Nice Geometry Wars port but could be better!
This is a fun shooter that at first glance looks to be a perfect port of the xbox 360 arcade game. It features very similar graphics and sound to the 360(I would say almost identical!).
Geometry Wars is a shooter in which you must destroy various polygonal objects that appear in large numbers via quick reflexes and strategy. The game features several modes such as Deadline, evolved and Pacifism. Pacifism is my favourite mode because instead of shooting to kill ememies you must instead use stealth, and mobility to avoid them.
Now for the main negative...the controls. Unlike the xbox 360 version this version controls via "virtual" thumb sticks...hence the "touch". Unfortunately, this is problematic as you never feel in control and it just feels sluggish. Also if you have large hands then your thumbs can block some of the screen, resulting in a quick death :(. This does hamper the enjoyability of the game which is why I rated it a 5. If the controls were better it would be a 8/10.
Overall this game is okay, but not a replacement for the superior 360 version.
