    I think that this game should be in the top ten in the US because it's the best space game aside from Staarlancer (created by dreamcast).

    Actually kind of hard...I'm still stuck on the first levels!

    Luis is an idiot. This game is most definately not a 10 out of 10. Jedi Starfighter is better in playability and the controls for rolling and maneuvering are better. Does he work for Midway or something?

    Solid campaign modes, gameplay variety, and visuals make this a must-buy. [Dec 2002, p.42]
  2. Like "Spy Hunter" before it Defender is a remarkable update that both satisfies old and new gamers alike with its flash graphics and basic old-skool blasting.

    It's nothing entirely new, but you'll have a good time doing it. [Nov 2002, p.75]
