REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

Alien Syndrome Screenshots



Alien Syndrome is a fast-paced action-RPG with shooter elements. Set in a stunning sci-fi universe, the game features two fast-paced action-RPG modes – the dramatic and engaging single-player campaign, plus an infinitely replayable co-op multiplayer mode for up to four players. Derived from the classic SEGA arcade game, Alien Syndrome’s new sci-fi action-RPG shooter gameplay makes it easy to pick up and play, while its depth and wealth of features and missions keeps it challenging for all gamers.

In Alien Syndrome, players take control of the game’s strong and enigmatic heroine, Earth Command Trooper Aileen Harding, and battle a variety of fearsome aliens and colossal bosses. Gamers will choose from a wide selection of character specialties and skills upgrades as they progress through an engrossing campaign and fight through infested spaceships and bizarre alien planets.

Alien Syndrome on the Wii utilizes the Wii Remote’s motion-sensitive technology to allow players a precision targeting system when shooting through hordes of enemies, circle-strafing around epic boss monsters, or running and gunning through hallways packed with alien adversaries. Gamers will also be able to access new Wii-specific game modes and features which expand on the core gameplay. These include using the Wii Remote to craft new items, enhance existing items and character abilities, and hack into computer systems.
