    Developer Strawdog Studios was clearly aiming for a game that is easy to pick up and play, but in the end made a game that is equally easy to simply walk away from.
  2. GEON is a simple puzzle game that's more generic than its title would lead you to believe.
  3. The core process of gathering up pellets and delivering them to the goal simply isn't as fun as it should be. For a game built upon this crucial cornerstone, no matter how many ideas are added on top of it, the whole construction remains unstable and, soon enough, un-enjoyable.
  4. The biggest problem is that it just lacks the single-player appeal of a Pac-man, as well as the multiplayer depth and longevity of a game like Bomberman.
  5. Geon: Emotions is a pretty cute and easy to learn puzzle game on Xbox Live but nothing spectacular or addicting.
  6. The problem with GEON: emotions is that it's over far too quickly. Unless you are trying to get gold in every time trial, chances are you're going to complete the game in a matter of hours. Worse yet, the game has a tendency of getting a little repetitive the more you play it.

    Otherwise, expect to get bored rather quickly with collecting spilled spheres and waiting for floating cube-movers. [Dec 2007, p.66]

    An attractive barfly that never really engages. [Dec 2007, p.108]
  9. It’s a fresh idea with decent graphics and gameplay. You won’t mistake it for a big-budget shooter or elaborate adventure game, but that isn’t what it was aiming to be either.

    Here's a list of things that this is less interesting than: rubber gloves, garden peas, Spam and watching paint dry (of course). [Issue 26, p.117]
  11. Given the time and I think folks could come to appreciate this quirky Xbox Live Arcade title … it’s unfortunate that being released so close to Halo 3 many have chosen to pass on it.

    Innovative, pretty, interesting at first glance... but ultimately: boring, boring, boring. [Oct 2007, p.96]

The object of the game is to collect geons then spin to the opposite parallel side of the map to 'cash' them in. You race against one other opponent to collect as many geons as possible to see who finishes first. There are powerups that enable you to stop your opponent - hitting them makes them lose their geons. The game is colourful and vibrant. Everything Geon: Emotions sets out to do achieves it however I feel as if the game gets a bit too repetitive after a short time, you can only collect so many geons. Full Review »
