  1. A great arcade blaster let down by the limits of the DS's controls, but it's still good fun. [Feb 2009, p.83]
  2. Not only a ferocious challenge but a hearty high-score chaser to boot. Derivative, but derives from the best. [Apr 2009, p.71]
  3. With lively graphics and a real pick-up-and-play attitude, XG Blast is an entertainingly addictive game.
  4. 70
    Ultimately, however, a somewhat frustrating difficulty curve, and an overall lack of originality, ensures that there is little reason to recommend this over Geometry Wars: Galaxies, despite its comparable competence.
  5. In conclusion, XG Blast is a good arcade shooter that doesn't try to be too clever on the DS and features some classic gameplay for those that enjoy this genre.
  6. XG Blast! is an entertaining and addictive shooter but Geometry Wars does it better.
  7. As shameless a clone of Geometry Wars as you could ever hope to see. But fairly good fun all the same.
