Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Just finished Geometry Wars Galaxies on Wii… or at least, I medaled on all the planets. I don't think you can actually really "finish" the game proper. I've got to say, it's actually one of the best titles on the system. I've always thought Geometry Wars was great, but the addition of an upgradable drone and several different galaxies with different types of levels to play through really felt fresh and interesting. Thumbs up.

Oh, two caveats:

1> the game is practically unplayable using the Wiimote. If you're going to get into it, the Classic controller is the only way to go. Two sticks FTW.

2> the final galaxy can only be unlocked by having the Wii communicate with a DS running the Galaxies cart… pretty cheeseball, IMO, but I already subscribe to GameFly so I was able to have them send it out to me, I unlocked that last bit, and sent it back two minutes later.

That stuff aside, it still gets my recommendation.
Drink Coffeecola. It's good and good for you!
