Conclusion: This is a fully 3-D shooter unlike the Alien Trilogy games which featured only simulated 3-D environments and sprite enemies. It utilizes both analog ticks on the original PS dual shock controller in the way that nearly all console FPS games do now and so it is easy to pick up and play for modern gamers. Although the game is very flawed, its a worthwhile addition to a collectors library because of its attention to atmosphere and its stellar opening level.
Pros: Few games have nailed the Alien(s) atmosphere as well as this sci-fi shooter. The AvP series on the PC still reigns supreme in this department, but consoles had lacked an accurate rendition of the Alien(s) universe until the release of this game.
Cons: Gamers were hearing about this game for years and it was shown as being a third-person adventure title. The release kept being being pushed further and further away until no one cared. It was released it painfully close to the end of the PsOne life cycle. Alien Resurrection could have really benefited from not being based on a movie that was already three years out of the public eye upon the release of the game.

Excerpt: I bought alien trilogy, played it straight away and at the time it was an incredable game good guns, nasty aliens, good fun but now its old the graphics arnt that good so I wanted something new. So I bought Alien Resurection, the 4th generation, there back and they dont mind showing it.
Pros: Good graphics, cool guns, good action .
Cons: Gets slightly repetive, controls are hard to get used to
Excerpt: If any of you have played Alien Trilogy, Alien Resurrection will feel like the same turf. The graphics have been improved, and there are features that make the game unique (you can die from having a chestburster put into you by a facehugger) but its pretty much the same old story. There are facehugging, chestbursting, egg-laying, killing machine aliens about along with trigger happy marines whose sole purpose is to kill you and anything else that doesn't look like them.
Pros: Interesting ways of dying and the aliens provide a very good chill factor for anyone who thrives on surprises jumping out at them from anywhere .
Cons: A lot of skill is needed and so is a mouse . Plus you need to be adaptable to controls as you can't customize your own . (You have numerous options)
Cons: Dopo ben tre anni dall¿uscita del film a cui si ispira, Alien Resurrection arriva finalmente sulla console di casa Sony. Preparatevi dunque ad affrontare decine di mostri ferocissimi nei bui corridoi dell¿astronave Esu Auriga, utilizzando un vasto arsenale di armi e tutta la vostra abilità di videogiocatore perché stavolta vi trovate ad affrontare un nemico molto, molto più pericoloso del solito.
