Alien Breed 3: Descent is by far the best game in the trilogy, but alas it is also the shortest. Thankfully it’s been a sweet ride along the way; one filled with suspense, action and imaginative environments to run around. You will be content but not entirely impressed and left with the feeling that this trilogy, despite being an excellent homage, was perhaps a little half-hearted.
Alien Breed 3: Descent was released 23 February 2011 on the Playstation Network and can be downloaded for a mere £7.19 which is a respectfully decent price for the game itself which is also the same price for each of the other chapters. So if you are looking for a quick alien fix that isn’t overly expensive and is a gaming classic then this trilogy is best suited for you. The game would of warranted a higher score if it had not been for the camera issue and slight lack of re-playable time, overall decent game.
Alien Breed 3: Descent tops off Team17's revival fittingly enough. It's atmospheric, lengthy and ultimately enjoyable though it does little to build upon its heritage, either of the 1991 original or the two games preceding it. For 800 Microsoft Points it's hard to quibble at what's a sturdy if unimaginative old school shooter, but its stubborn faith in the original template only goes to show how far we've come.
What you get is a game that looks fine, plays a-okay but just falls short of delivering the goods. It's not a disaster by any shot, but it just doesn't have the oomph you feel it could have. On the plus side it is cheap, just 6.99 in the UK on the PSN, so at least you won't feel ripped off price wise. I know some of you will think that this is a short review but I have reported all that there is to report for the most part. It is fun and challenging but it gets repetitive to say the least and my interest sometimes wavered. If the online community warms too the game then multiplayer Space Hulk style conflicts could be on the cards but it seems to have escaped notice so far. It's a shame that this game promises more than it actually offers.
Het is Team17 niet gelukt om een buitenaards goed spel te maken, maar ze hebben ook zeker niet gefaald. De game doet in principe namelijk niets fout, maar blinkt tegelijkertijd ook nergens in uit. Het verhaal is zo dun als een zijdedraadje en net als in de vorige delen is variatie in de singleplayer weer ver te zoeken. De co-op zorgt voor aardig wat extra speeluurtjes na de vijf uur durende singleplayer. Vernieuwingen ten opzichte van het vorige deel zijn echter moeilijk te vinden. Je kunt het spel dan ook moeilijk een verbetering noemen.
For a budget title, AB3:D is mostly worth the $10 price tag. It’s a good-looking Unreal-Engine shooter, albeit somewhat repetitive, and tends to embrace the pros and cons of survival horror gameplay. If the first two Alien Breed games appealed to you, then there’s no reason you won’t enjoy AB3:D. On the flipside, if either of the first games turned you off in visual style, gameplay, or the like, then AB3:D most likely won’t be your cup of tea since most of the game is unchanged from the previous two.
