Scary, but nothing more
Alien Trilogy is a first-person shooter game based on the Alien movies, released in 1996 by Acclaim Entertainment. Well, this game annoyed me a lot, and impeded me to enjoy it. The aliens I had to defeat were faster than me, your weapons are useless, and you don't have an aim point when you shoot. Totally frustrating! So, you basically shoot randomly, and this lead to a massive loss of munition. Wow, the producers were very "inspired ", what can I say. The only salvation is represented by the use of cheat codes, especially those for Unlimited Ammo. The weapons used in the game are: a 9mm automatic, a shotgun, flame-thrower, pulse rifle, smart gun. The levels reside in collecting items, blowing roadblocks, basically exploring and killing the hideous creatures: facehuggers, alien queens, chestbursters, dog aliens. The saving is possible only between the levels, so spend your ammo carefully and take care not to be weighed down. The graphics are good, due to the detailed explosions, the bloody and splash effects in the process of killing the enemies. I admit that the empty and dark corridors scared the hell out of me, and I was surprised by the sudden appearances of the creatures from those areas. As a conclusion, I have a hint for you: when you are attacked by a facehugger just be careful not to shoot your brains out, haha!
