Aliens: Infestation (DS)

 

Aliens: Infestation is much like the xenomorph creatures that populate the game's world: fast, unnerving, and utterly ruthless. It is not a game for the faint of heart. This 2D side-scroller harks back to the golden age of 16-bit games like Metroid and...

Lots of playable characters ; Metroidvania style fits the game ; Creepy atmosphere ; Solid controls

Constantly respawning enemies ; No diversity in play style of characters

Aliens: Infestation is an unforgiving and exciting retro romp.

Challenging combat ; Great level design makes exploring fun ; Chilling Alien atmosphere ; Classic movie references will delight fans

Very short ; Frustrating lack of checkpoints

The game's challenging nature means it takes a few attempts to make it through the campaign, but even then you can finish it in around four hours, which is disappointingly short. There's little reason to play through it again either, with no...

The Aliens franchise has always been one of my favorites and while there have been many attempts at an Aliens game there has been little success

Aliens Infestation, while it may be a late entry into the DS library is one of the best games to ever grace the system. While it may seem like a title to get fans ready for next year’s Colonial Marines, this game is no slouch. Infestation is some of...

Game over man! Game over!

Successfully recreates the dread filled atmosphere of ?Aliens?, death has meaning, great characterization

Non-xenomorph enemies seem out of place, autosaves can be painful, difficult at times

For all the game does well, there are a few low points. Boss battles are the usual patterned affair and once you?ve been down a certain corridor, experience plus your motion tracker lets you know what?s coming and from where it will spring. The...

With Metroid as its inspiration, Infestation has a lot to live up to.

Exploring the Sulaco is fun ; Finding marines and weapon upgrades is rewarding ; Great weapon variety

Lacks enemy and area variety ; No replay value to speak of ; The combat gets repetitive

So buying this game! :cool;

Review: Aliens: Infestation

 

As a franchise, Aliens is a bit of an iffy proposition. Before 20th Century Fox decided to stick xenomorphs with yajuta in the Aliens vs. Predator film series, we got Aliens: Resurrection, a film so bad that it nearly sunk the entire franchise. That...

Aliens? Like, Sigourney Weaver?

Characters are fluid and gorgeous; Environments are just as pretty; Easy to pick up and play

Touch screen is, basically, useless; No reason to play through again
