'Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved' (X360) Titles Hit Leaderboard Milestone

This demo lets you try out Geometry Wars for the PC and requires Windows Vista.

Developed by the industry veterans at Bizarre Creations, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2, the sequel to the smash hit, takes players on an all new adrenaline ride through six different action-packed gameplay modes. With all the signature vibrant visuals and heart-pumping battles of the original, the game also features a new electrifying soundtrack and exhilarating local multiplayer modes in either versus or co-op for up to four players.

Bizarre Creations are very pleased to announce that there are now more than one million combined leaderboard entries for Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 1 & 2! Now that's a lot of highscoring and shape blasting! GWRE was released in November 2005, and its sequel saw the light of day at the end of July 2008.

Unfortunately it's impossible to tell whether these leaderboard entries equate to one million real life people. It's possible to have multiple accounts on your Xbox 360 which are used by a single person. Also there's going to be quite a few people who own both games, and have a leaderboard entry on each. Mind you, the leaderboards also don't take into account anybody who plays whilst not connected to Xbox Live, for example folks who own the XBL games compilation disc.

Obviously these numbers don't take into account the versions of Geometry Wars available on other platforms: mobile phone, PC, Xbox 1, Wii and DS.

Anyway, it's still a very important milestone for the Geometry Wars franchise. If you'd like to check your positions on the Retro Evolved leaderboards, you can do so directly on this website.
