Awful...this is worse than duke nukem forever. The marketing campaign and advertising lead-up only made it worse...I am a huge Aliens fan and found myself obligated to finish the game only because I spent 60 bucks on this turd. The liberties taken with the existing movie plot are weak and lack continuity, the game is a sub-par 1st person shooter, and the graphics are late ps2 quality. The sound is spot on, but that is the only redeeming feature of the game. The multiplayer mode is supposed to be decent, but I was so disgusted with the story mode I didn't even bother. I grew up adoring this franchise and that may have raised my expectations too high but even the Aliens license isn't enough for me to overlook the steaming pile of poo that has been in the works since 2006. SNES Alien 3, the arcade Aliens, AvP for the pc and the 2010 ps3 AvP are all better titles. I am a sucker because I plunked down the dough for this travesty, so please learn from my mistake!!!

I was very excited to play this and I even bought the season pass. sigh... I think I logged maybe 6-7 hours playing the whole thing and it was over before I even knew it, the ending is strange and not cathartic at all. The AI is inferior to what we usually have today, you can shoot your own guys while shooting at an alien, and your own marines step in your line of fire. The game itself looks ok, but just ok. Nothing groundbreaking. It is somewhat of a decent story. In the end, it feels more like an add-on that should have sold for $20. I suspect that's how much it will be by summer. I have been playing Dead Space 3 at the same time, now that is a game that meets current 2013 expectations. I know it's not really to compare but they did come out within a week of each other.

I got the game yesterday 2/12 and it was the collectors edition
which comes with loads of goodies that really are not worth 100 bucks
the game itself is flawed with Lag in MP along with weird pop in
and texture issues, framerate drops.
you must be asking "Then why did you give it three stars?"
the Multiplayer has potential to be excellent that is if
a whole lot of patching takes place since we all know it looks
pretty below par of the games of this generation.
right now as it stands I'd say wait a few months and
let the game get patches and fixes. after patching
it might be a better game but as of this writing I can only
recommend this to the most hardcore fans.

another problem with MP is the very long lobby matchmaking times.
sometimes you get a game in 1-2 minutes other times you're waiting
TEN minutes for it to stop "Searching".
I expected so much more from Sega and Gearbox.

there's a nice selection of weapons ranging from the flamethrower, Pulse rifle
and an assortment of other iconic film weapons.
there's also legendary weapons that are a nice touch with higher stats
then the regular versions of the weapons. the phased pulse rifle is neat
but far too slow to fire. the ball breakers are cool though.
the skins were not really that nifty and the firing range is just ok.
loads of customization for the MP and both for xeno's and humans
as well as online weapons. you can add sights, underslung attachments,
and other options. you also get skill upgrades as both sides.

the game really shines in spots only to be ruined by bugs and glitches.

Wow, talk about bait and switch. No wonder Sega wanted to pull the plug on this project.

I preordered this game through a different retailer. I was excited after the success of AVP3, and thought that if Rebellion did a wonderful job working on 3 different game mechanics (Xenomorph, Predator, Colonial Marine) than clearly Gearbox could do an amazing job focusing on just two. Plus, we all remember the E3 demo of the game. You know, the fake one! The one that was just an elaborate cut scene to fool potential buyers!

I thought I was going to get a game that would let me indulge in my childhood fantasy of being a colonial marine. Getting to use the Pulse rifle and even cut down Xenomorphs with the Smart Gun. But instead, we got an awful story and a seriously broken game.

Pros:
- The closest simulation of what it would be like to use the smart gun
- iron sights
- There's one level in the game that is genuinely scary. I'm not going to spoil it. But the only hint is that its a sewer level.
- First time you come face-to-face with a xenomorph might have you on the edge of your seat.

Cons:
- Poor story. The ending was so awful, it make the Mass Effect 3 controversy look a lot more appealing. Even though the DLC clears up one plot hole in the story, there's still some other pretty glaring problems that are still yet to be addressed.
- Xenomorph AI is glitchy. Plus, they don't behave as advertised. Instead of utilizing surfaces to flank you and catch you off-guard, they will just attack you from the front like dumb missiles.
- Texture popping
- Lip-synch is barely passible
- Final boss fight is a lame rip-off of the ending in ALIENS
- Turns into COD way too soon. That section should have been saved for later!!!!
