This game fecking rules. It's like Alien 3 for the SNES fused with Super Metroid and a dash of Contra. Blows.my.mind.

Alien 3 was a terrible game.

Super Metroid and Contra are good, though.

I can't disagree that Alien 3 sucks, but it had some neat things going for it. I always thought the controls were kinda cool.

Infestation takes what worked in Alien 3 and makes it awesome and fuses it with Metroid. Kicks my ass so hard; one of the best games the DS has to offer. (I beat it.)

Oh, and I played almost the entire thing with the annoying radar pinging in my ear until I realized I could press on it and it'd shut off while still keeping the map open. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU—

I saw this game a while back. I think someone's E3 coverage. It looked like a cool game. One of these days I'll get around to playing it.

So... you go around collecting power ups and stuff like in Metroid?

There are weapon upgrades. A lot of times you need to get a different weapon to pass certain structures. You need to find key cards to access higher level elevators. So yeah, there's a lot of Metroid style gameplay with areas being restricted and needing to revisit them later. It's a lot of fun.

And good gravy, I tried playing Alien 3 last night and it blew so much dick I just couldn't stand it. The folks at WayForward really improved on things a lot. There are similarities to the old game, but everything's an improvement.

Yeah, I tried playing Alien 3 a few months ago and I just couldn't stand it. I don't know why I liked that game so much as a kid. Maybe just because it had to do with the movie.

You guys are both talking about Alien 3 for the Super NES, right? I've heard Alien 3 on the Genesis is a different game, so I've thought about getting it.

Never heard about the Genesis version. But yeah, I was referring to SNES. I've had it since I was a kid and it's god awful.

SNES game for sure. Blows.massive.dick.

I saw a copy of Aliens Infestation BRAND NEW for two bucks at Best Buy awhile back and bought it for my brother. Waiting to hear back wha he thinks of it, since he loves Super Metroid.
