    I've only played this game for a hour or so, but it already sucked me in. Game runs on Source engine, so graphic level is pretty high, physics is natural, sound is not annoying, but the best thing abo...

    Alien Swarm offers a ton of good, cooperative fun, and it's impossible to argue with its price tag - or lack thereof.

    Based on the Unreal Tournament 2004 mod of the same name and developed by the same group of guys, who were lucky enough to get picked up by Valve, Alien Swarm is a brand new Steam game in which you an...

    A strong multiplayer experience that is fun for a little while. Also it's free.

    Rated on July 21, 2010 by Vaasman

    It's pretty hard to argue with getting a free game. I mean, it's free. Only aliens dislike free stuff. Also Republicans :P. Enter Alien Swarm, a free game by a bunch of modders hired by Valve to updat...

    Why does this game deserve such a high score? Well its free, polished, and most importantly a boat load of fun.

    Rated on July 21, 2010 by payne6705

    I know giving a game like this a 10 seems a bit off. I mean amazing titles like GTA IV and MGS 4 have 10's why should this game? Well one of the main reasons is it 's free another is the game is so mu...
