Product Description

Amazon.com

It is hard to resist the retro charms of video games of the past, which is why a lot of these titles are coming back to life on modern platforms. Activision's revamp of Space Invaders treads lightly on the hallowed ground of the original point-and-shoot alien game. Even the pregame film clip pays homage to the simple 1978 version. While based heavily on a game that is over 20 years old, this newer version contains enough newer gaming elements to re-energize the classic into a contemporary contender.

In particular, the addition of 3-D graphics brings new life to this well-traveled game, though it is odd to play without the now-infamous pixilated square enemies creeping toward the bottom of the screen. There are also a wider variety of enemy ships, guns, special powers, mother ships, and squadron formations to contend with. You can try your luck on your own, or get a second player to help you during combat, which is great for players with short attention spans. There are plenty of chances to gain extra lives, which helps those of us who lost more than a few quarters on this game at the arcade. Space Invaders is perfect if you don't want to play a game with a long, drawn-out plot. --Carrie Bell

Pros:

  • Beloved arcade hit
  • Updated graphics, speed, and joystick response
  • Good gift for all ages, but especially those who remember the original
Cons:
  • Simplistic gameplay, no plot--may not be complicated enough for gamers who don't remember the original

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining but too easy September 20, 2000
This is a much swept-up version of the old Space Invaders game; the graphics are gorgeous and the sound effects entertaining. There are end-of-level bosses to take care of and many power-up weapons to collect that provide you with more fire-power.
I would have given this game 5 stars except it's too easy to beat! The game keeps track of how long you've been playing and when I finished the game it said I'd spent 58 minutes of playing time (and I'm not a particularly good gamer!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Revisited November 28, 2000
By A Customer
I saw this game last year, but for some reason I didn't pick it up. I thought it would be one of retro games where the gameplay is entirely revamped, but boy was I wrong. Has the game changed? Yes, but for the better. I would say it's more of an enhacement than a change. The greatest thing that Activision has done to this game was to keep the hyper-addictive gameplay that made the original like a magnet for my quarters. I LOVE THIS GAME!

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait! December 21, 1999
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
A nice feature in this game is 2 players can play simultaneously. Also the alien creature you fight are different looking and after you hit so many of a particular creature in a row you get a special power bomb that has different explosive capabilites. Even though the game gets a little monotenous, it has enough to keep you interested. The old game is even embedded if you want to play the classic. After viewing the old one, I can't believe why millions of us ever pumped quarter after quarter into those old arcade machines after you see the remake. I highly recommend, it is fun for all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars '' A CLASSIC GAME MADE BETTER '' !!! February 2, 2002
I LOVED THE OLD '' SPACE INVADERS '' GAME AS A KID . AND SPENT MANY AN HOUR AT THE LOCAL ARCADE . SO I SNATCHED THIS UP AS SOON AS I SAW IT IN THE STORE . I HAVEN'T HAD SO MUCH FUN PLAYING A SPACE GAME IN AGES ! THE GRAPHICS ARE REALLY COOL- AND YOU GET LOTS OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF SHIPS TO DESTROY. PLUS AS A BONUS- YOU CAN DESTROY MOTHER SHIPS THAT PASS BY , IN ORDER TO GET EXTRA LIVES OR SPECIAL POWERUPS . THIS MAKES DESTROYING ENEMY SHIPS ALL THE MORE FUN !AND THERE ARE EVEN ENEMY SHIPS THAT HAVE THEIR OWN DEADLY COUNTERATTACKS .NOT TO MENTION LOTS OF COOL BOSSES TO FIGHT !! SO IF YOU WANT A COOL GAME THAT BLOWS AWAY A CLASSIC OLD TIME ARCADE FAVORITE , THEN LOOK NO FURTHER.. YOU'LL PLAY IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN .. AND YOU CAN EVEN UNLOCK THE CLASSIC GAME TO PLAY AS WELL.. SO GRAB THIS ONE UP . AT THE LOW PRICE IT IS SELLING FOR , IT 'S A REAL GOOD BUY !!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Revision to a Classic Game June 28, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Hasbro's latest version of Space Invaders is awesome. It is quite similar to the orignal game but it isnt anywhere near as hard. Hasbro has enhanced the gameplay by adding powerups that have different functions, different background screens, and big bosses between the levels. A really cool function is the 2 player simultaneous mode where 2 people can blow away the aliens at the same time. If you beat all of the levels, you are rewarded with the orignal Space Invaders game, which is incredibly hard I might add. The graphics are good, and the gameplay is highly addictive. This one is fun for the kids, as well as the adults. At this price, this game is well worth it! I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely Addicted June 6, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game because I thought it would be fun to walk down memory lane. Well, I never thought it would be as addicting as it is. I can play it for hours. Now I conquer the world everytime and always try & beat my best time. I am completely addicted! I have introduced it to 2 other friends and they are addicted too. I now call it a sickness we are so nuts over this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Try To Get Back To Earth February 4, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Even with two players playing together, it is a great game and a lot of fun. I would suggest getting this game if you have an urge to spend 45 minutes in intense video-game playing. Can't wait to get back to Earth though! We haven't quite made it yet!
