July 31, 2008 - Excellent - The original Retro Evolved was a great early example of how much fun XBLA could be, and Retro Evolved 2 is a very clear picture of where the service stands now: It's not sure where it wants to go, but it's always, always entertaining.
July 30, 2008 - Excellent - The omission of online play aside, Geometry Wars 2 is everything you hoped it would be. It deftly builds on a simple framework without overloading it, and even finds room to make the core experience more varied and accessible to everyone.
July 31, 2008 - Excellent - As we were fans of the last game, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 needed to be exceptional to pull us away, and we're ecstatic that Bizarre Creations exceeded our expectations.
July 31, 2008 - Excellent - At only 800 MS points, [Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2] is not only a great value but also one of the best games on XBLA.
August 15, 2008 - Excellent - Retro Evolved 2 is a cacophony of light and sound to any spectator, but a zen-like trance for the player.
July 30, 2008 - Excellent - Even if you've grown tired of the seemingly endless cavalcade of dual-joystick shooters that Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved's success spawned on Xbox Live Arcade, the sequel is well-worth its $10 price tag.
July 30, 2008 - Excellent - If you love Geometry Wars you'll love this. If you've never played Geometry Wars before then now is a perfect time to do so.
July 30, 2008 - Good - 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.
