Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions follows successfully in the intimidating footsteps of its beloved predecessors, providing a challenging and graphically spectacular top-down shooter experience. The simple geometric visual theme hides what turns out to be a series of stunning and dynamic environments bursting with movement and eye-popping special effects accompanied by a lively, pulse-pounding electronic soundtrack. The simple, highly responsive controls are instantly intuitive, allowing players new and returning to get their footing in seconds. Yet the diversity of levels and complexity of enemy patterns ensures players are well-tested from start to finish.

A broad variety of objectives, drones, and supers only adds to the challenge. For example, in levels where you have only one life, smart bombs and defensive drones can prove very handy, while levels on which you need to defeat enemy waves quickly to add time to the clock might benefit more from a sniping drone and a mine-laying super. The shooting action is anything but repetitive -- a mean feat for a game in what often proves to be an overly simplistic and mundane genre. Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions lives up to the reputation of its predecessors, and then some.
