This game is basically the exact same as Alien Breed: Impact. If you have played the first one then everything in this one will be very similar. If not, it is a top down style shooter. Once again it has co-op, which is the best part of the game. You control your character with the left analogue stick and aim with the right. The game-play consists of shooting aliens and fulfilling mission objectives.

STEP 1: Recruit play-through.
This step is for getting a majority of the single player trophies and all of the hidden ones. Make sure to take your time to explore everywhere picking up as many items and money as possible while finding all the logs and 'secret' collectibles as well as killing as many aliens as possible. Before you start a new game, go to the Help and Options menu then to Settings and turn the waypoint display off.
It could be possible to get all the single player trophies in one play-through. If you were to go down this route you would have to make heavy use of the pause menu by pressing the 'Start' button on your controller as well as following this guide closely. I would make multiple saves and do the miscellaneous trophies later so you don't waste time. The game wouldn't be as enjoyable doing it this way but if you want to rush it, it's your choice.
STEP 2: Elite play-through.
If you followed my advice and did a Recruit play-through first then all you need to concentrate on is finishing the game as fast as you can. You will unlock both of the Elite difficulty trophies if you complete the game in under 4 hours.
STEP 3: Co-Op.
Now it is time to go for the hardest trophies in the game. You can either do these in local co-op with a real life friend or over the PSN. You should be able to unlock all of them in 3 successful runs of the level 'Cargo'. Please refer to the trophy descriptions for more information.
STEP 4: Survivor and Clean-up.
In this step you will be going for the last single player trophy in 'Survivor' mode as well as getting any trophies you may have missed in Step 1.
