What makes Aliens: Fireteam Elite such a blast to play is how much it makes you feel like a Colonial Marine fighting through a hive of Xenomorphs. Everything from the radar blip sounds, the smart gun and pulse rifle bursts, the hissing of approaching Xenomorphs, to all the different M3 Pattern Personnel Armor customization options feels authentically Aliens in a way that shows a respect and fondness to the source material that this medium hasn't seen before.

Taking place in the fictional Midwest town of Raccoon City, players choose either the role of Leon S. Kennedy or Claire Redfield. Upon entering the now decrepit city, players are welcomed with open arms by the recently infected population.

This begins the jumping-off point as you scour your way through the labyrinthine R.P.D., local sewer system, and finally, into the secret underground laboratory where the city-wide outbreak originated from.

Valheim is an interesting, survival-crafting experience that painstakingly pushes survival above fun. If you're into the genre, then I suggest checking it out, by the two-hour mark, you won't begin to scratch the surface of the game, but you'll have a feel for whether the game is for you or not.
