It takes everything that worked about the original and improves upon it with modern flourishes. The original was fine for its time, but with greatly-improved controls and graphics, everything is more enjoyable now than it was then. It’s also a far more user-friendly experience thanks to an extensive tutorial system and manages to remain extremely challenging because it never walks you through anything — it merely teaches you the ropes and expects you to remember everything.
Japanese shoot 'em ups have a very specific audience, and while that audience will be ecstatic to get its hands on this, casual players will baulk at the price point and likely be put off with the rage-inducing difficulty moments. The price is a little high for this type of remake, but worth it for fans of the original. All around, Assault Suit Leynos is an enjoyable resurgence and hopefully the first of many remakes incoming from a great franchise.
Sporting a varied campaign that's bolstered by satisfyingly weighty gameplay, Assault Suit Leynos is a good way to enjoy a hardcore classic. It isn't especially friendly to newcomers and at times its overwhelming mission design can be a burden, but it still stands strong as a solid mech shooter that'll put your piloting skills to the test – even 26 years after its original release.
