The game is extremely hard to play on higher difficulties, which is a fun challenge and even more fun with friends in coop. The graphics are soso about like the first ps3 games, and the story is decent not bad, not good, but is fun nontheless. Multiplayer is really fun with the aliens vs marines modes. Aliens are a bit underpowered but this makes one play cooperatively to take down one marine at a time. There was a update on day two that fixed most of the glitches in the game. All in all the game is fun but dated and either should have come out earlier or with a lower price tag around 30-40$. Dont let all the 1-2 star reveiws deturn you from this game, it is really enjoyable. Just rent or wait till price decreases to around 30$.
Also don't compare this to cod, this game actualy has some story to it unlike newer cods. Being a FPS dos not make it a call of duty game.
If your into creatures jumping out and scaring you most of the time dark places and the Alien saga then this game is for You.
The controls sort of feel like call of duty but when your on the multiplayer you also play as the alien faction witch there view is in the third person it is difficult ate times but if your a fast learner you'll get yous to it.
The story is like any other alien story but spoilers there are nun hear sorry.
the new alien's in this game are crazy thou my favorite is the Crusher
But like i said before if your into alien's dark places and thing jumping out ate you then this game is for you>
