Pilot Your Own Star Fighter       Product Reviews

There is more to Defender than shooting the Manti invaders. It is a strategy game that tests your abilities to fly a range of fighters and shooting Manti while strategically saving colonists and using tanks and missle crawlers to win battles. The games starts you out in a training school and then you advance to mission status. Each mission is on a new planet with great environments. Some of the later missions are extremely hard and can be a little frustrating, but usually that is because you need to tweek your strategy. The mulitplayer format makes this game a ton of fun to play with someone else and my son and I have really enjoyed it.
Defender Next Generation       Product Reviews

I remember the original game in the arcade (at which I was never very good) and the Atari 800 version (at which I was pretty good.) Overall this is a good game. Decent graphics. I like that it incorporates much of the original game's sound effects. A better point of view during game play would be appreciated.
You Should Really Buy This Game!       Product Reviews

This game is the best! You are one of two ships at the start of the game and get more as the game goes on. Eventually you get a fleet of six hyper-powerful ships ready to take on the head of the Manti invation force, The Manti Queen. (To tell parents, It Shoudn't be rated T. The worst part is when little green bugs pick up people in spacesuits.)If you like games like Starfox 64, Rouge Squadron (Star Wars), or F-Zero AX, this is the game for you.
Fun and challenging.       Product Reviews

This game is really well thought out. Take the old Defender, put it in 3D and here it is. It is at times difficult but in an "I'll get it next time" sort of way. I love the differences between the available ships. Different ships require different playing styles. Some will want to stick to just one while some like me will have fun playing them all. Not to mention that the ships are all upgradable which is a plus in any game. It is even possible to go back and play old missions once you fully finish the game so you can have fun going back and taking on the old missions with your fully upgraded ships. The strategic aspects with the colonist and ground unit placement is a wonderful transistion from the old game to the new. This is NOT a game for someone who doesn't like to think about stuff before they do it. The last level can get pretty hectic and you will probably fail a few times before successfully completing it. The multiplayer mode is a nice addition as well. My only dissapointment is that it was all over a little too soon. I say rent it first, either you will love it or you will hate it. It all depends on you.
