Overview:

From the back of the box:

Haunted by memories, you hope there is just some small oversight...some simple communications problem, but you know, deep down, in the back of your mind...THEY'RE BACK!!! Face huggers, chest bursters, dog aliens, adult aliens, ruthless corporate shills, and...3 Queen aliens!!! Over 30 acid encrusted levels, an arsenal of lethal weapons, and you! All the gut-churning 3-D action of the complete Alien Trilogy in one black-death, white-knuckle nightmare.

The story taken from the maunal:

In the not-too-distant future, successful space colonization has become routine. The quaint concept of nations is a remote memory. The one organization to which all humans belong is the Company. All material needs are created and met by the Company. All human activity is subordinated to it. Even the armed forced are privatized, sworn to uphold the interests of the Company. By and large, humanity has survived intact throughout this era of interplanetary conquest. But now a host of parasitic alien seeds threaten the very existence of the human race. The Company wants to keep the deadly spawn alive for use as a secret weapon. Can the vicious Aliens be destroyed? Or will the Queen of Queens succeed in laying another savage generation in the guts of hapless planetary populations? The task of saving humanity comes down to... you.

You're Lt. Ripley. You're a million miles from home. Your fellow marines have just been wiped out in an alien ambush. Now the planet colony on LV426 is threatened by the egg laying aliens--and the Queen. You could use all the help the Company can muster...too bad they're working against you! As Ripley, you'll soon be cursing the day you ever heard of the Company! But for now, you've got to concentrate... watch every movement... listen for every sound... if you can hear above your pounding heart!
Steady, Lt. Ripley... just take one ...
*flatline*
...you're...on your own...

Review:

Alien Trilogy is a 3-D first person shooter with the unique dark atmosphere that is a staple of the Alien movies. You play as Ripley and have to use a vast arsenal of weapons and explosives to fend off aliens, facehuggers, and synthetics. The game is pretty fun, especially if you are a fan of the movies, however it can be a bit dark in places and is quite difficult at times. The cinematics are top notch and really pull you into the game.
