Alien Breed: Impact is a fun but short top down shooter. I liked the artwork and the weapon sounds. The co-op campaign is without a doubt the most challenging part of the game because not only do you not have control over the camera but you have to share everything with your partner. Unfortunately unlike the singleplayer campaign there isn't a whole lot of different enemy types and its only three levels long. The singleplayer has a lot of backtracking in every level which did feel pretty repetitive after awhile. I thought the camera control could've been better. The story isn't great and has been done before but its okay because this isn't the type of game you play for a story. Overall this is a pretty fun game but its not very long.
Can'T really recommend it. It's a decent top down survival-ish shooter, but I honestly found Alien Swarm (which is free!) to be better in every way (besides not having singleplayer)... so... I don't really see a reason to buy this, especially at this price. You can get much better games for that price (un)fortunately
You should play Alien Breed as a whole. This first part of the game is the worst, but you should go for it if you want to enjoy the whole experience. The game is fun, specially if you haven't played too many isometric/top down shooters. The problem is that what you get during the first hour of gameplay is the same thing that you'll get in its last minutes. There is no evolution in gameplay, and it is so simple you won't change your mind anywhere in the game. Second and third games from the series are just better.
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 - Plain boring - 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 3/10
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.
