    Great fun if you're a fan of old school shoot-em-ups and essential if you like to maintain a balanced collection of games since there's nothing else like it for the Wii right now. On the down side the two player mode doesn't work particularly well and once you've supersized all the drones there's little variation. In summary lots of fun but lacking in depth Great fun if you're a fan of old school shoot-em-ups and essential if you like to maintain a balanced collection of games since there's nothing else like it for the Wii right now.

    I was wondering why it was so popular so I picked up a copy knowing nothing about it. I found it really entertaining at first, but then realized that the gameplay does not change at all. What you see is what you get. If you're not enthralled in the first 5 minutes you're done for. Not great for replay, but, not terrible.

    If you like retro-style gameplay, or are hungry for shooters, or just want something that you can pop in for a few minutes at a time, it's just perfect. [Jan 2008, p.60]
  3. Geometry Wars Galaxies is an excellent transition from old to new with a bevy of extras that will keep fans engaged for a long time.
