I couldn't have asked for a better game than 8-Bit Invaders to conclude the franchise with. From its sci-fi themed music and aesthetics to its blatant 'Alien' inspired units, the final game in the franchise offers the best balancing, the most explosive wars, and the more accessible adventure for new players. Whether playing on your own as you work through the campaigns or if you grab a mate and do co-op or multiplayer, there are many hours of enjoyment to be found here, many more if you own more than one of the games. The online with strangers side is still very quiet, which is a shame, but if you're playing with your mates then it's a fun experience. 8-Bit Invaders would be the game I recommend everyone who likes the look of the franchise starts out with, followed by 8-Bit Armies and then 8-Bit Hordes.
The latest 8-Bit strategy game isn't without its shortcomings, but its offer of streamlined, accessible, Starcraft-esque retro RTS combat is no less tempting than those that came before it.
Despite a few setbacks, 8-bit invaders brings back the joyful memories of classic real time strategy games and if you are a fan of the genre, you'll probably enjoy it.

Stands out purely on aesthetics and is fueled by nostalgic charm, but lacks any staying power or complexity. 8-bit Invaders is a good pick for fans of the genre or beginners who want to get into RTS, but is otherwise unfulfilling.
