The Syndrome strikes again! Sega's intense shooter franchise returns with an all new strain of excitement in this action-RPG take on the classic SEGA franchise. The game puts players in control of the strong and enigmatic heroine – Earth Command Trooper Aileen Harding – as she battles through a wide variety of environments including onboard infested spaceships and bizarre alien planets. Players can choose from a wide selection of character specialties and skills to hone their character, then earn armor and new melee and ranged weaponry as well as new skills as she hunts down the alien menace. Alien Syndrome offers 20 different weapons, each offering different advantages and disadvantages, dependent upon how it is used and which speciality the player has chosen to adopt. With the sheer variety of weapons and abilities available to players, any number of combat strategies can be used to defeat hordes of more than 100 different alien enemies.
