    Alien Breed is a decent package and great love letter to a classic arcade game but that’s all it manages to be. The inclusion of multiplayer goes a long way to make this package worth the price but if you are looking for something more in depth you may want to look elsewhere.

    There is simply a ton of content, with the original game, the expanded edition, and three extra level packs.

    It may be the same old game with a new coat of paint and some online multiplayer options, but the game still has some legs under it after more than two decades; it plays as good as ever.

    Alien Breed is a bit of a dinosaur now, but its new coat of paint definitely helps to give it a new lease of life.

    You pay only 8 euros for a good game refreshment.of game history. Not the best game to get, but good for some hours.

    The enhanced visuals and local and online co-operative multiplayer are welcome additions, but everything else feels a little bit outdated, with a distinct lack of variety in enemies and objectives in particular making the levels bland and monotonous by today's standards.

    The ability to switch between classic and HD visuals is a brief curiosity, but nothing more. [May 2013, p.81]

    It’s a shame that such smooth controls, great audio and classic visuals were wasted on a game that is just so outdated.

    Some things get better with age, but Alien Breed is not one of them.

    NOT FUN. I played the Mini, the PS Mobile and this full Vita release and this is the best version and the best value for the money with the most content. Don't get the PS Mobile release as it tries to gouge you for extra money. I have no nostalgia for Alien Breed so I played it just like any other game and I don't like it. Trying to navigate a 2D maze that will sometime end and then you have to backtrack is NOT FUN. Dying because a enemy spawns on to of you is NOT FUN. Running out of ammo and trying to find some in a maze that has dead ends is NOT FUN. Maybe this was fun back in the day but I did not enjoy it. Full Review »
