If you're a gamer, no doubt you've heard of Geometry Wars. A little extra found in an x-box racing game, it later found it's way onto the Live Arcade. Now, Nintendo fans get there chance at the title.
The game is simple: you are a little ship with a powerful gun. Blast the enemy, get points and geoms, advance, blast some more. Simple, but fun. You also have one of several drones that hover around you and can be setup to do several different things. By doing better in different levels, you can gain xp for the little drones so they can become better attackers or defenders or ext.
The game is high on style and looks beautiful. Yet, sometimes, all the color spray can get in the way, and one can get lost easily.
Other features of the game include an online leaderboard, which seems to be popular with a number of recent Wii titles, and special functions with your DS. You can send over a demo of the DS version, or, if you already have the DS version, you can unlock one special galaxy.
In most aspects, I find this game to be a blast. It takes care of the usual simple to play, hard to master and lots of fun. But, my one real issue is this: 40$.
While the game has lots of gameplay, it's most of the same, over and over. While it was nice of them to knock off 10$, This game only really seems worth it at more 30$. The game is great and a lot of fun, but when you try it, you can feel that with 40$, you almost wish they could have thrown the DS version in the box for free. Now that would be a deal!
As it stands, it is a good game that great for a rent, but only perfect for a buy when the price drops in the future. Keeps your eyes on it.

The Wii has taken this game to the next level. If you liked the original for the XBOX360, you will cetainly enjoy this action-packed shooter. It is insane, and has plenty of replay value in my opinion. Decent graphics, too! Game-on!
