For years, there have been documented cases of UFO sightings around the world – Buenos Aires, Seoul, France, Germany, China. 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.

This is where I wish there was a neutral rating button because I would certainly have chose the neutral option. The game worked out fine on my high performing laptop. But those cut-scenes were like straight out of a comic strip. So when it transition from comic strip cut-scene to an actual graphically cut-scene, it left me scratching my head and thought of "why this" type of questions. But besides all that, it was pretty decent. It tried to be like the movie but it definitely wasn't. Only the aliens, the ufos, and LA were true to its form. The voice acting was meh. The Battle: Los Angeles movie had a better cast than this video game (no offense). All in all, wait till this game goes on sale. It's not worth the $10. I bought it for $10 because I thought it would be removed soon due to licensing issues. (Looks at Konami about their licensing issue with Saw the video game on Steam).

This game is fun from what i have seen so far but for some reason when i play it the npcs helping me glitch out and they strech out all over with arms that are at least 20 feet long. It also looks like triangles of paper are covering my screen when i play. Maybe its only because im playing on my crappy laptop. I would reccomend this game 9/10 but the price should be in my opinion lowered to $7.99.

Not enough content to be able to be a game. If you have the slightlest interest in this game, just go and watch the movie! :)

first of all I'm not one of those people that pays $60 waiting on a pre-order, I wait until the price is in the $10-$20 range and makes sure that their are more 5 star ratings than 1 star. what a waste of money, I should have read the reviews which I usualy do, but not in this case. major mistake. I just looked at the short video the game had and "ASSUMED" it was like the rest of the war games like the Call of Duty series. Please save your money and read the reviews .

This game has one of the worst gameplay time to money ratios on the entire storefront. The fact that it's garbage doesn't help either.

- Extremely short
- Poor optimization
- Mediocre graphics, sounds, and effects
- Extremely linear
- Almost feels like a demo
- Is not fun
- Does not follow the movie it was named after

Was this a cashgrab? Probably.

A game as long as the movie. Very terrible gameplay but stomachable story. There's literally three guns: the assault rifle, sniper, and bazooka- not counting the turret. Get on sale.

Shortest FPS campaign I've ever seen.

Took me about an hour. On hard. The campaign is about the size of a level in any other FPS game.

The ending of it also just sucks. The storyline is not engaging, the gameplay is not immersive, the gunplay is clunky.

It's not full of bugs so it's got that going for it.

I would not recommend this game to anyone. Even on sale.

I beat this game in 43 minutes. It's short. It's basically a clone of COD style single player. Except only weapons are m16, sniper and bazooka. It's not terrible, it's certainly uninspired, there are ♥♥♥♥♥ier games, but the point is there are better ways to spend your money on steam.

45 minutes of terrible linear gameplay, poor cinematics, poorer control mapping, mediocre voice acting, 3 levels, 3 guns, and outdated graphics. Why this game is even available for public sale is beyond me.

This game, if you can call it that, is prob one of the worst "games" I´ve ever seen, heard off or played.

Took me 47 mins from start to finish, thats it yea 47 mins on the hardest level possible.

This is supposely build on the movie, but honestly BUY THE MOVIE and save your money.

Grahpics, sound, voice acting all of it is soooo wrong this is the first game out of over 3000 that i´ve directly uninstalled right after a playthrough and the first I do not recommend at ANY given point, save your money for something else!

Its not a bad game, its just generic. It would be a great game for younger people to play. If you are around 10 years old I think this would be a great. It doesn't take long to beat the first time through. There are extras to unlock, but from what the extras I saw its not really worth it. I would recommend this game to young people but to those that are used to games like Battlefield or Call of Duty then I would stay away from it unless you find this game super cheap.

I picked this game up while it was on sale because I liked the movie.
It bears a number of similarities to the movie, the characters are the same, and you're gaming out the movie.

In game its decent, the models and textures are reasonable for the $5 I put into it, and the aliens look good too, however that's where the positive parts end.
The negatives begin before you even start the game.
Everyone reading this has played a shooter, WSAD, R(reload), E(use), right click(zoom/sights), standard keys, or so you would think, this would be the case.
No, instead E is to zoom/sight, and X is use, R is thankfully still reload.
Next is the cutscenes, again, you might think that with decent graphics in game while playing the cutscenes would be decent, but no, they (and there's enough of them) look like they were drawn by a 5 year old and animated by the south park guys.
Then there's the magic aliens, who can also shoot through walls, who can see me before I get there (I actually had one firing before I rounded a corner), and have hitboxes smaller than the model.
If you push too hard too fast, the game's solution is to kill you instantly, so, don't try to flank the aliens too much.

On normal mode, with a number of deaths before I figured out the insta-death, I beat the game in the 1.3h that steam tells me, that was enough and it's going away.

If you can get this game for a buck or two, and if you liked the movie, give it a try, if you're looking for a good shooter with a decent story, don't bother.

Oh, and you multi-player fans, yeah, not so much.

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.

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*
