  1. At a $20 price point, Space Invaders Extreme is an absolute steal for DS/PSP owners out there. There's a lot of hidden depth to the single player experience, and you'll get a decent amount of use from the multiplayer aspect as well.

    Extreme's wonderfully remixed gameplay comes at you in fluid, seamless waves that offer a surprising amount of freedom and replay value.
  3. No matter what kind of gamer you are, you need this in your PSP library.
  4. Simplicity incarnate, but, amazingly, turns the age old concept of left, right and fire into a strategic masterclass. [Sept 2008, p.78]
  5. A brilliant little gem to help while away a sweaty Summer.
  6. Somehow, Taito and Square Enix managed to take a 30-year old formula and inject new life into the classic shooter to make this one seriously addictive game for gamers both young and old school.
  7. Perhaps an online component would have improved on this, but as it is, it's only half of the game, albeit a pretty entertaining half.
