Summary: Advertised as a solid Metroidvania. While you do need specific equipment to advance, and there is backtracking, the basic combat feels like 6 butts stuffed inside 4 butts. In other words, it's aight.
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.
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.

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!
