Thumbs down Screw it, I quit.

Fuck it. I am done with this game for good. What a waste of points for a whopping 40GP that ill never get past.

I can 1000 Halo 3 but cant get half way through this stupid fucking game. No idea why I bought BOTH of them either. The other one with challenges is at least semi fun but now I just wish I could trade it back in for 100pts or something.

I have never felt such anger for little fucking shapes in my life before. Or bright colors, or techno. I now officially hate all 3 thanks to this game.

Funny thread title. Geometry Wars 1 is hard but I still think it is a load of fun.

Geo wars 2 is better, and 200/200 is feasible (I did it )

Yeah reaching 1,000,000 points without dying is truly one of the harder achievements for me for some reason. I'll bust it out sometime soon, but for now I'll just leave the game at 170G.

took me like a month to beat the first one, and I was pretty good to begin with. All I did to keep it fresh was just not focus on it, and jump in and play it trying to get it for like half an hour then, getting on with my life; made it to where it didn't irritate me. But here is what I loved to death about completing this game. Being able to do it... so many people have 1000s and such on games I could easily fully complete, but few of them have geometry wars completed cause they are not as skilled at games as I am they just want it more. So I think you should not give up, cause having geo wars completed is just too good to pass up over the frustration, and if that doesnt work for ya then dont let that game get the best of you, kick its ass or what not. The second games achievements are dumb btw, just forget that game.

Take a break from it for a little while and then come back.


I haven't gone back to it after my break after about...2 1/2 years or so, lol. It's a fun game to still pick up and play every once in a while.

Don't give up mate!! Its just practice, practice and more practice!!
Plus the feeling of competing this game makes it so worth it in the end!!

Ps. The achievements in Geometry wars 2 compared to the first one are an absolute breeze.

It really is easier if you haven't played in awhile. I kept trying over and over while getting angrier and angrier. I got the achievement just firing up the console one day and starting fresh.

gamer score doesn't mean squat no one is gonna think your cool if its really high or you took every achievement out of every game. quite the oposite in fact. why not just enjoy games and don't wory about the achievments.

geometry wars is a great litle game even if it is hard. don't go trying to make it out to be crap just bacause you can't take the achievments out of it.

This.
I got the game the other day, only 3 achievements for 20g so far but I am loving it, it probably is one of the harder games i've played and yet am addicted to it!

I would be mad like the OP too if it wasn't for the fact that I got this game for free. Still a great game though.

Don't feel bad, I gave up trying to get achievements for this game a looooong time ago. I still play from time to time because it is fun, but I am resigned to the fact that regardless of how much I play, I'll never get more than the few achievements I have in it.

I've been trying to do this game slowly. Now that I'm on christmas break I figure that If I play right until I want to throw the controller, that's all I can do. It's a fun game and gets your heart pumping once everything starts blending together. Good luck everyone!

This game isn't THAT difficult. I'd say only about a third of all people who play it would be decent at it.

This game is just insanely hard, and it is very boring, I can't believe I bought this lol... It is EXTREMLY boring, it is only very beautiful but hell I managed to do the achievement where you have to survive 60 second without shooting... but I quit already lol, I don't want to spend any more time on this game, I am way too bad, I can't even make more then 50,000.

All these comments talking about how hard this game is, and how so many people quit...now I know I will perfect this game.
And that is why I'm an achievement hunter.
