    My only real complaint against the game is that it doesn't seem to be a huge improvement over the original Legions title.

    There may not be a huge amount of content on offer here, but what's there is simply amazing. From the intense action to the striking visual, Galaga Legions DX doesn't sit in the shadow of Pacman CEDX, it stands tall along side it.

    If you were disenfranchised by the first Galaga Legions, definitely give DX a try. What was once a questionable reboot of Galaga is now one of the franchise's best installments. And if you liked it before, you're sure to love it now.

    It's a fantastic addition to XBLA and PSN, and it's a great way to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Galaga.

    It's not hugely long, offering only a couple of hours or so worth of unique content, but that's really not the point.

    Galaga Legions DX represents an improved version of Galaga Legions released in 2008 and follows the same style that strengthened the competitive status of Pac-Man Championship.

    A puzzle shooter that gets better with every play. [Oct 2011, p.105]

    Galaga Legions DX is what Galaga Legions should've been. DX reignites the old arcadegame in this modern era. It can be played indefinitely to improve your scores and to head off your friends on the leaderboards. It's not hard, maybe even a tad too easy, but most definitely addicting. And that without having to insert countless amounts of quarters.

    The fast and flashy dual-stick shooting of Galaga Legions DX makes it fun to blast space bugs all over again.

    A terrific little game that even casual shooter fans ought to find rather addictive.

    A brilliant rehash of a truly classic, stunning visuals, inspired gameplay, and grat fun. Shooter fans can't miss this.

    An exceptionally accessible package that fools you into thinking you're doing well - until you observe your pitiful online ranking.

    A brilliant rehash of a truly classic game.

    The retro art style is certain to please fans of the series, and "Focus Fire" helps keep Galaga relevant. The menus are bland, but accomplish their task. This game does leave me with a sense of "Déjà Vu" since it doesn't do more to define itself from the previous iteration, infact if you have Galaga Legions, you might want to skip this all together. The lack of achievements is also a little disappointing. Despite these few negative points, the gameplay is an absolute blast, and will keep you coming back for more.

    Even if you just want an occasional hectic diversion, Galaga Legions DX is an absorbing enough reinvention of the coin-op classic.
