Desiree (DesireeBee) | 7 comments I've been totally hooked on this game ever since I got my 360 a year ago. I even bought a DS to play the sequel. Finally, a new version for xbla. Don't think I'll be doing much reading after today!

haha...awesome. so what kind of game is it. from what i've seen, is it similar to the old school asteroids?

also, if you want a fun game on xbla you should check out puzzle quest. good mix of bejeweled and an "rpg".

Tom Troutman Im a Geo Wars fiend and the sequel is a must buy. Dont sleep on the Wii version either, it actually trumps the Live version. Dont even get me started on Puzzle Quest. I played it on DS, my cell, and non-stop on XBLA. I just got the expansion for it last week and already dumped a few hours into it.

Shoot me a 360 friend request. Gamertag is xxTUMExx

Desiree (DesireeBee) | 7 comments Hmmmm, a little disappointed with the new Geo Wars. It is part of a category that is typically called "twin stick shooters". You move with one stick and fire with the other. This version offers several new modes and even online play.... I was able to unlock all the modes, I wouldn't say that I am partial to any of them, yet... I would get the Wii version, but I don't have a Wii, yet!

I saw that there was an update to Puzzle Quest. I have had this one in my psp and played the crap out of it. Still haven't finished it. Didn't know if I wanted to start over from scratch on the 360!

Tom Troutman Disappointed? I love the new Geo Wars and have been at it obsessively since it dropped. The new modes are all fresh and I could be riding high on self inflicted hype, but its becoming one of my fave games ever. It might just be the old-school gamer mentality in me though. Shootin' shapes!!

Desiree (DesireeBee) | 7 comments I was disappointed at first. I found it incredibly easy to unlock all the modes and get 1 million in each of them. Since I like to play for achievements, I wish there were more that would make me want to play for higher scores. I have been trying to get rebound, wax on and the king pacifism achievement. Not to mention sequence, which I am not very good at! It just took me a while to get used to the new modes, now I am loving it!

Tom Troutman Im an achievement fiend myself. My gamerscore is standing strong at 27,302.

Desiree (DesireeBee) | 7 comments I'm only about 1/10 of that! Just watched a video of how to get the smile achievement in Geo2. Here is the link:
They make it look SO easy!

If you want to friend me on xbla, I am OzziesDreamer.

Desiree (DesireeBee) | 7 comments Tom,
You are definitely the Geo2 champ! I almost caught up to you on King, only to have you raise your score AGAIN! I was surprised to see that I am ahead of you in Geo1 though.... heehee!

Tom Troutman Im in a heated battle with a friend for high score supremecy and the stakes are a sushi lunch, so I keep getting pushed to rasie my score. I love this game, but I get so tense while playing it and I feel like a ball of stress afterwards.
