Space Invaders Extreme 2 (DS)

 

Last year's Space Invaders Extreme was a lively update to the classic franchise. With complex enemy waves, new weapons, and a color-coded matching system, it offered a huge leap in both aesthetics and gameplay. Space Invaders Extreme 2 is similarly...

There's nothing quite like an old video game series celebrating a landmark anniversary to make you feel old, especially when it's a 30th anniversary, as is the case for Space Invaders. The game that literally created a shortage of yen coins in Japan is...

Space Invaders Extreme 2

 

I thoroughly enjoyed Space Invaders Extreme on both the PSP and DS when it was released. It's been a year and a half since that update to the arcade classic, and while I wasn't necessarily clamoring for more “twitch” action on my DS, I cracked open the...

Great arcade action with some strategy for those that want it ; Music and sound effects work together ; Addictive gameplay

Trippy animated backgrounds quickly become distracting ; Too short, only five stages

The Bingo Mode is a good twist, but that’s the biggest change and addition over Space Invaders Extreme. That doesn’t mean Space Invaders Extreme 2 isn’t worth playing. On the contrary, I keep playing it to the detriment of some other games for review,...

Arcade remakes typically aren't all that good but last year's Space Invaders Extreme caught me off guard by being stylish, addictive and challenging. It did everything right in reworking the arcade original into a much deeper modern interpretation, and...

Space Invaders Extreme 2 keeps the same addictive elements that made the first game so good and adds a few new features, but it's more of an incremental improvement. The gameplay is still great but very similar to last year's game, which makes Extreme...

This one goes up to eleven.

Scoring is more forgiving than in the original ; The Bingo card adds an interesting layer of strategy ; More chaotic, but in a good way ; More robust multiplayer

Quite short ; No paddle option for DSi

Overall, Space Invaders Extreme 2 is a very worthy sequel to the original. If you liked the first game, you should run out right now and buy this one. If you haven't tried either one, this sequel is a better package overall.

Most games that have "extreme" or such derivations in their titles are almost invariably not. This latest entry into classic territory actually is. Space Invaders Extreme starts off as the classic game does, with a space craft darting left to right....

Back in Middle School I had a paper route that went by a 7-11 that had arcade cabinets for Asteroids, Donkey Kong and Space Invaders. Everybody loved Donkey Kong, but I never seemed to be able to get past the third level. I did, however, manage to no...

Great update to the arcade original

Dual screen can interfere with lining up shots occasionally ; Very "busy" screen

Get the DS version. This is fun. We like fun.

Space Invaders Extreme DS Review

 

When's the last time you played Space Invaders? Last time I played Space Invaders, I was at Chuck E. Cheese wearing two-tone corduroy bell-bottoms and listening to “My Sharona”. Yep, it's hard to believe, but this year marks the 30th anniversary of...

For some, Space Invaders Extreme 30th Anniversary Edition will be a fresh take on a golden oldie; for others, an engaging new title. For everyone, it's a great deal—for $20 you not only get hours of great entertainment, you get your own little piece of...
