Good

Solid not Scary

This game is solid and pretty fun but it isn't very scary, don't get me wrong it was very startling the first few times the dead aliens pop'd back up but it wasn't the kind of lasting fear that is usually present in most horror games, but i have to say that it is definitely an improvement from the last game and the game play and multi-player are enjoyable.
So i would definitely recommend this as a rent 7-7.5

This game.... I love this game.

My first play through was a six hour run on a Friday night. I got off work and played until 2 am.

Everything that makes game a great is here. Visual and audio affects, tight controls and camera angles, and an intense story.

As always the game feels like you are right there with Clark, the lack of an bulky HUD really keeps you in the game. Although the stoic Clark for the first game was cool. No one goes through that without being changed, but he is still very human and doesn't copy an established video game archetypes.

A quick word on EA's marketing campaign. My mom took me to the release of Aliens in 1986 I was 6 years old. She loves scary movies and loves watching scary video games. That being said EA was too heavy handed marketing it. This game's pedigree alone was enough to make me want to buy it. Basically this game deserved better than what EA's marketing department came up with.
