      Sigma Team’s Alien Shooter: Vengeance (also known as Alien Shooter 2) is a top-down style shooter-RPG with great game play and immense replay value. The plot is pretty generic, with you playing as a mercenary called in to deal with the “mystery” of an alien invasion as a secret corporation research facility. There are some interesting possible plot evolutions presented in secret areas and side quest-like objectives throughout the game, but the story doesn’t really go anywhere. Which is okay, since the story exists mainly as an excuse to let you mow through hundreds upon hundreds of aliens with a variety of modern and futuristic weapons.

      Speaking of weapons, Alien Shooter: Vengeance has an RPG-style system of allotting points as you gain experience


      by completing missions and killing enemies. Better weapons require more points invested in the appropriate skill to wield, as does other equipment such as armor and stat-boosting implants. Also, you get to choose one of eight “perks” when choosing your character, which offer different game play experiences depending which you choose. You get to choose from both male and female characters when starting a new game, each with unique and entertaining back-stories and pre-set skill allocations. Sadly, you cannot create a character designed to your own specifications, but the choices are varied enough that this is not a serious problem.

      My favorite game play element was the role-playing aspect and evolution of my gun-toting avatar, but there is much good to say ...


      • about the weapon choices as well. There are a lot- of enemies on each level, and it works best if you choose a specific weapon class or two and stick with your choices rather than branch out too much. This way you can wield the best weapons in your chosen classes, as well as leaving the others open for when you play through this fast-paced and addicting game again, trying to find every last secret area for maximum score. You can choose slow but powerful (and accurate) handguns, scatter-shot shotguns to clear short ranges, fast-firing machine guns to lay a stream of bullets across the battlefield, area-effect grenade- and rocket-launchers, and the very expensive but very powerful energy and flamethrower weapons.
        With so many options to deal alien death, Alien Shooter: Vengeance can be played over and over again, with a different rewarding experience each time.

        Alien Shooter: Vengeance is definitely worth buying, especially if you use Valve’s Steam client. You can buy the full game as a download from Sigma team’s website for $19.95, OR you can get the game for $4.99 via Steam, though the Steam version requires you to use the Steam platform when launching the game. Not a problem, in my experience, but Steam does have the potential for some annoying issues. To me, saving $15 is worth the annoyance and some complications from Steam, but for a truly hassle-free experience the $19.95 download from Sigma Team is the best answer.
