Very Good

A must have for ans of the Alien Series

While game content could b a little better, and game itself longer gameplay. I still highly recommend this game, for those Alien movie enthusiast. The feel of this game is totally Aliens 2, with a bit of Prometheus thrown in. Fom the Atmospheric effects and planetary environment to exploring the derelict ship. The power loader is a whole lot of fun, especially when battling bosses.

You take this along with assortment of weapons are impressive and the variety of Xenos you come face to face. Plus the many original animated movies scenes this game is must play.

Hopefully with the downloadable content packages coming, we will get to see more content from the engineers and derelict ship to new missions packs.

Game was good but hard

This game proved to be quite difficult to beat even on easy setting. Some of the aliens would take over 1/2 of a magazine to kill and if they get close and hit you more than twice you are dead even with full health. Your AI backup was pretty much none existant for most of the game. They would shoot at the aliens, but would rarely kill them. there was upgrades you could do to your weapons which was a good pro of the game. Wish you could have upgraded your armor and health but the weapon thing was nice. Great sound affects in the game, and definatly jumped a few times.

Recommend giving it a try if you want a good challenge. Only played solo campaign so not sure how the online parts went I heard they are glitchy and suck, but never tired that to be sure.

The game is probably playable on lower difficulties, but on the highest, your weapons are practically useless, even with upgrades. The game was cool, as an Aliens fan, but I didn't find the game fun enough to sit through playing the entire thing. Checkpoints are way too far apart, and as easily as enemies can kill you, with one simple mistake you can be replaying the last 10-15 minutes that you already played. 4/10
