Recently, I had the honour of reviewing Space Invaders Extreme, a very enjoyable and interesting remake of the classic Space Invaders. Space Invaders Extreme featured a brilliant soundtrack that changed as you played the game and made the game feel really engaging, as well as upped the ante to make the gameplay faster and more accessible today.
When I picked up Arkanoid DS, made by the same company in similar vein, I couldn't help but feel extremely disappointed. It's bland, unimaginative and does nothing to make itself more accessible today. It really makes you wonder HOW Taito could put so much effort into one of their arcade revivals and almost no effort into another."
