Well, I also prefer what they done with PacMan DX, which keeps the original gameplay of the first Pac Man.
But the game play for Galaga Legions is really new and very innovative. It's all about patterns and strategies about how to place your satellites the best to destroy 'legions' of aliens 8).
It's like playing the original Galaga but in many dimensions. The game may looks weird at first sight, but this is something you really have to experiment by yourself. I agree such game is not as accessible as the original shooter, because the game play here needs you to learn patterns, die and retry ... and may looks confuse sometime with billions of bees everywhere  ;D
The musics from the original 'Galaga Legion' are just fabulous (see this post), let's hope that DX edition will kick ass!  :-*

Got it ... and I really love it!
It's more easy than the first one. You don't have to play with your 2 satellites anymore... instead of that, you control the angle for fire with the right stick, like Geometry wars for example. The game is more playable in that way and more fun too.
After playing it two hours so far, I would say the game is more easy in that way... It's like a huge "Challenge Stages"  ;)
On the negative side, they didn't includes new songs, or just not enough... but they added new vintage graphics  :-*
