  1. Nintendo Power
    Three versions of the first side-scrolling shooter give Defender for the GBA old-school flair. [Feb 2003, p.160]
  2. There are too many "button" needs to limit yourself to such a tiny panel of controls. You really need to stand back and SEE what's going on. You must have very quick fingers to survive for long.
  3. A distinct lack of pace (something that made the original so absorbing) also makes the action far less exciting than it should be.
  4. Pocket Games
    The main part of the game is a complete mockery of the Defender franchise. [Spring 2003, p.31]
