Top Customer Reviews
I bought it during a five dollar blowout, and even at double that price, this game is fun and kinda creepy like the movie. The lighting and atmosphere is very close to the movies.
The sound is right, the visuals are right, the fact that there are challenges and ranking up and gun customizing in the campaign are all pretty cool. I don't have 2 copies to try co-op, but most reviews say that is when the fun really starts.
There are a few minutes of tunnel running, without resistance, now and then, but wasn't that also present in all the movies? If you know an alien is going to jump out every where you go, then there is no suspense. And it would take forever to get through a level. I still tend to close doors behind me, though, just in case.
If you are a fan of the movie, and you can get it at a good price, I say why not?
The AI is ridiculous, and the difficulty is not balanced whatsoever. I am a veteran of FPS games since the beginning of the 1990s, and it is very hard to make me not want to play an FPS game. The controls bugged me, the FOV bugged me. The graphics are not even a highlight, to be honest. I used to be a huge fan of the Unreal engine, and that ended upon the Unreal Engine 3 iteration. It looks and runs worse than it should. Now, that all is not totally Gearbox's fault, but they did make the decision to use the engine.
If I could have been refunded at the time for a digital copy, I would have definitely returned it. I paid very little for it on Amazon, by the way. I have little to no faith to go back and see if anything has even been fixed, and I doubt they'd be fixed enough to make me go through the game. I wish this game would stop showing up in my Steam library.
I just bought the game. I grew up loving Aliens (and specifically the second movie) and loved when I heard about this game.
I hated what I heard when it released though.
Then I read that the PC version was patched pretty well, and graphical improvements were made.
So I have always wanted to try it ever since.
I just grabbed it on sale for $2. Yeah, about the cost of a cup of coffee.
I have to say, it is what I expected. I won't say it is bad, but I won't say it is good. Mind you, I have just played the intro and not the full game, but the feel of the whole thing is there.
So here are some bullet points I think spell it all out:
Graphics aren't bad. They aren't stellar either, but it looks decent. Shadows could have been better to make the characters look more in the game than on the game, but overall it looks good enough to play and then some.
The sounds are pretty dead on. From the sound of the rifle to the squeal of the alien they really got that right.
The difficulty is moderate. I can say from pre-patch reading there was no difficulty. Now it seems standard. I am playing on normal and it was not a piece of cake, but not extremely difficult either.
The AI is improved from pre-patch (from videos I had seen) but it is still wonky. The Aliens almost exclusively attack you. They might attack another marine occasionally, but they rush you. Your marine buddies might shoot an alien occasionally, but they are pretty worthless.
At the end of the day, I can see this being sort of a boring game. I will probably change the difficulty setting down to easy, just so I can blow through the game and enjoy it for what it is, a simple shooter. I won't be expecting a story, good characters, or anything else. Another reviewer compared it to Doom. That is pretty accurate for the gameplay. Run and gun, not much thought for anything.
There is no way I could regret buying this for $2, but honestly $5 would be my limit.
If you are an Aliens fan (or just like shooters) then grab it when it is on a deal. If it is full price of $10 or more, pass on it.
If you're a fan of aliens then yes it's worth buying but wait for it to drop very low as it's not even worth $5 in terms of the actual game.
Yes it's nostalgic, I love the Alien franchise and it's worth it to have in my collection as something Alien.
Don't expect much going in and you won't be disappointed.
We all had high hopes for this game, we were hoping for a real and decent Alien themed game, but yet again, we don't get it, I don't think we'll ever really get one. At this point in time it seems like they're just pushing this games out with he Alien name hoping to cash in on the fans and that's sad really.
The patch helps but still doesn't save the game, it's a shame they even released this, it feels unfinished and yes it's buggy but worse is that it's just a disservice to the fans and the Alien name.
The game was way overpriced at launch and way over-hyped and didn't even come close to meeting anyone's expectations.
