Not terrible, but not the best.

Summary: I've played quite a few FPS games over the years and in regards to this particular game, I would rank it somewhere along the lines of FEAR 3. Now although that might be saying something about how cool looking the environment and gaming engine itself is, keep in mind that FEAR 3 was already 3 years old when this game was released meaning that the gaming engine (along with some of the other effects) in this particular game should have been a little bit better.
Summary: Having just finished the game, I have to say I was satisfied. A couple of caveats for me: I only paid $10 for the game, I have the benefit of all the most recent patches that apparently fixed a lot of the issues, and I am a casual fan of the Alien(s) franchise, from the movies to the old AVP on PC (still need to try the newer one on consoles). Is this a AAA title? Some parts yes, some no. Was it fun?
Summary: This game is thoroughly enjoyable. The graphics may not be the best I've seen but the aliens look great and the environments are good with a nostalgic feel to them any aliens fan would pick up on. Gameplay-wise its like every other shooter out there which is not necessarily a bad thing since most shooters follow the same framework i.e see stuff then shoot stuff whether online or off.
It is not the best first-person shooter but I like it.

Summary: I will first start by briefly explaining how I rate a game. To give a game anything less than 30% (in this case, less than 2 stars), it has to have some major flaws. Flaws such as being able to walk through walls or weapons not working properly. As long as the game works the way it should, I think it should have at least two stars.
campaign gets boring but bughunt dlc has high replayable values.

Summary: campaign is fun the first few time playingm after you complete the missions the campaign got repetiitive and boring. However BUGHUNT DLC saves this game with its 3 maps and its online/offline 4 players and solo play making it a very high replayable value. If sega can come out with more dlc with more bughunt maps and various enhancement to the game then this game will be enjoyment for years to come.
Summary: Ok, it's Jan 2014, and I finally got this game on sale. I heard so many bad things that I didn't even want to touch this with a 10 foot pole. However, this game is actually pretty fun. I've only played the single player and am liking it so much that I wanted to write a review for it before I forgot. Don't get me wrong, this game has some problems, but the main thing is that it's Fun. Yeah, that is subjective, but if you like the Aliens film.
Summary: I understand this game may have some flaws and lack of sound quality but this game is addicting (at least for me). I don't get why so many people hate this game. the graphics are pretty good and if they came with a new version with no glitches and better sound quality i would definitely buy it.
Summary: Great first person shooter especially if you're a fan of the movies! I have only played the campaign so far and almost beat it within a week, so maybe could of added more to it. Controls can be awkward at times. All in all a fun game though.
