Kombo: Turning The Tables On The Alien Invasion

Kombo writes: "Games like Resistance 2, Killzone 2 and Gears of War 2 have a lot of things in common. They all have great graphics. They all have great online multiplayer. They all have great presentation. They all take place in alternate timelines or the future. They all tell the story of man's epic struggle against overwhelming alien invaders that will inevitably result in a major clash of good versus evil. But games like Killzone 2, Resistance 2 and Gears 2 have something else in common as well. It's something held in common by many games with alien invasion storylines: they don't ever let you play as the aliens!"

The story is too old to be commented.

You can play as the "aliens" in multiplayer, if that counts for anything. In single-player... well... it's not like they let you play as a goomba in any Mario game!


Oh, and aren't the humans invading the aliens in Killzone 2?

'Destroy all Humans!' anyone?

That would be great if a spinoff FPS of the franchise was made, I'd play that.

Quite an interesting idea, I'd personally love to play as the aliens in a game, maybe we could have a game on the same wavelength of 'Giants' where you play the campaign from different perspectives to get the full story, more indepth than the Arbiter in Halo2 in two different sections or something.
That would be excellent, I really like that idea.

Halo 2 let you play as the aliens.

I suppose the ISA are 'aliens'. They originated on Earth and now live on Vekta.
