Underrated, but still not perfect

Scott Whitman, Amazon
6 August 2013
  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Very Surprised at Hoe Good This Actually Is

  • Summary: This is nothing like the original and to be fair, if it was it would have been appalling. The original was a classic in the early 80's, but has no legs for today's gaming. So we have a new game with the basic infrastructure of the original and it works! This is a really good shoot em up.
