    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. As addictive as crack and as hallucinogenic as LSD, you might need some rehab after a few weeks of Mutant Storm Reloaded.
  3. Flawless control, sleep-stealing gameplay ... there's just no reason to skip out on this perfect, mutated storm.
  4. If you're wondering which shooter to pick out of the batch, I'd say download the demos and give them all a run. Mutant Storm Reloaded is the most expensive, but also has the most content in modes, and customization.
  5. 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.
  6. Trying to unlock the various difficulties is extremely challenging and can cause frustration for those prone to getting worked up over games. The loading is a little annoying at times but overall doesn’t hamper a stylish yet psychedelic experience that is full of shooting and lots more shooting.
  7. All round, Mutant Storm Reloaded is the kind of sympathetic update that reminds us exactly why gamers gets so foamed up about supposedly outdated concepts. Sometimes things just work, and always will.

    It’s 800 Microsoft Points, which is quite a bit when you consider that you could buy two similar games, Geometry Wars and Robotron, for the same price. However, in my opinion, this is the superior title, for its psychadelic appearance and varied gameplay.
  9. Addictive, challenging and more fun than a game deserves to be. It may not beat Geometry Wars for sheer difficulty but with a two-player gaming mode it has got something that little bit extra up its jet engines.

    A fine blaster. [Issue#23, p.97]
  11. Wildly addictive, and only the best players will be able to earn the highest-coloured belts.

    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.
