I was told by many people that this was the scariest game ever but, I rented this and started to play it was not even scary to even my 6 year old niece so, I put the scary part out of my mind thinking maybe its still a good game wrong again. As, I played I realized the game goes like this 10 min cut scene 5 min game play 10 min cut scene 5 min game play over and over again. The camera angle in this game is hands out the worst camera angle ever half the time you can't see whats going on and you move so slowly that monster are on you before you can even shoot. It's not a scary game it's just gross bodies explode and turn into weird alien things. Oh and if you like to plat co-op then you better buy the 800 Microsoft online pass or you can even play co-op with friends. all I give it a 1 out of 10 for it bad game play boring story and the fact that I have played Mario games scarier then this.
I was so excited to play the third game in this amazing franchise but couldn't help feeling disappointed. This game is way too slow and the environments are too repetitive and stale. You have to go to one place then venture all the way back to the place your started (many times). For most of the game it feels like you are going around in circles through the same stale environments. It pisses me off because the graphics and gameplay are top notch, but they forgot to include the "fun" factor which is interesting enemies and great places to have epic shootouts and such. I guess this one isn't for everyone. I played Aliens Colonial Marines a few days after beating this one and though the production isn't nearly as great as this one, it was a a lot more fun for me. If you want a great looking game and don't need new interesting environments then check this one out. I would just rent Aliens Colonial marines instead. Much more fun in my opinion. Hope the next installment is better like the previous two installments of this sick franchise. I will say that the last 5 chapters were pretty fun, but that's 5 out of 20. They should've tried a lot harder for a game of this magnitude. Hope I'm not offending hardcore fans of the franchise, but that's just how I feel regarding this game.
