Getting horrible reviews. GI gave it a 4/10. Not surprised, looks bad anyway.

Made by same "crew" slash guy who was in charge of the Duke Nukem Forever game. Once I figured that out, I knew that it wouldn't be that great. And alas, reviews suck.

I dunno who that guy was, but he hypes up his games so much, and never seems to deliver. I remember watching a development video of Duke Nukem, and he was all about the game, saying so much stuff, hyping it up, and basically made it sound like the game was going to be great. Result: crap.

Same type of video I watched for development of Aliens. I don't get it, this guy is all talk and doesnt back up his mouth. Just seems like they put out sub par games. Sad.

Randy Pitchford is the CEO of Gearbox, and while I'm not a big Pitchford fan, he didn't even really make Duke Nukem Forever, he just released it. 3D realms and Triptych Games had basically finished it in 2009 but needed a publisher.

Jesus. Can we long-suffering Alien franchise fans finally get something decent? The only franchise fans that suffers more from the continuous tepid dribble of infected failure is the Starship Troopers fanbase. Seriously, for the last 2 decades these two franchises have been dying slow deaths from mediocre games and crappy sequels.

Browns fans got nuthin on Sci-Fi/Action fans right now.

It's not a great game by any means but I'm enjoying it for what it is - an average to below-average shooter with an Aliens license. The sound and environments are spot-on, but the graphics and story leave much to be desired. I've heard multiplayer is fun but haven't played MP to see for myself.
