I used to get nightmares after playing this game, when I was a kid. I love the absence of the sountrack - The beeping of the motion tracker coupled with the heartbeat in the background, really sent shivers down my spine. Alien: Resurrection is an underrated, forgotten gem of the PS1 era. If you're a fan os survival-horror FPS and like a challenge, give this one a chance. The only thing I'm not a fan of, are the controls.
What's here is still gristly, taut fun, just like most every other Alien game in the past, and for every ten moments of frustration, there's at least as many moments where this game looks and feels just right. Still, that's a horrible ratio.
This was one of my first, if not THE first exposure to graphic violence in video games. The game's made quite well and I like it; it's moody, scary and all that good horror game stuff.
But after playing it recently, it's easy to see that the controls are quite dated. For that reason, I can't recommend playing it today.
