Summary: This is an addictive, very cool game. I got into space invaders on the Atari 2600 and have loved the game ever since, this new version is a whole new level for this classic shooter. There are so many improvements that it's a whole new game, it's Space Invaders for the 21st century.
Summary: Taito has redefined the space invaders experience, a myriad of power ups and twists refreshes the tried and true Invaders formula. The player is cast in the familiar role of defending earth against the persistent aliens, only now must cope with a myriad of sense-assaulting graphical displays. This game is packaged in a slick, beautiful interface which is very engaging, highly recommended! This is a technical achievement and an artistic expression all wrapped into one.
Summary: The person I gave this to is young and absolutely loves the game. It is great to see some of the "old" video games that some of us grew up with come back and be loved just as much by the young people today as when we were young.

Summary: I found it in the bargain bin when it was released and thought "Wow my grandma's game again." I decided to try it and was pleasantly surprised. I am now entranced.. I love the lights and sound and if you add the rumble cart (not included) It becomes the most satisfying casual game play ever invented. The controls are simple with left hand move and right hand shoot and as simple as that sounds it's not. I am left frothing in anticipation for more!
Summary: Ok, to start this review all I have to say is that this game is a must have for any ds owner that liked or loves the original space invaders and space invaders revolution (also for ds). Story: Okey, the story consists of 5 main stages, but after stage 2 you can choose an easy or hard stage ex. 3-A or 3-B. In total there are 11 stages. 4 stage 5's, 3 stage 4's, 2 stage 3's, and stages 1 and 2. The later stages are extremely hard!
Summary: For those of us who grew up with Atari systems, the new Space Invaders is a must-buy. It's totally updated, with alot of color, great sound effects, and all that, but it's the same game we loved way back when. I'm having a blast getting addicted all over again!
Summary: As what all the other reviews have said, this game has brought a classic back to the new generation of gamers. I bought the game mostly because it said Space Invaders, and the fact that it was a new version. And that it was $[...] added to it because I am very short on money (lol). Ever since I bought it have played it so many times. The need to finish a level and move on the boss and start a new one just makes me want to play and play.
Summary: Space Invaders is one of the most recognized games ever created. If offered simple yet addictive gameplay. Celebrating its 30th anniversary, Space Invaders returns in an all new game. The game offers several modes of play, each with 5 main stages where each stage has different branches to choose from. The first is "arcade mode" which allows you to go through the game at your pace and allows you to save and restart from the beginning of levels should you fail.
Summary: Intense action. Great psychedelic graphics. Fun gameplay. Each run through feels different via all of the different random options, powerups and levels. There is a good bit of strategy required to max out the scores as you blast the aliens. Great fun. A new classic and a must buy for anyone who is familiar with the original.
