Alien Breed is Back

Game Debate
4 January 2010
  • Excerpt: Back in 1991 Team 17 put out an Amiga game called Alien Breed; a top-down shooter that tapped so hard into the atmosphere of the “Alien” series that it had nerds screaming “They’re coming outta the goddamn walls!” and aping John Hurt’s death scene at least once every level.  18 years after it burst into the world, the developers who would go on to be known as “You know, those Worms guys!
  • Pros: Great Atmosphere, Fun weapons, Brilliant soundtrack
  • Cons: Too short?, A little repetitive, I demand mouse controls!

Alien Breed Evolution Review (XBLA)

12 January 2010
  • Excerpt: What happens when you take 1 part retro gaming, 1 part Dead Space, and 1 part Aliens (sans Sigourney Weaver) and mix them all up in a great big melting pot? Alien Breed Evolution, that’s what. This would have to be the largest (technically and length wise) overhaul of a retro classic to date. So large in fact it has been broken down into a 3 episode release. Alien Breed originally released for the Amiga in 1991 and was widely acclaimed by gamers of the time.

Alien Breed Evolution – Episode 1

Ready Up
30 December 2009
  • Summary: Alien Breed is a top title, it's packed with atmosphere from start to finish, punctuated by beautifully realised comic-strip style sequences. You've got five chapters to go at in Episode One, with more to follow. In the future episodes. At 800 MS points an episode this could get a little pricy but you're getting a really decent bang for your buck here - especially compared to a lot of other 800 point titles.

Video Review: Alien Breed Evolution

23 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Pros: Cons: Verdict: There are a few flaws in Alien Breed Evolution but nothing that’s too difficult to forgive. The game sets atmosphere reasonably well and the presentation is perfect for the style and heritage of the title. It would have been nice to have a few more weapons, enemies and even levels but for a relatively inexpensive downloadable title with further episodes planned I think there is an acceptable amount of content.
  • Pros: Sets a tense atmosphere, Nicely storylined and well presented, Fitting modernisation of a priceless classic
  • Cons: Controls could be a little bit sharper, More weapons and enemy types would be nice, Visual style is generally quite samey throughout

  • Summary: Un altro grande classico emerge oggi dalle ombre del passato sfidando le luci della ribalta, grazie ai ragazzi del Team 17: l’ultima incarnazione dell’amatissima serie “Alien Breed”, sparatutto fantascientifico nato su Amiga nel lontano 1991, ci vede nuovamente nei panni di un marine spaziale alle prese con l’ invasione aliena del proprio vascello è infatti da qualche giorno disponibile su Live-Arcade.Nostalgia a parte, varrà questo remake l’esborso degli 800 Microsoft...
  • Pros: Dead Space... isometrico - Sebbene il paragone risulti obbiettivamente un po’ forzato, la citazione del capolavoro EA è quasi d’obbligo. I titoli in fondo condividono praticamente la stessa ambientazione ed in buona parte anche l’atmosfera: in alcuni casi si ha veramente l’impressione di combattere nuovamente a bordo della Ishimura, grazie ad ambientazioni ben realizzate e suggestive, anche se alla lunga purtroppo poco varie e ripetitive. L’aspetto tecnico, consideran...
  • Cons: Prima vittima dell’invasione - In questi termini mi sentirei di definire la varietà di un gioco davvero troppo, troppo ripetitivo. Frutto della una volontà degli sviluppatori a voler mantenere fede a quello originale, il gameplay non è nulla di più né di meno da quello che mi aspettavo iniziando a giocare, ma se non si voleva farlo nella comunque solida giocabilità, perché non introdurre almeno un po’ di varietà nelle location o nel design degli alieni, praticamente s...

Game-Review: Alien Breed Evolution (PC, PS3 PSN und XBox Live; getestet auf XBox Live)

Alien Breed: Evolution

30 June 2010
  • Conclusion: После , и недавней (да еще, наверное, десятка разномастных проектов от до ) испугать нас не так-то просто. Особенно когда разработчики используют столь шаблонные методы: космический корабль, жукообразные пришельцы, мерцающий свет. И если только про «страшность», то спорю на три зарплаты — она провалится. У нас в гостях игра немного необычная, из рода редкого в наше время — боевик с видом сверху.
  • Pros: красивые графика и анимация; незаезженный жанр; неплохие перестрелки.
  • Cons: скучная беготня взад-вперед по уровню; одинаковые локации и уровни; мало разновидностей пришельцев и типов полезного оружия.
