1UP: Space Invaders Extreme Review

The Xbox 360 port of Extreme still features all the little touches that made it a great revival on the handhelds: the pulsating backgrounds; the rhythmic pattern of your shots; the way a struck enemy will be pushed back -- all viscerally satisfying, just like how Pac-Man Championship Edition uses similar effects to add some "oomph" to an otherwise overdone arcade game. Although it's pretty much the same game (especially compared to the PSP version), Extreme does feature new stage backgrounds using Llamasoft-designed patterns based on the same visualizer engine in the 360's music player. And that's not just a bullet point; the backgrounds are slightly more muted and less busy than the looping video backgrounds in the PSP version, making it better to see what's going on in the chaos of missiles and explosions.

The story is too old to be commented.
