But what is Alien Arena 2007
An independently-produced FPS, one in a series of standalone games based on a classic Sci-Fi theme with a modern, updated visual
experience....which is all well and good, but what does it actually mean?
First released to the public in October 2004, nearly every aspect of the game has been revamped and redone, 2007 even sees an almost total overhaul on code and content from the 2006 title - the improvements almost making it an entirely new game. You can expect 37 levels, five playmodes, built in bots, six mutators, eight weapons (with alt-fire modes), ten player characters and an almost endless supply of replayability.
The game is described as being perfect for gamers who enjoy rich, colourful arcade-like atmospheres, like a bit of fast-paced deathmatch and aren't put off by some retro sci-fi. It combines aspects of Quake III
and the classic Unreal Tournament
, bundles them together with some original ideas and a bunch of old-fashioned aliens, and ends up with a unique title.
