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.

Very short, only worth it if you can get it for under a buck, otherwise don't buy it.

This game was satisfying while I was playing it but when I got to the end within an hour of playing it I was extremely disappointed. I played on normal the first time around and finished it so fast I played it again in hard and finished it just as quickly. I messed around in it for half an hour just to get more time out of it but found it quite boring.This game was not at all worth the money for how short the story is.

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.

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!

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.

It's like 40 mins long, has 2 guns and a rocket launcher, and the leaderboreds are based on nothing but accuracy.

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.

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*

$10 for about 25 minutes of gameplay. That's how long this waste of money was.
