With the Xbox 360 came the Xbox Live Marketplace, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved is one the games featured on the Marketplace. In Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved you place as what looks like a space ship. You are inside a board and shapes come flying at you, if a shape touches you you lose a life. To defend yourself you can fire an infinite ammo machine gun. The concept seems simple but it becomes very addictive once you try it. The gameplay is fairly simple yet quite interesting, it uses the two analog stick one for control one for fire this gives you 360 degree control of your machine gun. The graphics look stunning, the effects such as how the background warps for the spray of sparks when you destroy and enemy captivate you and just make you think: Wow. The sound really adds to the experience and it necessary to the gameplay as it gives cues to enemies. The replay value of this game is very high, it is a game you can just pick up and play for a long time. This game is easily the best marketplace game as it is the cheapest being only about $5 while still being the most enjoyable of the games I have played. The game keeps throwing hordes of enemies and it is difficult to get tired of this game. If you have some Microsoft Points and you want a great game this should definitely be your choice, if you don't believe me you can download the free trial.
