I'm not going to go into all the other issues, another reviewer here did that well already, but I was shocked when just starting into the game it froze then crashed my system! Then after restarting the game my character got trapped easily behind a closing hatch (when you leave the Sulaco to return to the airlock tube try not going thru the hatch and let it close) and the game had no way of me being able to get out of the trapped room nor did it recognize that this had happend! If you are a hard core Aliens (2) fan then rent or buy it when its cheap (which won't be too long) as the only pluses are it is true to the movies locations and has the voices of Lance Heinricksen and Michael Biehn. Otherwise take the nearest escape pod and avoid this game (if only it had working escape pods).
Usually I put a good and bad section in my review....not this time as there is nothing good about this game.
This would have been a joke for a PS3 launch title, but is unforgivable this late in the console cycle. The graphics are PS2 quality at best. The sound is awful. The dialogue is awful. The controls are 2nd rate. The AI is pathetic. There is nothing good about this game and should be criminal to sell it.
