Had high hopes.

Summary: So upon first impressions, this game is ok. So far the single player is ok. A bit of a strech storyline wise but fine. I had very high hopes for multiplayer to be a pseudo Left 4 Dead Aliens style. Massive hordes of aliens, 4 marines start here end there and you just have to survive. It even seems like it would have been perfect L4D clone...4 classes of aliens: normal = zombie, lurker = jockey, spitter and tank. is it too much to ask for them to redo multiplayer?
Summary: I can see why this game would not be appealing to non Aliens fans, you don't know whats going on. But as a fan, you'll love it. The graphics are fair, if you have a good gaming PC like i do. The AI is pretty solid. I wasn't a big fan of the sound it would cut out alot, mostly do to the fact that if you would get in range of the character speaking it would cut to the character instead of through the headpiece.
Summary: This game is great for the Older Adult who nostalgically remember and appreciate the movie . Aliens is a 1986 science fiction action film directed by James Cameron and starring Sigourney Weaver with back then she was the only reason i wanted to see it but this game is in one word "awesome" ! Not only does this game bring the movie to life but actual game play and choices in guns makes it much more fun.
Summary: As a lifelong fine of the Alien franchise (Alien, Aliens) to the point that i have most of the dialogue of Aliens memorized I find this game very fun and engaging. It really puts you into the dark Universe of the Xenomorphs.
Summary: This game is getting horrible reviews. Honestly the game does not deserve the ratings it is getting. True, graphics are not cutting edge, and the game play is a pretty standard FPS format. Again, nothing new or exciting. But with that said, the game is still a solid FPS with much to offer the average player. Maybe a rating of 6 - 7 for the non Alien fan would be fair.
Summary: I had seriously been looking forward to this game since the announcement of it. What an extreme let down it has been. Almost everything in this game is flawed and just plain BAD. The sound is awful, especially on the guns. The graphics look like they're from a game 6 years ago. And the game reminds me of a shooter of an arcade game you would play in a Pizza Hut when you were a kid. I hope some of you read this before you waste your $60 on this atrocity.
Summary: This game is almost like a add-on to a normal game, it has cruddy graphics, horrible sound and the game play is sloppy and unfinished, if they had a redo-over they could have made this a great game.
Summary: I played almost halfway through the campaign and the game is another duke nukem forever failure. Gameplay is awful, graphics dont even look like there from this generation. and the story sucks. The campaign is full of lag and framerate problems and enemies sometimes completely dissapear or don't respond when you shoot them. If you were expecting this to even be an alright game based in the alien universe its sheer dissapointment.
