Personal Rating: "Grab it during a massively discounted sale"
Traditional Rating: 3/10
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.

Nice game, which takes place on the spaceship infested with aliens. Simple story, nice graphics and even better atmosphere. Five maps in single player and three in co-op. Three difficulty levels, thirteen achievements, from what a few quite difficult to accomplish. Minuses - you can’t skip movies and dialogues and this can be annoying especially when you repeat missions to earn achievements. Logs we collect stay in our collection permanently if we save our progress with them – after we found any but died before saving our progress on terminal they disappear and we need to collect them once again. Irritating map, which needs to be minimized every time we access it to see it as a whole. Overall it’s worth buying especially on sale.

Przyjemna gierka, której akcja rozgrywa się na statku kosmicznym opanowanym przez obcych. Prosta fabuła, fajna grafika i jeszcze fajniejszy klimat. Pięć map dla jednego gracza i trzy w kooperacji. Trzy poziomy trudności, trzynaście osiągnięć, z czym kilka dość trudnych do zdobycia. Minusy to, że nie można pominąć filmików i dialogów, co może być trochę denerwujące zwłaszcza jak się powtarza misje żeby zrobić osiągnięcia. Logi, które zbieramy podczas misji znikają z naszej kolekcji jeśli zginiemy i trzeba je zbierać jeszcze raz, po czym dotrwać z nimi do zapisu aby się zachowały na stałe. Denerwująca obsługa mapy, która trzeba minimalizować za każdym razem, żeby zobaczyć gdzie się znajdujemy. Podsumowując to na pewno warto mieć w swojej kolekcji zwłaszcza po przecenie.

All I see is complaints, complaints ... This game is fun ! I admit I got it on a bundle with the other 2 episodes, but overall it was worth it. The graphics are good and the action is enough for me plus it has several difficulty levels. I also tried Alien Swarm and I own Shadowgrounds Survivor, but I still play this game and its siblings much more due to 1 little feature: Xbox Controller Support. That really allows me to kick back on a couch and enjoy the game for what it is and it kinda reminds me of the good ol' Contra III days ... Maybe its just me ... Get it on sale !

Alien Breed is an isometric sci-fi shooter where you independently control the direction your character aims and moves. You maneuver through a series of 5 stages in each episode, collecting weapons and items, and shooting aliens as they appear while you move from objective to objective provided on your mini-map.

It is difficult to write a separate review for each Episode, as they all largely play the same - you move from point A to point B to pick up access code C to open door D to get to point E to get access code F to.....you get the picture. Lots of backtracking through same-looking corridors, fighting similar looking enemies which pop out of the floor and walls.

It's fun, but only moderately so - I would NOT recommend playing through a single episode in one sitting, let alone all three episodes. The gameplay is repetitive and it's the sort of thing you'll want to put down for a while between sessions (I'd actually say on the level of months between episodes) so it doesn't get stale.

To be honest in this review, i didn't like this game at all... Alien Swarm which is free, has much better story and it's more fun than this game...

Annoying "move forward,... oops, malfunction, go back and repair it" is all that game is... and shooting aliens ofc...., maps are really long, but after first level game gets boring and annoying with always doing the same thing....

Online gaming is dead,..

Maybe all that is the reason why none of my friends own this game :( ...

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.
