This game is GARBAGE!!!!!!
I love my Wii more than all of my other things combined. Alien Syndrome made me rethink this statement. When I first bought this game I was so exited to go home and play it. The game description was very well done and would trick even the most hardcore gamers into getting this game. I soon realized that the game would make a better pizza cutter than a Wii game. It was seriously, the worst game I have ever played. I was truly disgusted. This was the easiest game in the world. I had no trouble beating the enemies. The only thing that made it a challenge was the camera. The camera was directly above the player and you couldn't see anything around you. The graphics were LAME! I could hardly tell what anything was. As far as I was concerned, it was a pathetic attempt at making at making a computer generated alien. They all looked like square blobs! The producers were too lazy to add a decent story line. Your stuck on a ship with some poorly animated monsters. Big deal! The controls just didn't feel right. I would have changed the entire layout. In the weapons menu, it was all so complicated. I couldn't figure it out. Everyone knows that the Wii speaker on the Wii remote sounds like a child's blaster. Imagine that, only ALL of the sounds had that kind of quality (Or lack of it). There wasn't even background music. You can't even finish the game because it's so bad. You will play this game for thirty seconds, at max, and decide that this game is worthless. Alien Syndrome was by far the worst game I have ever played. If you have some spare money and you want to buy this game, burn it instead. You will get more enjoyment out of lighting your hard earned cash on fire than wasting it on this piece of garbage!
50-50% chance of a good game
This game looks good but I don't like the way the video looks and I'm not so sure exactly what they mean by customizable Power Ups or Actual Visual Changes The website can be found at www.sega.com/aliensyndrome I also don't really like the main character. If she looked more like the famed Samus Aran (A.K.A. Metriod Prime) then I would think of getting it more The graphics are good and not anything to worry about but a slight factor on the overall gameplay (Not the shooting, the shooting is good) By that I mean the powers/ enemies/ story/ Multi-Player/ Co-op/ etc. Don't forget to write your thoughts on the game here at Gamestop (Not in anyway related to gamestop)
I agree with shooteriswrong.... don't post fakies. One thing though. It doesn't matter how many good previews a game gets, especially this one, because it looks like a Nintendo stab at Outerspace Shooters. They did good with Metroid, but any other games of the genre from them... I think it will be pretty much the same. Different characters, of course, but it will all be utilized on Nintendos single deciding factor: the remote. That motion sensor is what makes it all happen. Take away that, its gonna be a horrible game. We'll just have to see. SC
Classic Example on Why Remakes are Bad
When i bought this game, i was lulled into believing that this was a good re-incarnation of the Sega classic which hit arcades back in 1987. But what i got instead was a shameless re-make which takes place 100 years after the events of the original Alien Syndrome, and to top it all off, it's more of a hack-and-slash like the 3D Gauntlet games (Legends and Dark Legacy). As if that wasn't enough, you'll find yourself waving the wii remote frantically trying to figure out what to do.
Well... ok well last time nintendo released a re-make of an old game it was Excite Truck. Which i guess ok to good. But in this case im not to sure. Nintendo hasnt done to good on shooters this season. So i guess all we have to do is wait for the in-game preveiws to come out then we cross our fingers. Good Gaming, Cageddog
i don't know.....
This game DOES have potential, but as has already been said, so far Wii shooters havn't been all that great. It could end up being an amazing, must-buy game for Wii owners, or it could end up being a total waste of money, i'll at least rent it, ans see if it's good enough to buy. Definetly not worth a pre-order, rent when it comes out then decide. I'll post a review after playing it
people that give this game a bad preveiw they do not have a wii this will be a good game. if you have a wii this will be one of the wiis best games. aliens and humans lets just say a alien movie but you are the main star. if you like guns and aliens you will really like it, who really cares if it was made 10 years ago they made alot of improvements since then. it WILL be a big hit.
Read About It
Just read some articles on this game and as I can see by the videos and the interviews and opinions this game has potential. Dont expect game of the year of course but if you play with friends or alone this is a great run and gun game. Just mindless shooting to aliens and you can play with up to 4 ppl on the console. So i say give it a shot people stop being so negative
Looks Good so Far
I've been following this game since it was announced and it looks like its going to be any interesting shooter on the Wii. It reminds me alot of Champions: Return to Arms only its a shooter game. Graphics need improvement but all screenshots avaliable on currently are of the pre-alpha version. Hopefully graphics will be improved and then it'll be an even better game.
No games ever came out for the NES 10 years ago
This is a blatant contradiction of facts, Gamestop needs to stop posting fake customer reviews, if someone is already looking at buying the game, do you really think fake ass, poorly written, horrible grammar inclusive, badly disguised marketing ploys are going to be the deciding factor in a customers purchase? Get a clue, pigs.
