The One for ST Games
Super Space Invaders is one of those products that usually comes along once a year, has a very strange and unique idea and fails to pull it off. If you really want a bit of nostalgia, grab a couple of 10ps and find an old arcade version.
ST Format
[Budget re-release] Despite the fact that the coin-op was a success, if you're under 19 you're likely to think SSI looks dated and boring. If you're older you may overcome by nostalgia and part willingly with our tenner. Cry before you buy.

Fazit: Eine Konvertierung, die etwas schlechter als das Original ist, aber trotzdem Spaß macht. Für Ballerfreaks!
ST Format
Frankly, it could have been better. Although the original game was a classic, it was just a teeny-weeny bit boring after 15 or so games. Unfortunately, although this new version has many more interest-holders, there's still not enough to make this a just-one-more-go affair. The long, unskippable sequences at the start and between games don't help either. Invaders purists will be horrified at the sacrilege done to their game. New game-players will probably wonder what in space all the fuss was about to begin with. Perhaps the Invaders have been gone for just too long to undergo a successful reincarnation.
Power Play
Domark hat sich wahrlich Mühe gegeben, den Oldie zeitgemäß aufzurüsten. Ihr albern-amüsantes Intro und die animierten Zwischensequenzen geben dem Programm einen sympathischen Touch, können aber nicht über ein mittelprächtiges Spiel hinwegtäuschen. Space-Invaders-Fans werden's mögen, alle anderen lassen sich auch von den neuen Features nicht überzeugen. Super Space Invaders ist ein nettes, mit viel Zuwendung ausgedachtes Produkt, das an moderne Actionspektakel trotzdem nicht heranreicht. Dafür ist es schon von der Grundidee her zu beschränkt. Nostalgie-Freaks sollten sich's allerdings zulegen - ich werd's zumindest tun.
