Everyday Shooter and Geometry Wars: Galaxies

On January 23, 2009, in General, by Neil Stevens

So I grabbed Everyday Shooter off of the Playstation Online Store at the recommendation of Ben Domenech. When my Playstation 3 was on the way I asked him for a list of things that were good to get, and that was on the list.

I don’t like it. It’s not a terrible game, no. But I find the graphics dull, the music and sound grating, and the gameplay dull. It has that classic luck element, but it also pretends to be a game you want to play all the way through level by level.

Maybe it’s not fair that for a couple months there I’d been playing a fair amount of Geometry Wars. I think that’s the much better game all around. Geometry Wars certainly has a luck element, but it plays by score, not completion of levels. That’s how it was meant to be with such classic arcade-style action.

So I congratulate Everyday Shooter on being a somewhat interesting game that manages to slow the pace and works hard to draw you in. I just prefer Geometry Wars and its, for lack of a better word, purer experience. Oh, and better graphics and sound, according to my preferences.
