    An excellent game that lives up to the Pacman CE team. Lots of strategy that remains true to the original, but the game play feels ominously similar to Geometry Wars 2.

    Awful. has ripped the guts out of the original and replaced them with a Geo Wars wannabe but nowhere near as good. The firing is just too boring. I'll be sticking to the original thanks.

    The learning curve is steeper than something like Geometry Wars, but once you start to master Galaga Legions, it transforms from a merely good game into something truly fantastic. Gorgeous, thrilling, and filled with depth, Galaga Legions comes highly recommended and is one of the best games of the year.

    Superb game in its own right - but its immediate predecessor, Galaga 90 was far better.

    Reminds me a bit of REZ and quite a bit of Space Invaders Extreme... but not as good as either of these titles. The graphics are nice - it's just that the game is lacking... it's boring.

  1. Toppling "Geometry Wars 2" from its throne is now the goal for any stripped-down Live Arcade shooter, and Namco Bandai deserves praise for delivering a game that comes within grasping distance of this lofty aim.

    Galaga Legions answers the call with some of the most frenetic and psychedelic visuals this side of Geometry Wars. While the amount of gameplay in the $10 download might leave a bit to be desired, there's no doubt that Galaga Legions is more proof that classic games can be revitalized without selling users short or deviating too greatly from the vintage design.
  3. If you enjoyed the original Galaga, or are a classic shooter fan, then you'll love this true sequel to one of the greatest arcade shooters of yesteryear.
