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.Read more ›
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.
