The sequel to the smash hit on Xbox Live Arcade is now available for 800 points as Geometry Wars: retro Evolved 2 gets released to the Xbox 360 masses. The new big feature is multiplayer mode but you can only play it offline which is disappointing. There's new modes that involve multiplayer action as well as some new single player modes. The game's action is as fast paced as ever and if you're a fan of the first one you'll probably like the second one as well. Now how about a patch to make the multiplayer online capable?
