Quoted from Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 Reviews:Check out these quotes from Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 reviews & previews
"Rather than being tucked behind an option in the menu, leaderboards are plastered everywhere. Each game mode displays a friend leaderboard beside its name, teasing you with scores and daring you to return."
"Retro Evolved 2 is a shockingly good sequel. The only problem is the lack of an online multiplayer mode. Everything else on display here is a drastic improvement over the original. Every new mode is extremely fun to play and requires a totally different play style to master."
"Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 is a solid sequel. Three of the six modes are great fun, with the other three being at least serviceable. But this is a game and a series that is showing its age. These modes are little more than rules alterations to the same thing we've been playing for years (yes, even before there was an Xbox 360). With so many great 2D shooters out or on the horizon, it's time for Bizarre to step up its game and take Geometry Wars to the next level. This plays more like a greatest hits offering than a true sequel. But hey, it is Geometry Wars -- and Geometry Wars is fun. Worth $10? Definitely. The best thing since sliced banana bread? Not so much."
"If you've played the previous titles then you've probably already purchased Retro Evolved 2. It doesn't offer anything new, but a fresh variation on what's already been seen. It's as old school as games come and that's meant as a compliment. The achievements (which are actually achievable) round off a superb package. It's simplistic gaming with an addictive edge. A game for everyone, which is well worth your precious Microsoft Points."
"For fans of Geometry Wars, this game is a must own. It brings so much new to the table and makes a game that was hard to put down in the first place even harder. It really is the little game that could, and Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 continues to fly the XBLA flag proudly. Go download this game now."
