Space Invaders Extreme 2  - Review

Space Invaders Extreme 2
Ages: Everyone

There are enough new embellishments in this game to temp even those of us who played it when it first came out. And for newbies - there is a setting that provides unlimited cannons. Lots of color in this version. Additional points are awarded for shooting down invaders in a special order - by color, by columns, by rows, by shapes. Power-ups are displayed in colorful "Bingo" styled flashing upper screen with inner and outer frames indicating the different power-ups. There is a wide variety of game play; timed, bingo, multiplayer vs. 2 card play and the download play with a single card. The colors sure beat the black and white version. Space Invaders Extreme 2 is a very similar game to the previous Space Invaders Extreme, except for the Bingo bit and screen filling bosses, so if you have the first one, you probably won't go for number 2 - but the Bingo is pretty nifty.

Fun Factor: It was and still is
Player Friendly: Saves when exiting. A complete and excellent manual.
