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 enjoyed this game. It's been a long while since I played a good side scroller, or a good Aliens game for that matter. This game is the best of both worlds. A perfectly functional side scroller and an excellent game based on the Aliens franchise. I'll have to agree with many of the reviews below; BETTER THAN COLONIAL MARINES! Sad to say, but it's true. This game is very simple as is the story that comes with it.
Summary: Aliens: Infestation is a true metroidvania-esque adaptation of the Aliens universe. it s so damn hard and unforgiving but it s really well done, so if you like a challenge (ie. metroid, castlevania, dark souls, etc.), then you d probs like this game. you have four squad members to cycle through and they are, as far as i know, permadeath. be careful! the vendor sent me a brand new , undamaged copy!
