Official game site

John Justen: It’s well done and I enjoy it but I don’t really see what all the fuss is about. We’ve all played Asteroids before.

Polyphonic: My favorite game of 2008. Does that mean it’s the best? Probably not. I’m sure there are bigger, better games out there to be played, but none of those that I played provided the immediate satisfaction of this game. Bizarre took everything that was great about GW1 and improved it, added five new game modes (which all are outstanding in their own ways, improved the graphics, and put all your friends’ infuriatingly high scores on the launch screen. And as with most of the best arcade-style games, this game has infinite replayability and is hard as shit. I will play this game forever.

Mitch Krpata: I got so addicted to this game that I had to uninstall it before my marriage suffered.

Critical reception

JeffLevine: Pacifism Mode + high score competition made this one for me.

JimD: Jeff has sucked the fun out of Geometry Wars 2 for me, by racking up a bunch of scores I’ll never even come close to beating, all within the first 24 hours. Seven million plus in evolved? Twelve plus in sequence?? Dude! Boo!
