It's certainly the most ambitious and fully realized title in the series to date, and it's difficult to imagine a different take that would improve it. In many ways, it is the perfect game.

This really is "more Geometry Wars", but it's been quite some time since we've had a new game. The campaign level design offers something new, but the classic mode is where it's really at.
Dimensions arrives with perfect timing. It rescues the best of the series, the drones and the geoms from Galaxies and the HD glory of Retro Evolved, adding new 3D areas that give a twist to all what you thought you learned from the previous ones.
Geometry Wars 3 brings the tight twin-stick feel of the series to the modern gaming era while also paying homage to the series’ roots. Just steer clear of its online multiplayer game modes.
My thumb, however, stands testament to the game's greatness, throbbing in pain as I enter the seventh consecutive hour of geometric action.
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is a solid reboot of a series that’s been gone far too long, and even if all of its experiments on the old formula don’t work, enough of them do to make it a game worth chasing as many high scores as you can manage.
