Greatest Game Of All Time
26 April 2005 | by tarantino87See all my reviews

For all those out there, GALAGA (1980) is THE GREATEST GAME OF ALL TIME without question. The graphics and game-play for it's time are phenomenal and were so far advanced than other games it received praise beyond belief. Buy this game on any console and you won't be disappointed! It was a new generation of the all time 'classic' "Space-Invaders", and in it's own right, earned it's own 'classic game' title. - I give this game an 11/10 because it is just outright the best game i have ever played and will keep ANYBODY hooked for hours on end. GAME DESCRIPTION: "You're under attack! The Galagans are reclaiming planets they lost during a centuries-old interstellar war -- and now they want yours! And you're ready to fight to the bitter end to protect it!

So you join the Intergalactic Warrior Fleet. Without training, you're assigned to your first combat mission -- and on-the-job is the only way to learn. Shaking in your boots, you accept the assignment and board your Intergalactic Command Ship."
