So if you read reviews, you may have heard that Space Invaders Extreme is good. This is not true. It is very, very good. Amazingly good. If you're in the mood for an inexpensive arcade shoot-em-up, you can't go wrong. My highest recommendation.

Sorry I am late in responding to this, but I was in the store today looking at this and then read this thread. So, James, what makes this worth my $20? Why should I part with my money for this arcade game? Convince me!

Also, how does it compare to the N64 Space Invaders (the last one I played, probably)?

First, CRZ, I have no idea about N64 Space Invaders.

As for Extreme, it's... trippy? I don't know if that's a good way to describe it. Basically, they kept the core gameplay intact (move left/right only; shoot aliens and move left and right as they descend), but they sped it up and added new enemies (supersize aliens, bosses), new weapons (lasers, bombs), mid-game challenges... all pretty basic remake stuff. But the game just looks and sounds fantastic. The way the in-game sound effects blend with the background music, it almost comes across like a rhythm game of sorts. It's stupidly addictive.

It would be worth it at full price, so as a discount title, it's a steal. It's not the best value-for-dollar game ever (that would be Fire Pro Wrestling Returns for the PS2), but it might come in second place.

Some gameplay footage is available on YouTube.

Pre-order Zelda and get two free games (I think its Zelda 64: Ocarina of Time and the Japanese Expansion of said game. Its the 1st N64 Zelda game.)
