  • Summary: I bought this game because it was on sale and decided to give it a try without spending too much for . Story is intresting told trough drawings fully shaded and drawn out with voice work , game play is fun , so would I pay more than 10 bucks for it no but less than that and its a good deal for a Psp game .

Very good

  • Summary: I like the game, the story is a bit old, but it's good. Really makes you think attack strategies to advance each of the game levels.

Control issues

  • Summary: I like the idea of a Diablo game in space but there's not a lot to love about this game. It all works OK, but not seamlessly. You use the PSP's stick to move around but you cannot easily direct your fire. You fire which ever way you are facing. It is all too awkward and drains the fun out of the game. It doesnt help that the camera is too close to see your enemies approaching so that you can plan an attack.

Decent, buy if its cheap.

Zeroske , GameStop

  • Summary: The graphics and style of game play may look fun, but after you get most the way through the game, its very repetitive (Thats coming from a person who plays Runescape at times). The drops are all too much alike, the game is fairly customizable though, I must admit that is a decent part to this game... Sadly the unique drops aren't good enough to keep hunting for them as much as you'd need to. I say this is an average game, and at a cheap price, I would recommend it.

New and improved version of the original

Benjamin H. Riley, Amazon
18 March 2010
  • Summary: Not a bad game. Similar to the original with many more user options. Not the most straight forward layout and menu options though. Found the equiptment and hardware options to be a little difficult to navigate and follow...

User Review

  • Summary: a bit of a guilty pleasure. a sci-fi setting for what's basically a dungeon-crawler is rare, and creates a mix of arcade-shooting and action roleplaying that's unique and decently-executed. the role-playing elements (character-creation and skills) have minor impact on the actual gameplay, but the range of weapons, armour is pretty impressive. unfortunately, it all boils down to the same strafe-and-shoot gameplay mission through mission.

Simple Sci-Fi Diablo Clone

Jason McKendry "Growing old is easy. Growing ..., Amazon
23 May 2008
  • Summary: This is sort of a rare style of game, a dungeon crawler with sci-fi flavors instead of the more traditional swords-and-sorcery feel. It features ad hoc multiplayer support, though I haven't had a chance to use that yet.* Characters and game states are saved separately, though they are paired in a single file. (I have two characters, and after loading one from either of two files, I am them prompted to load the game state from either file, or start a new game.

A pleasant PSP title with decent controls, for a change

Bob Manson, Amazon
15 November 2007
  • Summary: Alien Syndrome PSP is one of the better titles for the platform, but only if you don't mind a game with a bit of tedium and repetitiveness. I was expecting something like the remake on the Sega Arcade Classics disc for the PS2 (an excellent game in its own right) but this is a totally new game with only a few tie-ins with the original arcade version. You only see the worm creatures a few times, for example; most of the aliens and weapons are entirely new designs.

D&D Meets "Alien"

E. L. Sapp "vtcheme", Amazon
29 July 2007
  • Summary: In a way, this is a typical dungeon crawl - start a level, kill everything, pick up loot. The difference is that you are on an alien-filled spaceship and your only companion is an indestructible floating robot that can shoot the creatures and (depending on what attachments you put on it) shoot them better, heal you or recharge your shield batteries. It can also destroy loot you don't want and manufacture stuff you do.
