If you like Aliens get it now, good 2d shooter similar to Alien 3

Summary: Does anyone remember an SNES game called Alien 3? It was non-canon because it took place on the prison planet in Alien 3 but used the taped-together gun from Aliens and had tons of the critters around when the movie Alien 3 only had a single Xeno. But forget canon, at the time it was a great game that mashed up the gameplay of Contra with a tiny bit of map exploration like Metroid and had quests that sent you here and there and whatnot.
Summary: If you like Metroid or Castlevania you will enjoy this game. Great gameplay mechanics, ultimately only hampered by its short length. My only other complaint is the poor implementation/ effect of some weapons, but that's a minor quibble.
Summary: I was excited about this game, and was happy with my purchase! There aren't a lot of aliens games out there. I'm aware of the old 80's konami arcade game, (which i loved!) and Colonial Marines, which was a huge letdown for many fans of the franchise. I know there have been other alien titles such as the aliens trilogy on ps1, or alien 3 on snes and genesis. But not many revolved around the baddest soldiers in the galaxy, the Colonial Space Marines.

Summary: This game is awesome. It's a 2D Aliens game for fans of the films, complete with marines, all the classic weapons, the power loader, the Sulaco, alien environments, several breeds of xenomorphs, a corrupt corporation, an EVA mission, and a hefty challenge! Highly recommended!
Summary: Excellent side scrolling shooter that goes back to the good old days of gaming. Great graphics, fun game play. The DS's last big hurrah before the 3DS took over but that doesn't mean you shouldn't play this immediately.
Summary: I really like this game, it is a very refreshing metroidvania style game. I think that it could use some work though. First there is barely any reason for exploration. Second there are interchangeable weapons in the game, but they are either overpowered or extremely weak. Otherwise, this is a pretty decent game.
