Don't expect a AAA title, but there is a solid shooter here in the aliens universe. From the looks of it, this game was linked to the more recent movie Prometheus.
If you like aliens its worth a rent. As for game play this game does not "snap" your targeting onto a enemy like the more modern titles. I think this may be why some reviewers complain about it. And Yes you WILL die at the hands of the aliens until you get the hang of it.
Don't Believe the 5.1 rating it's better then that

Ok let me first off say that if you never watched any of these movies don't play the game because you are ruining the rating of this game. DON'T PUT IN A REVIEW!!!! I Am 17 years old i grew up watching these movies i have the director's cut of all of these movies even the movie Prometheus. I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS GAME FOR SIX YEARS no joke. there is nothing wrong with this game. one of the best i have played in the last 2 years. yes the needed a little work on the details of the gameplay. i thought the weapons need a little bit of work. but over all this game was fun, thrilling, funny at times, and all around a good game. the fact that you get to go back to the planet that started the whole franchise of aliens is amazing just straight out amazing. the game was fine a bit chopping in areas. but you have to under stand if you never watched one of these movies you wont like the game because you will have no idea what really is going on. why because the story is much more then just killing aliens. i gave this game a 8 becaseu its really a 8 very well done i dont care what people say. i thought the last to mw were not worth 8s or even 9s dont believe the hype that this game is bad its not. long campaign cool parts from the movies yes all of them even the new one Prometheus. but i am stressing that if you have never seen the moives you will not like the game. this game is worth renting or even buying.

Although the graphics of this Aliens game were below what I had expected for a game of 2013, It's one of the most amazing games I've played. It has a great leveling system with wonderful customization capabilities for the marines. Playing as the Xenomorphs in multiplayer had to be the most fun all together, although, crawling on walls and the ceiling had terrible controls, it felt, somewhat realistic. They should have also had a wider range of customization, like, more abilities, head options, with less skins. Most of the skins are barely even noticeable. Other than those small kinks, It's a great game, and I strongly recommend it.
