    Alien Breed offers fans much more than just a re-release. With an updated version of the game, online co-op, cross play between the PS3 and Vita and universal level and gun unlocks, players can enjoy the game in just about any way they want. If you’ve never played the game before it’s probably not the best use of your money, but fans will enjoy the ability to relive their memories while also creating new ones.

    Despite Alien Breed’s shortcomings, it still holds the charm of a bygone era. The new level packages, while not quite as extensive as the original Breed or its special edition release, provide more than enough content to justify the $10 PSN price tag.

Normally I'm a pretty big fan of top down shooters, but the slow plodding pace that is supposed to simulate the Aliens films just doesn't work in this genre. Neither does item management. Look elsewhere in the genre if you want to have a good time. Full Review »
