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: Some people are solely judging this game and giving it low ratings because of the lies they were told. The truth is, this game does not suck! Is is great? No, but it does not suck. If you can get past the lies that Randy Pitchford and Gearbox told and sold you, this game is actually entertaining. The A.I. leaves a lot to be desired though. Often the A.I. will let aliens run right past them and other times they just can't seem to kill an alien that is right in their face.
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: 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.
Summary: Wow what can i say-been a gamer for a longggg time -I felt compelled to wright a review on this because I was disappointed!-- the campaign was way short---i felt the graphics where soooooo sub par.and the AI sucked (when i am shooting-- just a word of advise! don't walk in front of my gun!)... The saving grace was the tie in to the movies.... Ripley and Prometheus would be proud! I love the alien franchise and for some reason it seems hard to make a great game from it?
Summary: For years since it was announced I have been very excited for this game. However, I have to be honest and say that I was very disappointed. I have grown up with the Alien franchise and have always been a huge fan since I first saw Alien when I was 6. I've seen every movie and played many Alien games. I also am a huge gamer and play valued games mostly underground games but I have played hardcore games ranging from dark souls to casual/competitive games such as Halo.
Summary: This game had so much potential we were all hoping they wldnt screw this one up! Unfortunently i pre ordered and bought this game at full price :( hopefully they patch up some of the glitches which could make this a little better.
