         Wii brings XBox Live title to life!!!!!!!!!!

        I can honestly say i've never played this game until today. great price attracted me and also the visuals and the totally mad game play keep blasting everything in sight to a techno track.....cool. You get the original xbox game and the SUPER ENHANCED Wii version GALAXIES. This is by far he best option. Use the Wii remote to guide your crafts laser and blast in all directions super fast!!! The addition of the droid is cool, its skills can be upgraded to different effects. laser, sniper, defend, barge....etc
        the enemies explode in colour as the screen bends and warps with your laser fire. the visuals are excellent for such a basic game. Pick up the gnomes (currency) when each enemy dies different values for different enemies. It's vital to boost your war chest to buy upgrades or open other galaxies.
        If anyone remembers Jeff Minters-Attack Of The Mutant Camels on the N64. This game is just as crazy!
        Online is high score leaderboards only. 2 player mode available offline.
        This is a great addition to your collection at a great price.
        Very addictive, however some people may get bored of it like Foverever Blue. Both excellent games to play with no real conclusion.
        Buy, buy, buy!!!!!!

         A Sleeping Giant! Buy. This. Game.

        Easily overlooked, maybe even dismissed as a port of an Xbox Live Arcade game, Geometry Wars is worth every single penny.

        What you have is a fast and furious shoot 'em up akin to Asteroids meets Galaxian. The variety of enemies to shoots, level design, steep learning curve with consistant unlockables to improve your ability means that you will lose hours to this game.

        Basic concept is that you are in a wall 2D part of space with enemies constantly spawning and attacking you. You need to shoot them down and avoid collisions to survive. When you shoot an enemy they drop a geom which is both currency to unlock sections of the game and a multiplier for your score. You will need to collect up to 150 of them to help boost your score to the dizzying heights needed to gain a Bronze, Silver or Gold Medal and progress through the game. However, if you die, you lose your Multiplier and go back to 1x and have to build up again.

        The wiimote + Nunchuck interface lends itself well to the game and feels very natural so do not fear that a lack of dual analogue sticks is going to affect gameplay.

        2 player coop mode is a fast and furious team effort, sharing lives and smart bombs (which you will need when the going gets tough) whilst the competitive games have you fighting to collect geoms and get the higher score before the level becomes too tough to survive.

        I'm not sure I can praise this game highly enough. In a sea of games relying on top notch graphics and Hi res Plasma screens it is nice to know that there are still games developers out there who want to make their games playable and FUN, not to mention a challenge with a long lifespan.

        BUY THIS GAME IF YOU HAVE A WII.

        (Additional: The DS version is the exact same game. Having both versions will unlock certain new levels and allow you to sync them together over WiFi seemlessly, but most people will not need to own both copies)

         This game is beautiful!!!

        For those of you that have an Xbox and been playing this game from xboxlive for £5, you might think Nintendo is stitching you up asking £20 for what is a £5 game. But not everyone has an XBox and certainly not many can afford multiple consoles, and for £20, this game is definitely worth every penny.
        Basically, this is a purist's shoot'em up game, a frantic shoot'em up at that. You shoot what comes at you, you shoot some more, and there are more things to shoot. there are different planets you can unlock by picking up the geoms left behind by the enemies you've blown up. the only gripe I have with this game is that, it moves so fast, sometimes when enemies pops up behind you, you don't really have time to dodge it before you're killed, but for a £20 game, you'll be able to look beyond that and welcome this game with open arms.

         Love this game, very addictive!!!

        I loved this game on the XBOX 360, so how does the Wii version fair?.... Well in a word its brilliant, loads of new shapes with new characteristics, the 'Wii mote' and 'Nunchuk' are a perfect addition.
        I read in a review the game suffers slow down!, there is none believe me I have been in some frentic levels and this is not the case, the DS version on the other-hand has plenty of slow down though unfortunately.
        It is everybit as fast paced as Retro Evolved (which is also included, and can be sent via wifi to 'Download Play' on your DS without the need of the DS version).
        The only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 is because one niggle the save file cannot be transfered to the SD memory card for backup it will not allow copies of the save file to be made.
        If you get the DS version u can unlock an extra planet by wifi link between the two games although there is enough to see and do without this.
        This is a fast paced pick up and play game with a 2 player option, that is very addictive, and you get a drone with various abilities to accompany you, which levels up with new power-ups (ranging from a shield to a turret ect...).
