Aliens: Colonial Marines (Xbox 360)

The only level that generated some terror, ironically, is the one someone linked to above with the Youtube video. In that level you're trying to sneak past some blind aliens who can only detect you with sound -- so they shuffle around and "shut down" and then you go past them. Very claustrophobic and kinda effective, and really the only time in the game when I felt some genuine suspense. (That's not a glitch; those aliens are supposed to behave that way)
Everything else -- outside of the novelty of hearing the Aliens music and the sound effects -- is just SO lame, especially all the outdoor enviroments and such. No detail, nothing to hook you in, even the aliens jumping around get old -- fast. Then because there's obviously not enough there to sustain your interest, they throw in all kinds of human enemies who aren't any more entertaining. Very sad. The multiplayer is a total bust, I tried playing several rounds as the aliens in TDM and our team got shredded every time.
At this point I don't even think this is worth a $20 purchase. Maybe $10 if they come out with some DLC that's fun -- but I wouldn't hold my breath.
