    Aliens: Fireteam Elite (finally) proves that a great game based on the Alien films is possible in the modern era. A solid story, amazing action, deep customization, and intense battles make this one of the best adaptations of the franchise to date.

    Aliens Fireteam Elite is the quality shooter that Aliens fans have been wishing for for decades now. The story may feel a little disconnected from the film that inspired it but the action is great, it gets the details right and we're going to be playing it over and over for a long time.

    A nice cooperative shooter with a great atmosphere and plenty of customization possibilities.Its only flaw is that its mechanics end up being quite repetitive, but if you get together with two friends you will have a great time killing aliens.

    Whilst Aliens: Fireteam Elite is lacking in some areas, and is not without its frustrations, it is a solid third-person survival shooter. The story won't pull you in, but the core gameplay is satisfying, fun, and addictive and that is what will ultimately keep you coming back. There is something here for fans of third-person shooters and Alien fans alike.

    Aliens: Fireteam Elite is a proposal that, in general terms, we have loved for its fidelity to the Alien movies and because it does not seek to be anything more than an action experience a la Left 4 Dead, already with built-in improvements that can be seen in Back 4 Blood, to kill aliens without stopping. However, it could have been much more and bring some variety to not always be the same. Still, if you are fans of the movie saga you can't let it escape.

    Aliens: Fireteam Elite is an online co-operative action title that exudes love for the franchise on which it is based, that doesn't aspire to revolutionise anything and that has, in its simplicity, its main virtues and defects. As accessible and satisfying as it is repetitive. A perfect videogame to enjoy in company. Immediate fun that will also delight fans of the second film installment of the franchise. A pity it doesn't take more risks and is so predictable in almost everything it does.

    Aliens: Fireteam Elite has an interesting premise: co-op shooter set in the Alien universe where players must push their abilities, refine their build, and face a continuous onslaught of enemies. In reality, though, it’s a bug-filled slog that proves to be a one-trick pony.

    I never compare games in my reviews, but I can’t deny how similar this game is to The Division, mainly it’s expansion, Underground, whichI never compare games in my reviews, but I can’t deny how similar this game is to The Division, mainly it’s expansion, Underground, which focused on PvE. The Division is one of my favorite games ever, so my comment isn't an insult. With the bullet sponge enemies, high difficulty, tactical abilities, stat modifying weapon attachments, and overall feel of the game, the comparison is hard to ignore.

    This game is clearly meant to played in a group, even on Standard difficulty. Bots aren’t useless but take a lot of avoidable damage and often stand still. The story is forgettable and the dialog is abysmal. Finding intel unlocks lore but I stopped caring almost immediately.

    This game shines with its upgradable classes and pure fun gameplay. You will be repeating missions and mindlessly shooting down hordes of xenomorphs but you're always progressing. The perks and weapons you unlock are worthwhile and accommodate many playstyles. Dozens of relentless enemies fill the screen and come from everywhere. Most encounters are intense, leaving you with a "Who's next?!?!" attitude when its over. The end of the last mission is outstanding, so much so, my friend saved a clip and kept rewatching it lol.

    I was looking for a co-op game with the potential to be played indefinitely and despite being a budget game, it has filled that void nicely. - 7.5

    PS: I love that there are 2 modern games that capture the spirit of the first 2 movies in this franchise and are properly named.

    Decent game, I had fun for the first couple of hours. It certainly does get repetitive, even on co-op mode. More often than not, in Co-opDecent game, I had fun for the first couple of hours. It certainly does get repetitive, even on co-op mode. More often than not, in Co-op you're teamed up with some goon that plays 5+ hours a day that expects you to know the ins and outs off the bat, rushing ahead and getting pummeled because he acts like he has something else better to do. Y'know, typical co-op randoms BS.
    The other thing that annoys me about this game, is that in solo mode you can't pause the game. You'd think by now that developers would realize this totally sucks when playing solo, but I guess thats why this game is priced the way it is.
    It does remind me of Gears of War Hoard mode (which I haven't played honestly in over 10 years now), so, if you're into non stop waves of enemies popping out at nearly every moment, this game is for you.
    Personally, I like games that can pace itself properly, allow you to pause in solo mode, and don't team you up with wannabe Spider-mans that expect you to read their minds for strategic advantage. Definitely a rental unless you have a couple friends that are into this kinda thing.

I wasn’t expecting much from this game but was really surprised. Me and my friend haven’t been able to stop playing! Lots of replay-ability and only £30!

    Editing this a Little while in… dropped from an 8 to a 5 due to zero endgame and the hard difficulties being near impossible with zero reward. Fun whilst it lasted tho.
