The story supposedly takes place after the Aliens move if I remember. That is what has me interested.

I was 12 when Aliens came out. To this day it's my favorite movie. The game is a direct sequel to the movie. Plus it has 2 player split screen and 4 player online co-op. The atmosphere of this game looks top notch.

It is like asking what the appeal of an Event Horizon game is.

The fact that it is Event freakin Horizon.

The smart developers make games for the FANS of the game in question, not the casual who jerks it to advertisements and website wallpapers.

Its for fans of the ip. The game is canon (the first game ever to be canon) and is supposedly really faithful to the movies.

To the rest of us, it looks meh.

Then they stopped knowing how to make a proper game in the series.
