The storyline is average with below average voice acting. Cut-scenes are done in a comic book style without the borders.

You get to play as Aileen, even in multiplayer. Choose from 5 classes but they will still appear to be Aileen in multiplayer but it doesn't really matter after you get your armor on. Graphics are a low polygon rate and is maybe below that of a gamecube but this is because the Wii's processing power is not so great; I've had a few slowdowns when there were 7-8 monsters on the screen with explosions going off.

You can use the melee weapon or ranged weapon. The melee weapon uses the B button and wiimote swings, which can also be combined to form combos after you upgrade your melee proficiency. Ranged weapons are aimed with a crosshair on the screen and your character is moved using the nunchuk. Controls aren't that intuitive but it'll take 30 min or less to get used to. Managing your inventory and character is pretty simple as you can scroll through the panels and each skill and stat is explained.

Camera control is done by tilting the nunchuk. Harder to do in multiplayer since almost everyone has to be huddled up or the camera will not turn or spin. Not much of a problem most of the time.

The game is fairly easy but you need to pay attention as to not get mobbed and casually check your health points. You have energy points which powers Energy weapons and your shields which are activiated by C button. The shield absorbs an amount of damage or until the time runs out. There are destructible objects but they are simple boxes or explosive gas tanks.

Sega's re-imagining of their classic arcade title ends up being sadly disappointing, as Alien Syndrome comes to the Wii. Playing as gun-toting heroine Aileen, you blast your way through hordes of repetitive mutant aliens. What really hurts Alien Syndrome the most is said repetitiveness, and it comes in more ways than just alien blasting: from the level design to the combat elements, Alien Syndrome recycles itself from beginning to end. The Wii controls sort of work well when it comes to aiming and shooting, but it doesn't take long for pure boredom to set in. The RPG elements that are inserted don't really amount to a whole lot either, and actually seem as more of an afterthought for the most part. All in all, Alien Syndrome may seem like a little bit of fun at first, and it is for a brief time, but sadly wears down into an exercise in monotony. It may be worth checking out for fans of the original arcade game, but all others should avoid.

It really reminds me of the Gauntlet games, which were great for their simplicity. You and some friends gather 'round and kick the snot out of an endless supply of baddies. The diversity of character development allowed in the game helps, too. Things get easier if you use some brains, which is always nice, but if you just feel like plowing through, it's more than possible. Playing single player really isn't the game's strong point, as it's too repetitive and the cut scenes are too lame to engage you. If you've got the controllers and the friends (even just one), this game is well worth your time. It may not be worth the money, though, due to the lack of replay value, so this is probably a rental.

I have played the arcade game of the same name, and this game has some similarities to it but what this game has to offer is so much more then the mindless arcade game style of gameplay. In this game you will actually get through most areas without dying because of the rpg style gameplay instead of having to pump quarters to continue after getting killed easily at the first boss in the arcade game. This game is a dungeon crawler/rpg shooter not the arcade game so if you don't like those types of games then you won't like this game like I did. This game really got me addicted because most everything about it I really liked. First of all the graphics on this game aren't the greatest but they aren't hard on the eyes either and are done pretty well. I really enjoy changing the armor and weapons and that it shows the changes on the on screen character even though the character sprite isn't very big. The areas, enemies, and terrain etc.. etc.. look pretty awesome, and have some nice detail to them. Also the different weapon blasts, explosions, etc... look pretty awesome and sound really good. The Sound in the game isn't hard on the ears either, and isn't dull and sickening which I really like and kept me coming back for more. The controls are pretty well done and make full use of the Wii remote and nunchuk capabilities, and do it really well. The controls are somewhat easy to get used to with some small annoyances. One annoyance I had was when I would accidently turn the nunchuk to the side while resting my hand which would cause the screen to spin in circles. They made it so the nunchuk pans the camera when you turn your hand to the left or to the right.Read more ›
