While it’s no Geometry Wars, if you have some friends to play it with, Blast Factor gets a lot more entertaining and is certainly worth the $11 it costs to download. If you don’t have friends to play with, try the demo to determine if it’s worth the money.

We like

  • Solid Sixaxis implementation.
  • Multiplayer modes help the overall package a lot.

We dislike

  • There are too many of the same boss and not enough power-ups.
  • Graphics are generally generic and boring.
  • The basic sound effects aren’t helped by a complete lack of music.
