I decided to give this a go again and can't believe how much fun I'm having , absolutely brilliant game if you have never played this it's a must , would love them to bring it out in HD.

I loved this game. Finished it when I bought it on release. I might replay it.

Funnily enough, last week I read a review of the game and there was negative comments regarding the controls. The complaints were aimed at the use of sticks to move and look ( I am pretty sure this was the first game or one of, to use this control scheme). It made me laugh out loud because they said that they were suprised the game got through quality control because it was so hard to control and will likely never be used by another game. Lol

I've just brought a copy now actually. I've never played Resurrection. Played the hell out of and was scared shitless by Trilogy back in the game but we never brought this when I was a kid. Looking forward to giving it a go.  ;D

I loved how all the menus had the same layout that Trilogy did.

This and trilogy remain in my collection to this day along side AvP and AVP 2 for PC.

I remember fighting the controls at the time, but I still liked the game a lot. I've been meaning to replay it with the benefit of hindsight and 10+ years' experience at using dual-stick FPS controls and see how much I enjoy it, haha.

Got bugger all ammo from last save game.  I don't think there's any game that makes you as relieved to reach a save point.

Atmosphere-wise it is the best Alien game ever made. A real proper survival-horror. It was genuinely frightening in its day. The controls are horrible, but it was worth it once mastered.

Another thing I find impressive about this game is from a technical standpoint. It was one of the last PSone games I believe and short of textures not being up to scratch it really played like a next gen title for the time.

You have the new control system which has been adopted universallY for FPS.

The Aliens jump around all over the place. All 3D modelled.

I honestly can't think of a FPS on the PSone that is as advanced as this.

Saying that, I never played many FPS' on that console so I could be way off mark.
