If you like old-school twitch games, you'll love this one! It takes the original Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved (as seen on Xbox Live Arcade) and pumps it up into 60 levels of wave after wave of new enemies, each simple yet cunning in their behavior. There's no story-line or deep meaningful cut-scenes to get in the way, this game is all about hardcore 2D-shooter action! Two player mode is a hell of a lot of fun, although with so much action going in, it can be difficult to see which ship is which. If you have a Nintendo DS, you can also download a mini-version of the DS version over Wi-Fi (a nice bonus). If you're at all in to classic retro-style gaming, and want to just chill for a few hours of shooting mayhem, then give this one a thought, it's a lot of fun!

This game is teh awesome! Very addictive game play takes hours away from your life and turns them into points, power ups, and unlocked galaxies and worlds in this game. WAIT, before you're convinced by the opening sentences of my rad review to buy this fast paced shooter of sweetness I must tell you that you are going to need a Wii Classic Controller. Without a Wii Classic Controller you will die a lot and this game will not be fun but you can always make your friends use the Wiimote and Nunchuck in multiplayer.

So basically this is a game you play for hours straight and even when you want to stop you don't. Geometry Wars Galaxies is like a sequel to the XboxLive Geometry Wars Retro, which is also included with this game.
At first I was blown away by Retro and didn't even want to get into what seemed like a more complex and involved Galaxies (it is but not in any way that makes it complicated but I didn't know and I wanted to play now without thinking and Retro is very addictive). If it was a competition Galaxies would pwn Retro hard because of all the various power ups, levels and enemies added to the magnificence, which is Geometry Wars Galaxies.

With the Wiimote and Nunchuck it sucks, you have a cursor on the screen and you aim that where you want to shoot and fly with the Nunchuck joystick. With the Wii Classic Controller it Rocks, you fly in any direction with the right joystick and simultaneously you shoot in any direction with the left joystick. Which as you can imagine makes for some teh sweet maneuvering as you pwn alien space noobs.

So here's the basics, you've got Geoms that appear when you shoot enemies and you fly near those to pick them up, Geoms are cash for unlocking different Drones, galaxies, and worlds.

This game is quick to pick up and painless to put down. It is a great time-killer and has addictive qualities that make you want to keep playing it. Unlike a lot of games that require you to review the last two hours that you played and also require a substantial time contribution just to make some progress, this allows a person to pick it up, have some fun and put it back down. That being said you'll likely want to keep picking it up again and again because it is genuinely a nice distraction from anyone that has to think for a living. No thinking, just acting, and that is a great thing. If you want something complex and engrossing, sorry keep looking, but if you are just looking for a good time with no strings attached, this is your thing.

Grab a friend and turn off all the lights because this game is awesome! Its very simple but a huge blast to play. If you remember Asteroid Blasters from the 90s that you could play on Windows, this is the same concept but with color and WAY MORE FUN!!!

Pretty much everythign I was going to say has been said already. I love the game and have spent hours playing it. Plan on playing for hours to come. As far as i cam concerned it is one of the best games I have ever played.

It's like Asteroids, Tempest, Galaxian and Robotron all merged together. One goal - survive. You go up against an insane amount of enemies that come at your from all directions. I am amazed at the amount of enemies on screen at one time. It's a total blast. When things get to crazy on screen you can fire off a bomb (start with 3 per level) which will destroy all enemies on screen. You can gain extra lives and bombs at certain scoring levels.

You are not alone as you can equip a drone to help you in battle. You can upgrade and outfit your drone with various behaviors such as Attack, Defend, Collect, etc.

There is no online multiplayer functionality, but two people can play together locally (co-op and versus).

There are online leaderboards for Galaxies. One for individual planets and one for the total score of all the planets. You do have to manually upload your scores which is odd, but it's quick and easy to do so. An automatic WiiConnect24 upload would of been nice. It's quite fun to see how you are ranking with other players.

OK, bad stuff (not much really): The instruction manual is bad, real bad. It doesn't even tell you what you are supposed to do. Sure, you shoot everything on screen, but information on the drones, enemies, multipliers and general strategy would of been nice. You just kind of have to figure it out on your own. The game lacks a sense of polish as far as the menus go leaving it with a sense of emptiness.

I would definitely check this one out if you like old school arcade shooters, but be warned - it's damn challenging and very addictive.
