There is a certain player in mind with this style of game, and I’m well aware it’s not for everyone. If an arcade platform shooter is something you miss or just downright love, this is something you should grab now, because you’ll get your money’s worth out of it.

Even after playing for several hours, I continued to unlock new level modes, new enemies, new weapons, new perks, and more! I definitely loved playing the game for this Super Mutant Alien Assault review, and I’ll continue to play every day until I can get all trophies for it!

Super Mutant Alien Assault may not have an excellent title, but it makes up for this with it’s fantastic and furiously frantic gameplay. I can’t wait to go back and experiment with the weapon library, which I hope gets expanded in the future. At the end of the day, this alien killing masterpiece is not a lesson in anger, just good passionate fun.

Super Mutant Alien Assault is a fast paced and action packed joy ride. It’s always rewarding the player and poses new options to create interesting loadouts while maintaining a fair balance of skill after each level. It does suffer from a repetitious level design but the fun is learning how to use all your weapons and powers in unison.

Super Mutant Alien Assault is a game that is fun to play, looks and sounds good (if you’re into dubstep) and is constantly growing and changing as it is played, but just a bit rough on players very early on. A pretty good package for $9.99 on Steam, PS4, and Xbox One.

Super Mutant Alien Assault is fun and challenging so if you’re in the mood to blast aliens with lots of different weapons and abilities check this one out. The game is rather inexpensive and it can be fun with a friend. I recommend it.

Super Mutant Alien Assault isn't the greatest shooter in recent memory, but that doesn't take away the fact that it's just really fun to play. And there's plenty of depth tucked away for you to discover the more you play.

Not much time is required to get through the levels since each level only takes a few minutes to complete and there are not many. The replayability comes from the difficulty spike with each new world, and the fact that there are plenty of items and abilities that can be unlocked and adjusted for each new run through. Along with this the co-op aspect makes it a very enjoyable game to spend an hour or two playing with friends.

Pitting you against wave after wave of alien attackers, Super Mutant Alien Assault's randomised levels will put your action platforming skills to the test. It can be a bit short if you're just going to play the campaign, though endless mode and co-op can offer a bit of a distraction beyond that. It might not have too much longevity, but Super Mutant Alien Assault is a fun little game to challenge yourself with.

Super Mutant Alien Assault has a long name and a lot of heart. The challenging gameplay mixed with sharp looking graphics and fairly good sound, all work to create an entertaining but short-lasting game. In the end it is an enjoyable little distraction when you just want to jump into a game and have only a small amount of time to do so.

Super Mutant Alien Assualt is a classic "pick-up and play", a fun platform game with rougle-like elements. It's cool and engaging with lots of weapons and upbeat dubstep tracks, though it falls short when it comes to level design and visuals. The game has two different modes and a Co-Op option to play with your friends. Super Mutant Alien Assualt is a game that worths your ime and money.

Overall, I enjoyed Super Mutant Alien Assault. Although it’s short and unspectacular, it’s still a fun arcade platform shooter that is worth a visit.

Super Mutant Alien Assault might be the Citizen Kane of Super Crate Box clones, but in the larger scope of video games it's more of a summer popcorn flick—diverting, good-looking, but ultimately lacking the depth to become a classic.

If you are looking for a simple and fun shooter to keep you entertained for a couple of hours then you might find some fun here. Apart from that, there's nothing here to make the game stand out that much, so don't feel too bad if you give it a miss.

It’s hard to imagine where any but the most die hard of genre fans could get anything out of this game. It’s clean and works, but it’s a game that is difficult to see people getting long-term value out of it.

Give this one a miss unless you’re a huge fan of getting really angry at video games.
