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.
