As far as I know, this game is set after the events of Alien 3 (the "true" sequel to Aliens). The question I pose to ya'll is: since the first level is to investigate the abandoned Sulaco, CAN this game offer a plausible explanation for the mysterious egg/facehugger at the beginning of Alien 3 (causing the deaths of Hicks and Newt, totaling Bishop and impregnating Ripley), or will that continue to remain a plot-hole in the film series?
Well, I don't know about this game, but I really doubt Alien 3 (and sequels) will ever be considered good. This plot hole ruined the entire movie. I bet the Sulaco has at least one alien on it, for no reason, just like in "Aliens: Infestation" for DS.
Just don't expect a GOOD explanation. --- 'I can't believe I lost to this SCUM!!!' -Meteo Crusher
Even if they did try to explain it it wouldn't be accepted by the mainstream Alien fanbase because frankly it cannot be explained away. The queen had no reason nor the time to run through the ship, do a cartwheel, pop out an egg, run back to the dropship, climb back inside the dropship, THEN climb back out of the dropship stabbing Bishop through the back in the process... --- If you want to know what a lobotomized person acts like just pay attention to a console fanboy.
I prefer the 'it was a dream' idea. The film is considerably darker, ends with death, and when next Ripley finds herself, everything is very bizarre and people keep quoting lines from the previous films.
Kind of surprises me, actually, nobody actually decided to just run with that. I think it might actually get people to like Alien 3 somewhat.
Alien 3 sucks. I too subscribe to the "it was all a dream" theory. It is the only way I can watch that abomination. --- "How can.. the Prime minister.. support a law.. that makes it illegal for people.. who....What I'm trying to say is.. Oasis rules!"
