This game is fast paced eye candy for the arcade shooter fan in all of us.

Geometry Wars Galaxies shows that you don't have to use pixel shaders and bloom lighting effects to make a fun game.

Galaxies is simple - destroy everything that moves and acquire score multipliers after you've destroyed the moving things to enhance your score. In this version of the game you have a companion polygon that assists you in destroying rival polygons. It can attack, defend, gather score multipliers, etc.

So far I only have positive things to say about the game. The particle effects are awesome, as is the space-time grid distortion. This is definitely one of the better games on the Wii.
