  • Excellent:
  • Good:
  • Average:
  • Bad:


  • It’s pretty simple and fun. It’s great if you have friends on Steam to play with though you could practice on your own in single player. The Software Development Kit (SDK) is available to all Steam users.
  • Fast Paced and intense combat with a nice leveling system.


  • Occasional graphics slowdown, sometimes controls can make things difficult, far too linear.
  • Way to short of a campaign and little replay value.

International Review By GamerLobby on 79

Das größte positive Argument für Alien Swarm ist und bleibt, dass das Spiel kostenlos erhältlich ist. Dennoch ist das Spiel vor allem mit drei Freunden sehr spaßig und unterhält für ein drei bis vier Stunden. Hinzu...

Hvad er prisen hvis du lægger onde rumvæsener sammen med 4 spillers co-op, store automatvåben og muligheden for at designe egne baner? Et stort rundt nul, hvis du spørger Valve. Deres nyeste spil ’Alien Swarm’ er i hvert...
