Product Description

Product Description

The original version of 2D shoot ‘em-up Geometry Wars is best known as an Xbox Live Arcade downloadable game, so you might assume this is just a quick cash-in on the name. That’s not the case at all. The basics are still the same--clear the level of geometric enemies for the glory of a high score--but Geometry Wars: Galaxies re-invents of the concept to suit the Wii remote and to expand the game’s scope. An upgradeable, computerised ally helps you take on enemies of all shapes and sizes.

HARRISON DENT

Reviews aren't my "thing" but as this has yet to receive any feedback, I thought I would offer some food for thought...

Now that I've had it for a few days or so GWG has become one of my top five favourite Wii games.

It's nice that they've included the XBox Live original, which gives one a good way to compare how much more there really is to this new title. There is a great deal of variety with different challenges to be had within the fifty-eight stages (sixty-five if you also own the DS version). Some of them can vary quite a bit.

For example, there's one that has a gravity well in the center of the stage which affects both the enemy drones and your own movement. Another has waves of drones coming from the outer bounds of the arena crossing from one side to the other; the trick is that as the stage progresses you'll eventually have four waves (or more) crossing from all sides at the same time, making it quite difficult to survive. Others have mine layers, random moving blocks through which only the enemies can pass, and narrow tunnels which make one's life tough. Some stages will give the player only one life and no bombs.

It's nice that each type of drone has its own specific spawn sound. That way one can easily discern what one needs to look out for. The player's helper drone is quite ... err ... helpful, but even it can't save you from poor movement choices. It takes a bit of playing to level it up to make it really useful, though.

As far as controls are concerned, I much prefer IR over classic controller. Surprisingly, the IR controls feel a whole lot more natural and comfortable to me, and they don't limit me to only angle shots.

This game looks fairly simple, and it is. There isn't super 3D animation etc. I was a tad bit disappointed when I first started playing. However, several days on, all I can think of is 'just having another go...'

The overwhelming amount of things going on simultaneously is outrageous, however the control system allows you to accomplish the impossible. If you like old school gameplay, with tarted up graphics then this is a winner. - Just don;t knock me off the Internet rankings board.

Well where do I start?
Well I could start off by telling you how much of a frustratingly addictive game this is, when you 1st start playing, you look at all the galaxies that are available to you, and think to yourself, this is gonna be a breeze, well guess what, it aint.
Without going into too much detail, and if you aint a PGR fan and haven't seen this game before, it is a sort of play on 80's games like Asteroids and Robotron, i.e a space ship that fires and moves in a full 360 deg. on a grid. You basically have to blast away at everything, and collect GEOMS, which are the Galactic currency.
With the Geoms, you can upgrade your drone ship which helps you in your quest, or you can unlock other Galaxies.
What I find so good about this game is the fact that it is going back to basics in a way, it has a distinct 80's feel about it, (vectrex anyone?)but with a few twists, and it is just sooo addictive.
When I 1st saw this game advertised, I thought it was gonna be like an xbox live rip off, but the programmers have added a lot to the original concept, which keeps ya coming back.
Also a friend bought the DS version which is also a really good game, and can be linked upto the Wii version to download an extra galaxy onto both versions, which I know is not much, but at least the programmers did actually bother to add that to both the games.
Also there has been added support for the Nintendo classic controller for all Xbox purists out there, (who I know are gonna moan about the classic controllers thumbsticks being too close together, myself included lol).

Its a bit harder to control than on a PC, especially with a classic controller. Its like the analog sticks are moving in steps which effectively defy their purpose. But, its solid fun using wii mote + nunchuck.

Don't be fooled by the deceiving screen shots. This is a HIGHLY fun and addictive shooter. Tons of action, colorful and very addictive. Even if the graphics are simple that doesn't detract at all of one of the best (if not THE BEST) Wii 2D shooters. If you can grab it at a bargain don't miss it.

Hint: for a very frantic fun try Claduo and Maesis on Beta with the collect drone. Amazing! Great way to collect geoms and huge scores.

Best with the Nintendo Wii Classic Controller Pro.

I always was meant to buy this game to add to my Wii collection but I always forgot about it in the end. Bought the game now though and it's just amazing although tricky at times you might need a spare controller if you rage real bad lol. No on-line leader-boards now of course as WFC has been discontinued however it has a pretty decent single player campaign that should make you want to go back for more...and more....and more....and more.
