  1. Getting from one point on the map to another uses about six brain cells, leaving the rest to bitch about the boring weapons and enemies. [Nov 2007, p.83]
  2. Alien Syndrome had the potential to be a decent by-the-numbers action RPG, but it struggles to even reach those heights with insipid repetition and a total lack of challenge crippling your incentive to see it beyond the first few hours.
  3. The two-player cooperative mode may keep a duo of youngsters quiet for a handful of weekends, but otherwise this mismatched game has very little to offer.
  4. Trouble is, whichever character you pick, the game ends up largely the same. [Nov 2007, p.112]
  5. Alien Syndrome is an all around terrible resurrection of a fun (albeit shallow) arcade game.
  6. 35
    Never does Alien Syndrome become fun -- and unlike the Wii version, the PSP iteration doesn't even control well enough to become quietly engaging in its own methodical, repetitive way.

    Played for an hour, but it's clearly lacks fun.
