Aliens: Infestation

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Videogames owe a lot to Aliens . The movie classic gave us the archetypal space marine, then pitted them against a nest full of drooling Xenomorphs, the titular Aliens that have served as a blueprint for so many videogame enemies. It seems poetic, then, that Aliens has finally reclaimed the gameplay it inspired.

Aliens: Infestation review

GamesRadar
23 June 2012
  • Excerpt: For some of us, mapping our way through lonely 2D corridors and slowly accumulating the firepower to put a hole in the moon is the cream cheese to our bagel. It’s a decades-old obsession begun by Metroid and later championed by Castlevania; lately jettisoned to handheld consoles like the GameBoy Advance and Nintendo DS. Without getting too deep into it, if you’re going to ape a certain genus of game design, you could do a lot worse than the Metroidvania style.
  • Pros: Sprite animation is crisp and attractive, Weapons are varied and fun, if too few, Locations from the movies look great
  • Cons: Repetitive level design, Characters are completely interchangeable, Stiff, awkward controls make the early game annoying

Aliens: Infestation

Guide 2 Games
20 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Aliens: Infestation is rated Teen for "Blood, Mild Language, Partial Nudity, Violence." Occasional mild profanity appears as text (no audio). Aliens can be shot and set on fire. They bleed green and may break into pieces when killed. Aliens attack humans (usually no blood), grab onto their faces (no blood), and burst out of their chests (with blood). Humans kill other humans. Lots of dead human bodies everywhere. Suspenseful atmosphere.

  • Excerpt: Alienvania! In space, no one can hear you scream. Up and coming game company Wayforward and Gearbox have created a game where that is a lie. People will hear you scream like a girl. If you are a girl gamer then you will scream like a smaller version of yourself. This game is almost as creepy as the Alien movie franchise.

Aliens: Infestation Review

GameSpot
17 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Aliens: Infestation is much like the xenomorph creatures that populate the game's world: fast, unnerving, and utterly ruthless. It is not a game for the faint of heart. This 2D side-scroller harks back to the golden age of 16-bit games like Metroid and Castlevania, in which there was no hand to guide you, no forgiving checkpoint system, and no regenerating health.
  • Pros: Challenging combat, Great level design makes exploring fun, Chilling Alien atmosphere, Classic movie references will delight fans
  • Cons: Very short, Frustrating lack of checkpoints

  • Conclusion: Aliens Infestation, while it may be a late entry into the DS library is one of the best games to ever grace the system. While it may seem like a title to get fans ready for next year’s Colonial Marines, this game is no slouch. Infestation is some of the most fun you can have on a Nintendo DS. If you are looking for some great 2D action Aliens Infestation is definitely right up your alley.

Vooks
24 October 2011
  • Excerpt: While the 3DS has struggled to garner the same level of enthusiasm that was felt during the launch of the DS, it is slowly gathering momentum, with more and more developers turning their attention to Nintendo’s newest portable console. Because of this, the little beauty that is the DS is on its last legs so to speak.

Aliens: Infestation

Game Revolution
20 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Aliens? Like, Sigourney Weaver? I have a confession to make. As someone who suffers from a condition known as "scary bladder", I have never watched an entire Aliens movie. I've seen bits and pieces, but I couldn't sit through a whole movie… horror movies just make me cringe, and the gorier they are, the further away I want to be.
  • Pros: Characters are fluid and gorgeous, Environments are just as pretty, Easy to pick up and play, Touch screen is, basically, useless, No reason to play through again
