What Gamespot Users have to say about Xevious

  • Rating:5

    The Nintendo eShop suffered from a very skimpy line-up around the time 3D Classics: Xevious was released. Most of the games were unembellished re-releases of games from older platforms. Nintendo managed to make remakes o... Read Full Review

    This one really is a waste

    Xevious is the second game in the 3D cIassics series, which remakes NES games for the 3DS by adding 3D effects. The first game was excitebike, for which the 3D actually improved the graphics. This is not the case with Xe... Read Full Review

    Good as a 3D effect, not so good as an actual game

    I understand that Xevious isn't meant to be a complex shooter and is supposed to be an arcade classic. However as a game, it is very mediocre and has the bare minimum of what you would expect from a shoot-'em-up game. Wh... Read Full Review

    Fun, simple, and challenging shooter!

    Xevious was not a very graphically appealing game on the NES, but it's simple and challenging game play made it one of my favorite shooters on the console. Xevious seems like an endless scrolling top down shooter, whe... Read Full Review

    Fast paced and hard

    Xevious is very hard to play. Especially when you have to dodge so many attacks from the opponent. If people can get the right spot for landing bombs in the ground target, they can score instant kill. This is actually on... Read Full Review

    Xevious will kill your thumbs.

    Xevious stands up pretty well today as long as you can appreciate the retro presentation. it's a little on the slow side and it's very punishing on the thumbs, what with the manic rate of fire you'll have to maintain at ... Read Full Review

    I actually own this game as a mini game on Star Fox Assault... just to let you know. You'll get bored of in a few min.

    The game starts a with a nice little melody. After that, all you do is simply hold down the b button and you'll hear this annoying "plee, plee, plee" sound the rest of the time. There are about 6-8 enemies in... Read Full Review
