  1. Contrary to what many hardcore gamers frequently assume, I believe there are still a lot of people who would enjoy this kind of brain-free, white-knuckle virtual leisure activity that brings back the simplicity of earlier days.
  2. Aliens Blast: The Encounter never makes any pretense toward being anything other than it is, a simple straightforward shoot ‘em up extravaganza, and depending upon whether or not this is your cup of tea will be the major factor in your purchase decision.
  3. You’re stuck in your gun turret, firing off your weapons to an endless amount of aliens, and that’s it! There isn’t anything else to do in the game, but blow up aliens in your turret.
