2.0 out of 5 stars Rent or borrow, DO NOT waste $60 !! February 18, 2013
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard Edition
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!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been the Epic Alien game, it isn't. February 13, 2013
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars What's with all the hate? December 15, 2013
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard Edition
To be fair, at this point I haven't completed the entire game. With that being said, I think I could safely conclude that I have put in enough hours to make an informed decision about the quality of it (After gaming for so long, I don't need to beat it to tell whether or not the experience is enjoyable for me). Also I haven't played the multi, as I am more of a single player experience kind of gamer.

I don't really understand what people were expecting from this title. These days, it's more about the anticipation and build up BEFORE a game's release than the actual experience of the game post-release, it would seem. I think that may contribute to why this game has received such poor reviews all over. Beyond that, I don't feel like it deserves the "Waste of time", "Unplayable" "Awful" reviews people have given it.This game took a while to develop for sure. But it was made specifically for nostalgic fans of the Alien saga who are looking to experience an extension of Cameron's "Aliens" hit film. I think they got it.

The story extends off of Aliens, with Michael Biehn's Corporal Hicks sending out a distress call to other Colonial Marines, and you answering it by attempting to provide relief. Without going into detail, the story focuses on a set crew of characters whose voice acting though lackluster, gradually help you immerse yourself into the atmosphere. The "No Marine left behind" mentality weaves in nicely with orders and actions take to create tension among the characters, and contributes to the overall story arch. Whether or not you can take it seriously is up to you (I was able to, but then again I am an Alien fan boy).

I will say that there are some apparent issues.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so great, buy only if you are a hardcore fan February 20, 2013
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard Edition
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.
