That's what a game is meant to be, rapidly understandable, fun at will, and which progress with your skill. Before, I played Counter Strike in deathmatch to work things off , but GW is much more fun and soon you start, it allows you to focus on something else, there's absolutely no way to be passive. The gameplay is really well done and balanced, simplistic and complex. I use to compare it to Tetris, because of the simplicity and fun. Cheers!

This is what Happens when you mix Pure fun and Hype into one Game. Easy to pick up, Can kill boredom in seconds and the soundtrack (The one song) never gets old, I constantly find myself bobbing up and down to the beat while playing. An easy 9/10, Its so cheap just buy it.

This is one of my favorite games of all time. Very addictive, fast, and flashy also the best twin stick shooter. If you're a fan of smash tv then this is a must have. I hope the other Geometry Wars games get on steam one day.
As good as any twin stick arcade shooter can get for PC. Some weird mechanics, though.
You can tell that the main platform for this game was obviously a console, but that doesn't mean it's immediately bad. *EDIT:* You can change the way you shoot, and the default (sorta) emulates a joystick. The default is that you move your mouse in the direction you want to shoot, and the player sprite shoots there. It will continue to shoot there until you move your mouse again in any other direction. To change the way you shoot, you go to help and settings > controls > mouse and then you can change from default to cursur mode, where your character will forever shoot at your cursur, and you move your cursur separate from the player. Be sure to turn off auto shoot though! You can shoot with either space or left click unless you change it to right click, and the green enemies are best hit when you tap fire. You can of course use the arrows to shoot, but that limits you to only being able to shoot in 8 directions, meaning you'll have to move to get a good shot as well.
I have a 1440p monitor, and the game fully supported it. I was surprised, given it started the game up in 2003 mode (640x480). It has a progressive difficulty, but the levels don't change, meaning the spawn sequence is typically more or less the same (unless there is more but I just couldn't find it).
This was an impulse purchase for the Summer Steam Sale, and I don't think it's worth more than a couple of dollars, but it's kinda entertaining when you're sick of all of the other games in your library. You get what you pay for as long its on some sort of sale.
this game is the definition of the 360 for me at a time where everything was great on that thing. i have it on 360, on anohter steam account and on this one. it´s just a great game and highly recommended. it´s a timeless little gem.

This is an excellent game, for such a low price. I may have only played a few hours of it, but I got many more on the original DS release. You could have 10 friends watch you play it, and it wouldn't lose a frame. Constant 60fps on a low performing computer, combined with bright colours and a great way to prove your reflexes, there really is nothing bad about this game. 1000/10 for such the low price that it is.
