Fear comes fast and engulfs you completely as you charge down hallways, clutching your assault rifle for dear life. No matter how prepared you think you are for this, the training only goes so far in teaching you how to respond to an alien onslaught.
Noticing movement above your head you alert your squad to “stay frosty”, only to be dropped, seconds later, by a ravenous group of Skulks hell-bent on tearing your company apart. A fierce flurry of bullets, and blood, spray in all directions. You manage to get away, badly wounded and barely breathing, the last remnant of the human squad.
Alas, in the distance you see a grim dark shadow descend upon you. One swipe of its scythe and your body tears apart as though made of paper. Leaving behind only a bloody stain and distant memories of this former last hope for humanity.
Natural Selection 2 (NS2) offers everything I have ever wanted from an FPS and more. NS2 really is what the Alien franchise should’ve been, yet continued to miss, and is now relegated to mediocrity.
