Did You Know?


The story of the game is somewhat based off of the original concept story of Alien³ (1992) where Cpl. Hicks and another team of Colonial Marines discover a top secret research facility by Weyland-Yutani that is focused on using the Aliens as Bio-Weapons. See more »


Hicks' clothes change from what he is wearing in cut scenes to what he is wearing in actual game play. See more »


Pvt. Peter O'Neal: [the door opens, and O'Neal spots a scientist and slams him into a wall and then pins him to the operating table] You make a fuckin' sound. Your brains are what they find in the garbage tomorrow, not if you understand asshole.
[to Bella]
Pvt. Peter O'Neal: Bella, lay down on the table.
[Winter helps Bella on the operating table]
Pvt. Peter O'Neal: She had uh, she had one of those Facehuggers, it left a baby one in her chest, how do you get it out?
Weyland-Yutani Scentist: You, you, you, you can't.
Pvt. Peter O'Neal: Wrong answer!
Weyland-Yutani Scentist: Please, please, please, please, please, please. ...

Playable but only just
8 July 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The first thing you will notice is the absolutely dated textures, some fancy new design would have been nice as well but they have paid some attention to detail. Admittedly the game does look rather bland in 2D but crank up the 3D eyewear and it looks quite good. Its rather surprising that this game has garnered so many negs as it really isn't all that bad. There are some quite tense moments where you are just waiting for a face-hugger to suck your face off but all in all It looks as though they threw something together just to cash in. Actually playing the game isn't all that bad. Other game manufacturers go all the way and pay so much attention to detail but not so this crowd. For instance a lot of the time you are shooting at an Alien and your team mate gets in the way - other games you would be severely admonished "Hey stop shooting at me"! but this one your team mates don't mind. (so much for reality) NVidia rate this game as average in the 3D rating but I found it virtually unplayable until I downloaded the Helix fix. If you want to play in 3D it is recommended that you apply this fix. You need to be slightly higher than a casual PC user in expertise to be able to extract the fix to the proper directory but it is well worth doing as before the fix, lights from other marines helmets were on the wrong plane and torchlights were in 2D - the whole thing looked messed up. Do a web search for Helix 3d fix etc, its only a tiny 33KB download. Why cant you simply install a game on Steam without having to perform an hour of updates? That is so annoying especially if you only play the single player campaign. The majority of the updates are probably multiplayer fixes. Don't be put off by the negative reviews, its worth a look just buy it when the price has gone down to $20.00 or so, maybe get it from a bargain basement seller! If 6.5 out of ten were there that would be my rating maybe even 7!
