Story & Themes
In Aliens: Armageddon, players control a Colonial Marine after Earth has been invaded by an Alien plague. The Aliens have completely overrun the planet, and the Marines are trying desperately to eradicate their forces. However, by the game's fourth and final chapter, hope of ever reclaiming Earth is lost, so the Marines must fight their way through swarms of enemies to arrive at the ship that can take them to deep space.
The game's controls are very simple and different difficulty settings are available. However, some players may find it challenging to reach the game's end without spending a bit of money.
Violence Players use a variety of guns, explosives, and flamethrowers to blast apart enemy Aliens. When Aliens are killed, they erupt into clouds of green blood and dismembered body parts. Much of the action is up-close and near to the camera, making for an intense experience.
Scary Imagery Alien enemies are fairly scary and can appear suddenly and uncomfortably close to the camera.
Consumerism Aliens: Armageddon is part of a massive franchise with tie-ins to other franchises. Additionally, because it is an arcade game, players will need to pay to play and must keep feeding the machine money if they die multiple times and wish to continue the game.
