The minis are absolutely outstanding sculpts and casts. Similar quality usually runs $30 a piece.
The tiles look incredible, and theirs a ton of them.
The game aids (tokens and such) are useful but kinda mechanically useless. The core mechanic works for character movement and concealment but all the tokens have the same graphic per faction so they have zero correlation with the actual piece they are supposed to represent. It almost makes them useless as players can't accurately track their Marines locations. The action tokens are useful, but they could have made a couple extras for the Marines and predators. There's predator cloak tokens to disguise their position, I love the element they bring to the game.
Cards! The card backs all look WAY to similar, so separating the sets into card boxes to organize them will save time and hassel in the long run. They are useful, visually pretty clear, and the fronts look awesome. There's great diversity in mission cards, random events, lots of great stuff with the events content.
The box is ok. Almost everything fit back into it (Except my card boxes), it's a tad on the thin side. My foam tray for protecting the minis is a mess it warped somehow, but it's still useful and it is nicer to have than not have.
Rule book. It's has some great ideas and very useful for playing a game. It's based on a D20 system so it's really easy to pick up the concepts if your familiar with RPGs. Some of the rules are just blatantly messed up. Like on one page they tell you rolling a 20 is a critical failure and 1 is a critical success, which isn't how D20's work. So the next page it goes right back to the classic D20 mechanic in the description for armor use to beat the armor score for a hit. Further into it, the test rolls require you to roll under the character stat for a success. It's a mess of inconsistency. Other things in the book still need fixed, but hay I'm not getting payed to fix their fumbles. You'll have to work out some details.
I wish they had a better system included for some real character progression, equipment acquisitions and stat adjustments for Marines and predators would be great game play elements to include in the core. The evolution of the alien works well but you need the expansions to do it. There's tons of potential for support from ninja division, and I hope they do. They have plans for a war games ruleset release, but I have zero interest in that.
Player count? It says 1-3 but we played with everyone running their own Marine vs aliens and it was a blast. Divide the Marines up between players, divide the predators up for a ultimate hunt, aliens are super fun especially with the expansion sets, you can really get a lot of players in if you wanted. It's a board game not a video game game so you can adjust it as you see fit.
All things considered I'm a big alien and predator fan, I love table top games (especially crawls and team strategy). It's a solid buy, even with it's imperfections. Oh, and you are going to want to buy every expansion. Each one adds their own fantastic touch to the gameplay and tension of the ping markers.
