From Space works for one player but really comes to life for teams of four. You squad up online and work through different missions to shoot, blow up and generally obliterate the alien menace. There is a range of weapons (Rocket Launchers, Mini-guns and Flamethrowers) to help your team, but you still need a strategy (and some tactical items like grenades and mines) to stay on top of the ever-advancing alien hordes.
As you progress you can upgrade and choose perks to offer new ways of dealing with the more powerful aliens. The focus stays on the team, as you can share and swap perks with each other to create the best combination of your abilities.
The result is an exuberant back-slapping alien exploding blockbuster of a game. Like the previous similar game from the developer (It came from space and ate our brains), it's not hugely deep or nuanced, but it is a lot of fun.
