First Impressions: Galaga Legions

August 21, 2008

I’ve been on this big XLA kick lately and with Bionic Commando: Rearmed and Galaga Legions both as new releases I couldn’t help but indulge.

Galaga Legions is not a simple remake of Galaga. Oh no. It’s completely redone and updated and it’s wild.

Gone are the simple streams of enemy fighters that make a simple formation and then proceed to dive bomb you. Now enemies come streaming in following swirling patterns that will make your head spin. Furthermore, you aren’t limited to side to side movements which makes Legions seem more like modern day shooter than it’s coin-op forefather.

I won’t give too much more away, but the visuals are stunning and the classic skin was a great touch. If you are on the fence, stop putting it off and just spend the 800 points for it.
