Weak

Why I never pre-order a game

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.

Do Not Waste Time Playing This Game!

Let's just say this is a wanna be Dead Space. I think they did a haphazard job making this game. I feel as though that the quality of the game is bad. This is by far one of the top 10 worst games I had played.
