Aliens: Fireteam Elite … Technically The Best New Aliens Game

Damning With Faint Praise, Or Time To Lock And Load

The exception that proves the rule came from a very different type of game for this franchise; Alien: Isolation did receive great reviews from players but it was very different from previous games that were set in Ridley Scott’s famous universe.  The previous release was Aliens: Colonial Marines, which was so bad Sega agreed to pay $1.25 million to a class action lawsuit, though apparently fixing a typo makes the game slightly less horrendous.

A part of the problem is the unbelievably good job the original game did at capturing the feeling of the film in single player and offering a multiplayer experience unmatched at the time.  Then we ended up with hybrid Predaliens with laser eyes and from there the franchise produced far more flops than successes; partial or otherwise.

TweakTown tried out the newest release from this franchise, Aliens: Fireteam Elite.  The game is pure multiplayer, letting you pick from a variety of customizable classes to face off against endless hordes of Aliens.  The environs certainly seem to offer an atmosphere worth of Giger, with the 3rd person gameplay giving you a better look at it than first person; at the cost of abandoning that iconic FPS view.

Take a look through their review and see if you are ready to risk purchasing a new Aliens title.

Aliens: Fireteam Elite is ultra-chaotic, thrilling, and intensely fun, making it the best Aliens shooter on the market today.
