What is it?
Alien Swarm is a free to play game that sees you and up to three allies take on a swarm of enemies in a quest to destroy as many aliens as you can while progressing through an infested planet. There’s a heavy focus on teamwork here and it can be very tricky to play through without teammates, so it’s best to enter into it with at least one or two others. There are a lot of weapons to unlock and a fairly expansive map to work your way through, giving the game a lot of replayability and enjoyment.
Free to play.
Lots of unlockables.
Decent amount of levels to play through.
Can be too difficult on single player.
Alien Swarm is definitely a game worth checking out, especially as it’s free. It may be five years old now, but it is still one of the greatest top down shooters out there from recent times. It would suck a little if you don’t have anyone to play with as that does ramp up the difficulty significantly, but it is still playable. It’s definitely something that everyone should check out at least once, so I’m recommending it to all who read this.
