This game was actually decent., i was expecting it to be terrible due to the reviews but was actually glad that i had rented it. Their are are some problums like the graphics are like a ps2 and the multiplayer is pretty awful but all-in-all its an okay game.
It's all about hearing the beloved pulse rifle! I swear I want that as my ring tone. I also love the motion detector.
Unfortunately, the rest of the game falls quite a bit short. The story line is contrived and the game play becomes terribly repetitive. If this wasn't an official ALIENS game I wouldn't have finished it.
i dont understand why everyone is being so critical of this game it is actually a pretty average game, nothing over the top awesome and nothing super lame. hits fans of the aliens series pretty stong with character and story name drops from the movie as well as incorperating weapons and verhicals (power loader) into the mix. graphics are subpar but nothing thats major disconserning and the story of the campaign feels like another movie with strong tie ins, suspense, and alot of action. on the other side of the coin we have multi-player which is pretty awesome. think LEFT 4 DEAD but with aliens and you got it. mariens fight as a team with scaners and heavy weapons scatered around the map, and xenos fight more one on many with different classes that let you pounce, hack away, or spit acid on your opponents while all the while being able to see the mariens heat signitures through walls. so all in all i prob would not buy this game unless it was on sale OR you and a group of your buddies bought it together to play mult-player online or campaigne as a group but if not as a solo artist it is still a game worth rentng or borrowing
