  1. Excellent graphics, simple controls, no tilt and just a really fun game, Super Stardust HD is the must have game for PSN.

    So is Super Stardust HD better than "Geometry Wars"? That is something that will likely come down to personal preference. I happen to much prefer Super Stardust for its diversity of gameplay -- multiple weapons, multiple stages, multiple ways to build up score -- and its better graphical and aural presentation.
  3. SSHD is a great package - it's complete, timely, expertly produced and at just £4.99 it's absolutely essential for any shooter fan.
  4. In every other respect, Super Stardust HD is an absolute star, the jewel in the crown of the PlayStation Store and quite possibly the best purists' shooter to appear on console since the legendary Geometry Wars.
  5. 87
    Addictively satisfying mechanics, great visuals and tactical yet simplistic design. In truth, and I say this as a heavy duty "Geometry Wars" player myself, Super Stardust HD is not only just as good as Bizarre Creation's it's in many ways better.
  6. Graphically, as PSN games go, Super Stardust HD is superb, and it nicely combines the neon glow of Geometry Wars with the detailed retro pixel work of the first Stardust. The difficulty level is spot on, providing a challenge without causing a headache.
  7. If you have room in your heart for yet another Robotron clone, Super Stardust HD is a good addition to this well-worn genre.

I put off buying it for the longest time because I expected it to be a bad attempt at geometry wars but it turns out it's even better. Also this is the only game I've tried so far that's worth playing in 3d, it still kills my eyes but it's really fun. Expand

    What a great game, it brings back the FUN factor which some of the new realistic games lack.

Its a game you can just pick up and play when you've got a spare few minutes. For the price its an absolute BLAST! Expand

    Awesome in 3D! The whole planet and all objects are in 3D and it looks superb, especially the asteroids and explosions. The 3D patch/update isAwesome in 3D! The whole planet and all objects are in 3D and it looks superb, especially the asteroids and explosions. The 3D patch/update is free - you've gotta love that! The only catch: it's maxed at 720p (Sony's 3D requirement) but I'm sure would also have perfect 60fps in 1080p. With Sony granting an exception for GT5 with 1080p 3D let's hope they relax the rules a bit for other games with high frame rates too. Expand

    For $10, this game is AWESOME!!! Lots of fun, lots of challenge, and lots of pretty explosions and graphics. I love downloadable titles For $10, this game is AWESOME!!! Lots of fun, lots of challenge, and lots of pretty explosions and graphics. I love downloadable titles because with a few dollars I can buy original games that are almost infinitely better than $60 full games like The Godfather or The Darkness. Definitely buy this game and play it like crazy. Expand

    Playable with a friend but it is personally not motivational enough for me to play solo.
