I DONT KNOW WHY PEOPLE HAVE GIVEN THIS GAME SUCH A BAD REVIEW/RATING IN MY MIND ITS NOT HORRIBLE ITS PRETTY DECENT WHEN I PLAYED THIS GAME IT FELT LIKE I WAS WATCH THE FIRST ALIEN MOVIE ALL OVER AGAIN EXCEPT I KNOW WHAT TO DO AND LOOK FOR AM I RIGHT ANYWAY I GUESS YOU HAVE TO PLAY IT TO UNDERSTAND WHERE IM COMING FROM YOU GET TO USE ALL THE WEAPONS IN THE MOVIE EXCEPT DRIVE OR FLY ANYTHING ALL THE CREATURES ARE WHAT THERE SUPPOSED TO BE SOME FAMILIAR FACES YOU GET TO SEE ALSO YOUR TRACKER MAKES THE SAME PINGING NOISE IN THE MOVIES WHICH TELL YOU WHEN ENEMIES ARE NEARBY IF YOU LIKE THE MOVIES AND ALWAYS WONDERED WHAT WOULD I DO IN THOSE SITUATIONS WELL STOP DREAMING AND GO RENT OR BUY THIS GAME AND SEE IF UR NOT IMPRESSED LIKE I WAS EVERYBODYS EXPERINCE WILL DIFFER SOME WILL LOVE IT OTHERS DISLIKE IT.. OORAH TO ASHES MARINES!!!
First off, my son and myself love the Alien series. We have watched Alien all the way through and even AVP Movies. I really loved The Alien vs. Predator game.
This game is awesome.
It is NOT a great shooter by any means, but is meant to give you and experience of what it would feel like to be a colonial marines. My advise is to rent "Aliens" and then play this game immediately after. It has a feel like a Halo game, which is really awesome to say in itself. You fight humans with guns as well as aliens. We are having so much fun playing this game and has a nice feel to it.
I love the idea that you have to have the motion sensor on OR can fire your gun...but not both. That is a great limitation that adds to the game play.
I also love that when the Aliens knock you down, you can knock them away YET as you do, you are stunned and have a hard time aiming.
My son and myself are currently playing this game and Black Ops 2 (which we own) and will probably be buying this game next.
Its a must rent for you to see if you want to buy.
I give this game an eight, just because it is not a 9 like Black Ops 2, which is not perfect like Uncharted 2. :-)
SEGA has officially destroyed any hopes of continuing or rebooting aliens or aliens vs. predator with the last 2 garbage quality games they released. Aliens colonial marines should have been released 10 years ago at the latest. This game looks like a failed attempt at an original Xbox game they resurrected for Xbox 360 to drum up some sales. The graphics are simply embarrassing. The only reason I played this game was to see where the story went because Asa huge alien fan, this story or something like it should have been the third alien movie. Between SEGA and FOX being extremely cheap, any video game and movie franchise regarding aliens has successfully been destroyed.
