Geometry Wars: Galaxies, the sequel to what was originally a bonus-game in an Xbox title, has been hailed as immensely entertaining. Joe Bennet played the DS version of the game. What does he think about this title? Read the review and find out.
Despite all the negativity mentioned, Geometry Wars Galaxies is still one of the best DS games available, and certainly the best shoot-em-up on the handheld. Its transition from 360 to DS has lost very little (and gained much more) and it comes highly recommended as a must-have purchase. The negatives will annoy some more than others, the slowdown and hand-cramp certainly got on my nerves after a few hours play, but it still didn’t stop me putting in more hours than I needed to in order to review the game. In the space of only a few days, I’ve amassed a total of 17 hours playtime, much more than was required for the review. I’d still out of choice play the 360 version, but I can’t take the 360 with me on the bus or play it on the sofa whilst the wife is watching an episode of Eastenders.
