I predicted on Usenet that GWE2 was likely to only be half the game Geometry Wars: Galaxies on the Wii was. And, having bought it, I was pretty much right.
But that doesn’t mean it’s bad. Not in the slightest – it’s still amazing. It only had 6 “levels” (or rather, modes of play), but they’re more varied in rules than those in Galaxies.
This evening’s play was supposed to be a quick go to see how it plays. An hour later, I’d unlocked all 6 modes, and, most importantly, whipped all of Something Witty’s scores.
