To the game’s credit, E4 does have a few play modes that extend the experience a bit. Some online versus modes might keep a few players around, though the general gist of the gameplay is still the same. And for Geometry Wars fans, there’s a cool mode that plays pretty much exactly like the seminal Asteroids knock-off.
Every Extend Extra Extreme is a cool game, and a gorgeous showpiece for Xbox Live Arcade, holding up well with the likes of other trippy titles like Geometry Wars and Space Giraffe. But the repetitive gameplay doesn’t really hold up like it should. And the game’s crazy presentation will only take most gamers so far.
