Tripwire Interactive's Killing Floor is a wave-based shooting game where you shoot zombies with a lot of weapons as a cast of interesting and funny characters. Since it's been connected to Steam Workshop, a way to collect player-created content and modifications (mods,) a group named the Wolf Pack Clan has released the ALIENS Killing Floor collection. Instructions on how and where to download it will be at the bottom of this post.
A lot of work's been put into this mod, and we can tell. The audio is spot on, with the aliens, weapons, and characters' voices and sounds coming straight out of the movies. You can choose between different characters from the Aliens, like Apone, Hudson, Vasquez, and Ripley herself. The mod features its own unique weapons, character models and classes, and enemies. You can choose to be a Medic, Rifleman, or Specialist, each with their own perks, much like their Killing Floor counter-parts. The aliens themselves come in a few flavors, too. Facehuggers, chestbursters, adult drones, leaping runners, and acid-spitting stalkers.
Another notable thing about this mod is its difficulty. Holy crap is it difficult. Playing on beginner is frantic, but easy to keep control of. Especially with a group, it's not tough to handle the waves. Even if you are in a group, though, the Alien Queen is ridiculous. She has no less than two or three times the health of the Patriarch (the normal boss for vanilla Killing Floor,) an instant kill melee attack (or maybe it's a two-shot kill... it happens so fast that no one's sure,) a Siren's scream, and to top it all off, she's huge and way faster than you. Good luck running away. The second I saw her, I began searching the levels for an airlock I could shoot her out of. No such luck. I shutter to think what it would take to kill her on the higher difficulties. The difficulty of the waves themselves spikes significantly when stepping up to Normal, as well.

I seriously recommend WPC's Aliens Killing Floor to anyone who likes:
multiplayer first-person shooters
Call of Duty's Nazi Zombies
Seriously. You don't even need to like Aliens or know what it is to enjoy this game. Plus, it's free!

About Jonii One of us since 12:23 PM on 11.28.2011
I began by watching my dad play games like Diablo, Wolfenstein, Half-Life, and Red Alert. He would let me take a turn or come with him to LAN parties sometimes, and then eventually I was playing those games with my dad and his friends. I can still remember playing RISK or Rayman for PlayStation and how excited I was when my uncle gave me his Nintendo 64, with Mortal Kombat, Ocarina of Time, and Starfox 64. I used to save up all year in anticipation of whatever game I was most excited for, planning and saving months and months ahead.
Well here I am now, 19 years old and writing a semi-successful personal blog about all kinds of stuff at youngmelonworld.blogspot.com. I experimented with a few game related posts, and I found that my personal blog's audience was willing to learn about but not already that much into games, and so I've decided that Dtoid would reach my target audience. Special thanks to my good friend Patrick, who goes by werebear here, for introducing me to this site.
I enjoy looking a little deeper into games and asking a lot of questions. I find critical thinking to really enhance my gaming experience.
