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 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.

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.

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 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.

While I did enjoy my time with Super Mutant Alien Assault, I was a little surprised at how short the game was. Granted, you can and should put in more hours if you want replay value, but not every gamer will care about that. Some are just here for the main mission, and if that’s all that interests you, I can’t highly recommend Super Mutant Alien Assault for the asking price of $9.99. However, if you like hardcore retro games and want to unlock all the achievements and other goodies, then this game may just be for you. If nothing else, I look forward to the next title that Surprise Attack Games manages to cook up. Perhaps they’ll take what they learned from this game and use it to make a truly epic Metroidvania in a similar vein!

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 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.
