 XBLA - Review


If only all sequels were as improved as Geometry Wars Evolved 2. The game that launched Xbox Live Arcade years ago finally delivers its offspring. While gamers would have been more than happy with just the chance to play co-operatively, the game goes...

In terms of its looks, things are a little more hectic, but maintains the same basic neon graphical flair of the original. The pounding electronic score does get an upgrade, even reacting to your successes and defeats during the sequence levels. The...

Review: Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2


This 2-D shooter is nothing to pass over so don't you pass over either. So, wiggle those thumbsticks, make a wish, and we'll explore this techno-fueled, color filled, HD battlefield.

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2


Three years ago the Xbox360 launched in the Fall 2005, accompanied by very few launch titles. Many weren't very good and did not remain in anyone's minds, or hearts, with the exception of one Xbox Live Arcade game: Geometry Wars. Now after several...

There are six modes in total, with five of them being original concepts. Deadline works like a normal game of Geometry Wars, but you don’t have to worry about dying since you have an infinite amount of lives. Instead you have to worry about the ticking...

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 Game Review - Xbox 360


For those games who have never played Geometry Wars, or any of its subsequent spin-offs (shame on you!), the game is easy enough to pick up and play. There are only two basic functions necessary to complete when playing, shooting and moving. Using...

Addicting, addicting, addicting! Five new single player modes are unique and fun to play; Co-op mode is even more fun

Lack of online multiplayer; if you don't enjoy fun

The first mode available from the start is called Deadline, in which you have unlimited lives but are on a three minute timer. King mode offers a brisk of creativity in the way you destroy enemies due to the fact that you have to be in a certain area...

Second game in the series beats its predecessor in every way, including our best arcade game on Xbox Live honors.
