As alot of other players I'm a fan of the Aliens francise.

I gave this game a 3 since the weapons were fun to use, other then that the game could have been better.

Aliens are supposed to be stealthy hunters and be cunning, in this came they are dumb as bricks.

All in all bleh game for a great francise.

The Aliens series has ALOT of potential to be one of the greatest horror surviver games out there. I've read quite a few of the comics and books (Colonial Marines being one line in the series). Most of them are very suspenseful and give you a feel for just how creepy that scenario really would be. The game, not so much. They geared it heavily towards the shooter realm and gave it nothing of a suspenseful or creepy vibe. Most of the game you were actually fighting humans. I love a good coop game and the idea was good but the execution was lackluster. Aside from the shotty storyline and gameplay the graphics are lacking and cartoony. If they redid this game it should be done as a 2-4 player coop survivor based scenerio. Scrap the old movie throwbacks and go with something original and true to the horror genre.

This game will massively disappoint fans of Aliens, especially if you've played the original AvP or AvP2, or even Alien Trilogy on PS1. Aliens: CM should have remained cancelled in 2002, as it looks and plays like it was exhumed from its unfinished state 11 years later and unleashed with few improvements onto the general public in 2013. It nails the atmosphere and attention to detail of the film (except for the part where you explore the LV-426 outpost as if the nuclear explosion never happened) but that's all it has going for it. The FPS action is average as average gets, it's hideous to look at, the levels are incomplete with holes and floating fixtures, the voice acting can be hilariously bad at times, and animations can turn unintentionally grotesque and jerky. I just cannot recommend this game, even to open-minded Aliens fans.
