Review: Space Invaders Infinity Gene (PS3/360) photo
Review: Space Invaders Infinity Gene (PS3/360)
by Colette Bennett

If you have an iPhone, you may have played Space Invaders Infinity Gene when it came out late last year. Why are we excited about a port then, you ask? Why, HD, of course. That, and the ability to use a gamepad rather than your iPhone's touchscreen. Kind of brings the whole experience from "awkward" to "awesome" (although I do admit the iPhone version is really good for a no-controller game). And since I am an admitted addict to downloadable content, I volunteered to be the first to lay my mitts on this stylish new version of the game.

Based on the concept of evolution, Infinity Gene opens with the iconic intro level to the game you remember from the arcade, but soon morphs into an entirely different animal, challenging the player to earn upgrades and eventually go sailing from a flat playing field into a three dimensional world of brilliant vector-levels. Sound like your cup of tea? Hit the jump, and we'll help edge you towards your own evolution.
