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.
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.
