the game was an ok game, the multiplayer was fun, but the campaign had no feeling or emotion to it. It didn't spark much interest to me, and I think im speaking for a lot of Alien fans when I say we want more suspense and danger in our games.
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.
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.
