With a wonderful array of weapons, non-stop action, splendid graphics, eerie music and a wonderful adventure setting, Alien Shooter is a game that delivers on every front. Another reason I suggest that you immediately buy the game instead of playing the demo is that this is a game where the demo just doesn't give you nearly enough insight into the game. From the moment the freaky music of the full version came on after I fired the full version up, I knew that there was a lot in the full version that I hadn't even guessed on. My original reason for wanting to try the full version was to check out the turret guns you get to sit in. I wouldn't have guessed how much more cool stuff I would get.

The graphics are great, but I guess a little old school as they are pixel art (no 3D card effects are used). The sound effects do the job and the music is fine – it’s one long music track which is part techno and part metal. The scrolling is totally smooth on my PC (P4 3.2GHz) and there was no slow down at any time even though tons was going on. My two only criticisms are that there was no real change in scenery, it was the same alien base the entire time, and that the game was too short really – I blasted through it in a couple of intense hours. However, there are mission packs that you can buy for it called The Experiment ($14.95 - 5 levels) and Fight for Life ($12.50 - 5 levels) which could be worth checking out. Anyway, a thoroughly enjoyable game, I totally recommend it, and so I’m gonna give it a great score.

Всего два слова: очень весело. Примитивный геймплей благодаря отличной реализации доставляет массу удовольствия, заканчиваясь именно тогда, когда нам становится немного скучно. Нужно только чуть-чуть подлатать визуальную часть, и Alien Shooter 2 сможет похвастаться заслуженным «Нашим выбором».

Tutto sommato, vi consiglio caldamente Alien Shooter, soprattutto se avete amato il vecchio Doom della id poiché, sebbene sostanzialmente diversi, condividono la stessa frenesia e la medesima immediatezza di gioco. Sicuramente un ottimo titolo.

You may think the game looks a bit old-hat, but I can assure you the gameplay is anything but. Sadly, what the game does lack is a multiplayer mode - but for this price, Alien Shooter is excellent value even without it.

Złożoność rozgrywki nie jest najmocniejszą stroną Alien Shooter, dlatego też na pewno nie przypadnie do gustu osobom wymagającym czegoś więcej, niż tylko bezmyślnego strzelania do Obcych. Dla pozostałych graczy, który - wręcz przeciwnie - pragną zagłębić się w czymś prostym i relaksującym, produkt Sigma Team będzie w sam raz. Jeśli masz 10 wolnych złociszy, przeleć się od kiosku. Wraz z płytą otrzymasz kilkanaście drobnych gierek. Może i nie najwyższych lotów, ale umilą czas w momentach totalnej nudy.

Alien Shooter ist klar schlechter als sein Nachfolger, sowohl spielerisch als auch inhaltlich. Der Zahn der Zeit nagte selbstverständlich auch an diesem Produkt, was den Spielspass an sich aber nicht beeinflusst. Wer dieses Spielprinzip (Shooter in isometrischer Perspektive) mag, sollte gleich zu Alien Shooter 2 (siehe unser Test) greifen, wer für ein paar Euro seine Spielesammlung um ein weiteres Exemplar isometrischer Action erweitern will, kann hier beruhigt zugreifen, muss sich aber auch darüber im Klaren sein, dass er das Spiel mitsamt all seiner Macken kauft.

While the game does have some depth to it--you can purchase additional weapons--the action is generally unsatisfying, though the way that all the corridors get smeared with alien corpses and blood after a prolonged firefight at least looks nice.

Eigentlich ist „Alien Shooter“ doofe Trash-Software. Aber verflixt, das Ding macht trotzdem Spaß. Wenn ich aus allen Rohren feuernd durch die hinwegspritzenden Gegnermassen voranschreite, hat das irgendwas. Wer meint, ihm könnte es auch so gehen, legt 15 € beiseite. Alle anderen halten die Finger still.
