    I'm reached the spacesuit segment, done that, got back inside and got elevator 6 key. Now, there's no marker to tell me where to go. I've been everywhere except the bottom-right section. I went there but the door is locked.

    I played through the first level last night.

    Spoiler
    The setup is generallt acceptable with UPP seemingly responsible for the Sulaco being crawling with Aliens.  The characters are cliched right out the wazoo - but that's neither here nor there; I think you'll develop favourites over time.  The music is a little bombastic at times, but still suitable for this sort of game.  Couple of decent jump scares (where'd the cat come from?).  Once you get beyond shooting UPP robots, it gets much better - especially when you bag the tracker and use the flares.  Lost three of my four squad members killing the fecking Queen - I think I was doing it wrong.  It looks like you might be able to run past and climb up some platforms to help keep you out of the way.  There was a lot of the ship left unexplored though once I went to the next level which I thought was unusual, but so far I'm really digging the hell out of this game and can't wait to play more.

    Same here. So far only the first Alien Queen gave me a hard time. Probably due to it being the very first boss. In fact I've played large sections of the game with just one marine and no back up (I'm lazy to find more marines).
  4. Salt The Fries
    There are also segments where you enter via ducts upon throwing a grenade, but sometimes they lead to nothing while you see there's something on the other side...Is there something I don't know? Some certain hot spots a'la Metroid you can blast off or jump somewhere, even if it's not seen?
  5. Salt The Fries
    Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu...Can you go back to Sulaco or something? I beat the Alien Queen (no Marines lost!) but I think I could've gone to so many areas it's not even funny. Now I'm somewhere else... :( Please, help...I mean I don't think I could've gone anywhere else at present, unless I collected some other items, which I was unable to by the way, but still....

    The 3rd set was forward IIRC. Go straight past the doors to the next location and it was in there somewhere.

    And I finished the game.

    There's a vent the furthest forward you can go... and ledge i can't reach  :(

    Solved it.. didn't know you could run & jump. Powered ahead through 2 more levels!

    I love how the flamethrower (the original Alien weapon IMO) is actually powerful!

    Lol. They really aren't. Perhaps we should change this to the "As Your Play Through" thread?

    I had to loose a man to that boss. I just kept shooting, moving backwards as I shot. Once he came towards me, dodged or ran away and repeated.
  8. Darkness
    I didn't even see the ladders.

    I'm now onto the bull alien. These bosses are ridiculously hard. I can't seem to dodge any of its attacks. Tips?

    I've got only one man at full health and the smartgun.

    I'm completely stuck again. Queen Boss. I keep hitting her with the powerloader. She rushes off to the left. I try to activate the airlock and some guy says I have to do it manually. What am I supposed to do?

    theres a ladder down next to airlock activator computer, go down and activate anather airlock computer, then go down again etc. you got to activate like 4 computers on each side and then just run away to the right side and up the ladder.

    aight, im at the end of 4th act,  boss battle with infamous rhino alien. its hard as hell. It;s said that 69% of the game is completed so i guess there are 5-6 acts. it seems like story goes from Sulaco to lv-426 then back to sulaco , next to phobos research facility then probably back to sulaco again (there was 1/3 of the ship unexplored yet) .

    Have you been to the derelict?

    Well , i was, but its was for a boss battle and the only part of the ship that you get to see is room with space jockey (the one from oryginal Alien) so nothing new. I wish there was a part where you explore the ship but thats not the case. kind of missed opportunity there, they should have done something like that. its like half of the game takes place on the sulaco, its just cut into parts, sulaco, something else, sulaco, something else and so on.

    Very few games achieve that old arcade/action style successfully nowadays. And Infestation is one of them IMO. I also get the feeling that I'm rushing through the game and have left many areas unexplored so I'm already thinking of re-playing it. I rarely replay any games and that's what makes it amazing for me.

    Does this mean that you already completed the game?  If so, how many hours did it take you?  Is it easy enough to complete the marines with all 19 characters surviving?  In sum, when is avpgalaxy going to put up their review?  LOL.

    I wouldn't exactly call it amazing. The game resembles the old style Aliens arcade game from 20 years ago. That's what I was expecting, though.

    I suppose what bothers me the most is how games companies have the nerve to charge £25-£30 for this which offers a couple of hours of gameplay, when the iphone has games for 99p which offer a lot more.

    Alright, im in 3rd act right now and here;s what i think :

    1. Game looks great, but im a fan of 2d old school action so its right up in my alley.
    2. Marines moves are awesome, lots of actions to do, not your average run and jump character. Controls are great and responsive.
    3. environment is really good, but doors and elevators get really repetitive after a while.
    4. enemies are challenging, i've stumble upon alien workers, alien warriors, droids, soldiers, chestbusters, facehuggers, Alien Queen and "space jockey alien" . Boss fights (i've done 2 so far) are cool, pretty hard at first time .
    5. Searching around Sulaco and Lv-426 is nice, with a lots of vent exploring.
    6. Weapons are really cool (shotgun with upgrades is awesome, hell yea )
    7. Lots of reading guys, many conversations between marines, although mostly about what to do next, where to go etc.

    Fisrt act feels very nice, puts you in great atmosphere, although u should play it in the dark, its way more intense. we know what happens from the trailers and gamplay vides so nothing new if i tell you that you just search for survivors and answers for what happend on sulace, you find  survivor , fight boss, and we bring party to lv-426.  There you fight more and more enemies, search for explosives, destroy few things, and we get a little point and shoot game with apc. then another boss fight. 3rd is where thing start to get intresting storywise. at least for me cause i knew what to expect from first hour of the story. so We are back on the sulaco and... well no need to spoil , but it really doeasnt feel like the first act , althugh we're back where we started ( we got a lot of new areas to check , and story is gettin a lot better) .

    I think for non-aliens fans this is a anotther good/very good 2d game. For myself and most of you guys, definetely something worth playing. It,s more like comic book aliens than movie like (we got to wait for colonial marines ) but i love it.

    Well, I've played through the first mission. The Queen was really hard, I lost three men to it. I'm completely stuck in the second mission. The guy says I have to find some explosives to plant on some big door?

    You need to go back to the building you were before encountering that door. It's there just before the tunnel with the eggs, aliens and explosive barrels.

    The game is a lot of fun. I find it amazing. My only complaint is that you can kinda skip through some of the areas but it doesn't really bother me. The graphics are very nice and detailed. They fit perfectly within the Aliens universe. The derelict was very atmospheric too. I wish the player could spend more time in that level.
