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

Feels broken

I read the bad reviews. Despite the bad reviews, I decided to give this a fair chance. The truth is that the game feels broken and rushed. Aiming is a pain and close quarters combat (melee) is flawed. Aliens vs Predator plays a heck of a lot better than this game as the controls are responsive. As for the graphics, the environment looks nice from a distance but as you walk up to it, it will reveal its ugly low resolution pixelated objects (like Duke Nukem Forever). I wanted to like it but its flaws just didn't allow it.

all i can say is this game is so disappointing... wanted it to be good, but from the mediocre graphics and controls, to the bad level design, this game fails, fails, fails.... save your time and avoid at all costs...
