Defender

Playstation Illustrated
12 September 2004
  • Excerpt: A far cry from the original arcade game, Defender for the PS2 comes equipped with colorful 3D graphics that leave the original's particle effects, which were nearly unheard of at the time, in the dust. Every unit and building is modeled nicely, and you can even see the colonists kicking and squirming while they hang on to the underside of your wing. The landscapes are also well done, and as equal in diversity as they are in beauty.

Defender – Review

  • Excerpt: Like the saying goes, everything old is new again. In recent years, weve seen a fairly sizable resurgence of classic titles attempt to make lightning strike a second time. Its pretty clear that some have been more successful than others, although I think the key to pulling it off is in retaining the core elements while also significantly expanding on them.

  • Excerpt: Tag ikke fejl: retro er hot. Eller sagt på en anden måde: De kiksede spil fra 80′erne er tilbage, og der er to gennemgående tendenser: Enten taler vi emulation, dvs. perfekt efterligning af de gamle originaler (som vi så det for nyligt i Activision Anthology), eller også bliver et gammelt spil udgivet med nyt genopfrisket gameplay. Defender, er et eksempel på sidstnævnte, men hvordan klarer en af de største klassikere sig i 3D?
