Aliens Colonial Marines is $5.00 on steam....Is it worth it?

Is it worth this price now?

I thought about getting it myself but the reviews are terrible. Might not be worth the time I didn't get it, but I'm curious to see what people here thing.

I heard it was horribly buggy and sub-standard

CATS. That's about it honestly...

No update could revert all of the changes they made after they demoed the game at a convention and then released the game in a completely different form under review embargo. They don't deserve the money.

I picked it up because I'm a sucker for all things Aliens and it's too cheap to ignore. About an hour in, and my overall feeling so far is that it's a generic, competent shooter. Worth the $5, but I'm glad I didn't pay more.

By paying for it, you're basically saying its okay for them to make the game that bad.

From the footage that i saw when it was released, there's too much wrong with it for a simple patch to fix.

Correction: I'm saying it's okay for them to make a game that bad if they only ask $5 for it.

Yes. Guilty as charged.
