  • Summary: Shoot, attack and stave off the assault by defeating all the Invaders on the screen. After annihilating a battalion of Invaders and defeating the Boss, players move on to the next stage. But it’s "Game Over" if players lose all of their stock cannons! [Square Enix]

  1. One of the better things you could spend $20 on the system for, and something every DS owner should pick up.
  2. If you’re looking for something to cure boredom on long car rides, wanting something to cure that nostalgia itch, or simply are looking for a great game for cheap than look no further than Space Invaders Extreme 2.
  3. Furious, tense and surprisingly deep, Space Invaders Extreme 2 is the gaming equivalent of a sugar-high. An addictive and compulsive experience, no shoot-em-up fan should pass this one by.
  4. It's Space Invaders, done really well with killer future-retro graphics and gameplay. [Oct 2009, p.82]
  5. Space Invaders Extreme 2 is more balanced and involving than its predecessor. Its intricate combo scoring is more accessible, deeper and more addictive than the first game's, and it has plenty of longevity.

    This is still a brilliant, addictive shooter that will keep you coming back, aiming for that high score.
  7. 67
    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.

    Very good Nintendo DS game. One of my favorites and highly recommend to anyone who like classic gameplay, awesome soundtrack, wifi, multiplayer, briliant score system, and aliens. Collapse
