Alien Trilogy (Sony PlayStation 1, 1996)
About this product
|Alien Trilogy is a first-person shooter that combines all three Alien movies into one quest broken into three chapters. Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of its respective movie, but does not follow the order in which they were released.|
You begin on LV426 -- the setting of the sequel, Aliens. The game then flows into the prison colony of Alien 3 and finally comes to a close aboard the derelict spacecraft from the original Alien. Regardless of their order, each quest requires the completion of missions loosely based on those of the movies. They range from going from point A to point B to destroying the Queen's nest. Each one intertwines with the overall storyline, which is told via cinema sequences rendered and inspired by the movies.
Also lifted from the movies are the way the three sections are presented in atmosphere, mood, and level design. Most corridors are dark and ominous and attempt to embrace the player with a feeling of suspense and fear. All of the creatures seen in the movies have been included, such as the face-hugger and regular aliens. If it's not killed fast enough, the former will jump up on your face/screen and begin sucking your life away.
Alien Trilogy is for one player only.

alien trilogy preview
In ALIEN TRILOGY, those chest-bursting, face-sucking, acid-spewing minions of deep space whose only goal is to destroy every human they come into contact with are back. Only one person can save humanity from the alien threat: Lt. Ellen Ripley. Guide her as she blasts through 30 levels of aliens with everything from a 9mm handgun to a powerful flame-thrower. All of the weapons cause damage to the interactive environments that are inspired by the three movies, so you can destroy walls to find shortcuts and reveal secrets, which gives you several alternate ways to complete a level. With plenty of secrets and shortcuts, any fan of first-person shooters or the ALIEN movies will be happy for a long time.

Prepare to be scared spitless!
As a recently retired individual, I needed something to take up my extra time,and got into military style video games. Over the years I have bought several game systems, ( PS1, PS2 and Wii)and played occasionally. But now, I play a variety of first person shooter games. This game is an excellent example of a seat of your pants game, where you need a sharp eye, and a steady hand or you get attacked by all sort of nasty aliens. Very close to the movies, and situations in them. Prepare for a real roller coaster ride of action. The graphics are spectacular, the aliens and face huggers numerous and quick. Its a combination of a maze, and an all pout attack on yourself as you play. This game is one of the top, most played in my collection. It never gets old, and can be played many times, and always seems new when you pick up the controller. I recommend playing it in the dark, for the best gaming experience. Two Thumbs up!Read full review

One of the Best games for the PS1 genre
Old school in session. If you love Doom or Wolfenstein 3D, You'll definetely enjoy Alien Trilogy. I love the game because I'm a big Alien fan since I was a kid and this is a no brainer for me to get this game. The Queen Alien is a pain in the ass and the games gets tough, but what I enjoy the most is the suspense...Play this in the dark!!!
