Space Invaders Extreme

The Gamers Temple
25 November 2009
  • Excerpt: The Space Invader High Command has been busy revising their attack strategies. "Reverse course, descend, and accelerate may have worked thirty years ago, but modern times demand modern tactics.  Varied attack patterns and new invaders that are four times the standard size, carry shields into battle, or split into multiple invaders when hit are just some of the new things that planetary defenders will will have to cope with in Space Invaders Extreme.

True achievements

  • Conclusion: In my opinion with 2 people one can cover the right side and one on the left, with a little communication I think this works out the best. now for the last one which is still a mystery to me, space commander rank s, achieved rank s three times I believe this one doesn't have to be in the same game, as far as how to get rank s, I'll let you all know when I figure it out. Hope this helps and have fun. One more tip if you light up all the panels such as same row,color,etc.

The Invasion Returns

GIN
17 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Coming out in honor of its 30th anniversary, Taito released an update to their classic Space Invaders. Sure we have seen many revisions to the classic SI formula, but they all played the same. Even the home versions released by Activision in 1999 as part of a wave of classic remakes failed to impress, especially when you consider it was at a retail price.

Space Invaders Extreme [Xbox Live Arcade]

18 May 2009
  • Excerpt: When Pac-Man Championship Edition launched on the Xbox Live Arcade in 2007, many of us envisioned a needless re-imagining of a classic game, another tie-in that would milk the Pac-Man franchise even further. As it turned out, Championship Edition was not only a fantastic downloadable title that revitalized the series, it was just as fun and addictive as the original, if not more so.

Space Invaders Extreme

oxmonline.com
5 May 2009
  • Excerpt: As the original alien shooter, Space Invaders was always famous for being first, not best. Hits like Gorf, Galaxian, and Galaga quickly evolved its core formula into something with more replay value. But like a rapping granny, Extreme pushes the other kids aside and busts some of its own updated moves — enormous pixelated bosses, waves of invaders that break formation, upgraded weapons like lasers and bombs, hyperactive Fever rounds, mid-battle minigames, multiplayer...
  • Pros: + Modern mechanics give this chestnut new life., + All the multiplayer modes you'd want.
  • Cons: - The aggressive electronic soundtrack gets grating fast., ? "Extreme"? Really?

'Space Invaders Extreme' (360)

Digital Spy
27 December 2009
  • Excerpt: creator Shigeru Miyamoto and turning a whole generation to pixels, bleeps and boops as a source of entertainment. Its influence on the industry and pop culture is huge, and its wild and spiralling success was two fold; its mechanics were obvious to the complete novice and can be picked up instantly, and its seafood-inspired spaceships are just as recognisable and have since become synonymous to anything to do with a joystick.
