One of the best XBOX 360 launch titles, and I'm not just talking about for the arcade.

User Rating: 10 | Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved X360
You'll be looking in the marketplace for some XBOX Live Arcade games, and you'll see Geometry Wars, first thing you'll think, wow, someone made some stupid math game, how stupid.....this is not the case. Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved is a shooter in which you control a space ship, and shoot geometric shapes, flies, and snakes. There are also black holes which suck things in once you shoot them, and eventually explode if left untamed. You have multipliers that you get for killing so many things, that will help your score increase fast. You have bombs that will clear the entire screen. There are two types of guns that are addons, the basic gun is a two shooter, the first addon is a triple speed shooter, and the other is a 5 shooter. The gameplay starts out slow, but quickly grows hexic.

The graphics in the game are stunning, and dare I say that this is the game with the best special effects ever. They are just that good. The sound is basic gun firing, and a techno beat, very easy on the ears.

In addition to the Evolved game, you get the Retro game which is the original game from the garage in Project Gotham Racing 2. It is stale compared to the new and imrpoved version. In short, this game has a simple yet awesome gameplay, good graphics, yet once again simple, and good sound, yet simple. This is a great example where simplicity can spawn an amazing game. The game has some hard achievements to unlock, and you'll probaly be playing this game for a long time. The games concept is simple to grasp, yet it is hard to perfect. This is the must have game in the XBOX Live Arcade.
