IGN goes hands-on with Geometry Wars 2

By Patrick Garratt, Monday, 14 July 2008 22:46 GMT

IGN’s posted what looks to be the world’s first hands-on with the now-confirmed Geometry Wars 2. Snip:

The most interesting multiplayer variant is co-pilot mode. With this mode enabled, you have a single ship. One player is pilot, the other is gunner. Obviously, this mode is shut off for Pacifism, since the gunner would have nothing to do but make off-color comments to his pilot. But in Sequence, you can greatly improve your play. Focusing only on piloting (or shooting) is only going to strengthen your ability. Having that singular focus can turn you into a superstar. And hey, if you’re a pilot, you can show off all the needle-threading skill you’ve attained in Pacifism.

It’s out in a few weeks. And for that we’re thankful. Have a read.
