i never played this yet in fact the game was sent threw the mail yesterday so i am waiting to try this out but my best friend says it stinks..says it's not even worth renting it but i'm going to try it but my best friend & i have good judgement on video games so i'll probably hate it but i just want to kill those ugly long tonge aliens with acid lol..i never read up on this game but if there is no horde mode the second i see that i am going to drive up the mail service & say tale this stupid game lol sorry my review isn't help at all but i just had to say this....i rate this game a 2 & never played it yet lol
what can i say that hasn't already been said in other reviews. We were promised the sky and gearbox didn't deliver. I can't blame gearbox since the project was handed over from 5 different publishers but when you deliver a less than mediocre product with a fanbase that demands perfection.
The game could have been made better by improving its AI or getting rid of the NPC characters and putting you alone in the game which makes the series terrifying. There was no level where its you alone in a hanger and there is an alien stalker tracking you and its just you and your motion tracker.
Its misguided focus on fighting humans rather than aliens for a majority of the game, its limp storyline and the way it tried to change the 'lore' of the game really hit the fans the hardest.
I really someone in the future sees the potential to make this a "survival horror" game which the aliens franchise needs (amnesia +aliens). People would be talking about that game for ages and not just giving people a vanilla shooter.
I really enjoy this game it reminds me of a Doom 3 type of play and probably would not be out of place as a mod to Doom 3. If you enjoy just straight non-stop shooting with very few breaks you need to try this game.
