    3D classics: Xevious is a port of the Arcade/Nintendo Entertainment System/Famicom game of the same name. Xevious consists of a spaceship shoot em' up game where you skilfully dodge projectiles, shoot down enemy crafts and bomb grounded enemy vehicles, buildings and turrets. The main purpose of the game is to survive as long as possible and to score as high as possible in the points category. The game is not easy however, one shot to your craft is enough to take it down and lose a life and you are usually bombarded with a large amount of enemy fire. A high score table and control editing is available in the improved menu interface. There is also an interrupt save feature so you can quit in the middle of a game and return to it in the exact location you left off. The 3D effect gives the game a sense of depth and makes it far easier to judge differences from threats in the air and on the ground. If you are a fan of classic spaceship shoot em' ups and/or difficult games, take a look. Expand

    For retro gaming fans, this is a classic game that you will want in your collection. for the rest of us, however, it's shallow gameplay shows it's age and though the updated 3d treatment is nice, it isn't enough to save this game from being played mostly once or twice then quickly forgotten. There are some games that are worth bringing back from the annals of history but this one doesn't manage to cut it unless you're a very big fan of retro games. Collapse

    Of all the games they could have chosen, why did it have to be this one? [Oct 2011, p.95]

    Xevious on 3DS was inevitable. Shame they didn't do anything with it. [Sept 2011, p.77]
