Sometimes you just want to shoot some aliens

These are the best looking top down shooters I have played, but really these games tend to be the same for me, games that you just pick up when you just feel like mindlessly shooting some monsters, zombies seem to be the main fodder for this type of game, but Team 17 opted for aliens, the change allowed for some nice thematic environments and weapons, the run and gun gameplay feels solid, the movement is smooth and the shooting is satisfying, but again the main draw to these game over others in the same genre is the graphics, the games are simply beautiful, but it also nails the mechanics as well, and all-around fun way to waste some time.

You get exactly what you expect!

Once in a while, I simply want to play a game where I do not really need to think and I just walk around shooting things, and this is exactly it. The Alien Breed series doesn't offer anything new that we've not seen countless times in games like these, but the games do run beautifully, with excellent visuals for the genre and a nice soundtrack that fits the bill. Yes they are mindless games, but sometimes, that is exactly what we want. The Gameplay is very well executed, and I never had a moment where I felt that my character got in the way of my doing what I needed to do, and that's really the only possible complaint I may have about a game like one of these, they delivered on what all the promises. So if I compare these game to all games in general, they aren't anything special, but within their specific genre, the games are excellent!

It's an alien themed action shooter... end of story

Ok so these games don't give way much in terms of individuality... but they look great and play like a dream. i think the whole space alien thing died out for me a few years ago though and thats why i don't enjoy these as much as i should, but over all they are still amazing games and need to be played. the amount of detail and texture in the graphics is unbelievable, and even the character movement and shooting mechanics feel perfect in all of these...i guess when you don't have a very interesting story line you need those kinds of things. Worth playing, but i would wait for a sale. 20 bucks still feels high for an iso action shooter.
