"Game is a total let down"

Summary: If you are looking for a game filled with terror and horror, then this game
is NOT for you. The genre of alien jump scares and atmosphere are significantly
absent in this video game. The game is more of a mindless first person shooter
like call of duty than the traditional alien horror game. The game should have
been called “call of duty: weyland utani”. Not worth the money.
Summary: I am a big Aliens franchise fan and I have previous own and played the
original Alien vs Predator games 1 and 2. I bought this on special and to show some support to the franchise. But the
game has been disappointing. Game play is uninspired. But worse of all I could
connect or find anyone to play online with. Now the game is languishing
virtually unplayed. Such a shame for the franchise. I really hope this doesn't kill off future
games based in this universe.
Conclusion: Typical of a "must have" game,pants and then some. Single player,apart from the audio is linear,predictable and pathetic. Alien AI is almost the worst I've seen,wooden and hesitant. And the MP is just as bad,small maps and difficult controls on the xenos,and full of bottle necks which create a "don't go there effect" which limits play. All in all it's a game for laying down and avoiding.....save your money and buy Ms PAC man.....lots more game play there chaps.
Conclusion: I got this thinking it would be the ultimate aliens experience but unfortunately it ain't. Graphically it is not to bad in places and i do state PLACES!. The sound is excellently done most of the time and does sound like a genuine aliens movie hybrid, but the thing that lets this down the most is the alien AI in the campaign is just to poor, sometimes they just seem to pause infront of you when your reloading or other unexplainable things happen it just does not run well...
Excerpt: It's finally here and it's not good. The game looks really old & dated. The only thing this has going for it is the Aliens name. If it was any old shooter, it would be unplayable. The sound effects and music are a plus though.
