Galaga review

Reviewed December 24, 2003

retro says: "I don't know many people my age who haven't played Galaga at one time or another. Galaga is a classic space shooter in which you control a spaceship at the bottom of the screen and attempt to exterminate all the aliens that are moving back and forth in the galaxy above you. Galaga wasn't the first game of its kind (Space Invaders and Galaxian paved the road for it to shoot down), but it was definitely the best of its kind back in the day. "

whelkman says: "Namco's Galaga (1981) is an interesting game. While it continues on the Space Invaders / Galaxian thread, it manages to be a much better game. How can that be? After all, the game play is the same. Or is it? Namco spent some serious think-time in the two years since Galaxian's release and returned with a killer game. "

yamishuryou says: "Iíve always had a love for shooters, and thus, the arcade era of video gaming is what I consider to be the best times of my life in terms of gaming. A shooter, no matter how shallow it may be in depth, sometimes have the effect of that long-term addiction that refuses to let you put down your controller or stop putting in quarters. Unfortunately, I was one of those affected by that lust, so you can take a guess at where a good amount of my allowance went. "
