  • Detailed item info Product Information ALIEN RESURRECTION follows the same basic plot as the film. Scientists are able to bring Lt. Ellen Ripley back from the grave. Unfortunately, they also bring back the acid-spewing menaces that follow her around. As a way of getting rid of the aliens, the installation has been rigged to self-destruct. Take control of Ripley as tries to fight her way through the ship and its unwelcome guests. Use handguns, rifles, auto-turrets, ice blasts, and an ultra powerful flame-thrower to journey through 10 levels of face- huggers, chest-bursters, and other alien warriors. Luckily, several members of the crew have survived, and after Ripley saves one of them, he or she will become a playable character. For the best experience, play the game in the dark and become absorbed by the atmosphere. Play ALIEN RESURRECTION, and help Ripley live to fight another day.

SONY PLAYSTATION GAME NOT PC!!!!!!!

Amazon.com

Take two parts weak plot, a hint of bad controls and crummy auto aiming, add a dash of overdone stretches of boredom amidst short stretches of rather fierce action, and you've got Alien: Resurrection's downside. But here's the upside: these are Ridley Scott's aliens, and they're coming for you relentlessly. The game gives you the heebie-jeebies when you're playing it all alone with the lights turned low. The tension often can become palpable as you reload your weapon, administer a health pack, and pray that the beasts don't hit you from a direction that you hadn't anticipated.

The premise of the game is pretty standard Alien fare: you, as Ripley, are locked in a life-or-death outer-space struggle to keep the devious Dr. Wren from bringing alien samples to earth. What more is there to know?

The atmosphere that's created by Alien: Resurrection's various environments, animations, and sounds is the primary reason to purchase this game. Because it relies heavily on suspense (the sense that these adversaries can be nowhere and everywhere at the same time has never been more real in a game), Alien: Resurrection sometimes can go even beyond what you'd consider merely scary to an entirely new terrorizing experience. The game engine supports all of this with atmospherics like lighting effects, fogging, dripping water (and blood?), and other particle effects, without causing you to endure much--if any--slowdown.

But suspense can go only so far. As in the movies, if the actual confrontations with the aliens don't live up to expectations, the whole game suffers. Even as they start off with a bang, the alien encounters follow a script. After making a dramatic entrance, they mostly just give you the bum's rush without any thought for using available cover, or even jogging from side to side as they advance. With their plodding movements, it's no surprise, when you actually get into the alien firefight that you've been expecting and craving, that the tension completely disappears. --Todd Mowatt

Pros:

  • Genuinely suspenseful
  • Great graphics and atmospherics
Cons:
  • Weak plot, with boring stretches
  • Predictable alien encounters

Fox Interactive and Argonaut have done a praiseworthy job of bringing the second Aliens title to the Sony Playstation. Make no mistake about it - Alien Resurrection is a superbly crafted game, it's intense and atmospheric, possessing in spades the vital ingrediants that any definitive Aliens game requires. The graphics are excellent for the PSX's capabilities, the sound FX and ambience are spot on, the AI is impressive, the weapons beefy, and the Aliens suitably nasty. With ten huge levels of xenomorph-blasting action and some very nice Half-Life-style scripted sequences cutting into the action, this is one game that no Playstation-owning Aliens fan should be without. The ONLY reason I've not given it 5 stars is due to the somewhat fiddly control system - but even that can be overcome with practice and time.

Yes, the controls are hard. Quake II had the best configuration but there are six different settings from which to choose and after the first day you'll get used to them. BUT on that first day I found myself playing the same levels 8 or 9 times just trying to survive! It was fun, it was very scary, but it was just too damn hard! So, I highly recommend that you do as I did right from the start: Set the difficulty on Easy and use the Cheats to give yourself unlimited ammo. Conserving ammo during an intense firefight is not my idea of fun. Get yourself the shotgun and blast away! This also solves the problem trying to aim the cross-hair while running for your life! And those pesky face huggers! Ack! You'll need diapers when they attach themselves to your screaming face! This is a nice game. If you want a shooter that is almost as good as Quake II look no further. Just give yourself a fighting chance: tune the difficulty down and tune the violence up!

I got a little excited for the new Alien game coming out next fall (Alien Isolation) so I purchased this. Despite its age it's still worth a scare. People say the controls are confusing but if you've played a first person shooter in the past thirteen years then it's the same. Movement is based on the same dual analog system that Halo and Call of Duty and so many others use. Though movement and aiming is hindered by aged sensitivity and not crisp with pinpoint accuracy like the new games it's still easy for today's gamers to get their heads around. The graphics are good for back then I suppose but very blocky. All in all I would say it's the best installment in the Alien video game franchise, though I haven't played all of them so don't quote me.

Alien Resurrection has to be my favorite Alien movie of the legacy and I was very pleased with the game. Sure, its a PS1 game but that doesn't change the fact that it is a great game. I think that the controls are great and very easy (unlike other reviewers). Many people have complained that using two analog sticks to move(one moves and strafes, the other looks)is tough but if you have ever played Max Payne on PS2, then I'm sure you'll get along just fine with these controls. As for the rest of the game, it is truely a masterpiece. The atmosphere is great and you actually feel that you are in the USM Auriga, traveling through the dark, seemingly abandoned tunnels, trying to escape the horrifying aliens that appear out of the shadows. There is no music (which adds suspense and panic), just the sounds of the creaky hull of the ship, Father: the super computers voice, and the breath of the nearby aliens. The sounds are actually recorded from the movie itself! The graphics are just the normal PS1 graphics you see in most PS1 games but they are just fine with me. The aliens can walk, jump, spit acid, communicate with eachother, and even crawl on walls and ceilings! And not only are there your standard aliens, but there are facehuggers that actually latch on to your face and put a chest burster in you that will explode from your chest after a while! Cool! And of course, as you've guessed, the alien queen and the newborn are in the game as well. This game is recommended to be played in the dark and it should be. It scares me to death in a good way in the dark and it makes you feel even more "in the game" in the dark. This is a must have game for any alien fan or just anyone who likes 1st person shooters. Go buy this game!! You won't be disappointed...

Last month I posted a retrospective for The Playstation 1 & I said I was going to do reviews on some of the games & this is 1 of them & it fits for October cause this is a very suspenseful game on it takes on The USM Arigia just like the movie only this game is better than the movie cause instead having humor uses suspense & it's on a dark ship so you need your flashlight. & you start off with a hand gun & a Shotgun as you go on you'll get your hands on a Pulse Rifle it's really an M 60. You start off playing as Ripley Clone 8 where you get in contact with Call The Android character from the movie where where you have to send off a Lifeboat that's stuck. Levels 3 & 4 have you back in the role of Ripley where you're going around destroying the rejected Ripley clones. This also is where you have your 1st encounter with The Face Huger's in this game & they are relentless they're harder to kill in than they were in Alien Trilogy or Aliens Colonial Marines even than they were in AVP 2010. If you're face hugged & you don't have a Portable Auto Doc then you're s crew e d so if come across a save state thing do it! Plus when you're face hugged & have an Alien in you you can't activate switches & buttons or use elevator's there's cheats too so you can turn off The Chest Busting. Not only that you have human enemies too such as these Army guys on The USM Arigia. Also in level 4 you face The Alien Queen that didn't happen in the movie. In Level 5 you play as Destpheno you have to get The Father Computer online again. You have a Grenade Launcher now & this handles enemies a lot easier as well as getting rid of the eggs.Read more ›
