Great Genes, But How Is Alien Breed On PS3 And PS Vita?

Alex C.: ''When Alien Breed first landed in 1991, its origins and influences were clear. James Cameron’s 1986 movie was obviously the basis for the game, although the developers, Amiga darlings Team 17, were careful enough to ensure that the top down scrolling blaster had an identity of its own. It did – there was more than enough to make Alien Breed stand out as an original shooter – but for me it was an excuse to pretend I was Hicks, running about on my own personal bug hunt.

Sequels and expansions followed – more maps, more weapons, and the game got better and better each time. There were some truly stand out moments (not least the Alien-esque power-off panics as you rush back to the exit under the threatening glow of the red emergency lights and the deafening siren) but it was a brilliant two player co-op experience regardless of the version.'' (Alien Breed, PS Vita, PS3)

The original Alien Breed on the Amiga was fantastic!
The console releases based on the unreal engine, although slick visually, offer real paint by numbers gaming with some of the most generic puzzles and boss battles available.

I have been seeing this title quite often through the years can anyone tell me if its any good? And if it is which is the definitive version to play? There are ports of this game for almost every platform so anybody want to help me go in the right direction??
