This game is pretty solid! The graphics are solid and the game plays well. My only complaint is that the game feels and moves slow. After the first 20 minutes have the "scary music" becomes annoying. This game series does not deserve to be rated as highly as it has been over the years, but it is a solid attempt by EA to have a quality game other than sports and the Mass Effect series.
If you haven't had a chance to place this game, its well worth it even though its an older title. It has all the aspects of a great game to match today's titles. Its a good combination or horror and action with great diversity with gameplay.
Good: The all around gameplay is fantastic. You have multiple weapons and actions to choose from when facing a monster. You have to find the schematics for each weapon. (its not as hard as it sounds). The game is pretty linear so just check every corner to find them and the "logs" too.
Bad: There isn't much to say that's bad here. Its an isolated environment so don't expect much AI interaction. You do speak with a few people throughout the game during play with a projector though. If you are jumpy or get scared very easily, don't play this.
Ugly: I have to stay the "hardcore" mode. I love a challenge to a game (dark souls is a favorite) but this is too far. Its like being a guitar hero fan and playing Jordan on expert. Its too hard to even be fun.

the game was full of thrills & action. the controls were good, in my opinion it has the controls for any third person shooter ive played making the aim for guns like call of duty made a lot easier to play. a couple of problems i had were the ammo the ammo always seemed to run out leaving you with stomp which you had to do twice or three times to kill an alien in which time you would die or lose nearly all your health. another problem the story was predictable at some major points even tho you had no idea when aliens would pop up. i cant believe i almost didnt get this game because of the demo, it was horrific and i dont mean in a scary way the demo left you off in the middle of the story with no ammo and no instructions on how to play. since the controls were good and the walking around was like watching a thriller i guess im going to rate this game a 7/10
