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...
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.
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.
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).
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.
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!
