Critics Consensus: Aliens: Fireteam Elite offers plenty of wild shootouts, plenty of customization, and a great atmosphere. The game mechanics can be overly repetitive, however, and this is a fairly shallow take on the genre, but Alien fans playing alongside one another will have fun nonetheless.

7/10
Kyle Campbell (IGN)

There’s plenty of wild shootouts with swarms of xenomorphs in Aliens: Fireteam Elite, but some awkward pacing and repetitive level design prevents it from being a classic.

Aliens: Fireteam Elite is a solid third-person co-op shooter that feels like it belongs in the franchise, but its replayability has yet to be determined.

A fun and flexible swarm shooter that’s a little too reliant on being played alongside friends.
