Defender Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: So in a nutshell, Midway has taken a timeless classic and turned it into a modern day shoot’em up. Is the game horrible? No. But, is the game on its fast track into becoming a buzzword like Halo or Time Splitters? Not even close. After spending a lot of time with Defender I have decided that I would have more fun playing the 1980’s original than spend 50 bucks on this. Midway had some big shoes to fill.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Midway and Inevitable Entertainment took their job seriously with Defender. The took the premise of the classic title, gave it a Starship Troopers back story (complete with the ‘Troopers tongue in cheek approach and several nods to the movie itself) and pulled the game into 3-D. Just as the name suggests, you spend most of the game on the defensive. Alien races of oversized cockroach/insect/classic Defender enemies called the Manti are devouring humans like popcorn.
