Für das Geld bekommt man einen seeeehr gelungenen taktischen Koop-Shooter, der mit Freunden richtig Spass macht. Technisch kann man jetzt natürlich nicht die absolute Oberklasse erwartet...

Meine Empfehlung: alle 3 Titel kaufen und auch Alien Swarm 4x Koop free to play runterladen. absolut untersätztes Game. Beim Doppel-M gibt es die Triologie auch mal für 2.99

This is the third and the last part of Alien Breed trilogy. And I think it's not the best one, but not the worst. I would say they align like that (from best to worst):

Alien Breed 1
Alien Breed 3
Alien Breed 2

The first part is far more superior. I don't know why. Maybe the game was still fresh by then and after the first part you basically did the same thing all over again in the next 2 parts.

Anyway. It's a decent trilogy. Some people say that its repetitivness will make you bore of the game, but it's not entirely true. The action of these games are very fun. Fun to shoot the aliens that swarm at you from all directions. Even if you do this hundreds of times during the games.

As for Alien Breed 3

+more aggressive aliens. They even seemed faster than in the previous parts.
+boss fights. Even tho they are quite straight forward, but still good enough.

and now annoying things

-you will get stuck in some narrow corridors
-there are so MANY explosions going on around you. One level was basically an explosion fiesta. And that's not the worst thing, but with every explosion your screen starts to shake and you can hardly see something. Imagine that it lasts for the whole level (~50 minutes). This is just stupidly ridiculous. Very frustrating. I know, the ship is in a bad shape and so on, but why make it shake every few seconds and make the things explode in the exactly same spots over and over again.
-camera positioning still sucks sometimes (well, mostly when you can't rotate it)

I got this game from the Humble Bundle a few years ago. If you really want to play this game, at least get it when it's on a sale. Otherwise it's not worth ~20€.

...well if you've played one and two then you know what you're getting... more of the same... the scenery looks the same, it controls the same, not sure why they spun it out into 3 games - I started the story on this one and it gave you a "previously on Alien Breed..." sounds like I've not missed much to be honest... they've thrown a few nicer weapons into the survival modes... still a decent twin-stick shooter, but definitely nothing special...

- Problems still remain unsolved;
- Worse optimization, this game even runs in a lower fps than the Witch 3 does on my laptop;
- A copy/paste game from the previous two games.

Not recommended even in a heavy discount.

In the same vain as the first two games, Alien Breed 3 pits you, Conrad, against the genius insanity of Dr. Klien. Then gameplay is exactly what you would expect from the Alien Breed games, with the surroundings keeping true to the previous games style. My only gripe with the game is the ending, as I felt it was sudden and left quite a lot to be desired; almost made the entire series feel overly pointless; but you can be the judge for yourself as I still recommend playing.

Alien Breed 3 wraps up the Alien Breed trilogy in spectacular fashion, bumping up big battles just enough so that they feel more impressive without being overwhelming. A fitting end to this trio of games, with an increase in encounters and environmental shifts that reflect where the plot has taken things perfectly.

Short-ish review since I mooned about the first two games plenty, but yeah. Get the trilogy. Play 'em all.

AB3 is the conclusion of Alien Breed Trilogy where Conrad, combat engineer, continue his adventure, as the real nature of the threat he's facing is finally revealed, and a final showdown is inevitable. It is a third-person shooter with variety of weapons, as well as other items like heal packs, grenades, even an occasional turret you can place to help you defend a spot. However, the ship's terrain is very repetitive, and most of the missions involve running around looking for something, which lead you to look for something else.

In AB1, the Leopold, came out of hyperspace and crashed into a giant ship full of nasty critters. Most of the Leopold's crew is dead. Four survivors, 3 human and 1 synth (Android) are all that remained. Conrad tried one thing after another to free the Leopold to no avail, as he fights through critters that infiltrated the ship. A desperate plan is conconcted... Conrad will attempt to cross over in to the other ship in hopes of restarting that instead. in AB2, Conrad made it through, and escorted MIA, the Synth, to attempt to interface with the other ship, only to discover that this ship is not alien at all, but actually an old secret project "lost in space", and it's too dangerous to let live. AB2 ended with MIA captured by the alien ship, fate unknown, and Conrad set the ship to self destruct.

Without spoiling the entire game, let's just say you'll attempt to rescue MIA, and have a final confrontation with Klein as the ship crashed back into the planet. You will have to make a run on the surface of the ship (where atmosphere is still too thin) and periodically hit oxygen stations, then confront bosses, which are very hard to kill.

The game gets VERY repetitive, as you run through corridor after corridor that looks about the same. There are plenty of things to shoot, but it's always in a dark place, and your light doesn't cover that much. Your "radar" is good, but enemies move fast, and ammo is not that plentiful. And mission objectives gets repetitive... You need to disable the "gyro" which will kill the generator permanently rather than just disconnected. So you run over, only to find door blocked, so you hunt for alternate route, which is blocked by locked door, so you hunt for a keypass, which then leads to a door blocked, so you have to hunt for access from the other side, and shoot at the explosive barrels to "release" the door, then you get to a room that's on fire, so you have to search for damage control station to release halon gas... You get the idea. The entire game is full of Fedex quests like that... Find this, take it there, repeat ad nauseum.

The boss fight is definitely reminiscent of Aliens (Ripley on that "platform") or at least one part of it.

The ending is left ambiguous enough to leave it open for another sequel... if you aren't deathly tired of this one.

All in all, this game concluded the trilogy that felt it's a bit too long. If you can get the whole trilogy cheap, it will provide a couple hours of shooting critters left and right. However, it really needs a boss health meter, as I can never tell how much more do I have to shoot the darn boss (i.e. was I doing any damage). I was stuck on boss encounter 1 because I can't seem to bring down the shields for the final assault. Had to consult a video walkthru to realize what I did wrong.

This is my second favourite version of Alien Breed, second to the first game in the series.
I've spent a lot of time playing this game and all the games in the series.
If you are new to the series I would suggest you start with the first game, however, the gameplay IS essentially the same in every version.

Pros:
-Same old Alien Breed gameplay. If you like it, you will like this version.
-New and visually impressive maps and bosses, some new guns.
-Good sound effects, graphics, music, and controls.
-Multiplayer Co op Maps, multiplayer and singleplayer Survial Maps, and Steam Leaderboards. Voice Chat and Steam Achievements.

Cons:
-Same old slow placed repetetive Alien Breed gameplay. Excessive focus stealing from the camera, (zooming in on switches, doors, explosions) and new but cramped and unpleasant camera angles.
-Environments are the same old interior of a spaceship, and many corridors and rooms.
-Same old sound effects, music, and graphics as the previous versions.
-Steam Achievements can be very challenging. No cards. No local co op.

I suggest you buy this game despite it's flaws. It's a fun game and online multiplayer adds lots of replay.

Finished alien breed impact and alien breed 2.. And ohhh boy, im really digging the series.. Game does get repetitive but, if you love top down shooters with intense action and your heart pounding that you dont run out of bullets this is the game for you. This is pretty much the last series to the alien breed..

pro
Graphics are same as 1 and 2
Top down shooter
upgradable weapons and customisation
Gameplay addictive and solid
sound effects
survivor mode
Co-op
Easy Achievements

cons:
gameplay gets repetitive

GAMEPLAY:
ein sehr nettes und ordentliches spiel für zwischendurch. zu empfehlen ist es nur als trologie.
nur so kommt man in den voll genuss des kompletten spiels. story des spiels ist ausreichend, das ende bleibt wie fast bei jeden spiel offen.
jeder der 3 teile hat 5 missionen, die meiner meinung nach recht lang und gut gemacht sind.
man gelangt oft zu gleichen abschnitten, doch durch die aufmachung und dem spielverlauf fällt es kaum auf.
verständliches und einfaches handling, der shop bzw. das intex terminal ist eine schöne sache um ausrüstung zu upgraden und munition nachzufüllen.
gegner sind gut gelungen. kein bereich ist wirklich sicher in diesem schiff, dies sorgt für abwechselung.
die feuereffekte sind wunderbar, sowie auch die kleinen explosionen die den spieler begleiten.
durch die düstere umgebung fällt die grafik etwas besser aus als sie in wirklichkeit ist.

KOOP:
koop anscheinend nur zwangsweise ins spiel integriert.
die überlegung ist sehr gut, ingame gut umgesetzt da man sich waffen und ausrüstung aufteilen muss und gegner an zwei fronten mit teamwork bekämpfen muss.
vom gesamten konzept eher schwach.
upgrades sind nutzlos, alles wird nach jeder map zurück gesetzt. jede map muss einzeln neugestartet werden.
einfach zu wenig für einen "koop-titel".

ERRUNGENSCHAFTEN:
mit etwas aufwand sind diese recht einfach zu bekommen.
etwas schwerer werden die koop errungenschaften, die ein gewisses maß an teamwork und gedult erfordern.
lösungshilfen zu den einzelnen missionen im einzelspieler sind im untenstehenden link vermerkt.

FAZIT:
dieses spiel ist als trilogie zu empfehlen.
sehr schön im einzelspieler zu genießen.
definitiv nicht das klassische koop spiel.
grafik ist ausbaufähig doch ok.
alles in allem hab ich es mit spass verfolgt.

BEWERTUNG:
  • 3 von 5 punkten

For an english review, pls look below :)

German/Deutsch
Alien Breed ist ein sehr entspanntes Spiel, welches man schön daddeln kann, wenn man mal nen bisschen runterkommen will und quer aufm Sofa liegt. Die Grafik ist voll ok, die story, naja durchschnittlich. Allerdings macht es Spaß die Gegner wegzumähen und die verschieden Waffen richtig einzusetzen. jeder Teil der Alien Breed reihe braucht etwa 6-8 Stunden zum durchspielen. Ich würde das Spiel empfehlen, allerdings nur wenn es im Sale ist und einem der Spielstil zusagt.
wie in allen meinen Reviews betreibe ich mal wieder Eigenwerbung und poste meinen Lets Play Kanal: https://www.youtube.com/user/lightfire777/featured

English: Alien Breed is an "calm down" game, how i would say it. Relax on the couch and play this game. The graphics are ok and the story is moderate. The comics between the levels are nice and it is fun to use your weapons wisely. Every Alien Breed game takes 6-8 hours to play through. I advise the game, if you buy in a sale or bundle and if you like the gamestyle :)

Dritter und letzter Teil der Neuauflage von 1991 erschieneden Spieles das eine isometrische Ansicht hat sowie im einzel als auch zweier Co-op spielbar ist was in drei Teile gestückelt sind die ein zusammen die ganze Geschichte erzählen.
Es läst sich gut und einfach mit Mouse und Keyboard spielen.
Die düster Atmosphäre. Man kommt sich auch ein wenig wie im Alien-Universium vor.
Genug Gegner mit verschiedenen Fähigkeiten die vereinzelt oder mal in Horden kommen aber wenn die einmal abgeschoss sind kommen kein neuen mehr ausser das eben die Misson das abverlangt und eben Bossgegner.
Reichlich Waffen und Ausrüstung.
Spiecherpunkte sind nur an den Kaufstationen, ich meine auch beim verlassen des Spieles ( Autspiecher ).
Das Gameplay ist gut ausgewogen und Schwierigkeitsgrad sind auch angemessen ohne das man sich an einer Stelle
festhängt. Die Missonen sind ansicht auch net kompliziert aber man muss sich doch ein wenig anstrengen dort mal hin zukommen aber man hat ja auch ein Mapansicht wo alles verzeichtnet ist.
Co-op hab ich bis jetzt noch nicht spielen können und kann eben nicht zu sagen
Man hat auch Arenamaps wo man zum Beispiel einfach mal ein paar Horden aufhalten soll
Im grunde gefällt mir das Spiel wie es ist, hat kein Bugs. Die Geschichte ist nett, leider Audio nur in English Text in Deutsch. Leider finde ich das es, weil es Co-op hat, langweillig. Denn man hat nicht so viele oder garkeine Spieler nach meinem erachten oder warscheinlich nach 5 Minuten wieder verschwinden.

The third part of the Alien Breed series, starting this third part will give a big Déjà vu of the second part. The intro and start-screen are pretty much the same but instead of green they used a orange/yellow theme. After a quick Google search i came to the conclusion that this part was released a little less than two month's after part 2.

As stated before the intro and start menu look exactly the same as part 2, after starting a new single player you get to see the re-cap of what happened. Again this looks actually like part 2, even the first minute was the same as the previous part. After the cut-scene you get to start and it again looks actually like A.B 2, i am not stating this is a good or bad thing but since i didn't like the previous part this just didn't work for me.

Level design is done with a great eye for details, allot of scenic sightseeing helps to enhance the orbital atmosphere. The in-game cut-scenes are i bit short in my opinion, since they look decent and some of the character designs are to be called quite unique i would like to see them for longer than 5 seconds... The HUD's change of colour works better since it's easy to see no matter whats in the background. The music is still pretty good but after playing five minutes i noticed that they cut the alien ambient sounds. Objectives in the main campaign are mainly going from A to B and activating a switch to proceed in the level and some backtracking.

Controls are still mainly for the twin-sticks and using a keyboard/mouse feels awkward and still has some issues with turning around to shoot an enemy that is hitting you in the back. The multiplayer/coop aspect and survivor-mode are still the same as part 2, the overall gameplay is nice but not my thing. Also instead of tuning the game after A.B 2 they kept everything the same, this could again be a good/bad thing but they could of optimize the keyboard controls.

Faulty's scorecard :-

1) Essential purchase
2) Recommended purchase
3) Recommended purchase during a sale
4) Not recommended unless heavily discounted
5) Not even recommended for Steam game collectors

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 key-card then proceed to walk the entire length of said spaceship in search of said key-card. Rinse and repeat! To break up this frantic key-card 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 original 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 key-card collecting. Considering that there is another infinitely superior title about a engineer on-board 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.

Since all three games are exactly the same this is the same review as the other two games.

Not a great game but it has great weapons and really good graphics and very smooth gameplay. Why it's not a great game:

1: The biggest massive problem, CONSTANT AND NEVER ENDING FOCUS STEALING FROM START TO FINISH. Which really is not that prevalent in the first game but is a major problem in the second and third games. The game constantly, more than any game I have ever seen, even Resident Evil 6, steals focus from you during events to make the camera spin a little while zooming in and force you to watch the stupidest most mundane ♥♥♥♥ like a grate opening or a switch turning on or ANYTHING. It was like the developers found a little focus stealing trick and went way, way, way overboard with it. It is aggravating to astronomical levels and does not feel like you are playing a game but something where you get to play only sometimes when it lets you. Again, not so bad in game one but a massive problem in games two and three.
2: CONSTANT screen shaking from explosions. It caused me to have to play each game from start to finish with a non-stop bad headache.
3: The sound is very low. I have to turn my volume way way up when playing this game which is a big problem because of course I am not going to remember to turn it back down when I'm done playing so the next thing I do, like play music or play another much better game, blows my ♥♥♥♥ing ears off.
4: There are very few types of enemies. I think 5 or less. And even those 5 all feel the same.
5: The game is very, very repetitive. What you do in the first fifteen minutes is exactly what you do in every other minute of all three games. The game offers no variety at all, especially since all 3 games are mirror images of each other.
6: The environments from the start to finish of all games is all exactly the same from game to game. Even though each game takes place in a different area of the ship or I think on different ships maybe, all three games are completely identical.
7: All 3 games are very short, about 4 hours each.
8: Crashes/glitches. I don't think I had any trouble with the first two games, maybe one or two crashes in the second game. The third game has crashed three times now. Once early, then half way through it, and now near the end. Their forum pin says it could be a file validation to fix it, but who cares when the games have the other bad problems I pointed out. And YES I understand it is a problem on my end. But no other games crash so it is a problem on my end caused by something to do exclusively with this game in particular and none of the other 150+ games I have installed.

It's sad because the games graphics are outstanding and the gameplay is very, very smooth. But because of the main flaws being so incredibly bad, I can only recommend them if you can catch them on sale like I did for $5.65 for all 3 games. Their normal price of $10 each is laughable. Like throw your head back and audibly laugh loud. Once I play through them I'm never coming back to them, ever.

Since all 3 games are the exact same, only one score is needed. Production quality in some areas like graphics and control is 8/10, everything else 5/10. Overall, 5/10. Badly missed opportunity for a all-time favorite cult classic. Whoever made this is jarringly inept.

A solid Twin Stick Shooter.

If you want to mow things down with no ethical quandry, this is a good game series. I had fun all the way through. It doesn't do anything unique or ground breaking, but it's solid for what it is. The game has a good number of weapons, each good in different situations. Flame thrower is fun.

I think one of my few complaints about this game series is a minor preference thing. There's 3 different upgrades for each weapon but you can only choose ONE. If you upgrade to another you will only be using the new one, not both. Just a money saving tip.

First of all, I end up recommending this/these game/games but my overall score regarding this trilogy is barely 6/10 and I'd like to share my view about this.


Alien Breed: Impact - The graphic looks neat despite the age, the controls are a little clunky and the explosions shockwave, more than being realistic, just give you nausea after some time. I swear, the camera shakes all the time non-stop. Still, the levels are smart-structured and the weapons/weapons effects are very cool. The story begins to unfold here and it's quite interesting, so when the game ends, you fnd yourself wanting more because you really want to know what's next.

Alien Breed: Assault - By far the worst of the three chapters imho, the levels are just huge for nothing, you always end up running in small hallways or from a room to another, in quick sequence. The secrets/logs aren't really that secret so the exploration part of the game is also limited compared to the previous chapter.
Talking about difficulty and all, there's no reason not to play on Elite from the start, all you need to do is always have an automatic door between you and the enemies, since they will just stand there for a few seconds getting hit to death... or you can simply run past them. This is a huge problem shared in all the Alien Breed games, but in this chapter it's more of an issue because despite the levels being huge, you always end up running through small places (making your life easier or miserable depending of the situation).
Story-wise you won't be that much satisfied but I guess they wanted to leave the better stuff for the final chapter.

Alien Breed: Descend - Imho the best of three, even with all the flaws of the previous chapters, it has some increased pace that in gauntlet-games like these is a must-have.
The weapons at your disposal are better than the second chapter and more similar to the first. For the first time here, even tho the logs are still very easy to find, the secrets are not, you may have an easy time with one or two, but you're gonna experience hell to find a couple, and not always you can spend your time looking for them (there are a lot of events with a timer on, so no easy backtracking). The story kicks in to his final stages and before you realize you're on the last mission the games ends with a brutal end-game fight.

Now, talking about stuff shared between the three games, I have to say I really hated the camera and overall the stiff controls, they could've done a better job, sometimes you're forced to proceed with a fixed camera and it's really annoying.
The story isn't that original but it's cool enough, it only lacks a couple of secondary characters, since you're always on your own or talking to MIA (the AI android) more or less.

The biggest blackdot in these games is the lack of Local Co-Op, it'd have been that much better with this option... also, if you're an achievement-hunter, you're gonna experience hell to do the last achievements in multiplayer, problem being there are not enough players online (or none at all) still playing this trilogy, so you will probably need to find someone on the forums and ask for help.

As I said previously, overall my vote is 6/10, I recommend you to buy the trilogy on a super special discount or in a bundle (better) like a I did, since imho they're not worthy the full price (or even half the price tbh).

Alien Breed comes in "3 Episodes" and if you like games like the Free2Play game Alien Swarm then you should try all three Episodes of Alien Breed. That would Be:

Alien Breed: Impact
Alien Breed: Assault
Alien Breed: Descent

Can recommend. Only flaw i found was the Co-op part of the game, its a stand alone four diffrent missions that you can play, and not the main campaign played in Co-op (Sadly). Later games even have survival mode.

Repetitive, no real new elements apart water everywhere, Alien Breed 3: Descent doesn't manage to get as good as the others, as you're always seeing the same rooms over and over. But the end of the first chapter, the fact that you find Vance and Barnes, how to say it,... or Klein's body make the story good.

In other words, Descent is concluding the trilogy, still in the same ship as the previous game but with a reason for you to fight. Your friend MIA is prisoner. People around you are dead. No one is surviving apart you.

This game is very very similar to the two previous ones, so, well, I'll copy/paste parts of them.

The solo campaign is about the main character but you can play three co-op missions as Vance and Barnes with a friend.

The game is seen in 3D isometric, meaning that you have a little time to adapt to the command and the view when you're used to 3rd person or 1st person game.

I've enjoyed this game but less than the others: the plot turned out to be very sad because his only friend is prisonner and Theo knows that if he wants to stop this madness, some sacrifices have to be made. However, given the fact that no novelty is there, apart another new weapon, this game is on the verge to be a boring one.

You still have the PDA - with finding those of the crew ship, without forgetting the maps and the terminals that are shops and save points.

The HUD is orange, like the title in the header. So, everything (texts on the screen) will be orange too. The game is also told with cutscenes drawed as comics. And well, orange is also the main color. Impact had blue, Assault had green, Descent will have orange, kinda indicating that we're going down into the fire.

Alien Breed: Descent is still a nice game. Don't worry, it will conclude perfectly the trilogy. That was a nice ride, don't hesitate.

Game is an endless series of "Fetch and Run" quests

Here's everything you need to know about this game:

OMG, there's a fire! Quick run back half way across the ship to activate fire suppression (shoot 3 aliens)! OH NO, the panel isn't powered, find the generator and fire it up (shoot 5 aliens, 2 of them really big)! Fire out? Good, lets go all the way back to that first door and find out why we need to backtrack again (Shoot 2 aliens, assorted sizes).

Rinse and repeat!

The finale to a great game. A little bit of Aliens movie and the packet is sealed. If you played the previous two definitely grab this one too!

Finished alien breed impact and alien breed 2.. And ohhh boy, im really digging the series.. Game does get repetitive but, if you love top down shooters with intense action and your heart pounding that you dont run out of bullets this is the game for you. This is pretty much the last series to the alien breed..

pro
Graphics are same as 1 and 2
Top down shooter
upgradable weapons and customisation
Gameplay addictive and solid
sound effects
survivor mode
Co-op
Easy Achievements

cons:
gameplay gets repetitive

Same as the previous 2 games, it amazes me why they couldnt realease all 3 games into 1 pack instead of selling them commercially as singles. Any how what ive stated in previous reviews stands only buy it if its on sale since its got pretty much zero replayability and theres just not enough content or oomph to go back to an average experience overall although i did like the final boss and his constant taunting of the main protaganist only because he sounded alot like my old english teacher at school lol :D
