The console version of Alien Hominid has won the "Biggest Surprise of 2004" award from IGN! Check it out here! Booya!
Sweeet. It also came half a point from winning a silver award from Electronig Gaming Monthly (EGM) which stacks it up there as a pretty damn good game. It actually had one of the highest scores in that issue, but it didn't win game of the month because it was stacked up against some other titles... like Halo 2, MGS3, and Paper Mario 2 :/
I have to admit, it's a kickass game. Very Metal Slug-esque, especially the closeup knife move. It has some nice innovations Metal Slug doesn't have though, and I commend you for that unique improvement (amongst many others). It's not as hard of a game as others make it out to sound, it's actually relatively easy if you stay on your toes and watch for the quick shots the FBI agents get off. That damn PDA game is addictive as heck, especially with multi-players >.< I spent a couple hours on end playing that one nonstop.
