Oh Man I'm getting so excited! Its not very often that bad reviews get me excited to play a game but I just keep thinking... every bad review is going to drop the price faster. I hope it breaks Duke Nukem's record of going from $60 to $15 in less then a month. I just want to play the story and I figure $15 bucks is worth the story even with crap gameplay.
The game is fun. I blame the game reviewers who hate on any game that isn't mainstream. You all know what I'm talking about. If its not Battlefield, Call of Duty, or any other franchise game then it might as well be a bug. So many reviewers tried to compare this game to others, but the thing is, you can't. A:CM is its own genre. There is no true comparison.
Jax that's BS. Aliens is a huge franchise and this game had so much hype around it. It's certainly mainstream. Game reviewers had really high expectations for it. And the irony of your comment is that A:CM ended up being even more boring than a COD game. They had worse AI, worse multiplayer modes, an equally incomprehensible story, and even worse graphics. Don't defend such crap.
