One title that really stood out to me as an Xbox Live Arcade game that made challenging your friends fun was Geometry Wars. It’s a pure top down shooter that encourages you to rack up an insane score. Feeling like a classic arcade game, you could easily check the leader boards. I battled it out for a long time against my friend on the original. Every time I logged in, I’d check to see if he’d beat my score and I’d up the ante. Geometry Wars 3 is available across PC, Playstation 3 and 4, as well as Xbox 360 and One.
The sheer enjoyment of besting my friend aside, Geometry Wars is just pure fun. The sequel added even more modes, and now Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions takes the game into a Super Mario Galaxy sort of orbiting the surface of a 3D plane. It really looks to be a game changer! Which says a lot, considering adding new content to the series does feel like a tough challenge. I’m thrilled to see what is in store though. Read on for the trailer and see for yourself!
Check that out! Isn’t that wild? Apparently classic modes return as well in seemingly their original form with revamped graphics! I loved pacifism where you just break through gates to destroy enemies perusing your craft.
