Good god, that looks atrocious. Are those Xenomorph zombies?

So anyway, I decided to say "fuck it" and actually sought out spoilers to the story after reading the GiantBomb review. This website has a pretty brief writeup of the full storyline if you want spoilers: http://www.denofgeek...l-marines-story

At any rate, HOLY Fuck, it wasn't just the gameplay and graphics they massively screwed up, but the story as well
Major spoilers ahead:

Seriously, if you're thinking about playing this game just for the storyline, think long and hard if you like your intelligence insulted.

I don't see why you believed it was fake since it was directly from the game. Sucks that the game turned out like this though,would be nice if someone could make an Aliens game that was as good as AVP2 (2001).

I thought it was fake because I was shocked that a major video game release could look so unprofessional and sloppy. Many indie release games have far smaller budgets and manage to look better than that.

Considering the game has been going in & out of cancellation for around 9-13 years through multiple developers,is it surprising that its another Duke Nukem?

Wow. Just stick to Boderlands and stop ruining games Gearbox. Give your games to competent developers who actually give a sh*t. They tried ruining Brothers in Arms. Couldn't get this right...

I'm so bummed about how bad this game turned out. I had such high hopes after seeing the "game play" demo. What makes this even worse is that I don't see any other developers revisiting this franchise anytime soon.

/sidenote: That DS game looks kind of fun. I might have to check it out.

I would like to note that I got through that part of the game last night and that is supposed to happen. That's not a result of poor AI or anything. Having said that I will say the game is nowhere near as bad as the reviewers make it out to be.

I bought 3 copies of this game. One for me, and one for 2 of my friends who are having birthdays. We like to do co-op and I thought this would be a great opportunity. I bought them before the release date from a place I know that does things like that. Anyway, because I picked it up before hand I hadn't had a chance to read any reviews. The only thing I had heard is that it played a little like Left 4 Dead.
We will be playing this game soon, and I will report back with a good and honest opinion for you all. From what I do see so far though...I am going to say it Does Not play like Left 4 Dead LOL. Also for the dude that made the comparison to Doom 3, I have heard that multiple times!

This is by far the worst game I had to play. Nothing was good except the sound.
In one area I was able to get a health pack by reaching through an unbreakale window. I'm glad it rented it.

I would imagine its because there is still a threat of Sega taking them to court.

What are they going to say? This is not like Duke Nukem, where they could semi-legitimately claim that the game was of historical interest, it was supposed to be old-fashioned, it was more of an artifact of its time than a fun game in and of itself, etc. etc.

They can't exactly just come out and say, "Yeah, Aliens is just a bad game and you shouldn't buy it."

I got the game from RedBox on a whim and while it's certainly not great, it's not terrible. The explosions are graphically the same as PS1 games however.

Just finished the 1K on this turd last night. Unfortunately since there is a season pass (and thus probably some DLC with achievements), I will have to hold onto it :wall:

It wasn't totally awful but I just felt bad wasting my GC from my birthday on this. So glad I passed on the CE though.

I mean who makes a fucking game where you have to do misc kill challenges in a set order? Why not have it like Borderlands where you can do them at any time. That is just fucking stupid! The campaign was just meh, very easy to complete, I honestly didn't give a shit about the story after a certain point. Thankfully I have this done. Now back to playing some adequate FPSes.

EDIT: I forgot to mention if you are an Aliens fan this game takes a gigantic shit on the Aliens lore. A few things make no sense since this is supposed to tie in with the movies.

Actually, even the stuff in the AvP crossovers, I do not consider Aliens canon cause it hurts to accept them.

If you view them as 'off-shoots,' then maybe they're easier to digest.

the only reason any1 would be buy this game at day one for the retail price is, because they are fans of the alien franchise, LOL

because even fans aren't that stupid. ;)

Taking things seriously for a moment, it's pretty sad that this happened. Guess there's no such thing as an impartial preview anymore. Or an honest developer.

When you look at it, this series was strung out for so many years and worked over by so many different writers and filmmakers that it's hard to really accept there being a 'canon' between them all, and especially between Aliens and everything that came after. I think most fans -- at least Aliens fans -- would be thrilled if they made an actual sequel to Aliens and just pretended Alien 3 and 4 were Ripley's fever dreams and never happened. They certainly play more like silly nightmares (killing off the whole cast of Aliens in 3, which pissed everyone off, then bringing Ripley back from the dead in the ridiculous Alien Resurrection) than logical story continuations of the first two films. This game tried to do something like that -- but it just didn't work out.

I guess in my little universe every one of the films is its own entity. The series doesn't really hang together as a whole 'franchise' except for the connection between 1 and 2, and even then the two films are, intentionally, quite different -- which is also the good thing about them. Aliens isn't just a rehash of Alien.
