Plot and gameplay
The game takes us to a science-fiction setting, in which mercenaries equipped with heavy armor face off against hordes of aliens. In Alienation, we can choose the character class that fits us, and then develop its skills in a way we want. Weapons are customizable in similar way. There is a huge number of guns, which are generally divided into conventional, hybrid, and alien.
Locked and loaded, we are ready to face the hordes of incoming enemies. Aside from ordinary cannon fodder, players will have to deal with special units and bosses, with each of the latter requiring different tactic. To diversify the gameplay, the creators have hidden numerous collectibles throughout the game world, which will reveal more information about alien invasion.
Aside from single player mode, Alienation for PS4 offers a cooperative multiplayer mode for up to four players, where each player is allowed to a fill different role in the team. The game also features the option to view player’s statistics and compare them with those of other players.
Alienations looks astounding; the locations are filled with details, and the special effects (like explosions and spectacular kills) are a feast for eyes. Additionally, some of the objects in the environment are destructible.
