About the Game

Alien Breed™ 3: Descent is the final explosive chapter in the Alien Breed™ series, and is a science fiction arcade-shooter with an epic story, swarms of highly intelligent alien enemies, high-impact weapons and stunning environments, developed using Epic Games' Unreal® Engine 3. Descend into hell and once again take control of the hero, Conrad, the ship’s Chief Engineer, in his last stand against the savage alien horde. While the doomed vessel, the Leopold, and the alien space craft plunge deeper into the planet’s atmosphere, with an icy ocean promising a watery grave, you have just hours to defy a grisly death and survive the alien onslaught for the final time. As you struggle deeper into the sinking alien ship, through the freezing waters flooding every corridor, the horrifying truth surrounding the existence of the Breed is finally uncovered… In addition to the thrilling conclusion to the single-player campaign and the relentless and competitive “Survivor” modes, the game offers action-packed, two-player online co-operative battle modes.

The third episode in this whole Alien Breed affair (or drama as I see it) unfolds in a way you would expect it to unfold if you had played the first two episodes. Walk an endless labyrinth of spaceship corridors to an electric door that needs a keycard then proceed to walk the entire length of said spaceship in search of said keycard. Rinse and repeat! To break up this frantic keycard search for every second door you encounter there will be some pesky aliens lying in wait to snack on your bones.

Having completed the third and final episode in the Alien Breed series I am still not entirely sure what Team 17 was trying to go for here. Sure Alien Breed back in the nineties may have been a resounding success but dragged kicking and screaming into the new century the game comes across as archaic. Clearly Team17 are still stuck somewhere in the nineties when it comes to the game design process. I remember the orginal being quite fun to play and rather action-packed but this entire reboot had me bored to tears for the most part.

There are absolutely no scares and the action is so flat that you would get more out of a text adventure from the eighties. Maybe Team17 were going more for the laughs this time around with all this nonsense keycard collecting. Considering that there is another infinitely superior title about a engineer onboard an alien infested spaceship called Dead Space you are better off taking your money there.

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.

I will note that the third episode is easily the most difficult of the three, so if you're looking for a challenge, this one is probably the one to look at.

Best of the seires.

I have already reviewed the secound game in the series, and the games are very simelar, but I will still say what this game did, that made it my favorite of the three.

It`s still a run and gun game, with a overhead view, and it still tryes to be scary but fails.

It would be better if you read my Alien Breed: Assult review becosue I will not go into that much detail in this one, since the games are that simelar.

Well this is when the game ends, and what an ending!

The game picks up from the last, and we know that the ship have taken over the mind of MIA. This is the game with the most highlights and the most bosses. The good thing about the bosees, is that they all are enjoyable and are at times difficult.

This puts a new perspective on the game, since the other games in the series, did not had as many memerable moments as this. The game puts our main charecter through hell in this game, and it really makes you tence to kill the last boss, which has a huge twist at the end. And the ending is really really good.

The weapons in this game are really awesome towards the end, and it only makes the feeling of blasting aliens even more satisfying.

This game get`s a thumps up, becouse I think the whole sereis has been enjoyable, and this ending, made all the games worth it.

I can understand why this was available at such a phenominal discount. It was fun for the very cheap price I paid. But trying to aim while walking does not work well. Sometimes I was able to aim one way and walk another, while at othe times the game suddenly forced the gun to shoot where I was walking/running. The later caused me to die sometimes. The cut scenes are boring, and you can't skip then. I would not recomend picking this up unless it was 90% off. I played the other two in the series and would not recomend them either unless bundled in a massive sale. Stay clear of this pile of junk!
