Summary: I bought this when it was on sale for only like 10 bucks new. I didn't have high expectations coming in because of all the bad press and reviews. Playing through, I actually didn't think it was all that bad. That is until I go to a boss fight that was unbeatable. If you've played this before, you strap in to a power loader and fight a giant alien as well as smaller aliens. It was so cheap in the way you would die, it was almost a joke.
Summary: Though first i'll say when i got it and went to redeem the dlc's they were expired, but i would recomend to those old school gamers, I think any that had the original xbox would enjoy this game. The gameplay was fun and rather enjoyed the story, and the voice actors were great, my favorite would be travis willingham aka col.
Summary: I got this collectors edition for 20$ and honestly I was really happy! All the free stuff that came with it and statue was awesome. In fact, in my mind the statue is what I paid for and the game was the bonus. The game has a ton of bugs in it, the story doesn't flow very well, and there was one time I had to reload a check point because I got stuck.
Summary: Game was in great shape and arrived on time! The story line is pretty good, graphics aren't bad either. Not as scary as it should be... you play the game along AI's and thus you aren't out there alone, and thus lowers the fear factor... but good game over all!
Summary: Honestly, haven't gotten to play the game just yet but there's plenty of reviews on it. I am a fan so despite the reviews I wanted to get it. Also, love the statue it comes with. The price was right and it shipped fine. Package was undamaged and it was everything it was supposed to be.
Summary: the collector's edition has a lot of fun goodies, and I love the figure of the marine fighting the xenomorph..... the game itself isn't anything to write home about, but as a lifelong fan of the Alien's series, I had to
“I say we take off, nuke the site from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.”

Summary: If you are a big fan of the Alien franchise, and want to trudge through a buggy wasteland, with poor graphics, dull lighting, clunky gameplay, with a great soundtrack and a heap of references from the Aliens film, then this game is for you. I originally pre-ordered the collector's edition, being a long-time fan of the Alien franchise. It wasn't delivered on the day of its release, and I'm glad it wasn't.
Summary: At release price, this review would have been 0/5. For $10, it is not that bad. Typical fps with nothing special going for it except that it has the Aliens license. I knew going into it that it had terrible reviews across the board, but for the price, the only thing that bothered me was the ending, or lack of one.
