Brandishing the reinvigorated Sierra brand, which is a digital-only publisher under the umbrella of Activision, comes Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions. Lucid Games, (comprised of developers at the now-defunct Bizarre Creations, the development house that birthed the original Geometry Wars) is under some pressure to deliver a worthy successor, after a 6-year hiatus for the series. And on all fronts Lucid Games succeeds in doing that, even introducing a campaign of sorts, that gives level-to-level challenges beyond getting the highest score (even though you’re still doing that). “Retro Evolved” would be fitting for a subtitle here, more so than any game in the series’ history.
