  1. Repetitiveness aside, the plot and the action both heat up enough to make it worth pushing through another round of bug stomping--at least one last time. [May 2011, p.87]

    So if you are looking for a quick alien fix that isn't overly expensive and is a gaming classic then this trilogy is best suited for you. The game would of warranted a higher score if it had not been for the camera issue and slight lack of re-playable time, overall decent game.

    For a budget game it's hard to quibble at what's a sturdy if unimaginative old school shooter, but its stubborn faith in the original template only goes to show how far we've come.

    Feels as formulaic as ever. [Issue#204, p.97]

    A solid dual-stick shooter, but it does have a few annoying flaws that keep it from being great. The plot is interesting, but poorly executed. Thankfully the lengthy solo campaign, co-op missions, and Survival Mode make it worth the price of entry.

    Alien Breed 3: Descent is a game that disappears between all of the other shooters. The game does almost nothing new compared to the previous titles and doesn't stand out. However, if you can't get enough of shooting up aliens old school style, then Alien Breed 3: Descent is worth your nine bucks.
  7. Decent, but no improvement on the (now cheaper) earlier games. [May 2011, p.117]

    To flip an old cliché on its head: fans of the series should stay far, far away from the finale of the Alien Breed trilogy, which has been on a downward slide since part one. Once again you're in space, shooting aliens from a top-down perspective, only this time there's glass that can be shattered and the whole game glows slightly orange. Gasp! The claustrophobic atmosphere of impact has been shelved in favour of throwing endless hoards of aliens and busywork at you. Decent, but no improvement on the (now cheaper) earlier games. Collapse
