Thexder NO

  • Excerpt: Of all the remakes we’ve been inundated with in recent times, Square Enix’s update of obscure eighties shoot ‘em up Thexder has to rank among the least appealing. Released as a budget, download-only title for the PSP in late 2009, Thexder NEO doesn’t suffer any glaringly obvious troubles in translation; its 21st Century lick of paint is fine and the acclimatising of the controls to fit the PSP also passes without incident. The problem is, it never engages the player.
  • Pros: Polished presentation makes for a solid - looking revamp
  • Cons: Clumsy due to cramped levels, lacklustre shooting, boring enemies, derivative design
