Carl Williams writes, "Well maybe not everyone but there were quite a few gamers that owned the just discontinued Sega Dreamcast and purchased Alien Front Online. This game was probably one of the worst launches in history as far as picking up any momentum from the publisher. The Dreamcast has been discontinued about half a year prior to Alien Front Online being released and offered free to play on on-line servers. Sega didn’t help the matter when they, later, changed those free to play servers to “pay to play” ones which hurt the player base enjoying AFO. Good job Sega."
