The best film tie-in to date, and a good game to boot.

It's only 40 minutes since the crew left the Mobile tactical Operations Bay, and already four are dead. Burke and Gorman were killed by the aliens, Vasquez was impregnated by a face-hugger and Hicks walked into some acid blood. He boiled instantly.
Cette adaptation possède une ambiance captivante. Si l'on reste loin de l'angoisse du grand écran, la gestion simultanée des six membres de l'équipage nécessite autant de réflexes que de stratégie. Le graphisme du C 64 met bien en valeur cet univers lugubre. Aliens est une bonne simulation.
