    The arcade version brought to your pocket, Space Invaders can get tiresome however.

    This game is one played for either nostalgia or for one who must constantly play their favorite game, everywhere. The Game Boy descendant captures the same screen graphics as the original only in grayscale and this unch... Read Full Review

    Space Invaders wants you to destroy aliens in formation. Do it.

    Space Invaders! Most people have heard of it. Hell, most people have played it. But what is it that makes this game so special? It's difficult to know where to start. This is one of the classic retro games of the 70's... Read Full Review

    Sticks and stones can break my bones, but Space Invaders will never hurt me.

    The good: Released before its prime, one of the best arcade games ever, highly addictive The bad: Most of its rereleases and sequels sucked. You know how Pong started the video game industry? Well Space Invaders star... Read Full Review

    Old School!

    It is a perfect copy of the original arcade version but it still great. For those of us who had pong as out first system, Space Invaders was like jumping from a Nintendo 64 to an Xbox 360. The graphics were cutting ... Read Full Review
