Not sure how many of you are aware of this, but Alien Swarm has been re-released on Steam under the title Alien Swarm: Reactive Drop. The original game was released 7 years ago and was/is a fantastic top-down co-operative tactical shooter with lots of variety, tense moments and atmosphere. This new version just adds some extra bits e.g. allowing 8 players to co-operate on each map and Steam Workshop. If you don't know the game, imagine Starship Troopers or Warhammer 40k's Space Hulk from a top down perspective where players pick different classes, weapons and equipment then work together to complete missions and survive the alien swarm. There are lots of weapons and items to use and unlock, 8 characters to choose from (medics, tech marines, heavies etc.) and of course objectives to complete as you progress through the map. Missions and campaigns are usually tense and exhilirating, as the game gets quite hard on higher difficulty levels and requires the players to work together as a team. Leave no one behind, especially the technicians as no one else can hack doors and terminals! The game is completely free (courtesy of Valve) and may be downloaded here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/630/ Gameplay video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMYdKqXFbiE Steam Workshop means there are more and more maps and mods added each day (e.g. the one allowing you to play as Chaos or Space Marines). Enjoy!
