  1. As a no-frills action RPG, this game knows what it is and does what it does exceptionally well in all areas - and I for one couldn't be any more ecstatic over how it turned out.
  2. This game is definitely old-school. AS: V is simple to learn, provides some good exploration, a lot of extermination of aliens, and some laughs along the way. if you're looking for a lite shooter that isn't so serious, check this out.
  3. This game is for a very particular type of gamer. One who liked the movies "Starship Troopers" and "Aliens" and someone who likes shooting holes into giant beasties, there is blood, there is foul language, there is an awful lot of killing, and I for one couldn't be happier. In all honesty, I needed to play this game in order to put some much needed fun into my game time.
  4. Alien Shooter Vengeance is surprisingly fun! It’s brainless shooting at everything that moves with an appealing storyline. A very good combination.
  5. Alien Shooter Vengeance manages to make the whole scale slaughter of thousands of vicious aliens tedious and repetitive.
  6. Alien Shooter may be a one-trick pony, but its mindlessly addictive game play makes it oddly compelling.
  7. Swing and a miss! You can safely skip this one even if they cut the price in half. [May 2007, p.63]

    If you are bored and you just want to blow the shit out of countless aliens then look no further! The only thing this game lacks is stunnig graphics and HD stuffz, but those are not the things that make a game FUN right?

There are more weapons available than in any other game I've played, the variety is massive even within each category and the weapon effects are suitably satisfying. Blowing apart aliens with rocket and grenade launchers, miniguns and energy weapons proved to be stupendously satisfying, and I felt I got more value for my ten dollars than for games that cost five times as much. This game is FUN, FUN, FUN, offers multiplayer support as well as the campaign and Survival modes so there is a ton of replay value here. The story is nothing special, you are a mercenary hired to investigate the goings-on at a facility run by a massive corporation; who they are and what they're doing is shrouded in secrecy and you don't really know what you're walking into until you're face to face with hordes of aliens that want to tear you apart. Luckily, you have your huge arsenal of weapons with which to return the favour, and doing so is nothing short of awesome. Bloody, chunky bits litter the levels once you're done tearing the alien horde a new one, which left me feeling rather satisfied with my handiwork. Levels are separated by relative calm back at your main base of oeprations, which can be used to resupply. New weapons are available after every level, with increasingly potent hardware appearing as you progress. The who, how and what of the back story are slowly revealed throughout the game, and while not the best story ever, it provides a decent context for what you're doing. The RPG elements also add something to the game, with various stats available for boosting which in turn leads to you being a more effective soldier. Boost your intelligence to support better implants which give you stat boosts, up your accuracy to make better use of your ammunition, increase your Minigun and Submachine gun score to equip more powerful guns etc. There is even a perk to be selected at the start of each new game which assists the player in various ways, from making them more observant to a faster learner to a hitpoint vampire etc. At first glance, it is easy to dismiss Alien Shooter: Vengeance as a brainless, stupid shooter, but if you're prepared to look, there is some depth here that adds to the gameplay and replay values. Once you're done with the Campaign, try Survival, a mode which pits you against waves of aliens and which challenges you to survive as long as possible. If that gets a bit much, you can even play the SP campaign co-operatively with a mate, which is as much fun if not more so than playing it alone. Alien Shooter:Vengeance has a LOT to offer gamers that like to blow stuff up and tear aliens to shreds with high-powered weaponry, and is worth far more than the ten dollars you'll pay for it, at least in my opinion. For me, this is one of the most underrated games I've ever played, and if you're looking for something fun, igore the overall mediocre scores the game appears to be getting, and indulge yourself; there's a damn good chance you won't be disappointed and you might even have fun along the way.

    No matter how many monsters were on my screen (engine mentions it support up to 100), the game ran smoothly.

    Every penny I spend on this (now) cheap (in regards to price, not quality) game was worth it.

Guns like an MP5 become useless in a heartbeat by guns that do triple damage with more accuracy very quick. All the gun classes just jump up extremely in power wildly, with the best doing 20x the damage with the same ammo. Everything else is mediocre save for gameplay, which becomes a chore just to see the crap ending. Even at the $10 price this game won't be worth it unless you need a quick fix for a game right away, the fun lasts only a few minutes at a time at the longest. Expand
