This game is really not as bad as everyone is saying. Honestly, it's just a matter of expecting what it is you're getting: an on-rails arcade-style shooter based on a dumb movie. You have a few different weapons and a few different abilities, which all feel a bit distinct. There are stealth sections that are surprisingly functional for this kind of game. As you're moved automatically through levels, you can take cover and use your weapons and gadgets to destroy hundreds of aliens in a 4 hour or so game. It's actually a bit fun. Extremely easy achievements as well, I got 1000gs in about 8 hours.
If you don't expect too much from this game and are looking for some easy gamer score, you are going to love this game. Achievements pop with satisfying frequency as you blast your way through the 8 short chapters in this game.
You do get to shoot the Noisy Cricket, so what's not to love? Rent it, play it for about 4 hours, and enjoy the 800+ points of easy gamer score.

This is a great game. If you are a fan of the movies or shooters in general you will love this. It has very good graphics, a great story, great voice acting and is very fun. Do yourself a favor and play this game asap.
