Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Higher production values
The latest entry into the Geometry Wars series and the production values are pretty nice. Graphics in the game are the best they have been with newly designed levels that work in the third dimension. Overall, there is quite a lot of polish to the titles which shows over its previous endeavours.
Pro Newly added feature of using companions
Not present in earlier titles, the player can now equip drones to follow their main ship around. These drones are used to help during levels, depending on what type of support each drone offers. Some will help with shooting, others can help collect objects. Of course it is up to the player to choose what kind of support they want. Overall this is a helpful mechanic that is a completely new feature in the series.
Con Chasing high scores can get tiring
While there are some new additional game modes in this third iteration of the series, the same "chase the high score" element is present and is still the main focus of the game. While not entirely bad in and of itself (chasing high scores), it can wear thin pretty quickly.
Con Can be really difficult
Playing on harder difficulties or playing the boss levels can be trials in frustration as the game can be quite difficult. This may wear thing on the player if they do not like the challenge or the frustration.
