    It's fast, it's furious, it will absorb you utterly and it costs a mere 800 gamer points, so you're onto a real winner with this one!
  2. Flawless control, sleep-stealing gameplay ... there's just no reason to skip out on this perfect, mutated storm.
  3. Although you’d have to be a real top-down blaster fan to own Geometry Wars and Mutant Storm Reloaded, it would be hard to pick between the two. Mutant Storm Reloaded is possible a bit more well-rounded, although it’s hard to argue with Geometry Wars’ TRON-like setting.
  4. A fine blaster. [Issue#23, p.97]

    Pom Pom has done an exceptional job at taking a simple concept and making it both beautiful to view and a pleasure to listen to. The graphics are fluid, organic, and distinct.
  6. Visually the game has a gelled look to it, with very balloony environments, that are pretty unique. The only bad thing about Mutant Storm is that it is 800 points, or ten bucks when a slightly better and similar game, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved is 400 points, or five bucks.
  7. Not only does it feature addictively simple pick up and play gameplay, but the stage-oriented design allows players to either go through a few stages or a few playthroughs at time.
