I honestly don't think Aliens Colonial Marines is as bad as it's made out to be

I'm having a lot of fun with the game. I find it a pretty acceptable game with a very nice Aliens atmosphere.

Anyone else quite enjoying the game?

I am enjoying it. I do understand why people are acting the way they are though. Odd, people don't like to be lied too.

It's definitely going down as one of my guilty pleasures.

Co op can make even the worst games very enjoyable.

I'll admit that the writing for the game is pretty terrible though.

But even when defending the game the best you can say is "pretty acceptable", hardly a glowing review is it?

The reason a lot of people came down on the game is that several features heavilly mentioned in previews are missing & the game just seems to have been rushed to hit a release date. Several interviews since seem to indicate that was exactly the case.

Some people liked Duke Nukem Forever too, and didn't think it was anywhere near as bad as all the Reviews and majority of gamers did.
Doesn't make the game worth $60 bucks.

Confusing "Game I enjoy" for "Good game".
The opposite is just as common.

Pretty much this. I don't like Half-Life but I recognize what makes it a good game. Likewise, I enjoy the Dynasty Warriors series and recognize the many faults that make it out to be a bad game.
