Alien Syndrome

Alien Syndrome offers two fast-paced action-RPG modes - the dramatic and engaging single-player campaign, plus a hugely re-playable co-op multiplayer mode where up to four players can delve into the daring quest. Derived from the classic SEGA IP, Alien Syndrome for the Wii plunges players into its easy to pick up and play action-RPG gameplay, while offering depth and a wealth of features and missions to challenge all gamers.

Alien Syndrome puts players in control of the strong and enigmatic heroine - Earth Command Trooper Aileen Harding - as she battles through a wide variety of environments including onboard infested spaceships and bizarre alien planets, taking on a mixture of fearsome aliens and colossal bosses. Players can choose from a wide selection of character specialties and skills to hone their character before embarking upon their sci-fi adventure. As they progress through the engrossing campaign, protected by different types of armour and using a variety of melee and ranged weaponry, players can improve their heroine's statistics and discover powerful new abilities.

"Completely re-designed from the ground up, this new Alien Syndrome offers a refreshing blast-athon on a venerable classic," said Larry Holland, President and Creative Director of Totally Games. "As well, it has allowed us to exercise our science fiction chops to the fullest to create a totally involving futuristic action-RPG game experience."

Alien Syndrome offers 20 different weapons to use, ranging from flamethrowers, quad-barrelled lasers, nanobot swarms that dissolve enemies and incendiary grenades that unleash fire geysers from the ground. Each weapon offers different advantages and disadvantages, dependent upon how it is used and which speciality the player has chosen to adopt. With the sheer variety of weapons and abilities available to players, any number of combat strategies can be used to defeat hordes of more than 100 different alien enemies.

Alien Syndrome on the Wii will utilise the Wii Remote's unique gyroscopic feature by enabling players a full range of motion when slashing through enemies, unloading devastation on bosses, or running and gunning through hallways. Players will also be able to access various new game modes and mechanisms. These extra features include using the Wii controllers to craft new items, to enhance existing items and character abilities and to hack into computer systems.

Hmm, third person shooter eh? Going to be interesting to see how the Wii remote deals with this kind of game. Also the graphics look interesting, but they still look like GameCube graphics none the less.

Seems awesome! I hope it's kind of like destroy all humans. Probably the bad thing about this game is the RPG style of graphics. It just doesn't suit the games theme if you ask me.

Nice. Another game to look forward to.

Nice. I love the graphics and I like that Wii is getting RPG's or at least action/RPG.

Looks like a fusion of Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and Destroy All Humans.

Darn. By Alien syndrome, I thought your character would go through the game, slowly turning into an alien, acquiring awesome alien powers to help find the cure. Oh well. Killing aliens is fun too.

Nice! The graphics remind me of the old Crusader series, and that's a VERY good thing.

Looks similar to Metroid.

I don't think this will be a 3rd person shooter like RE. I think it automatically targets enemies and you just tap B or something. And you won't be able to adjust the height for aiming. Just be looking at the screen shots. That would be a terrible camera angle for a 3rd person shooter.

Yeah, it reminds me of x-men legends.

I hate adjusting aim to shoot something.

This doesn't look too special.

Games that automatically lock onto enemies have no challenge a lot of the time. I like being able to aim so there's at least SOME skill to it.

DarkVic said:

Looks quite fun. I still don't like that it's coming out for the psp.

Does no one remember the original alien syndrome? It was brilliant.

Looks good but I hope they can make it fun with the wiimote, with 3rd person your hand pointing at the screen could actually get in the way of your vision.

I see they made the graphics a little better.

This game looks like the Halo computer demo. In the bottom right screenshot, that plane thingy looks a lot like a banshee from halo.

You're right Wii Wii! This game does look like Halo. Looks awesome just looking at the pictures.

Mr Wii said:

You will move with the analogue stick on the nunchuck and aim with the Wii mote- so technically it will be a 3rd person isometric shooter. Only thing is I hope you can change the camera position ala ultimate alliance- static cameras suck.

Pay attention, alien syndrome is an old sega franchise bought back to life from the good old days. What's with the gundam screens? They're not from this game.

Hey said:

It looks kind of fun.

This game looks class. I saw a trailer of all the weapons, looks brill.

I'm officially excited. The Wii has been up in the air too long in terms of good old fashioned third-party involvement. Sega jumping in is a good sign, and they're showing some innovation to boot.

It's fun to play and great with a mate, one to hack and slash as tank and another to fire at range.
