Such a letdown
4 September 2014
Summary: Being an Alien fan myself meant I was pretty excited about this game when they finally gave it a release date. But after watching the hype Randy Pitchford made about this game before and playing this game after I doubt I'll take anything he says at face value ever again, which is a shame because gearbox made Borderlands 2, which I personally loved. Most of the sound effects are very good and authentic to the movie.
Summary: I bought this game and the only reason I still play it is because I am a huge alien fan. I wanted to burn this game when I got it and they didn't even give me an activation code. What more is there to say?
Summary: I purchased this very recently from Amazon on special for $2. I'm a big Aliens fan, but was very discouraged by all the bad reviews. I'm glad I stayed away until now. After downloading and installing, I started playing. I probably lasted about 45 minutes or so. I think the graphics are acceptable, but the AI is pretty sub par. Aliens completely skip your comrads and come straight for you most of the time.
Summary: Not worth full price. Graphics are bad and there are so many bugs that make the gameplay annoying. If you are a big fan of the aliens world and still want to play it.....wait till its 5 bucks.
Summary: The only thing the demo and the actual game have in common is the title. The demo I saw had a squad of marines; filled with atmosphere; dynamic lighting, bloom...it looked amazing, something that I would expect from Gearbox, a company I used to equate with quality. What you get in the game, point blank, is NOT what was displayed in the demos.
Summary: I guess I did get ripped off. As other reviews have stated, avoid the game like the plague. The game play is mediocre (shooting stuff) other than that, everything is sub-par. The game also runs like garbage on my PC (670 SLI). I did beat the campaign, only because I couldn't get a refund and didn't want to feel like I wasted $$$ on this. But playing the game, that is all I thought about and uninstalled it following its completion.
Summary: The graphics are laughable, the enemy AI is rediculous and the game itself is nothing like the game that has been advertised for the past six years. I am willing to bet that given six years a group of highly trained monkeys could make a better game. This honestly should not happen in 2013, by now the standards for video game quality have been set, and this just laughs in the face of all of them.
Summary: I am sure that most people like me, pre-ordered the game after watching so many previews and it sure looked good at the time....but wow, what a dissapointment. I pre-ordered the game at green man gaming with the usual 25- 30% off codes they offer so i decided to pick the game up, big mistake! first thing you will notice is how outdated the graphics are.
