Possibly the best product Valve has ever pushed out. Ditched with the saddest excuse saying the game was just to test their free to play system.

A game which could have had endless amounts of content, updates, and a huge playerbase.

Not to mention the use of .vpk files instead of .bsp which made them not download-able directly from the server and required installing them via third party like old school mods which made the modding community very weak.

Lack of updates and the game eventually died.. in the hands of its creator.

9/10

WEEK OF HOLIDAYS ON ALIEN PLANET

Free action game with the mode of cooperation in the style of the classic Alien Breed. The players are soldiers of various specializations who must break through levels full of dangerous monsters. Production requires coordination between the participants of fun, because there is always a lot of enemies and the various stages are bringing more and more of tough challenges.

Top down 4 player co-op shooter?

I think YES!

Pros
- Co-op strong
- Fun gameplay
- Great potential

Cons
- Player base is dead (in Australia, atleast, I'm not sure about U.S.A)
- Only 1 campaign (But you can download community made campaigns)

This game is a hidden gem. Recommend this game if you and your friends are bored and want something new!

This game is hardcore oldschool skill based shooter. There is no mercy for people without eye/hand coordination.
You must think about health,ammo,friendly fire,being infested and many more. Normal mode is good for start. Real fun start when you are aware of enemy types and know how to counter them as a TEAM. Yes you can solo in this game but... the real fun of squad based shooters begin when you cover your mates and act your role :)

Lots of weapons and additional equipment make this game fun as hell when you try diffrent configurations.

Have fun even if it not too long.

MapPack is avaiable to download :)

I was looking for a game beside the most popular and came to this beauty. Challenging maps, huge amount of unlockable weapons (one more badass than the other) and lots and lots of community-made maps to keep up the fun for hours.
If you have one or two good friends and you are looking for something good to play whenever you are annoyed by the russians in dota 2 or just need to kill some alien motherf*****s, I highly recommend this game. :D

10/10 for exploding aliens

Alien Swarm is a game forgotten by both Valve as it's developer and the community. A game that had potential, but comes out just feeling unfinished. The concept is good enough, but it probably got canceled and someone just decided that it would be shame to leave it, and put up what they had at that time. And well, if it wasn't good enough, people didn't like it enough for it to become good thanks to the community.

The only thing that truly keeps this game alive, if you can even call it alive, is the fact it's fully Free to Play. No payment on Steam, no microtransactions, nothing. You can join the fray at any time and see what they got in store for you. However, it still features a level system - the more and the better you play, the bigger level you are and the better equipment you get.

This unlocks one of the games biggest advantages - a very smart equipment system. You can choose between four classes, with two characters for each, both with completely different playstyles. Then you get to choose your equipment, two weapons and a utility. Of course, all four of the classes have access to equipment available only to them, as well as access to certain shared equipment. For example, the Medic is the only one capable of carrying the Medikit or the Medigun, the Commander is the only one capable of carrying shotgun, the Engineer is the only one capable of carrying a rifle with autoaim etc. The game then features more than 40 weapons and about 15 utilities (if i recall correctly). This allows you to play the game differently every time, but thanks to the level system, certain weapons will always be better than others, even though the game does try to balance them out.

The gameplay is then based around a co-op mode for four players. You (and hopefully a team you can trust) are sent to a colony gone dark to investigate, and *drum roll* fight off aliens there *badumm tshhhhh*. However, you are alone. So you need to conserve ammunition, use medkits and cooperate while holding off the bugs in order to survive, and fulfil objectives along the way. All in a top-down Source game. That means the SDK makes the maps quite interesting, counting in things like fire, liquids or destructible enviroment, even some in-game animation parts along the way. This all creates a feeling of being swarmed and overrun, yet deeply dedicated to ending the mission succesfully and without casualities. Talking about casualities, it's worth noting that there's friendly fire ON by default. Watch it.

Probably the most notable change is the Source SDK here. If a big community would be on... millions of maps. IT's just that easy to make them. Tile based creation and Source modelling = Map. I tried it out myself, it took me exactly 76 minutes to recreate the first level. It's just sad it is not used.

Also please note that Win 8 is not supported by this game. It will run after you install it, but Win 8 will screw up it's files and you'll have to reinstall sooner or later.

As to my recommendation, I can say that this is a game you will enjoy at first, and then become disappointed by later. Play at your own risk.

I used to play it with my friends some time ago.
A great sci-fi action co-op game!
If you have some friends willing to get in action and you like all that "UFO-PEWPEW-LAZERS", then there's no possibility of not loving this game!
I really like how they dealt with character development, where you can level up and achieve better weapons or items, which are big help and fun of course.

And yeah, i think that this game is underrated as HELL! It brought me and my friends tons of fun.

Giving it 8,5/10!

8 characters with different stats. Many weapons. Many perks. Levling up. Lots of aliens various aliens to kill. Additional fan made campaings extend fun and 5 difficulties allow for more experience. The problem is it comes with just one campaign, but it's a quality one. Coop on this game is great. Good mod, and it's free :D
