    Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions' Adventure Mode is the best way to play Geometry Wars. Engaging, addictive, hard to master. If you love Geometry Wars, you can't miss this entry in the series.

    Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is a great new entry in the series. It offers plenty of things for all players, as the Adventure mode draws in new fans, the Classic mode appeals to veterans, and the leaderboards manage to fuel their competitive natures.

    Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is a near perfect game let down only by the demanding mission padding and a soundtrack that represents a slight step backwards from its predecessors.

    Gorgeous, compulsive shooting action with incredible depth, but the score battles can be mismatched. [Feb 2015, p.76]

    Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is not an improvement of the perfect game we know so well. But, it is the only way to experience the genius that this twin-stick-shooter is on modern platforms.

    An enjoyable entry in the Geometry Wars franchise that manages to add new life into the series, but keeps fans happy with returning classics.

    Generous and hypnotic, Geometry Wars takes on a new dimension with superb graphics, 3D levels and new multiplayer modes. Too bad, however, that the Adventure mode is so difficult and that the quality of the soundtrack is not as good as we hoped.

    There is nothing revolutionary here with the mechanics but it happens to be the best twin stick shooter I have ever played. Controls,There is nothing revolutionary here with the mechanics but it happens to be the best twin stick shooter I have ever played. Controls, gameplay and graphics are all excellent. Mixes things up a lot in adventure mode and really keeps you wanted to progress. Only knock would be that it could use more music tracks as after hours of playing you really don't want to hear the songs anymore. Expand

The difficulty ramps up fairly quick, not just in the levels themselves but in the adventure mode progression as well. Multiple player modes give a nice bit of diversity. You can level up two different types of abilities: a gameplay-enhancing mechanic and various types of bombs. You start with only 1 option but the rest unlock as you beat more bosses. The controls are simple yet amazingly fluid. Stiff controls just kill a twin stick shooter, and this doesn't have any of that. Highly recommended for any age and this game does wonders for developing your reaction time. Expand

I already gave this game a ten because it has great graphics, incredible gameplay and a banging soundtrack and superb effects to boot. They have given us twice the game, now, for free. New modes, eight new enemies, more challenge, a different art style in hard mode, an extra drone and special. Incredible that we get all of this for free and it works as if it had been there all along.
    If there is one developer to support, surely one that gives so much, deserves our support?

Arenas can be spherical, cubes, peanut-shaped, and more, but all feel extremely cramped given the volume of enemies coming at you. It feels like the devs realize how tough the game is, since you don't lose your score multiplier by dying, firepower boosts are only obtained through destroying a specific enemy set, and many challenges are unlimited life with a time limit.

    The classic game is included, and the core gameplay is still excellent, but this feels a bit more in the hardcore camp than usual.
