I've written a review of this game here: freshwebsites.miraheze.org/wiki/Blog:Aliens:_Fireteam_LITE


TLDR: Pulse rifle not included

I'm really not a fan of the game from what I've seen.

The visuals are great but I hate the hud elements. I especially dislike the yellow outline on all the aliens and the blue outline on the marines. The big red X that appears after killing every alien is horrendous.

Also the alien blood splats are greenish, almost like predator blood, yet their blood sprays are dirty yellow alien acid. They don't match each other.

I also dislike the constant mic chatter and objective markers 24/7 telling you where to go and what to press F on every object. The game is holding the player's hand for everything but the combat.

The devs didn't animate the characters interacting with the objectives as well. They'll just stand next to a computer monitor waiting for the "F" circle to complete. It comes off as a game developed for mobile platforms.

I think the outlines and x-shaped kill notifications you mentioned are just assists on Casual mode, I don't think I noticed then when I tried Standard mode, and yeah I also noticed the Xenomorph blood puddles are a bit too greenish, thanks I'll add that note to my review.

Oh and you don't eventually end up getting like a grenade launcher or even shotgun attachment for the 'pulse rifle', I'm not sure if you can even get the magazine capacity up to 95 either, they might add a proper one in a later DLC but someone who has already purchased it for $55, should not have to spend more just to get something which should be a given in any Aliens game, it's like playing as a Predator with no wristblades.

By the way have you seen Colonel Shipp: thenewreceptionwiki.miraheze.org/wiki/File:WTF.jpg

Yeah I didn't notice much difference between Casual mode and Standard mode aside from the visual assists, but Cold Iron Studios must be full of knob jockeys or something to have made a self-insert for Miley Cyrus like that, I doubt that future patches and DLCs will improve the gameplay in any meaningful way.

Well they should start by adding a proper pulse rifle, and Kenny was right, it feels more like a game developed for mobile platforms, Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade was like that too.

Hey do either of you guys want to add me on Steam so you can help me do the fourth section of the campaign? The first mission has a Praetorian boss.


Edit: Finally found someone to help me beat the last three missions of that shitty campaign.
