This shooter I feel never got the respect that it deserved, more people remember Galaga, or Gradius than Xevious, and that is a shame. Now that it has been released for the Gameboy Advance as part of the Classic NES series, I hope it gains more popularity. Even today I can play Xevious and still be entertained, and that is something considering the game just hit its twenty-year age mark.
All in all, this Classic NES Series game does a great job of playing the NES version of Xevious. Unfortunately, the NES version of Xevious was never really all that great of a game, and its "classic" status on the NES is questionable, at best. Charging $20 for one 20-year-old game of middling quality certainly doesn't help matters either. Fans of Xevious would be better served by finding a copy of Namco Museum Volume 2 for the PlayStation, which contains the arcade version of Xevious and can probably be bought for less money than this cart.
Xevious nous ramène au source du shoot'em up. A une époque où on pouvait se passer de power up et où notre imagination pouvait nous permettre d'associer des petits carrés à un vaisseau de guerre surarmé ! Aujourd'hui, ça passe moins bien.
