Genre: Isometric 3rd Person Shooter
While playing though the first episode of the newly resurrected Alien Breed franchise I was constantly reminded of how the game lacked atmosphere and most importantly scares considering the plot revolves around aliens inhabiting a wounded spaceship.
Whilst the environments and aliens themselves are suitably grotesque, not once did I cower in fear of what may lay just around the corner. For the most part it was all pretty dull with the game simply going through the action tickbox motions - if you want to call searching for keycards to open locked doors action. You will spend a vast majority of the game searching for one keycard or another to open a locked door ad nauseum.
Having slogged my way through all three episodes I can't heartily recommend anyone do the same unless you have absolutely nothing else exciting to play.
