Take a pinch of Resident Evilesque top down shooter and dark ambiance with "find the right key to open the door" progression, replace the slow zombies by a bunch of fast Starship Trooperesque insectoid aliens, and make the whole thing produced by Michael BaySPLOSION ! and Tada ! you obtain Alien Breed.

It's quite fun if you don't expect the best game of all times. It's cheap and there is a demo, so you have nothing to loose.

Alien Breed: Impact is a remake of a remake, but still manages to be a video game with a good personality. The gameplay is simple but fast-paced and if you like old-style shooter with a ton of weapons and enemies you won't be disappointed. The main campaign is somewhat repetitive and has little flashes of originality, but given the limited duration of the game (one of the major flaws) you'll enjoy anyway, especially in the company of a friend.

Short verdict: it's not a complete crap.

Let me guess: you got this game in a bundle? Then this trilogy might be worth those few cents you've invested in it. As a remake of the original Amiga title, it's great. But on its own...meh. Modern games just have higher standards. In every aspect, this game is mediocre.
It has just enough to get you going and want to finish it. But barely. Often, during the gameplay, I caught myself thinking: "Do I really want to finish it?" Because you just walk around, shoot aliens and fix/open doors or other mechanisms. That's it. It's very repetitive. You do get weapon upgrades, and the weapons and aliens do change a bit in each part, but only a little. The game also throws in a bit of puzzles, there are a couple vacuum scenes, a few boss fights, but mostly it's about navigating through the mazes that are the two space ships in this game. Physics or logic? Don't expect scientific accuracy in this game. I wish you could fix something, by blowing it up in real life, too.

There's a lot of backtracking and forced camera angles/close ups. If you can tolerate it, then this trilogy might be worth a few evenings it takes to complete it. After the second half of the Alien Breed 2, I was hooked enough to find out how it all ends. With enough patience, you might be, too.

On a side note, the game has a nice design and a cool little comic story between the stages.

All parts in the trilogy are pretty much the same. Basically, it's one game, split in three parts, which I think is a cheap move.

My overall rating: 6/10

Whoever designed the layout for this starship should be sued for inhibiting emergency response.

Welcome to this stupid ship where the controls to operate every part of the ship are thirty miles from the thing you're trying to use. Thank you for choosing Intex.
