I vote that we buy Kidinthehall a copy of this game and make him play it.

I don't see what the major issues with this game are, it seems good looking on the outside in. I've heard great things about the co-op and aside from some misleading trailers I don't see why it gets so much hate. Must be something i'm missing..

This coming from someone who has never played the game.

@OrgeLambart

The AI is the worst I've ever played a game in. Seriously, it's bad.

And also, you hardly fight Xeno's throughout the game. It's mostly other soldiers (mercenaries I think). When you do fight Xeno's, they are not some highly advanced alien predator, but a lifeless shell of something that could be awesome.

$5, maybe I'd justify it with coop, but by itself I still don't think it's worth it.

Even when it was $5, it wouldn't be worth it. You really would have more fun just playing Alien Trilogy on the PS1, the gameplay and AI aren't that different. It's simply having hordes of aliens charge at you head on with no tactics. As for the game, I wouldn't blame Gearbox that much, they were busy making Borderlands 2. They had to hire other studios to handle the project and they hired the wrong people which left them with two options, release a bad game and try to make a quick buck or get sued by Sega. That's why games are a business, you can never make everyone happy and you have to keep on making money to stick around.

bumping this topic so hopefully that guy who made the other topic sees it and I don't have to tell him how dumb he is for even considering buying it to his face.

Seems like a good plan.

If AMD goes down Intel might safely release i9 for $300 and i7 for $200 and i5 for $100 and i3 for free. - su27Chaos

I bought it the other day for $5 because my friend was playing it and said it was worth it. Pls don't hate me.


Sir, are you aware that you are friends with a stupid person?

I've played about 2 hours (Which is the first 3 missions) of the game so far and don't regret my $5 at this point.

Everything is better with friends.

^ I don't regret his $5 either. Good atmosphere though I'm hoping there's a way to get a face hugger to impregnate Cody with a chest burster.
