Aliens: Infestation Reviews

The reviews for Aliens: Infestation are pouring in! The game's out now in Europe, but stay frosty North America – it's coming your way on October 11.

Here's a glimpse of what the critics are saying:

  • Official Nintendo Magazine – 82%
    "A lengthy game that takes the controls of Contra, combines them with the non-linear map exploration of the Metroid and Castlevania games, and chucks Hollywood's most terrifying movie monsters into the mix."
  • CVG / NGamer – 8.0
    "Like a chestburster, Infestation arrives out of nowhere to great surprise. Unlike a chestburster, its dinky alien thrills are very much welcomed."
  • Eurogamer – 8/10
    "There's a demonstrable love for the lore…All this is brought to life with some splendid sprite work; it's the kind of game we kid ourselves all 16-bit games used to look like"
  • TheGamersHub – 4/5
    "This title is a must for any Alien fan."

We'll be giving away some Aliens: Infestation swag on our Twitter and Facebook across the next few days (rules here) so be sure to hit those up! Also, keep an eye here on Gearboxity for more developer diaries from the WayForward team…
