PlayStationThe Video Game Critic (Jul 15, 1999)
Many arcade classics have been resurrected on the Playstation with fancy 3D graphics and improved audio, but few manage to improve on the original in terms of pure gameplay. That said, Xevious 3D/G+ is a very pleasant surprise.
PlayStationIGN (Jun 11, 1997)
If any classic game deserves to be brought into the polygon age, it's Namco's Xevious. Already ahead of its time when released, Xevious is the perfect contender for a face-lift. Thankfully, Namco has retained the gameplay elements that made the original so compelling.
PlayStationDigital Press - Classic Video Games (Oct 16, 2005)
Never a company to rest on its laurels, Namco has included both Xevious and Super Xevious emulators in this package, and as if THREE games weren’t enough, there’s also a “completely rearranged” version of the original, Xevious Arrangement, which also includes two-player simultaneous play. Casual Xevious players may not notice the differences between the first three games, but die hard fans of the series will easily spot the subtle, but very welcome, changes between Xevious (original), Super Xevious (slightly different, more difficult) and Xevious Arrangement. Arrangement boasts more detailed graphics, powerups (of the 1942 or Twin Eagle variety), and more outstanding music. The riff that plays when you meet the first mothership in Arrangement is downright frightening! (Note: it’s supposed to startle the player, so that’s a big compliment.) Shoot ‘em up fans’ game libraries are NOT complete without a copy of Xevious 3D/G+.

Xevious 3D/G+ is a must-buy for retro arcade fans looking to add a few uncommon titles to their collection, though some gamers may be perplexed by how similar three of the games are.
PlayStationGamezilla (1997)
If you are a fan of the classic Xevious games, you should be happy with this collection. If not, you will get a few hours of fun -- but it will start to wear off real quick. Before you buy, I suggest a rental so you can decide if the games are really as cool as you remember them.
PlayStationPlay Magazine (1997)
If you always liked the old shooting games like these, your decision will have already been made and you'll be getting good value for your money. But if you have no interest in the retro side of the package, there is nothing here which makes Xevious 3D/G any better than Ray Storm which has been confirmed for a UK and so will cost you about £30 less.
PlayStationPSX Nation (1997)
I really cant find a flaw on this title except the difficulty. I think this title is way too hard and if a little easier I would say it is the best shooter. This genre needs something new and innovative to revive it and carry on. The titles are going the way of doom clones.
PlayStationEdge (May, 1997)
Namco's latest PlayStation release is not only an accurate conversion but also serves as a perfect homage to the series. As well as Xevious 3D/G, the package contains the original Xevious, Super Xevious and Xevious Arrangement. Only the first 3D title in the series, the five-year-old Solvalou, fails to make an appearance.
PlayStationVideo Games (Aug, 1997)
Alle grundlegenden Spiele-Elemente des Originals findet Ihr in der »3D«-Version wieder. Die Grafik setzt zwar keine Meilensteine, erfüllt aber voll und ganz ihren Zweck. Ein butterweiches Scrolling in alle Richtungen und die genialen Perspekivenwechsel- und Zoomeffekte runden den guten Gesamteindruck ab. Auch die Techno-Tracks passen hervorragend in das moderne Xevious-Ambiente. Das einzige, was mich fürchterlich fuchste, ist der deftige Schwierigkeitsgrad, der mit zwei spärlichen Continues gerade Anfängern das Bildschirmleben schwer machen dürfte. Sobald Ihr die wichtigsten Joypad-Kniffe herausgefunden habt, stellt sich erst das legendäre Suchtpotential ein. (…) Für den einen oder anderen mag Xevious 3D/G+ egal in welcher Version, nicht mehr zeitgemäß sein, aber ein guter Vertikal-Shooter bleibt es allemal - nicht nur hemmungslose Nostalgiker sollten mal einen Blick darauf werfen.
PlayStationMega Fun (Jul, 1997)
Ja, ja, die guten alten Zeiten. Schon allein der sirrende Sound konnte einen damals zur Ekstase treiben. Auch heute noch haben das Original-Xevious einen gewissen Unterhaltungswert - vorausgesetzt, man kann mit mickriger Grafik und Düdelsound leben. Positiv ist hier, daß man sämtliche Features der Originalplatine einstellen kann - Anzahl der Leben, Schwierigkeitsgrad, Continuemöglichkeit, etc. Von der 3D-Variante war ich allerdings etwas enttäuscht: Einmal hätte ich von der Grafik etwas mehr Innovation erwartet, zum anderen ist die Spielatmosphäre kalt und steril wie in einer Entbindungsklinik. Wer von der Möglichkeit der Endlos-Continues Gebrauch macht, hat sich schnell um die mittelfristige Motivation gebracht: Das Spiel ist nämlich in Null Komma nichts durchgezockt. Xevious ist ein Fall für die Oldie-Sammlung - mehr nicht!
PlayStationGameSpot (Apr 17, 1997)
All in all, Xevious 3D/G+ is an OK purchase for fans of old-school shooters. But if you're simply thirsting for a good 3D shooting experience, your money would be better spent elsewhere.
PlayStationJoypad (Oct, 1997)
Vous comprenez bien qu'il serait donc inutile que je poursuive ici cet article puisque vous avez déjà compris qu'il ne faut pas acheter Xevious.
