A New Classic Invasion

GIN
30 December 2009
  • Excerpt: One of two things is going to happen when you pick up a popular old school game. Your either going to, one, think to yourself "wow I can't believe how much time this fossil of a game previously stole from my life" or, two, you're going to get that ole' warm giddy feeling you used to get when you picked up the game back in the day and be flooded with a bunch of old school memories.

  • Conclusion: Space Invaders Extreme 2 keeps the same addictive elements that made the first game so good and adds a few new features, but it's more of an incremental improvement. The gameplay is still great but very similar to last year's game, which makes Extreme 2 feel like a huge expansion pack. It's still a standout DS game though and a bargain at only $20.

Game Over Online
3 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Space Invaders, the game that swallowed countless quarters, consumed the spare change and cost the lunch money of many arcade fans in the early 1980s. Originally sold by Taito, the arcade game featured a laser ship defending itself against waves of invading aliens. After its recent re-release on the DS, PSP and Xbox Live Arcade, Square Enix and Taito have returned with the expected sequel, Space Invaders Extreme 2 exclusively on the DS.

Space Invaders Extreme 2 Review

G4
16 October 2009
  • Summary: Space Invaders gets another techno-psychedelic makeover, and it's at least as much fun as the first time around. Some players may have overdosed already, but if not, Extreme 2 adds more ways of scoring massive bonus points and a time-attack mode that strips the game down into something a bit more focused. The graphics and sound, of course, are a riot, an interactive rave lightshow with echoes of Sega's classic Rez.
  • Pros: Stylish graphics and addictive music, Lots of clever variations on a simple gameplay concept
  • Cons: Multiplayer isn't as exciting as the solo mode in some ways, Not too many new features compared to the original Extreme
