This is another installment of Sigma's top-down shooter games, and it takes many attributes from the original Alien Shooters and drops them into this game. A lot of changes have been made, though the game is still essentially the same. Character leveling and weapons have been improved, but it still makes the game too easy. For example, the starting handgun is basically a hand cannon.
The campaign is certainly longer, so that's a bonus, though it's still a very short game. Graphic settings are interestingly non-existent (resolution + "show blood"), and don't seem to scale well to widescreen displays.
It's a solid arcade style shooter, but again like the other Alien/Zombie Shooter games from Sigma, the campaign is a bit on the short side. But the inexplicable number of monsters blowing up left, centre, and right of you more than make up for the short campaign.

Similar to other Alien Shooter games from the same series as well as the continuation of them. The game packs some action RPG element with its gameplay. A simple and quick birds eye view click and go shooter. Perfect game to spend a little time on and then move on since the game itself is very short. Although the gameplay could get repetitive but it wouldn't be for long since the duration of the game is not long at all. Great game for older system though so if you are looking for some mindless shooting with an older pc build then give this a try.

A sequel to the original and right from the get go you are faced with hordes of aliens that would just love to taste your blood, fortunately they are easily disposed of with one of the many types of guns at your disposal ranging from simple handguns to futuristic cannons. As you work you way trough the sixteen missions you can upgrade your gear at shops or if you get lucky you might find something better, though my experience is that it doesnt happen often and so you mostly rely on the shop for equipment upgrades.
The single player campaign is sadly only four to five hours long however offer a survival mode in which you can try to set the highest score holding out as long as possible against an endless stream of aliensThe game has a nice storyline though be it simple, it even has an alternate ending, it does lack any cinematics but does pretty well without them nonetheless. Worth it at a cheap price

New chapter of the esteemed saga shooter with a top view of the house Sigma Team, unashamedly retro in setting but with a considerable depth - thanks to the skill of the characters - and characterized by amount of blood, dismemberment and explosions on the screen. The game, in addition to the single player campaign, has other game modes (in addition to multiplayer) as the survival. The game features a mode very similar to the old glories of the past, albeit with graphics more suited to today's standards, that will satisfy fans and nostalgic, but may disappoint those accustomed to more challenging games.

Make no mistake, this is one bloody game. If you're into bits and pieces flying everywhere, Alien Shooter: Vengeance may just be for you. The simple gameplay belies a rather immersive and addictive little game, and there's far more here than the price point hints at.
Graphically, the game does look like an older title, but the details are very much in the blood and gore. Basically, there's all these ravenous extraterrestrial beings, and you need to kill them. Blood is everywhere with this one, and it stays put after battle, too. Your environment changes, and is truly what you make of it. Controls are well laid-out, and the sound gets the job done, but is mostly forgettable.
If you're a fan of such games as Alien Swarm and Shadowgrounds, you can't go wrong with a purchase of this title.
