4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the beginner 27 Oct. 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is a serious challenge. The basic plot is that you are sent to explore a great hulk of a ship to find out what has happened. There are strange readings on board and you have to investigate. you take control of a group of four soldiers. Don't think however that you can become attached to them. One of the nice things about this game is that when a soldier dies (and he is not rescued) you will need to scour the labrynth like ships to find a replacement. After you complete the first level the real game begins. you jump from ship to ship exploring the tight passageways and clostraphobic tunnels. The music gives a level of tension not often found on the ds. This is added to even more by the fact that this game is not a blast everything that moves type. Its a good 20 minutes before you meet your first alien. And they are tough. They have a habit of jumping out on you and can give you a very bad day. You may walk for a good few minutes with nothing happening before an alien jumps down to greet you, keeping you on your toes. There are facehuggers drones security robots all manner of enemies. And of course the queen. The queens are spectaculaly tough and take a huge amount of firepower to bring down. Firepower that is limited. This game is old school difficult. If you are new or unused to games of this type then it is not for you. But if you like a challenge to really get your teeth into then you will LOVE this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid Game but way too short 25 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Firstly this game doesnt get full marks because of the campaign length...it is far too short and those who have maybe looked at the game videos/images may think along the lines of Castlevania and Metroid, and yes it is in the same ball park but this is at heart a very one way game with minor side-exploration.

What we have left though is a very rare DS game with true jumpy-moments and tense exploration. Its hard to imagine that a side scrolling game could offer such an atmosphere but it certainly had me on the edge of my seat more than a couple of times. This is of course an Aliens game so it does live true to the theme of the overall series.

The game picks up after the events of James Camerons' Aliens. The Sulaco is found adrift in space and a new group of Marines are sent in to investigate and find out what happened to the former mission team. You begin on the Sulaco with a four man team of marines, in this case the marines, although you can choose one, act as your lives. Once the health bar is depleted you lose a marine - pretty smart - and as a plus side you can actually stage a rescue mission to retrieve them should you wish. Scattered around the environments you will find other marines who will, at some point join you if you are short of men. Save rooms are very scarce on this game, so it pays to treat every encounter with some strategy as the marines are in short supply - 19 in total throughout the game. Although the game plays like a hardcore shooter - think contra - with Castlevania exploration and map - you will be constantly under pressure to retrace your steps to recent save rooms and re-stock on ammo and health and venture out again to tackle the tougher encounters. I must empathise that the level of tension becomes quite high as you get into deep water.

3.0 out of 5 stars A disappointed fan 7 April 2013
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I'll start by saying, I really really wanted this to be great - sadly it fell short of my expectations...

I've had a 3DS for a little while now and thought i'd give this a bash, being a big fan of the Aliens franchise for decades. First and foremost, buying this game pre-owned for £7.99 was about right for the value of the product as if i'd paid more or even full price for this when it came out - I would have been sorely disappointed.

I'm trying to keep specific references vague for purposes of spoilers, but I apologise if I do give anything away.

Summary:-

For those of you old enough to remember games like Alien 3 or Metroid on the Super Nintendo (a long time ago), it bears a lot of similarity in the way that its a side scrolling shoot em up - it has a map of the location you are in on the lower screen and the gameplay takes place on the top.

You wander around various locales, exploring the map, finding new weapons like smart guns or flamethrowers or equipment such as flashlights or welding torches to open doors - all very in keeping with the genre...finding access cards to unlock new areas, etc...
You begin the game with 4 marines, but sadly each one of them is a stereotype in some fashion (from the unhinged guy, the glasses wearing dork marine, the sad marine, the cool and calm veteran, etc) and because you go through these characters like they're going out of fashion, its hard to be bothered at all when any one of them dies...and this will happen a lot (mainly around boss fights)...however, you pick up more marines as you go - so its not too hard to keep going. At first, I tried to keep the original four alive, then I realised it didn't make any difference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old School 'run and gun' 15 Feb. 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Fantastic fun, the kind you remember from the 16 bit days. It's really difficult, which is a good thing. Using individual marines in your squad as 'lives' is a neat touch, especially considering the individualism of each of them, which is nicer than just a meaningless heart container. The fact that you can only have four squad member at any time gives the game an added level of difficulty, especially during the incredibly hard boss battles. As previously mentioned the replayability is pretty low as the game is linear, however don't let that discourage you from what is a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The atmosphere is amazing from the very beginning. If you like the films and old games then I can promise you this game is loads of fun. You may only get one play through, but at the current price I'd say it's worth every penny!
