Here's a blast from the past.Tonight I'm playing Alien Trilogy(ps1)Released in 1996(I was only 6 years old lol)the game was basically a Doom mod(i kinda like it better than Doom because of the license)True to it's name it spanned the first three movies,with locations including Hadley's Hope,the Prison(on LV-426 lol),and the derelict.This was probably the first truely great Alien game in my opinion.It had a sizable roster of Enemies without straying from the films.A well rounded arsenal of weapons,complete with appropriate sound effects to boot.I posting to see how many of you have played this gem.I've been playing it for years and still love it!I guess I'm kinda old after all lol.(Sorry if this makes no sense,I've been drunking lol)

A reviewer said that by the time you are done with Trilogy, you will wish you had been fighting predators with plastic scissors and a stick and glue.

Loved Alien trilogy and Alien Resurrection on the PS1! I also got an Atari Jaguar for Xmas back in '94 w/AVP (the first 3d incarnation of that series, very much like doom). One of the coolest games to date if you can find it. Fantastic! Also, if you're into DOOM, from way back, a guy named Justin Fischer did a complete overhaul of the DOOM engine, ALIENS style. Redid the weapons and creatures, straight from the movie. He also redid the levels (the very first stage had no enemies which was unheard of for DOOM and really added to the suspense). Other changes included XENOS dropping from the ceiling and having to seal doors to keep the nasties from breaching the med labs... and proximity indicators for Deathmatch (all of which added different tactics for players... and redesigned the levels specifically for a good kill-your-buddies fest). When that hit, it outdid the actual DOOM game in popularity if I remember, at the time, and companies wanted to hire the guy for level design. Seriously worth your while if you're a retro gamer and an ALIENS fan. Google ALIENS TC - (total conversion for Ultimate Doom) - check it... you'll be glad you did!

dk yeah I love the first two Oddworld games and I have them on my Vita where the pixels are less visible due to the small screen.

New 'n' Tasty was an admirable attempt but turned into more of a mainstream experience imo. With Soulstorm, Lanning wants to return to the darker universe of the very first game.

Back in the day we borrowed a PS1 for a weekend from a friend to see what it was like - Alien Trilogy was one of the games he lent us - got it home Friday evening and it was 4am Saturday before we took our first 'sleep break' - played the entire weekend and by the following weekend we had our own PS1 and Alien Trilogy - I imagine it looks very dated now but back then it was as creepy and atmospheric as they came - especially the motion sensor going off - pulse rate went through the roof!!!

Back in the day, out of all the codes I used when the game got too difficult in the third and final act, the acid boots code is the one that stood out. I remember interpreting the code like it was a name; "Bootson" 

Sorry I'm a swede, our names often end with "son" (Andersson, Eriksson etc.)

Neomorph  New n Tasty- I forgot the name. The analog stick made twitch moves so bad that I quit after 30 minutes. Maybe there is a patch but at the time, there was no option for the "classic" d pad configuration that was so perfect.

Makes perfect sense.The derelict is pretty much flooded with acid

dk yeah the first two PS games had a better control scheme where I could only blame myself for errors.

In New 'n' Tasty, I can't trust the controller the same way. Slightest mistake in the movement of the thumbstick and poor Abe hits the meat grinder/mine etc

ninXeno426 yes that makes sense, I forgot why I used it as it was such a long time ago I played the game.
