I remember this game, do you?
4 Star Review   By member greggworldwide - Aug 5, 2008   

Strengths: Low price, in depth character upgrade system. FUN to play!

Weakness: Graphics are retro, Original game not included, repetitive.

If you remember, and enjoyed the original, you should like this one! But don't expect them to include the original game. It should of been an unlockable at least! This one has taken more of a RPG style of play to it. No great storyline or any referance to the original game. Its now low price makes it worth add to your collection! Does get repetitive, with the killing of the same old aliens. The graphics could of had more attention paid to them as they are lacking, but gives it a retro feel.

Are you guys playing the same game as I am?!
2 Star Review   By member RebateHope01 - Apr 6, 2008   

Strengths: Responsive controls, multiplayer support

Weakness: Weak storyline, murky graphics, monotonous combat, repeating enemies, original Alien Syndrome not included, no online play

With the popularity of Nintendo's Wii system with consumers, third party publishers have had a field day dumping shovelware onto the system in hopes of making money. It's especially disappointing when a solid publisher like Sega updates an arcade classic to resemble the other weak third party offerings. Most players don't expect a decent story with their third-person shooters, but they do expect quality graphics and exciting shootouts with a variety of enemies. Unfortunately, the graphics here are dull and monotonous, and the generic enemies repeat again and again. Sega didn't have the courtesy to include the original Alien Syndrome arcade game as an unlockable, so young players won't have any frame of reference for where the series came from. It's tough to justify paying full price for this. Series fans may want to rent it, but everyone else should look for their shooting fun elsewhere.

Average fun for an average priced game
3 Star Review     

Strengths: One of the cheaper games available for the Wii. Very easy to control, unlike many other Wii games. Multiplayer gameplay is possible.

Weakness: Blah graphics. Nothing to make this title stand out. Repetitive.

This game is definitely fun to play but there is nothing special about it that makes it stand out from the crowd. Neither the story line nor the graphics aren't particularly good and there is nothing that gives this game a rating over average. But the game play is easy to follow and the controls are very intuitive as opposed to many other Wii games which I found very hard to master. You play as Aileen and can choose to equip her in five different styles with different strengths and different weapons (Seal, Sharpshooter, Tank, Firebug, Demolition expert). Then you pretty much just walk around shooting different aliens. You also have a flying robot that accompanies you and can help you in a few ways such as helping to shoot enemies. There are a number of mini-games to play which require more specialized control of the wii motion sensors. If you can win, you can improve your characters stats. But overall, it is a little repetitive by having to kill the same monsters over and over again.

The title made me remember the alien syndrome from the original NES
4 Star Review   By member thelunds - Dec 9, 2007   

Strengths: Good graphics better than the original NES game, but then again most graphics are better than the original game

this game was fun and enjoyable for the whole family. follows the theme from the original NES game, but has more action, more weapons and I was able to play the game with my teenage sons with much laughter :) The game is worth the price and will bring hours of enjoyment. Ages 14-48 played this at my home and it was fun.

This game is so sweet
5 Star Review   By member Creendude - May 7, 2007   

Strengths: The strengths is the gameplay and everything else about it.

Weakness: When I seen the videos from it I liked everything that they are going to offer on July something of this year.So yeah I find no weaknesses about this.This game will rock my socks forever.

This game reminds me of the Contra series so that was the first turn on that made me interested in owning this game later.I will try buying this game the first day it comes out because I can afford it because I work and I have the money for my entertainment.So I can't wait for this re-make in a better graphical way and everything else different that they added since the past.
