Review of 'Star Raiders II'

Rating:4 User: Alessandro Grussu

Great no-nonsense old-school blasting here in this faux-3D shooter which pits you against an invasion by the evil Xylon empire. If you manage to defend your system planets from the Xylon attack, it will be time to turn the tables on them and destroy their bases!

Graphics and colors do look like they have been literally taken from the old system this game first appeared on, but the frantic pace of the action makes up for that and for the little variation in gameplay. Good ol' alien bashing.
