Summary: Good looking 2D sprites and backgrounds, looks and plays like a Metroidvania (with Aliens!). I have only played 2 hours, feels very solid, but has not managed to keep me very engaged. 3 stars so far.
Summary: I can't remember where I heard about this game because it didn't get a lot of advertisement, but when I picked up on it I was immediately drawn in. Aliens in a Castlevania/Metroid like 2D scroller shooter! I was pretty excited. I'll first admit that I played all the way through the game, so how bad can it be right? Well I wouldn't say that it was horrible, but it wasn't that good either. Definitely not everything that I had hoped for.

You take control of a platoon of marines who's mission is in protecting the human's from infestation as the Xenomorphs with there lethal acid blood are caving havoc & only your marines are equipped to handle this latest infestation. Liked.

Summary: I'll start by saying, I really really wanted this to be great - sadly it fell short of my expectations... I've had a 3DS for a little while now and thought i'd give this a bash, being a big fan of the Aliens franchise for decades. First and foremost, buying this game pre-owned for £7.99 was about right for the value of the product as if i'd paid more or even full price for this when it came out - I would have been sorely disappointed.
Summary: Firstly this game doesnt get full marks because of the campaign length...it is far too short and those who have maybe looked at the game videos/images may think along the lines of Castlevania and Metroid, and yes it is in the same ball park but this is at heart a very one way game with minor side-exploration. What we have left though is a very rare DS game with true jumpy-moments and tense exploration.
Summary: Those who are familiar with the 2D Metroid games should know what to expect
for this game (especially if they played the rather linear Metroid Fusion), only
with gameplay that tries to feel more ‘realistic’. Aliens Infestation shows a bit of untapped potential, sadly however it
doesn't really show it.
Summary: Vorwort: Man kann den Nintendo DS Handhelden nicht nur als Kinderspielzeug bezeichnen, denn auch Aktionkracher wurden für selbigen entwickelt. Eines dieser Spiele könnte Alien Infestation sein, dass weit vor dem großen Bruder Alien Colonial Marines veröffentlicht wurde, aber sein eigenen Weg geht. Mit ca. 10-15 Euro seid ihr dabei, wenn ihr auch diese fiesen Scheusale vernichten möchtet.
Pros: Sound, Animationen, Steuerung
Cons: mehr an Fans gerichtet, manchmal sehr einheitlich und unübersichtlich
