    The action in Alien Breed: Impact is pretty fun, but after a hour of playtime you will see that the game is way too repetitive and that's a shame. The concept is cool, but could have been a lot better.

    Anyone who played the original Alien Breed back in the day will find their simple top-down shooter is all grown up with great lighting effects, an atmospheric soundtrack, and affecting cinematic events.

    Overall, I really liked my time with Alien Breed Impact. I did not play the original game back in the day, so I honestly do not have anything to compare it to, but I really had some fun with this fast paced action shooter.

    Alien Breed: Impact is a love letter to all the things that inspired the designers, but apparently they forgot to flirt with fun. Unless you still boot up your Amiga to play the original, don't waste time when there are better games in the genre.
  5. The game is good; fans of tense, methodical dual stick shooters will probably really enjoy it. It's just a shame that the wider-reaching problems weren't addressed.
  6. There's no incentive to save the Leopold and her crew from destruction, and playing through the game feels more like a chore than a challenge. It's a valiant attempt at reinvigorating an old franchise, but one that ultimately fails to make an impact.
  7. Alien Breed: Impact successfully blends the atmosphere of a survival horror title with the action of classic arcade shooters, and despite some small flaws the game comes highly recommended.

    with the release of alien breed three on psn, and end of its trilogy i thought i would give the first one a go round see if anything was there. it is a dual stick move with left aim with right...its creepy, and dark, aliens drop and come out the ground. i'm skittish already and aliens are faster than zombies, it starts slow on do this, go here missions. you are on a crashed ship put out fires via computer terminal shutdowns so you go there, shut it down shoot aliens, buy weapons or bullets, decent story, a little lackluster graphically but overall enjoyable ....8 Full Review »

    As a whole the Alien Breed trilogy does a good job at providing intense moments of action and suspense with its eerie environment and surprise alien ambushes, but beyond that it is pretty much an average top-down shooter. If the developers would have added more boss battles and a little more variety in their game mechanics they could have had a solid hit. Full Review »
