    Alien Breed 3: Descent is a frantic and entertaining conclusion to the series.

    A good end to the trilogy that unfortunately lacks big changes to the first two parts. Alien Breed 3: Descent shows off with polished graphics but offers only a very shortlived experience.

    Alien Breed 3: Descent is basically the same game as its prequels: nothing really changed. If you liked parts one and two you'll feel right at home here as well.

    It isn't perfect. It gets repetitive. Most of your time is spent in the same environment fighting a few bug types. And spending 20 minutes and not making much progress can induce a controller throw (or two). But the little touches - like noticing a swarm of small bugs scurrying away from a body as your flashlight interrupts their munching - immerse you fully into the experience.

    Throw in a few surprise touches--like a flooded compartment and a spacewalk on the ship's hull--and Descent manages to provide the suspense that its predecessors didn't. [Feb 2011, p.79]

    With Descent, Team 17 finishes notably its trilogy of remakes. This is a good arcade game with some interesting new features.

    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 »
