Critical Hit!: "It’s no secret to Metroid fans that the series was inspired in part by the Alien movies. A Metroid-style Alien game not only seems like such a perfect combination, it’s so obvious that it makes me wonder why it’s taken this long for it to happen.
Unfortunately, Aliens: Infestation doesn’t quite measure up to the same level of quality as Shadow Complex or the Metroid series. In fact, it initially fell so far below my expectations that I initially hated the game. But after letting some time pass and giving it another try, I was able to look past the game’s many flaws just enough to notice some of its charm."
