Summary: Defender is something of an oddity, an unusual hybrid combing elements of flight combat, sandbox fighting, and real time strategy into a surprisingly engaging package. You'll be tasked with directly combating ground and airborne foes from your space fighter of choice, while also defending key points and deploying friendly ground forces to hold the line against the alien buggers.
Excerpt: For those not familiar with the Defender of 1980, shame on you. Defender was a side-scrolling spaceship shooter with tight controls, intoxicating sound effects, and frantic gameplay that tantalized the arcade-going masses for over a decade. It was also a brutal challenge, and that hasn't been lost in Midway's infamous PS2 remake.
Summary: In this game you fly your little spaceship around and shoot a variety of different enemy ships, through a variety of environments. Once you've built up a few points, you can move on to better types of ships and purchase weapons upgrades. I chose the fastest and most maneuverable ship, which also had a very nice variety of weapons once you purchased all the upgrades. The game is pretty fun through the first half, with each level getting progressively harder.
Technically sound in every way- but somehow lacking...

Summary: This is one of those games that is technically sound in every way: - Good cutscenes - Easy to learn interface controls - Use of sound effects from original Defender game - Good graphics quality - Nice to see a bit of history about the old Defender game in the Extras. If you basically want a 3D version of the original Defender arcade game, then this game fits the bill.
Summary: This game is very challenging and fun. It does get very hard real quick and for rookie gamer like me that has been a struggle. I enjoy the game and have ordered a gaming guide to help me through the levels.
Summary: Let me start out by saying this could have been the Devil May Cry of flight simulators. You start out with a ship, a machine gun and some missiles, you go against a swarm of bugs were you are just basically firing into them and wasting every enemy you see. The game starts out with a basic tutorial to get you into the game and what its requirements are. Then you get thrown into the war against the manti and help the GSA slowly push them back to earth.
