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.
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.
Namco Bandai did some really good things with Galaga Legions DX. They maintained the integrity of the original game and added some fun elements, including the ability to freely move anywhere onscreen, to make the experience exciting. I wouldn't choose this over Pac-Man Championship Edition DX, but it's still mindless fun if you need an updated classic arcade shooter.
Even thought it's a frantic and hypnotic shooter, Galaga Legions DX fails to live up to the brilliance of Pac-man Championship Edition DX. It is not difficult to get through – in fact it is perhaps too easy and definately too short – but the difficulty in posting a good score makes you come back for more.
One round of Galaga Legions DX will show you about all it has to offer. It is gorgeous to behold, but there isn't much to sink your teeth into.
