Operation Carnage is a fun top-down shooter that rivals Team 17's classic Alien Breed in addictiveness and sheer fun. The plot – if you are interested in such superfluous "fodder" – is nothing we haven't seen before. Aliens invade Earth. Aliens conquer Earth. Aliens now breed humans like cattle and feed off their souls (okay, maybe THIS bit is a bit unique). Hero kills aliens. Hero save the day... again.
Gameplay is straightforward, but a lot of fun: mow everything down, pick up powerups, move to the next room. As in Alien Breed, the fun here lies in atmospheric sound effects, good level design, and a lot of interesting weapons to use and monsters to kill. Chances are if you like Alien Breed or classic shareware game CyberDogs, you'll find Operation Carnage a lot of fun. It doesn't advance the genre in any way, but why fix something that isn't broken?
