Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
It's dangerous to mess with a classic, but every once in a while, it works out, if you can get past the blatant advertising. Galaga is one of those games many might argue doesn't need upgrading -- and they might be right -- but Galaga Wars tweaks the arcade classic just enough to bring it into the modern age, but retain much of the original's fun factor. The nonstop waves of enemies still give players an adrenaline rush, but the addition of blatant commercialism on top of the game might rub some people the wrong way. Being forced to watch a video ad to continue playing is grating, and optional upgrades seem mandatory after you've progressed a few levels into the game. The core of the game is solid, though, and the bright new graphics make it more accessible to younger players.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
