As promised, i will finally review Aliens Infestation. It toke me a while to do so though. Mainly because i’m the kind of person that want’s to finish a game before i review it.

And if you have watched my video series of Aliens Infestation. Then you know that it toke me 15 epsiodes to reach the very end of the game. But now i’m all done. Anyhow, so what do i think about the game then?

At least he doesn’t need to worry about his stomach pains anymore.

Well, just like i said in the last video of Aliens Infestation. The game was/are better than i thought that it would be. Because i thought that it would be just as bad as Alien 3 for the Mega Drive (that game still haunts me).

But that was not the case (thank the Gaming gods for that). In fact, Way Forward has done a really great job with the game. I’m just a bit angry at myself that it toke me so many years to find out about it (it was released back in 2011).

So, what’s the ups and downs of Aliens Infestation then`? Well, let’s start with the good parts. The graphics looks really good (even though the game is more than 3 years old now), the gameplay experience are top notch for the most part.

And the music are actually (to my surprise) quite good (and scary at times. Which it should be). There are however some game ruining aspects that soils the overal gameplay experience.

The biggest space bit** of them all.

The controllers are for example rather stiff and retarded at times (sometimes the controls don’t even response to your actions). And the gameplay get repeditive at times, one could also argue if it was such a good idea to mix horror and comedy with each other.

And last but not least, Alien Infestation are a very short game (in terms of gameplay hours). I think i finished the game in 4 or 5 hours. So don’t expect a Skyrim size kind of game when you play Aliens Infestation. Because then you will just be disappointed.

But despite the flaws that i just mentioned. Alien Infestation are still a great game in general. So, yes. It´s worth both your time and money. And it also happens to be the latest Alien game that doesn’t suck.
