Xenos are apparently aliens and in this game you take charge of some kind of alien exterminator and have to kill lots of them. Why? They’ve invaded a series of space stations, that’s why!

There isn’t really much story to this game other than the above. You and up to two buddies have to make your way through a series of increasingly complex space stations and kill the marauding within, and you’re up against a time limit (self-destruct, don’t you know) it’s pretty generic as far as that goes, but what’s really kind of nice about this game is that though three people can play at the same time they don’t have to be in the same room at the same time. The screen is divided into thirds and each person is free to go wherever he wants.


This game is mildly distracting for a few minutes. It’s kind of fun running around shooting aliens, but it gains quite a bit more fun when you have one or even two more people working together with you to clear out the infestations.

And who says playing video games isn’t a social activity.
