-Quick Review-
Alien Swarm is a Top-Down shooter with emphasis on multiplier teamwork with four total players. Alien Swarm was developed by Valve and released mid 2010. Many of the initial players were lured to the game by the lure of an Alien hat you can unlock via an achievement on Alien Swarm.

-Detailed breakdown review-
Story: You are a member of a team of space troopers who are investigating the circumstances of a seemingly abandoned/evacuated space colony, and trying to recover whatever data is still available.

Gameplay: Alien Swarm is played from a top-down shooter angle from a 60 degree camera angle, you move your cursor to aim, and can simultaneously walk any direction using the keyboard keys.
Some people have dedicated servers for Alien swarm, however most people will simply host a game from their computer, your latency will depend on the hosts internet settings and physical location.
As you succeed or fail missions you will gain experience, this experience is put towards your level, when you level you unlock new weapons, armor, and tools. There are 25 potential weapons that can be chosen from, including special weapons like sentry guns.

Achievements: There are 66 achievements on Alien Swarm, after your first level you will get a good grasp of the different achievement difficulties, at the time that I'm writing this review, I've earned 53 achievements, most of which were earned either grinding by myself (by using a console command, it's possible to play solo online), or joining small groups online or playing with a friend occasionally.
There are two types of tough achievements: Beat the game on the hardest difficulties, and speed run achievements, both of these require a fairly coordinated group of players to work together and know what they're doing.

Price: The best part about Alien Swarm is that it's completely free! This is probably because the project was scrapped after the first campaign. It's nice that this game is free, but I would have preferred to pay for the game if it had a single player mode and more campaigns.
The good news is Alien Swarm was released with an “Alien Swarm software development kit” which is also free, so the Steam Community could create their own campaigns! Second best thing to the original dev's picking up the project again.

Conclusion: Story: forgettable, but this game is more about the experience then the story narrative. Gameplay: addicting, fun, best to play with friends. Achievements: Many are soloable, you're better off with a group of pug players the easiest difficulty is your best bet if you want to learn the game. Not an easy 100% completed game. Price: Completely free to play.
I love this game, even if it's free to play. I've enjoyed playing this game in between playing other games more vigorously. I recommend this game to anyone who wants a change of pace from the "status quo" of games out there. "This game will specifically appeal to gamers who enjoy dungeon crawlers, third person shooters, and alien kill grinding.

Alien Swarm is proof of Valve's willingness to allow their IP's the experience of rotting to death for their own personal gain via staff resource redistribution. Forget Half-Life 3; if this excellent game could only get a single 15-minute campaign, then there's no more hope for the niche fanbase of Valve's bygone excellence.

Alien Swarm is a freeware top-down shooter video game by Valve Corporation. It's a remake of the Alien Swarm mod for Unreal Tournament 2004 and it was developed by the original team, who were hired by Valve during the course of the development process.

A simple, fun and sometimes madly frustrating game. Personally recommended to play as a team of 4. A somewhat steep learning curve but other then that it will hold solid entertainment for a numerous amount of hours.
