Games Played 10/22/2008

*Collecting all the cards is hard because they are rewarded randomly at the end of a match. I am determined to get them all!


Space Raiders (2004)
Developer: Taito Corp.
Platform: Nintendo GameCube
Purchase Date: 2004

Don't let your eyes deceive you: This IS Space Invaders!

This year's release of Space Invaders Extreme was not Taito's first attempt to revive the classic shooter. In 2004, they released... Space Raiders. The game definitely plays like its predecessor, only much faster and much more varied. The whole thing seems a bit weird and forced - it's bewildering why they just didn't stick with the player controlling a ship... Taito did eventually come to their senses with Extreme. You can't blame them for sticking with a solid 2D gameplay design though.

LIBRARY STATUS: 3 out of 5
