Summary: It's not as bad as many of the reviews I've read say it is, but it's a far cry from what we were promised it would be. I had rose colored glasses on when I played through this game the first time and loved it. Mostly for the multiplayer but the sound goes a long way to pull you into the story.
Summary: Okay after playing the HORRIBLE first time play through of the entire game. The 2nd and 3rd time playing was MUCH EASIER and FUN, like a normal FPS should be like. The STORY was awesome and original. BUT NOW, some MEAN EVIL fool has made an update. If you do not take the update it takes AWAY YOUR RIPLY's Flamethrower Gun combo GUN, WHY? and it also WILL NOT LET YOU LOG ONTO XBOX LIVE.
Summary: Let Me Just Get One Thing Clear From The Start This Is NOT What We Wanted After Waiting Six Long Years With That Said I Will Say That Believe It Or Not I Did Find Myself Enjoying The Game More Than I Thought I Would It's Brainless Fun For A Few Hours If You Can Forget All It's Flaws And I Know There's So Many It Might Be Hard For Some To Do Aliens Colonial Marines Story Is A Joke And For Aliens Fans It's A Complete Let Down It's Not Engaging And For The Most Part It...
Summary: Why Purchased?: Needed a game to play that would give some fun gameplay Like: The graphics are smoother than expected. The graphics look different on screen in actual gameplay.(Watching on websites like youtube on 1080HD will not show gamers the graphics). The gameplay is smooth, and controls are very easy to learn both online and single player. Weapons and the Aliens "Xenomorphs" are fun to play and can be customized to anyones like.
Rent this before buying or buy used. Game not worth $60s new.

Summary: I bought this product because I'm a fan of Ridley Scott's Alien Anthology + Prometheus. This takes place after the events on LV-426. My solo playthrough on Hardened difficulty, took me approx 8-9 hours. I enjoyed the sound of the pulse rifle, some scenery locations and many Easter Eggs. However, I encountered annoying bugs: (1) The way the friendly AI move, there inconsistent. Sometimes I appreciate O'Neil running ahead of me to clear out xeno's.
Summary: I am a huge aliens fan, and I was looking forward to this game since I heard of it's development. Aliens games in the past have been mediocre but when I saw that gearbox was behind this, I had high hopes. After finishing the game and playing the multiplayer I have to say, this game failed to deliver. The graphics are dated, the combat is clunky and monotonous and the game itself is full of so many glitches it's hard to look past them.
Summary: i had high hope trailers screen shots made this game look so good. I finally thought there was an alien game to be proud of the only thing they seem to get right was the sounds of the game. the story was blah an the graphics are alright the mechanics of the game are alright some glitches here an there and online have very short games from what i played. the A.I. helps every now an then but sometimes just sit there an watch you die.
