Here's what all the critics are saying about Aliens: Fireteam Elite


By Ray Ampoloquio August 24, 2021

Creative Assembly's 2014 survival horror take on the Aliens franchise, Alien: Isolation, was an outlier.

Now, Cold Iron is attempting to replicate that game's success by adding a more action-oriented co-op shooter twist to the franchise in Aliens: Fireteam Elite.

After seeing the review scores for Fireteam Elite, it appears that Cold Iron has a solid game in its hands.

Sure, not everyone seems to be loving Fireteam Elite. 

At the same time, there seems to be enough good in Fireteam Elite to make it one of the best co-op shooters around, with a couple of improvements.

Aliens: Fireteam Elite came out on the PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X on August 24,

The consensus among audiences seems to be that Fireteam Elite is a good game with a few rough edges.

One of these said issues is the glaring lack of multiplayer support. 

If it's any consolation, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 owners can play with each other.

As is the case for Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X owners.

The only problem is that people on rival console platforms, as well as the PC, can't play together, which is a weird omission.

With that said, Fireteam Elite isn't just a co-op shooter.

Fireteam Elite also has a single-player campaign, which is told through four story-driven sections.

Unfortunately, it appears that the single-player aspect of Fireteam Elite was something that the development team could have spent some more time on.

Ultimately, Fireteam Elite is a solid game. It's not the best Aliens game, but it's worth playing, especially with friends.
