Solid and definitely has an audience. There could be some hard-to-ignore faults, but the experience is fun.
Whether you choose to play for the light show or a spot on the leaderboard is personal choice, but neither option is a bad one and both offer plenty of high-energy shooting action. It’s great to have Space Invaders Extreme back, dancing away on a modern platform, and maybe if it does OK for itself we could get Infinity Gene as well. There’s always hope.
The story with Space Invaders Extreme is that it's brutal and unforgiving, but not in an immediately obvious manner. It's not like those danmaku shmups, where ships have to make pixel perfect dodges through seas of neon pink death. All of the challenge is in the complex and very exact scoring system. The infectious grooves and charming graphics could almost be considered a smokescreen, for all of the challenge and frustration that can be found within.
Space Invaders Extreme ha tardado 10 años en llegar a PC, pero lo ha hecho con una suerte de conversión que mantiene lo ya conocido en Nintendo DS, PSP y Xbox 360 pero añadiendo mejoras visuales y clasificación mundial. No hay mucho más que decir: excelente para fans o para quienes quieran acercarse al clásico de la manera menos visualmente "lesiva" posible.
