The Video Game Critic (Dec 18, 2001)
There are some really nice animations in this game. Aliens melt when shot. Limbs are blown off of soldiers. Water skiers hold their nose before falling into the water. You'll even see water-skiing aliens! My complaints are very minor. There is some slowdown when many objects are on the screen. Also, aliens don't bunch up enough to make grenades particularly useful. Alien Brigade is a nice addition to your Atari 7800 collection - if you can find it. It took me over a year to acquire a good copy.
The reason why I give this shooter high ratings is due to the incredible gameplay. Although repetitious in nature, the selection of weapons along with a high volume of activity and very pleasing graphics support this exceptional effort by Atari. I could pop this cart in at any time, time and time again without getting bored.
This is a perfect game for introducing others to the Atari 7800. Its combination of intuitive play and engaging graphics make for instant fun.
