what is the most important aspect in any game? is it fun? my answer is yes this game is beyond fun to play, especially with a team of players. i havent played many games where i can continuously play because it is nothing but fun. all of that aside the graphics are last generation and the plot resembles one of the later alien films where brief but yet mildly enjoyable. to me this is "aliens".
I just finished the game, and let me first say that the game looks NOTHING like the screens and videos displayed on this very page. This game looks like it would have been a really pretty game on the original xbox in about 2004. If you pretend you're just playing an Aliens game from that period that you missed, it's actually a pretty enjoyable experience. There is obviously a lot of love and care to make a genuine feeling Aliens experience, and the sound effects and music were enough to keep my playing, even though the game really just gets worse in the second half. But I recognize that I'm a huge Aliens fan and can say that if you aren't, this is about the most ugly and generic first person shooter on the market right now.
