Get both, they equally kick ass.

Meteor Blitz is more of a full-blown, Jesus Christ! arcade experience. The upgrades lack depth, though.

Isotope is infused with adventure/RPG elements. Both are great in their own respects, just different, and depends on what you're looking for.

I think both, or at least Isotope, have lite versions.

I'm really surprised with the poll result

I tried Isotope ages ago, and hated it. Didn't like the no inertia top down flying thing. But then I played it a little more and something clicked and I ended up finishing the game, collecting all the ships and fully upgrading them. It's without a doubt the best of the genre.
I have Meteor Blitz, and I have played to the fourth world (not too shabby - you have to survive 5 levels in each world to unlock the next world)(took quite a while) And I upgraded the basic cannon all the way - but after a while I got bored.

If you are going for graphics and twitchy frenetic game play - meteor blitz.
If you want a more developed game I would go for Isotope. There is so much more content, and variety in enemies, ships you can fly and weapons. The game is huge and it really held my attention.

Meteor Blitz FOR SURE. The dual sticks have perfect control, and it gets hectic. Just don't upgrade the fire/ice beams, focus on the green blaste [forgot actual names]
