Aliens Infestation Classified

You may remember exactly two years ago today, a mystery video appeared on Youtube showing gameplay footage from a Nintendo DS game called Aliens Colonial Marines. It was being developed by Way Forward in association with Gearbox. It had presumably been cancelled by Sega however as of yesterday, Sega had the game classified in Australia suggesting it will be released afterall. The game is called Aliens Infestation and was rated M for mature.

    I Thought M classed games weren't allowed in Australia?

    No, it's... complicated. We don't have an R18+ rating for games at the moment, which means that anything which can't be squashed down into the MA15+ bracket is automatically refused classification. While this means that some games are banned, in the majority of cases it actually results in games that have an adult rating overseas being available to 15 year olds, as the most recent AVP has been.

    It's a joke.

    Man...That Sucks!

    oh man the Megadrive version is insane. time limit, Pouncing aliens and the levels are ridiculously complex. and the Sound effects, damn.

    the SNES is more slow and you have more varied objectives and enemies, but it becomes tedious when the spawn points start to show and how it takes you a while to get from place to place because Ripley can't run for shit.

    hopefully this game will be everything these two and Contra can offer and more.

    I would love it if this was a 3DS title or if it was just released at all. I'm not sure how the rating classification works but don't games have to be near the finish line to be classified?
