I came into this game with some reasonable expectations for this game. It is a movie franchise converted into a game and they never turn out that great but this one was just bad. graphics were way behind the times, the enemies were not very engaging, and the pace just seemed to move very slow.
The key to the Aliens franchise has always been the suspense and horror of the aliens coming out of the walls and shocking you. This game felt as if you were fighting dumb chimps instead of a dangerous killing machine and the aliens exploded when they were killed for no reason.
along with the poor gameplay the story was not very compelling either I never felt like I was being drawn into the game.
This game could have been much better if they tried to do something in the ilk of Dead Space. with scary monsters popping out and creating a sense of tension and fear throughout the game.
Take my advice pass on this game and get one that doesn't seem like it is solely relying on the brand name.
I was a little leery on purchasing this game, so i decided to rent it on here. I had a lot of fun playing through the campaign, but the graphics and overall feel of the game, felt cheap to me. I had a few issues with the multi-player as far as glitches go. I wouldn't suggest buying this game at the price it's at now. But as far as a rental goes, its worth while. Mostly for the campaign though.
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
