But in 2011, what were once just sightings becomes a terrifying reality when earth is attacked by unknown forces. As people everywhere watch the world’s great cities fall, there remains one place that becomes the last stand for mankind in a battle no one expected. It’s up and your team to draw a line in the sand and take on an enemy unlike any we’ve ever encountered before.

It's........OK. If you like original movie and you can get it for not more than $1. Campaign actually is shorter than movie itself, 1 hour 6 min for me. US Marines against aliens. Poor aliens :D

Well.. what can I say.
Not too bad for a B shooter. Very linear though, get pushed down the 'tunnel' but the older havok effects are still nice. Basically get 3 weapons throughout the game. Assault Rifle, Sniper Rifle and RPG. Just point and shoot with no fancy bullet drop and such of course. Controls are a bit backwards but remapable (press e to use ironsight) Voice acting is acceptable.
Now to the main problem. The length.. This game lasted all of about 40minutes on hard. I'm really quite shocked. :)

Would I recommend it? Not really, no. Only for the collectors.

No real storyline, incredibly short, and super easy to complete on the hardest difficulty. Not worth the download even if it was free. Don't waste ur time. 0/10.

crappy movie make's for a crappy game.
vary short about 1-3 hours.
3 weapons (assult-sniper-rocket) + a mounted gun.
2 kinds of enemies - 1) base alien (sometimes have a walking gun) 2) air ship

the story was slightly different from the movie.
it'll get removed since its a licensed movie game. <---if your a collector *wink**wink*

It would have potential if it was longer.

Short 'n Fun

Well, if you were looking for a game that just give you a gun and say " kill the xenos " you'r now looking in the right place guys ! Most modern FPS have many " cutscenes, walking around, exploring landscape & collecting objects " that, frankly, sometimes just discourage to play another run, meanwhile, the short premises give this game a good replaybiity over a 2 hours long campaign.

If you liked the movie, you'll be glad that they didn't add fan-created enemies to make it last longer (do you remember how bad were the " new bugs " in that old StarshipTroopers game ?) : there are just the mobile turrets, the troopers and the ships.

I never saw it going down in price, so, i'd suggest to buy it for 9.99euro. It's better than spending 59.99 on COD (the gameplay is more or less the same, autoregen ecc.)

The cut scenes were terrible, the story line was short and boring, there is no multiplayer, and it was overpriced. This game was a complete waste of time.

This game is WEAK! I only found 3 guns, Assault Rifle, Sniper Rifle, and Rocket Launcher. Enemies are ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, and the game is so short I beat it in about an hour.

NOT WORTH 10 BUCKS! Buy it if it is on sale for 2

Not worth 10 dollars!! I finished the game in less than an hour and it was pretty bland. Dont waste your money.
Once this hits .99 cents then consider it, otherwise stay away!

I finished this game in LESS than an HOUR. This game would be impressive IF it had been made in 1991, but NO it was made in 2011. This game is utter garbage, the voice acting is terrible, the game mechanics are aweful, there is NO story line, the developers obviously don't give a damn about making video games, this was a quick and easy THEFT by them, robbing us by release utter GARBAGE
