Ellen Ripley has been through a lot in the course of her encounters with the mysterious xenomorphs she and her Nostromo crew discovered nearly three centuries ago. She's battled soldiers, queens, mutant varieties, and even experienced her own death, but now she's been brought back by a team of scientists hungry to gain access to the alien queen hosted in her body at the time of her demise. Yet something during the cloning process changed her. She now has aspects of the aliens she has so long despised. Acid blood, super strength, adept senses ... is she still even human? But is no time for philosophical debate, because the aliens bred by the queen extracted from her are loose on the research ship USM Auriga, and it's up to Ripley to protect the crew and the whole of Earth from being infested. Once again, it's up to Ellen Ripley to save the day.
Take on the role of Ripley and three other characters in Alien Resurrection for the PlayStation, a first-person shooter from Fox Interactive. Based on the 1997 film, you'll take on a whole host of alien opponents as you make your way through the dim corridors of the military research vessel on which you've been involuntarily trapped.
The game will take you throughout the Auriga, both above and below water, and you'll have to battle aliens in their various forms of gestation as well as military personnel who've been ordered to silence you permanently. Many familiar items will be available to you during the course of the game, including the familiar motion tracker that sounds a telltale beep when danger is at hand. Along the way you'll pick up 11 weapons of various strength, from pistols and shotguns all the way to rocket launchers, lasers and electric guns. The plot will reveal some sudden allies for Ripley, and at certain points of the game, you'll even control them in their own levels. ~ Jon Thompson, All Game Guide
