This is a good take on the Aliens franchise and a decent tie in to the series but it lacks in the fields where it could excell. Very engagging storyline and decent enough game play that it can provide a fair amount of fun but it is not as catchy like some other shooters are.
Weapons load out is very limited and not alot of customizable attachments. Your inventory doesn't even include big guns like rocket launchers.
The A.I. is completely off and lacks the proper facial expressions. It is just stationary and simular to that of puppets like the nutcracker with only the mouth moving. Don't let me get started with the intelligence of the A.I., you are always setting off trying to save a lost companion because they're weren't smart enough to stay put which is a poor excuse to keep the story going.
Worst part is the multiplayer - which only deserves one word TERRIBLE. Not even worth my time writing about it.
Overall - this game is worth to "rent" only just for the campaign story which allows you to see its tie in to the movie franchise but other than that - game hss nothing positive to discuss.
While I enjoyed the game for the memories it brought back and how I wanted to be like Hicks and Hudson. It left me feeling underwhelmed. I enjoyed the tracker and the pulse rifles, but found anything other then the shotgun too hard to handle and clumsy to use and way over powered.
