    There's a great game waiting to burst out of the chest of this one, not least with the addition of a proper co-op mode, and we sincerely hope that Team17 gives it another shot in the future. [Issue#104, p.117]

    Mindless shooting is made better with co-op or survival modes.

    The greater focus on third-person sections is also a pleasant diversion (especially when you're outside of the ship) but, realistically, the real problems are the drudgery of constant waypoint-following and the inability to play the campaign mode with a pal.

    Alien Breed Descent is definitely a solid title in all the traditional categories. While it may be a bit repetitious at times, it is hard to argue the value as long as you can handle the monotony.

    It's atmospheric, lengthy and ultimately enjoyable though it does little to build upon its heritage, either of the 1991 original or the two games preceding it.

    Same old same old, then - Alien Breed 3: Descent is not the sequel we were hoping for, dragging the series out rather than building on it. Still, for Alien Breed fanatics, the story will at least provide closure and more of the same.

    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.

    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.

    Looks decent enough and there are a lot of guns, but the weird camera and lack of co-op are a shame.

    Good looking visuals but such an empty game....spending more time looking for something to shoot than running from hoards of extraGood looking visuals but such an empty game....spending more time looking for something to shoot than running from hoards of extra terrestrials which is a shame as this would have been exceptional in the closed confines of a spaceship.. It's more Alien than Aliens if you want to put it into a bracket. Full Review »
