A horrible game from a good developer

Summary: This game just screams "rushed." The ideas and gameplay talked/shown at press conferences never made it into the game although they did look amazing. That right there tells me that the ideas were there but whether through time constraints or budget constraints it just never made it into the game. It's not often I'll rate a product so low but this is a rare exception. The game is bad and the nostalgia factor only allows you to look past a couple problems.
Summary: What a terrible disappointment... and waste of $60.00 (yep, I was stupid enough to pre-order). I see it is now selling for less than $30, and that is still too much. The game is very formulaic, requiring you to do specific, detailed steps in the right order. No freedom of movement, lots of trigger points to make the next action commence, and HORRIBLE LAG (during conflict) between what I am doing with my controller and when my character/weapon actually respond.
Summary: The only good that can come from this game is the multiplayer & the customization. That's it. The rest is just a poor attempt to make a game. The "Aliens: INFESTATION" for the DS is better than this game by a mile and it has lesser graphics/is a side scroller lol. They shoulda got Ubisoft to work on the game...wtf were they thinking getting SEGA for?
Summary: They lied to the public and did nothing really to fix it. I bought this for the season pass, but after playing the demo and the game I found a huge difference in the game. With years of development this was greatly disappointing.
absolutely terrible. 3 year old games look/player better than this.

Summary: I'll never buy another Sega game at launch after this one, they'll have to do a lot to even get me to consider one. the graphics and the game play look and feel a generation older than they are. I wont even mention the aweful storyline & plot twists - you'll be regretting buying or renting this game before you even get that far. If you want to play a better aliens game you've got a better chance with the last AvP game that came out a while back.
This game is so bad it forced me to write my first Amazon review.

Summary: This is my first review for Amazon. I am a big fan of the Alien franchise and have played all the Alien games, from PC to the original PlayStation game, to the various AvP games. I have to tell you, I had High Hopes for this game. I actually used to do business with Game Stop corporate and heard about the game at the corporate headquarters in the Dallas area as the game was development over 4 years ago!!! I was so anxious to play this game.
