  1. Not much has changed since the last invasion, but Space Invaders Extreme 2 is still a fun, vibrant reimagining of a classic game.

    Classic remake gets the sequel. It comes with same amount of playability but lack of any innovation makes it unimpressive for the previous Space Invaders Extreme owners. [Issue#187]
  3. Space Invaders Extreme 2 is an extremely solid game that will leave players wanting more. But with only eleven short levels and almost nothing making it different from the first entry, you might want to hold off on picking this one up, even at its bargain $20 price tag.

    Extreme 2, though, offers little to differentiate itself. It's a coincidental callback to 1979's Space Invaders Part II: most of the improvements will matter to those who were already obsessed. For some, that's probably enough for a buy, and if you haven't played SI Extreme before, now's the time, as you're still getting an enjoyable rewrite of an arcade classic. But those who had a passing fancy before can pass it up for the time being.

    Love, the music, love the game play, and love how there are many types of invaders instead of just one.
