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.

Not sure what people were expecting with all the negative reviews. Yes, this game could have been amazing, they had plenty of time and resources to knock this out of the park. While that didn't happen, this is certainly not as bad as the reviews show.
The graphics are okay, better than Doom 3. The voice acting is good. The weapons have some okay upgrades, the "smart-guns" are awesome. The only real issue I had was with the mediocre AI of your teammates. They tend to get stuck in corners or in doorways until you get far enough away that they re-appear right next to you. Also, a cover system could have helped some of the battles when you're outnumbered and out gunned.
Bottom line: Worth Renting for a weekend of Alien shooter fun
