Game Review - Men In Black Alien Crisis

About the Game 
Grab your black sunglasses and suit up for extraterrestrial warfare because Men In Black: Alien Crisis™, from Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard Inc., (Nasdaq: ATVI), hits retail shelves today. Gamers can finally fulfill their dreams of becoming the ultimate MIB agent and saving the world from a hostile alien takeover, just like renowned agents J and K in Men In Black™ 3, in theaters this Friday, May 25, 2012. The Men in Black: Alien Crisis video game is available nationwide for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and the Wii™ system from Nintendo, and is rated “T” (Teen) by the ESRB.

In Men In Black: Alien Crisis, gamers take on the role of MIB agent Peter Delacoeur, rising to fight against an alien ploy to take over Earth. In this third-person arcade shooter, the good guys in black will blast through intense alien shootouts, dodging enemy fire while trying to drive the scum of the universe back into outer space with upgradable weapons like MIB’s famous Noisy Cricket, Plasma Handgun, and more. And with elite guards watching players’ every step, they must also secretly interrogate suspects in order to uncover evil intergalactic conspiracies. Men In Black: Alien Crisis not only gives gamers the classic MIB agent look and gear, but also puts them behind the wheel of the tricked out MIB car, with epic chases flying around the city in pursuit of aliens on the run.

With two-player split screen multiplayer and four-player “hot-seat” mode, and the compatible Top Shot Elite, PlayStation®Move sharp shooter, and Wii Zapper™ peripherals, family and friends will have the ultimate MIB agent experience, blasting their way through fun challenges and competitions to see who the best really is.

Men In Black: Alien Crisis is available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation®3 system for a suggested retail price of $59.99, and on Wii for $49.99. Specially marked packages contain an eMovie Cash code redeemable for $10.00 off a Men In Black 3 movie ticket at participating theatres starting May 25, 2012. For more information, please visit

My Take on the Game
I have not played a lot of rail shooter games in the past, but the ones that I have have been fun and have kept me on the edge of my seat. This game, another rail shooter game provides some fun situations that will engage you and encourage you to kick some alien rump. The graphics were ok, but they could have been stronger, especially in this day and age. That being said, I found the game to provide moderate gameplay and my wife and I enjoyed playing the multi-player split screen mode - you just have to stay on top of where you are while you are playing in this mode. Overall, this was a pretty good game that was fun to play and anyone that enjoys the movie will definitely enjoy the game as well, just don't expect to play as one of the two main men in black gents that you always see in the movie.
