  • Summary: I was skeptical when I first heard about Space Invaders Extreme. While I can appreciate the importance of the original 1978 shooter, I can say that it never affected me the way that it did so many other gamers.

7 May 2009
  • Summary: After nearly 30 years of blasting space bugs as a pixilated starship, the influence of Space Invaders is still prevalent in other shooters. Iterations of Gradius and R-Type evolved the horizontal movement and vertical shooting of their arcade ancestor, but Space Invaders refuses to be forgotten.
  • Pros: Simple and familiar 2D shooting offers a gratifying challenge, Oodles of extras such as boss fights, power-ups, and bonus modes, Fantastic soundtrack, Great multiplayer modes, Plenty of reasons to keep coming back
  • Cons: Quite short, Slight response lag when online, Intolerable sound effects
