Alien Breed Review [Capsule Computers]

Alien Breed has been around for over two decades. It was originally released for the Amiga in 1991, just a year after developer Team 17 opened its doors. Though it has gone through several iterations, Team 17 have decided that it was time to grace the public with a re-release of their original blockbuster, as well as bundling a few other goodies along with it for the ride. How does it hold up? Should it be hoisted to its own home world or left on the space station with an active nuke? Let’s find out. (Alien Breed, PS Vita, PS3) 7.5/10

I still have AB 1 and 2 on my Amiga 32 and this is one of the best games the Amiga had. If your a old school top down shooting fan and not played this game its defo worth picking up.

I want to see more remakes like the Chaos Engine, Cannon Fodder, Fire & Ice or Magic Pockets.

While I understand your reasons for why you liked the game, a lot of those reasons were why I didn't like the game. The original mechanics don't hold up today and gamers will find the game boring if they play with the updated control scheme. The best way to play this game is with the original control scheme of only being able to shoot what's infront of you. This is mainly because of the way the AI moves.
