Question What are the best ALIEN(S) video games?

What are the best video games based on The ALIEN SAGA? Whether for PC, X-box, PS2, GameCube & any other game system you can think of. I’ve heard of some, but don’t know which games are the best ones.


KILLZONE (demo) review & commentary in regards to The ALIEN SAGA>

I played the one level KILLZONE demo which came free with other game samples in the PS2 magazine from last month. This demo is not the finished KILLZONE product in stores now, but based on the one level/one mission free demo I played, I give the game a thumbs up.

I bring up KILLZONE, because, in my opinion/viewpoint, if you pretend the game takes place in the same future/universe as The ALIEN SAGA, it makes it even cooler. The environment in the game & the way things look & the planet you’re on in this game is reminiscent of “ALIENS”.

The weaponry, soldiers, etc. Even the ships in the game look like the USS Sulaco’s dropships in “ALIENS”. So, if you want to while playing KILLZONE, you can pretend you are the Space/Colonial Marines from “ALIENS” on a mission.

In conclusion, which ALIEN SAGA based video games have you played, & if you have played ALIEN SAGA based video games, which one(s) are the best to rent &|or buy?

Best game is Alien VS Predator 2.

Played as the marine, of course.

AvP Extinction is also a fun strategy game.

The only one I've played is the Aliens conversion that someone did for Doom2.

Very creepy and the sound effects / voices were straight out of "Aliens".

This was at a time when Doom2 was still a great looking game to play!

Avp2 (like Iwata said, it's great...scary as hell too)
That Alien 3 shoot-'em up from years ago (better than the film)

Re: What are the best ALIEN(S) video games?

Yea, the alltime best Aliens game is "Aliens VS Predator 2."

I have spent long hours playing that game, online or off.

It has some of the most competitive and fun online play I've ever seen, and the graphics really aren't too shabby. Love it.

I had that on my gamegear, it was helluva fun, hated the mess hall levels, loads of nasty jumps, and AVP2 is definatly the best, and it has agood multiplayer too

AvP2, but Idid enjoy Extinction too, tho I think they could have done far more with it.

Re: What are the best ALIEN(S) video games?

Alien triliogy was pretty damn good too, doom-style engine, three chapters
1- weyland yutani base (Aliens)
2- Prison (Alien 3)
3- Bone ship (alien)

I loved it, the story may have been pants (it basically having everything on the same planet) , but it was a fun game
