Summary: The Amiga classic gets a solid reboot - Evolution has some great graphics for a top down arcade shooter and a decent soundtrack which creates a good survival horror atmosphere . The only real fault is the simple and repetitive nature of the gameplay - with too heavy a focus on collecting items and flipping switches than actually blasting the nasty alien bugs ! 6/10 , or 7/10 if you managed (like me) to grab it at the sale of the week price of just 400 MS .
Summary: first the item turned up and the box was all cracked n smashed so i emailed the suppliers and they did not get back to me so had to go through amazon who where great and sent me a new copy of it, i now do not own the game but it was an okay game to play not much more than that
Summary: The games are pretty short, sweet and repetitive, but if you are playing co-op with a friend and pretend that you are actually there, the game comes to life. Worth the money, but no masterpiece.
Summary: Alien Breed tries a couple a things, but the execution falls slightly short of the ambitions. It definately feels like a budget title, but in all fairness should be compared to the sparse selection of top-down twin-stick-shooters on Xbox. From that perspective, the game still holds it's ground. It's just not that fancy.
Summary: I was unsure if this was going to be a good purchase but was pleased when I first started playing. OK maybe not the best graphics, but for a no brains shooter this is a great buy! over 15hours of single player game play. Great game ..... & good price!
Summary: Firstly i'll point out the fact i never played the original games so ide never even heard of Alien Breed but i d/l a demo of episode 1 on xbox live and loved what i saw then ordered it on here for all 3 episodes on one disk. I think the unreal engine helps alot aswell as the lighting effects really set the mood. BLEAK yet surprisngly enjoyable for a top down shooter.
Love this game, excellent retro twin stick isometric shooter

Summary: As I said in the title I love this game, it is a very modern remake of a classic, But doesn't feel old. I have purchased this on Xbox live and now want a hard copy so placed an order for the disc. I will keep the story very vague so as not to spoil anything... You basically play a hardcore tough marine who must fight his way through what's left of his troubled empty space ship, etc shooting in all directions as aliens of various toughnesses try to kill you.
