I am a die hard aliens fan . I have been waiting for this game for the last 3 yrs. I saw all of the reviews at e3 and was getting more and more stoked the more that they released . Here's my question . Well I have a lot , but the main one is how can the reviewers be so wrong . I played the game and within the first level I could see that they didn't just drop the ball . They deflated it and put it in the shredder . The graphics are appalling . I cannot believe that they used unreal 3 engine and this is the outcome. Also how can you get the story so wrong when 21st century fox gave you access to all of the movie material. In short stay away from this game . It's a train wreak

I'm going to start by pointing out the bad angles of this video game. There bits of glitchy/buggy/total BS moments, the enemy AI is poor, and the campaign is short--with a sub-par ending I might add.
However, good aspects include the game flowing at a (mostly) solid 60 FPS, the visuals are pretty decent, and the game sounds, both SFX and BGM, give you nostalgic goosebumps of the original Aliens film.
Overall, if you're looking for a glorious FPS experience, look elsewhere. If you're a big fan of the films, you're in for a decent treat.

I actually like this game a lot and I'm not one of those people that give 8's and 9's out to every game that is half way decent. I can see why people have a little bit of a complaint about the graphics because they're not that great, in fact it's one of the game's weak points but I honestly like a lot of parts about the game. I like the call of duty leveling system where you rank up during your campaign and it allows you to unlock weapons and attachments for the weapons by using the points you get by unlocking challenges and so forth. I haven't gotten online to play the multiplayer yet or the co-op (if there is one) but that's not why I bought the game in the first place. I buy games because I play a large percentage of my games as single player campaign mode type games and that's what I rented this game for. I'm not sure I would spend $40-$60 buying the game, but it's certainly worth renting, especially if you were into the aliens movies.
I suggest that if you're up in the air about this game and it's between this and something else, give this game a chance and don't read into the reviews too much. I'm very very surprised at how this game got a 4.8 ranking considering some of the other games on here that get up in the 7-8 range and I don't consider those particular games to be that great. Anyhow, give it a chance and don't let the pre-conceived notions about this game get into your head and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
