Just plain out boring.
I couldn't even bare an hour of this thing. Alien Breed: Impact isn't an action game it's a point and click adventure in an action games clothing. All you ever seem to do is find out something doesn't work, find the object that makes it work when you rub them together then proceed to the next thing that doesn't work; oh wait there's aliens, don't forget the aliens. The aliens in it really it has nothing to offer for you, the aliens are far from scary, laughable even I hadn't even realised that they were supposed to be the enemies because of how lackluster they were. The environment are just linear corridors and I swear all the lighting effects are just there to mask how drab and boring the game looks as a whole. You could have the same amount of fun playing this buy going through your system files one by one then stopping ever now and then to grab a pair of keys shove them into your screen and making gargling alien sounds. On the plus side there were no bugs encountered during my small amount of time playing this product.
So just keep moving there is nothing to see here.
Didn't encounter any bugs
- Aliens aren't scary and there just to waste time
- Level design and level mechanics (find something to make something work) are tedious
- Unpleasing to your eyes

The Good: -Graphic Novel 'cinematics' look great and help the story unfold. The Bad: -Go Fetch type of gameplay do not suit the game and becomes tiresome very quickly. -Even before halfway through the game, you want it to end due to its repetitiveness and lack of difficulty.
Better than i expectedTGAlan | July 11, 2013 | See all TGAlan's reviews »
The experience exceed the expectation. I thought it was going to be real horrible but it is not bad just hard. Yes but it is hard so i might stop after a while. This game is better than swarm in reborn during game for coop and ammo u can get more but bad at too many hordes of aliens and finding the torch to achieve objective is hard. I got what i paid for. I like the ammo finding and more ammo and credit to upgrade and to get more ammo. I did not like the fast hordes too quickly. I would recommend my friend if they like aliens killing and top down shooter.

Alien Breed: Impact is the first episodes of the new Alien Breed trilogy which is the 21st century remake of the oldie, well known franchise of the same name. While the game is capable to grab the player from the beginning, its fast paced and has a story to tell, it has its faults which is coming out in the gameplay itself. The controls are responsive, but if you ever played with Shadowgrounds, you would wish a similar controls instead of the one you have here, namely the camera and character control. Unlike in Shadowgrounds where you was able to attach the camera rotation to the character, here you have to rotate the camera independent from the character, which is a bit flustrating at few places, especially at one place where you have to escape from an enemy and the camera controls is very annoying. The storyline is offering a mystery as your starship, the cruiser Leopold is crashing into a larger unknown craft. Right after that hell spreads all over your ship as aliens starts to decimate the surviving members of your crew. You, Chief Engineer Conrad have to find out what this space ship of alien origin is, while you also have to ensure the safety of the Leopold. As Alien Breed is an episodic release, you'll get all your answers in the second and third episodes, but unfortunately as you step onboard the alien ship in the first episode, Impact, some of the textures of the alien ship is spoiling some twists from the later episodes. The game itself is a simple fastpaced shooter, with five huge levels to discover and the episode ends with a cliffhanger (Each episodes have 5 levels, so the whole game is 15 levels long.). In the game you may gather credits to buy ammo and upgrade weapons, even sentry guns, while you have to repair critical elements of your space ship and fight your way through dozens of waves of alien hordes. The atmosphere is good, the environment is detailed and beautiful for this game, but the game can be a bit repetative at times. It's a decent shooter, which is not great, but its still a good experience in the very rare sci-fi, top-down isometric survivor shooter genre. But if you loved the original series or if you ever loved Shadowgrounds, give a try for Alien Breed: Impact.

This title is a "modern interpretation" of a classic from the past, do not expect some kind of novelty. The gameplay is really simple: Conrad, helped by radio communications - that we will see on the screen in the form of post-, will go far and wide for each of the 5 layers that make up the game. Each level corresponds to a different area of the ship. We start the exploration by going to a point A, and then find a point B, and then get to a point C. The alien monsters are of different types: there are those little ones, more 'annoying than dangerous, who kill with a single gunshot, "standard" ones, that look like cockroaches, and the much more' stronger, because they are more 'fast and why they are also able to "shoot" some clothes (gas, spores, etc. ..). The weapons can be collected around the ship, or to be purchased in the shop that are also save points. Graphically, the setting is changed from the original 90s: top view, yes, but in isometric style.
