Frothy stinking mess.

There's not enough room to list all the problems, so I'll highlight the reason I bailed on it and sent it back. You start with a pulse rifle and shotgun. About 20 minutes in, you find Hick's shotgun. I thought it was just a bonus pickup. I didn't know I was replacing my pulse rifle with the 'special' shotgun. After going through a door that you can't go back through, I realized I was now carrying 2 shotguns - not the ideal loadout. When Mission 2 came around, I was still stuck with 2 shotguns and 30 minutes later NO other weapons were to be found anywhere. Just plenty of ammo for the pulse rifle I no longer had. Checkpoints are so spread out and you die so easily that I couldn't get any further with my two stupid shotguns in a long range firefight. No armories - no options to pick up other loadouts. Just my two stupid shotguns. Ooo! I leveled up and can upgrade that flamethrower I don't have.....

What happened to the once great Alien. When I played this I was mortified by how lackluster the gameplay. This isn't an Alien game this is simply another Call of Duty if it were in space. I was a fanboy of the entire Alien franchise since the first movie. The A.I. is insipid. The final boss doesn't make sence with the rest of the story. Don't play this game alone. I'm sorry don't even rent this game.

Game was too short - very repetative levels - weapon selections was okay - upgrades were okay - story line was a little hokey - glad I didn't buy the game.
