Review: Alien Swarm (

Ben Maddox of Writes:

"For a number of years now, debate has raged on whether or not PC gaming is doomed. And much like the ‘debate’ over Barack Obama’s religious affiliation (he’s Christian), the mere fact that there is a debate at all is a loss for those, like myself, who believe that PC gaming is as robust as ever. The perception that PC gaming is struggling, regardless of the validity of that belief, will scare off gamers from investing in their machines, developers from creating new games, and the media from dedicating resources to covering the platform."

I got it too, haven't played it all that much but it is definitely good. Does feel like it really should be a twin stick shooter though not M&K. I did try it with a pad but it's too hard to map the controls for! Valve should give us a default gamepad map.

I haven't had much time to look into this game, but I might have to buy it now

The videos look epic... Guess it was better than I thought. Might try it on PC.

I'm tired of games with Alien in the title. FFS!

At this price (free), they can call it, "Fishy is a t***" for all I care.

This game looks very interesting. If only my laptop could handle it then I would give it a shot.

It does kind of seem like it isn't meant for a crowd that doesn't keep their PC up to date. The game is more like a "Thanks for still using PC" when everyone else seems to be gaming on a console.

Think its more like,

"Hey you're not a Steam member yet? Here's a free game for you, oh yea, feel free to purchase whatever you like on Steam after your done playing!"
