Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 Trailer

I have to say I'm very excited. Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved is still one of the most fun Xbox Live Arcade games, and the colors are very beautiful on a nice display. Many people have commented on how gorgeous it looks. Up to four players on the sequel will be interesting. Here's hoping it plays as well as the first one. I haven't gotten all of the achievements for many games, but I did it for the first Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved, despite some of them providing some intense resistance. If you haven't played the first one, I highly recommend it, and it's rewarding to play it until you're good. Of course, then you go watch videos of the REAL masters playing it, and you hang your head in shame.

Looks pretty cool!

I bought the first one and found it pretty challenging. I stopped playing sometime after I got a high score of 940K and then died... I Was so mad I didn't get that 1 million acheivement! Best I could do after that was around 600k.

I will most likely be buying this one

FYI,

New dashboard update for 360 is comming, check out some of the info here:

http://www.xbox.com/en-US/community/events/e32008/

The console updates, games, arcade games, and the ability to stream netflix movies straight from your netflix account looks really cool!

Also, Final fantasy XIII is comming to Xbox! WOOT WOOT!

I'm also looking forward to the new Portal game. I wonder what new ideas they'll have.

Okay, so I'm having fun with Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2. There are now 6 game modes to be frustrated with instead of just one, so THAT'S GREAT. I've unlocked all of the modes, but actually getting all of the achievements is going to be hard. So far I only have two. But yeah, death is so cruel, and it makes me curse and want to throw the controller every time. I'll have to have people over for multiplayer.

That looks like a fun game. Wish they made it for the PS3. I looked for something similar and found one called.

Super Stardust HD

Basically a modernized version of old school Asteroids with 360' weapon control independent from the flight controls. Different weapons for different rock types and an ever increasing hectic pace, which is exactly what made the old school games so addictive.

Played the free demo for an hour last night and decided I need to buy the full game and at $8.00, you can't go wrong.

I bought that game and agree that it's very fun. I guess it's actually a remake of an old Amiga game. I didn't get very good at it. In fact, my mom got better at it than I did. I didn't have the patience.

ditto to both. I've been enjoying Super Stardust HD for a while, and I excitedly unlocked three of the modes on Geometry Wars 2 last night. It's a great twist on the old one, and while some people knock it for being so different, I am glad for that, because it keeps the old one fun as well. Thumbs up!
