I love the Alien films, I love these because of the monster in them, the Xenomorph. This monster has been rather abused lately with the number of terrible films and games to feature it in, I’m looking at your Aliens vs Predator Requiem. I therefore want to show fellow Xenomorph fans that there is hope by showing you 5 good games to feature these acid filled sweeties.
Aliens: Infestation (DS)
This game is the closest you will ever get to feeling like your one of the poor marines from the second film. I love this game and so many ideas are just gold. The Xenomorphs in this game are hard with each one having the ability to kill your characters if your not paying attention, this is how it should be! The worst thing with dying is your characters will not come back, they are dead for good so you need to keep finding and rescuing more soldiers to help you make it though the game. This game is as hard as nails but the closest you will get to being in an Alien film!
Alien Vs Predator (PS3, Xbox 360, PC)
This game may get a lot of flack however I must say it does a brilliant job of showing you how it is to be both fighting a Xenomorph or fighting as a Xenomorph. The campaign as a human feels simple and fun. I like this as it is not overly complex and looks amazing, it is just fun.
While playing as a Xenomorph you feel like the deadly hunter the films paint you as. I love how fast the gameplay is and the animations are all deadly and gruesome. This game is not perfect, it lacks length, the Predators never really turn up fully in any other campaign other than their own. While not perfect it is fun so if you have not I would check this out!
Alien Trilogy (PS1)
I have spoke about this game before but its good so I will say it again. This game is simple, you can’t even look up or down and I like this. The gameplay feels very much like the first Doom game but with Xenomorphs and androids instead of Demons. I will just say you will need your pink acid boots for this game and by that I mean google the cheats if you want to get past level 5.
