Excerpt: Does the ESRB even have a clue as to how to rate a video game? Space Invaders Revolution on the Nintendo DS is a shooter. That means you shoot a lot of alien ships, and make them explode. The ESRB gave this game an ‘E’ for Everyone rating with no descriptors. That is right no descriptors. I shoot something, and there is an explosion and the ESRB can not figure out how to write the word: “Violence” in some form. No wonder so many parents feel the ESRB is a broken system.
Excerpt: The period right after Christmas is a time when new game releases are relatively scarce, and is thus a time when one such as myself who has spent the past few months playing review copies trying to remain caught up can take some time to play some games that he has meant to get around to for a while.
Summary: From a visual standpoint, the new Arrange
version is decent, but nothing spectacular. The levels are basically static
screen grabs of generic city or nature shots, overlaid by the action. In a cool
concession to classic fans, however, the sprites and animations are basically
the original sprites with a few added frames of animation. The arrange mode also
features some decent music that plays in the background as well.
Excerpt: Mastiff's value-priced Space Invaders Revolution is a no-frills celebration of the classic Taito arcade game that helped launch the industry that now consumes many hours of our lives. The game card includes the original 1978 Space Invaders and a new-age remake, which takes the original's gameplay and fleshes it out with new power-ups, multiple mission goals, and upgraded graphics and audio.
Pros: Two games in one, New weapons and aliens make the remake fun, Perfect emulation of classic Space Invaders
Cons: Both games feel old, Can finish remake in a couple of hours, Graphics and audio are not DS quality
Excerpt: Space Invaders er en av spillverdens aller største klassikere, og siden spillet kom til arkadene i 1978 har det vært oppdatert og utgitt på mange plattformer. I Japan var spillet så populært at det førte til mangel på mynter før myndighetene firedoblet antallet. Nå har spillet funnet veien til Nintendo DS med undernavnet Revolution – revolusjon. Vi får oppleve er et par nye elementer som spruter litt liv inn i det gamle spillet, men det er langt fra noen revolusjon.
