Alien Trilogy (MS-DOS)
I wonder how this even got into the game without anyone noticing that some of the words are unreadable and then finding a way to fix it.
WAIT... how does this even relate to the first three Alien movies? This corridor looks like it's from Aliens, but I don't remember them ever ordering Ripley to go in first with a pistol and clear a path for the marines.
Oh shit it's coming for me RUN AWAY!!!
Ok it's dead. It can't harm me any more. Unless I step on its corpse, then its acidic blood will burn through my feet.
Come in HQ, you're breaking up, please repeat your last message. Oh whatever, I'll figure it out myself.
Power up all the lights, now there's a mission objective I can definitely get behind.
Low res aliens and facehuggers in the dark can make me jump, but I can't take these guys seriously at all. Suddenly the magic is broken and the game just doesn't feel like Aliens any more.
I still think it's a pretty decent game overall so far though. It's a definite step above games like Last Rites and In Pursuit of Greed at least.
