Geometry Wars: Galaxies
Geometry Wars was and still is one of the best titles on Xbox LIVE, this entry in the series is not a port, but instead a huge step forward for the new series. The game boasts 60 levels where you control your ship (and its drone ship) through wave after wave of enemies, everything is made up of brightly colored geometric shapes and the explosions and effects will light up your screen like the 4th of July (or Canada Day if you are from the great white north). You can either use the D-pad to move and shoot with the face buttons (yuck) or use the surprisingly effective stylus based shooting (tap where you want to shoot), either way it is playable, but obviously stylus is better. Geometry Wars: Galaxies also features a robust local and online multiplayer suite that will keep you entertained for a long time, this game is available right now.
Why Buy it? Geometry Wars is an addictive and fun game, Galaxies is 60 times the fun with all the extra levels, different level variants (Black holes, waves and more) to be found and new enemies to encounter. The graphics, while not revolutionary, are bright and vibrant and really wow you when the action is at its heaviest. The icing on the cake for this game is the inclusion of DS download mode so you and a friend can blast the vile geoms together through the original Retro Evolved game and online multiplayer against DS owners around the world. All in all this is a great game alone, with a friend or online and is be a great addition to the DS library.
