    Arcade Game Series: Galaga is the best home version of the original Galaga arcade game yet. Whether or not the new features warrant an upgrade from the Xbox 360 version depends entirely on your devotion to Galaga and how much you care about Achievements. If you do like both Galaga and Achievements, this version is a must-buy.

    If you like the original Galaga and want it for your XB1, this is a great pick up.

    Pros...

    Reasonably priced at only $3.99. You get a better deal with the 3 in 1 pack, which is $7.99 for Pac Man, Dig Dug and Galaga. Ms. Pac Man is only available as a stand alone.

    It's the original game.

    Leaderboards. Saves your top score (initials) locally. Can list leaderboard with world wide, friends, or personal.

    Cons....

    It doesn't seem to have 2 player (hot seat/take turns) mode. It takes a little long to load (less than backwards compatible 360 version). And it is listed as "Arcade Series" Galaga on your games list.

    The perfect example of a very retro arcade game aging as well as milk. The controls are stiff, the deaths are all cheap and the replay valueThe perfect example of a very retro arcade game aging as well as milk. The controls are stiff, the deaths are all cheap and the replay value is next to nil. While this may have worked in the arcades way back when, it is a game that doesn't hold up well these days.
